    Ryan Seacrest's ex-girlfriend went with a group all dressed like characters from the popular Netflix series.

    Julianne's brother, Dancing With The Stars' Derek Hough, commended the group's "genius costumes" in a post on Instagram. The photo has since been deleted.

    Caption: “Orange is the new Black !! Genius costumes. Love how much they commit and have fun with a show they love. #womanunit.”

    But some people were not too thrilled about Hough's decision to darken her skin tone.

    A COSTUME is hair, clothes, affectations. Not skin color. You work in Hollywood, you should know this already, @juliannehough
