Dascha Polanco has given an insight into how she'll be prepping for the Emmys.

The cream of the TV crop will be making their way down the red carpet for the annual Emmy Awards this Sunday night.

Prison-set drama Orange Is the New Black fared well last year, picking up three awards during its first time at the ceremony. This year it's nominated in four categories, and star Dascha is going all out with her wardrobe.

"Last year I did kind of a princess-y thing, this year I’m going for va va voom — embrace those curves! [Houghton is] my go-to designer," she divulged to The Hollywood Reporter, adding she hasn't yet picked her dress.

As well as putting the time in when it comes to wardrobe, the 33-year-old channels her efforts into looking and feeling good before the big day.

Her beauty prep covers everything from eating right to having a little pamper session.

"Juicing, body scrubs, massage — it’s all about healthy skin, feeling great and clean, and then I fragrance it up! I have a whole ritual about fragrancing myself up," she smiled.

"It depends on what the mood is. I’m into [Le Labo] Santal. For award shows I wear all my exclusives, like Creed or L’Artisan. Or this fire one, it’s woodsy and a men’s cologne that’s exclusive to Barneys. It’s a men’s fragrance I like to wear at awards shows."

She'll also be making sure her newly dyed locks are on point. Dascha has never been scared to experiment with her hair, previously sporting grey and red hues. However her latest look has been the most challenging.

"[It was a] very difficult process to get rose gold. We were embracing colour tones and our undertones as Latinas," she said of her work with hair stylist Cynthia Alvarez.
