Bling Ring: As soon as Schilling walked into the sunlit studio, wearing a black sweater, leather pants, and Nike high-tops, she homed in on the racks of bright orange clothes. “Wow, I love it! It’s such a cool idea, ” she said. “And I love the jewels,” she added of more than $1 million worth diamond bracelets and antique rings- complete with their own security guards.
Correctional Color: While the actress chatted with her agent (who’d made a surprise visit), makeup artist Dotti and manicurist Tatyana Molot blended a custom nail polish for her to wear by combining red, orange, and brown shades. ” It’s was versatile, and it’s one of a kind,” said Molot. Once the color dried, Schilling posed in her first look of the day: A plunging one-piece swimsuit, stilettos, and a fur coat.
Con Air: After shooting a second look, Schilling took a break to eat grilled chicken with asparagus and cauliflower for lunch, as well as Dotti’s homemade pasta salad. After the two exchanged recipes, Schilling posed for the cover shot, then headed out to meet a friend at the museum. She has a early morning flight to Los Angeles the next day to film her new movie, a comedy called The Overnight.
Taylor Schilling Allure Magazine Interview
In the upcoming issue of Allure Magazine, Taylor opens up about her approach to body image and what it’s like to play an inmate onscreen. “It’s totally liberating,” she said. “There’s freedom in not having to make it about how my jeans fit or what my boobs look like in a top. All I have to do now is play.”
At 29, actress Taylor Schilling is the un-Kardashian—a woman known simply for her work. She holds her personal life closely to her. She has dated actors, yes, she concedes, but not famous ones. And maybe she has her eye on a handsome celebrity conquest? “Not that I’m going to tell you about! No, no! Not really!”
She also got candid about self-esteem issues growing up. “It was tough at home, and it was tough at school… And my experience was painful, so painful. There was a period of time I had very short hair, and I had glasses, and I was very tall for my age.”
As for her looks, the blond beauty hardly has an ego, and she always stays grounded. “I don’t feel bound by my face or my body,” she said. “I don’t feel like that’s the biggest gift I have to offer the world. I feel like there are more parts of me to offer than that.”
