Laverne Cox is coming to the E! red carpet
Following the news that longtime host Giuliana Rancic would be stepping down from her post on E!'s red carpet, NBCUniversal announced that Laverne Cox will be taking over that coverage — and be working on some "celebrity-based interview specials" — beginning with the 2021 awards season, Deadline reports. Cox said: "For many years I would wake up early on awards show days, get my snacks in place and watch E!'s coverage all day long. I dreamed of walking red carpets. Now, not only have I had several fun and amazing personal red carpet moments, I also get to be a red carpet guide for E!'s discerning audience and chat with my colleagues and folks I deeply admire for these very special events in their lives. I can't wait to get started while hopefully serving up fashion fantasies for the ages, honey." {Deadline}
