Laverne Cox Goes Nude for Allure
Laverne Cox bares it all for Allure Magazine’s “Nude” issue. The ‘Orange is the New Black’ star was shot laying across a linen cloth in her Beyonce-style wig showing off her amazing and highly toned lady-cakes and full décolletage. We ain’t mad, girl! Cox, 30, reveals she turned down Allure’s request to pose nude at first but had a change of heart. “I’m a Black transgender woman. I felt this could be really powerful for the communities that I represent.” She continues, “Black women are not often told that we’re beautiful unless we align with certain standards. Trans women certainly are not told we’re beautiful. ”
The Time 100 recipient also says her nude shot may inspire someone. “Seeing a Black transgender woman embracing and loving everything about herself might be inspiring to some other folks. There’s beauty in the things we think are imperfect. That sounds very cliché, but it’s true.”
We’re so here for her bravery and we can not wait for OITNB season three!
