Laverne Cox took the stage at the Emmy Awards in a gorgeous gilded gown in order to present the award for Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special. The 32-year-old “Orange is the New Black” star certainly stole the show as she showed off her enviable figure in the flashy gold number.
Laverne never fails to impress us with her glamorous style for these events, and she surpassed expectations in this lavish beaded gown from Naeem Khan’s Fall 2016 collection. The talented actress and activist altered the original runway version a little bit, opting for less material by removing the sleeves and crew neckline featured on the original design.

Laverne’s custom gown bared a little more skin, featureing a sexy, deep V-neckline. Sheer fabric covered in a gorgeous pattern of sparkling bead details hugged her feminine figure tightly and fanned out in an elegant fishtail at her feet.
Laverne’s makeup perfectly complemented the gold hues of her ensemble. She applied highlighting bronze and gold tints on her eyelids and cheeks. She swept her curled blonde locks to one side in order to show off a pair of Butani Jewellery ear cuffs, and accessorized further with some bold Hearts On Fire and Mattia Cielo rings and a funky gold Atelier Swarovski clutch.
