Do you have a Netflix account (or someone else’s password)? Cool. So you already know Vicky Jeudy, (Janae Watson) on the beloved Orange is the New Black. She, along with a few of her co-stars, ditched the prison garb for the runway this week and I caught up with the beautiful star between shows and table reads.

How many hours of sleep did you get last night?

I slept for seven hours last night. That’s not  bad considering it’s fashion week and I’m juggling events, shows and script work.

What do you need in your bag?

I love my new Nanette Lepore clutch. Right now, I have my cell phone, charger (my phone is always dying), a basic lip gloss, pressed powder, and gum in it. My cell phone charger is always with me. I’m constantly looking for an outlet to charge my phone. It’s time to invest in those portable chargers for the moments you can’t find a place to plug in!

What are your favorite shows?

My favorite shows besides Orange is the New Black (naturally) are Orphan Black and Homeland!

[Ed. note: We meant fashion shows, but we’ll roll with it!]

What has been your favorite outfit you’ve worn to NYFW?

My favorite outfit from fashion week was the CZAR by Cesar Galindo dress.  I loved twirling in it, and each time I moved, the dress would flow in the wind. Everyone should own a dress like this in the wardrobe.

What’s your favorite mid-day snack to keep you going through these crazy days?

Today in between shows I ate a bagel from Murray’s. Actually, it was a really good lunch because I was in a hurry. I usually go for a standard smoothie but there’s something about a nice New York City bagel that felt fitting for a Monday afternoon treat!
