You probably know Dascha Polanco, goddess in human form, from her role as Dayanara Diaz in Orange Is The New Black.

And when she doesn't have us all on the edge of our seats (WTF to that finale though), Dascha is basically an all-around queen in real life.

She's been an amazing body positivity role model, and rocks her curves everywhere from NYFW...

...and essentially anywhere she can.

She's basically one of those rare unicorns that looks good 24/7.

And we don't spend nearly as much time as we should talking about this goddess that walks among us.
