Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli Walked Their First Red Carpet Together as Wife and Wife
Just one month ago, Orange is the New Black star Samira Wiley and writer Lauren Morelli got married, and after stepping away from the spotlight for a few weeks to go on their (probably spectacular) honeymoon in Italy, the couple made their first official red carpet appearance as wife and wife.
Last night, at the premiere of Hulu’s haunting new series The Handmaid’s Tale, Wiley and Morelli walked the red carpet looking *stunning.* Wiley stars in the series, alongside Elisabeth Moss and Alexis Bledel, which is about a totalitarian state in a dystopian future.

Ugh, they look so in love!
Wiley returned from the honeymoon, immediately embarking on a press tour for The Handmaid’s Tale. The series has been called one of the most important shows of 2017 and is centered around a society in which women’s rights have been fundamentally taken away.

Of taking roles in politically relevant shows, Wiley told People at The Handmaid’s Tale premiere at the Tribeca Film festival that she feels lucky to take the opportunities. She said, “I’ve been really really lucky to have started with a show like [OITNB] and now be on a show like this. I find myself lucky to be in this position, but at the heart of it I just want to be able to bring life to characters that are provocative. All of my characters have something in them that I wish I could emulate one day.”
Looking flawless AF as usual, ladies. And also, brb, going to watch the first few episodes on Hulu right now!
