Diane Guerrero: My fashion regrets

Diane Guerrero has been afraid to take a risk on the red carpet in the past.

The 28-year-old actress stars in hit Netflix series Orange Is the New Black as well as comedy Jane the Virgin. Being part of two big shows means she has to attend a lot of big events, but Diane doesn’t feel like she’s always got it right on the red carpet.

“Yeah, but those were the times where I kept it way too basic, where I was afraid to take a risk,” she replied when Refinery29 asked if there were any looks that hadn’t worked. “Those are the times I look back on and say, ‘Oh I didn’t look so good there.’ It was because I was afraid to step outside my comfort zone.”

Diane felt a good example was at this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. While the cast of Orange is the New Black picked up the gong for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, the star was kicking herself that she ditched part of her look before the ceremony.

“I wore this beautiful, red Jill Stuart dress. It was so silly. I had this really pretty light blue bag that I wore with it, but I didn’t wear it on the carpet,” she explained. “The blue looked fantastic with the red, but that was one of the times where I was just like, ‘Why didn’t I wear the bag on the carpet? That was an accessory. It was part of my outfit.’

“I just got nervous that it really wouldn’t take well. But it’s silly, like if I feel like it looks good then nothing else should matter.”

As well as making an effort with her wardrobe, Diane likes to take care of her skin too.

“I’ve been getting into Lush. I absolutely love their products,” she added. “I love the Herbalism Scrub. I love the Tea Tree Toner. It’s everything. My skin has never been better.”
