There are two things we love about this right off the bat:
“Orange is the New Black” star Laverne Cox attends ELLE’s Annual Women in Television Celebration in West Hollywood, California.
1. That we’ve reached the point in our culture when a mainstream celebrity and fashion site like ours can feature a celebrity transgender woman on the red carpet.
2. That she didn’t fuck it up to the point where we’d have to yell at her. She’s gorgeous and the dress is cute and interesting.
Having said that, while this look gets points for being bold and visually interesting, it also skirts right up to the line of ice dancer. The netting in the skirt did not need the visual callback in a pair of fishnets. And the white horizontal line would look terrible on just about anyone. A thin red belt and a pair of black tights (or sheers) would fix this right up. Also, a ring or bracelet would be nice.
When are you coming back into our lives, Orange is the New Black?
