The stars of Netflix’s “Orange is The New Black” were the early fan favorites on the Emmy Award red carpet after series stars such as Laverne Cox and Natasha Lyonne stopped to chat with fans and sign autographs.

Cox dazzled in a long white gown, while Lyonne smiled and joked with fans, spinning her hand around her head in a sign that the whole experience was crazy.

Selenis Leyva kept up with the show’s motif, posing with a pair of handcuffs for a fashion camera.

The bleachers aren’t on the main carpet this year, so stars have to make a detour if they want to greet fans.

Those who did were showered with applause and well wishes.
