Laverne Cox Is British Vogue’s First Trans Cover Star

Posted on August 02, 2019

“Orange Is the New Black” star Laverne Cox covers the September 2019 issue of British Vogue magazine photographed by Peter Lindbergh and styled by Grace Coddington.




“I am completely overwhelmed and overjoyed to share this cover. Being on the cover of Vogue magazine has been a dream of mine since I was a child. To get to share this cover with this group of women who inspire me, who are truly forces for change is deeply humbling. That it’s British Vogue is even more special to me because British Vogue was the first to feature a black model on its cover, Donyale Luna in May 1966. Thank you so much Edward Enninful and Guest editor Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Sussex for including me.”
