Laverne Cox ‘mixing things up’ at NYFW

Laverne Cox is thinking about rocking an afro in the near future.

The Orange is the New Black actress is currently in the Big Apple enjoying all the runway shows as part of the exciting stylish festivities.

Laverne sat in the front row at the Desigual show on Thursday and while at the event the transgender star spoke about her makeup.

“I do smoky eyes and nude lips, and I want to mix things up,” she told The New York Post, noting she is beginning to get bored with her status-quo cosmetic appearance.

Although she is cultivating the courage to debut a bold new makeup look in the near future, this is not necessarily the case with her hair.

However despite minor reservations, Laverne is considering changing her hairdo in a major way very soon.

“I am wearing extensions right now, and my real hair is natural, so my team and I are thinking about a ’fro,” she shared.

Desigual went all out in terms of infusing vibrant colour into the designs for their spring-summer 2016 collection.

Models wore playful ripped denim, flowy skirts, striped leggings and other bold neon patterns as they graced the runway with fun accessories like a selfie stick and spectacular headgear.

Laverne seemed to be having fun in the front row, as according to AM New York she kept voguing her hands in the air and tapping her red soled Christian Louboutin heels onto the floor as pop music blared.

The actress wasn’t the only celebrity with incredible seats at the Desigual show, as photographer Nigel Barker and fashion legend Iris Apfel also attended the high-profile affair. Supermodels Karolina Kurkova and Irina Shayk made an appearance too.
