Laverne Cox in Thai Nguyen at the Directors Guild of America Awards 2017

Posted on February 06, 2017

Can’t fault Miss Laverne for not knowing how to work a skirt.

Although we’re reminded of our oft-made point that there’s a correlation between aggressive skirt-working on the red carpet and the level of discomfort or uncertainty on the part of the wearer.

 

 

Miss Lady likes to get the most out of her skirt, it would seem, but maybe she’s secretly having the same issues with this dress that we do.

 


It’s a pretty color on her, but the bodice is a little odd and distracting. The neckline is bumpy and uneven and the trim looks crooked. It’s a shame, because the bottom half really works.

 

 

But whatever, because we’re loving the black hair. It’s a great, dramatic change for her after all this time as a Beyonce-blonde. We’d like to see her break a little out of her hairstyle rut and try a new do now and then, but at least this is a step in the right direction.
