Orange Is the New Black star Dascha Polanco turned heads on the purple carpet at the 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday night in an eye-catching white Christian Siriano gown with oversized pink bows adorning her shoulders. But the bold look is dividing social media, with some comparing the extra shoulder fabric to wings or flotation devices.
Polanco’s daring look earned plenty of praise from those who admired the sleeves in all their glory, accessorizing her gown with a high ponytail and jeweled drop earrings. As she made her way down the red carpet, she made sure to show off the elaborate design.
Many were applauding the fashion moment.

Dascha Polanco of #OITNB is a stunning blend of cream, pink and bows. She recently finished “In the Heights” and is working on her music and songwriting skills. She was so damn good in #WTSU #Emmys2019 pic.twitter.com/1tPcVCieQB— Cynthia Littleton (@Variety_Cynthia) September 22, 2019
But not everyone was on board with the oversized bows, which drew comparisons to everything from floaties for children to a shrimp cocktail.
