Orange Is the New Black star Taryn Manning has apologised for slating her stylist for dressing her in a $200 dress on the SAGs red carpet.

Manning was unaware that her Adrianna Papell dress was a relative bargain compared to those worn by her peers on the night.

On Wednesday, when asked by TMZ about her dress, she said she had not known about the price.

“It’s wack that my stylist didn’t tell me that,” she told TMZ.  She said she appreciated it was an attainable look but she felt she deserved a pricier gown.

“It still sucks for me. I want to be in like a superstar gown,” she said, adding that she had given the designer "a lot of press" and, "She should pay me a lot of money.”

Manning has now taken to Instagram to address the inevitable backlash over her comments.

“I was completely caught off guard when all of the press about my dress was about the cost, which I knew nothing about, and I felt used for someone else’s gain," she wrote in a lengthy post.

She concluded, "But I am happy to be the proof that there is more to feeling confident, beautiful and happy on the inside than just a price tag."
