Hey ladies, Dascha Polanco gives your girl crushes her stamp of approval.

And why wouldn't she? The Dominican star plays Dayanara Diaz on 'Orange is the New Black' and is the poster child for #WCW for plenty of women out there. She's definitely a forced to be reckoned with. We'll see more of her on the big screen this Christmas with J. Law in the upcoming film, 'Joy,' in which Polanco plays Lawrence's BFF. Polanco's career is clearly gaining a lot of momentum, as she was recently honored at the Latino Media Awards for her work on 'OINTB.' She was presented with the Lupe Award which haims to spotlight Latino talent or producers who have received a significant amount of buzz and shown great promise as a future artist.
