This is a great little dress for her. When she first started making the red carpet rounds, we really hoped she’d reach this point; where big-name designers are offering her things to wear. It makes a difference in a rising star’s career, especially if she’s someone whose body is outside the size-2 petite norm that the entertainment industry imposes on women.
In other words, it’s important, in a very real-world way, that Laverne Cox is being embraced by the community of people who, for good or bad, have a massive influence on how beauty is defined by the culture. It’s as important as someone like Melissa McCarthy getting a custom red carpet look from Calvin Klein or Lupita Nyong’o getting the cover of Vogue.
Laverne Cox attends Logo TV’s “Trailblazers” Pride Event and Telecast at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City in an Hervé Léger dress accessorized with a ring and earrings by Nicole Romano ring and bracelets by Moritz Glik and Miguel Ases.
Still have issues with her hair and makeup, but that’s a perfect little dress for her. We never think this about red carpet wear but we hope she got to keep it.
