Taryn Manning Unhappy Her SAG Awards Dress Was Only $200

We love it when celebrities wear inexpensive dresses to red carpet events but, apparently, the feeling isn’t mutual for some actors. Taryn Manning, who got praised for wearing a $200 Adrianna Papell dress to the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards, was not happy when she found out that her dress was so affordable.

The “Orange Is the New Black” actress told TMZ that it wasn’t cool that her 2018 SAG Awards dress was only a mere $200.

“It’s whack,” she said. “It’s whack that the stylist didn’t tell me that. But now everybody else can afford it so that’s what’s cool about it, but it still sucks for me. I wanna be in, like, a superstar gown, y’ know? So that designer got a lot of press. She should pay me a lot of money.”

The following are pictures of Taryn Manning at the 2018 SAG Awards wearing the dress in question.

Taryn Manning has since apologized on her Instagram account for ranting to the paparazzi about her SAG Awards dress. She said she was caught off-guard when she was bombarded with press questions about the cost of her dress, and the situation made her feel used.

She also said that while she loved her look and that she felt beautiful that night, “every artist dreams of wearing couture on a red carpet if given the opportunity.”

Do you think Taryn Manning deserves better? Even if her dress was only $200, her stylist did still outfit her in thousand-dollar fine jewelry pieces and $750 “Dolce Vita” white leather ankle-strap pumps from Aquazzura.
