Laverne Cox Just Reinvented The Coiffed Updo

She looked like a real-life princess on this red carpet

by Tembe Denton-Hurst

Last night at the final Orange is The New Black premiere, Laverne Cox proved that purple is her shade, high ponytails are her aesthetic, and that she is, without a doubt, the reigning queen of good red carpet photos.

The Emmy-nominated star stunned last night in a Christian Siriano dress that, while showstopping, paled in comparison to her perfectly coiffed updo. The look—an Ursula Stephen masterpiece—served major Beyoncé-on-the-cover-of-B'Dayvibes, and reinvented the messy high ponytail for the red carpet. Cox's signature blonde lengths were piled on top of her head to create a cascade of perfectly arranged waves and curls—a look we want to copy ASAP.

Cox topped off the look with a vibrant purple eye look, nude lip, and nude nails. And even though we're sad to see our Sophia go, this look definitely served as a proper goodbye.
