Behind the Shoot: Laura Prepon

Go behind the scenes of our July 2014 cover shoot with OITNB's Laura Prepon!


Laura Prepon used a get-out-of-jail-free card to take time from her busy schedule for our cover shoot. She showed up to our Los Angeles studio donning black from head to toe, including her gorgeous locks! Star of the hit women’s prison drama “Orange Is the New Black,” Laura ditched her jumpsuit for the day and grabbed her favorite running gear, giving tons of sassy energy to our cameras—and embracing her “That ’70s Show” roots with her girl-next-door demeanor as she chatted with our crew in between shots.

Cover Look

Photographer Scott Draper tested the camera while Laura goofed around in her favorite cover look—Lululemon Run: Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve ($58, lululemon.com), Body Language Sportswear Vscrunch Capri ($76, bodylanguagesportswear.com) and Nike Flyknit Air Max ($225, nike.com).

Great Escape

Laura practiced a mad dash on a mini getaway trike and embraced her inner wild child with her edgy look from Electric & Rose.

That ’70s Music

Laura and the crew rocked out to Creedence Clearwater Revival—a blast from the actress’s past life in sitcom stardom as Eric Forman’s main squeeze and longtime neighbor, redhead Donna Pinciotti.

Green Choice

The whole crew noshed on lunch from Panini Café, while Laura enjoyed a kale salad with quinoa and ginger-papaya vinaigrette, as well as a side of cauliflower mashed potatoes with vegan butter, from Veggie Grill.

Final Touch-Up

Makeup artist Spencer Barnes and hair stylist Jonathan Colombini kept Laura looking fabulous in between camera clicks, jumping in to touch up her look to ensure she would pop right off our cover!
