CFDA Fashion Awards 2016: Laverne Cox in Marc Bouwer

Posted on June 07, 2016

“Orange is the New Black” actress Laverne Cox attends the 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards held at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.

 

Thank goodness someone remembered to bring the drama to the CFDA Awards red carpet, darlings. It’s been a decidedly un-dramatic turn so far.

Trust Miss Laverne to bring it, though. This pushes most of the Diva buttons. It’s dramatic, sweeping and attention-seeking; a dress that’s as much about creating a highly photogenic moment as it is about simply, yknow… covering someone. It’s theater as much as it is clothing. And that’s all well and good. It’s also to be commended for its impeccaple fit. But to be perfectly honest, we’re just not feeling the color at all. It’s a skin dress. She has skin wings.

We just ruined it for you, didn’t we?

Why couldn’t this be red? Or white? Wouldn’t that have been so much more striking?
