Back in 2014, Laverne Cox made history when she became the first transgender person to appear on the cover of Time magazine. And while it's hard to top that kind of barrier-breaking editorial — and Cox has fronted many other glossies before and since — the actress's most recent cover just might be her best one yet, especially in fashion terms. The actress appears on the latest issue of indie magazine Ladygunn in a fantastic red beret and a thick floating stripe of sage/seafoam eyeliner. It's truly perfect.
Cox was photographed by Janell Shirtcliff and styled by duo Jessica Loria and Kelly Williams, who dressed her for the cover in a Reformation top and Maje sweater with Alexis Bittar jewelry. Deja Davenport is responsible for the stellar makeup, Neeko Abriol did her hair and Cox's powerful, confident gaze is her own. From the images we've seen so far, the fresh styling and beauty throughout the shoot delivers a fresh and quirky dose of retro vibes. Feels appropriate for Cox's upcoming upcoming role as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in Fox's TV remake of "Rocky Horror Picture Show," no?
