Orange Is the New Black may be over, but on Sunday, the beloved cast came together at the Emmy Awards in LA. Laverne Cox, Dascha Polanco, and Natasha Lyonne (who was accompanied by longtime boyfriend Fred Armisen) swapped their orange Litchfield jumpsuits for some beautiful ensembles, and honestly, we almost forgot what they looked like out of costume.

Laverne, who was joined by ACLU lawyer Chase Strangio, received a nomination for outstanding guest actress in a drama series for her role as Sophia Burset in OITNB. While on the red carpet, Laverne told E! News that she hopes to raise awareness on the upcoming US Supreme Court case that will decide "whether Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 applies to cases of anti-LGBT discrimination." "A lot of people aren't talking about this case and it has implications for the LGBT community," Laverne explained. "But it has implication for women and anyone who doesn't conform to someone else's idea of how you should be... A man or woman or neither!"

Meanwhile, Natasha scored a nod for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series for Russian Doll. See more of the OITNB cast ahead!
