Laverne Cox likes to wear everything from vampy looks to ethereal outfits.

Laverne Cox's access to better designers means her style has become much more distinguished.

The actress has been a Hollywood trailblazer, leading the way for other people from the trans community wishing to get into entertainment. She's always been very vocal about her own transgender journey and feels like now she is finally in the place where she can really shine on the red carpet.

“There are a lot of designers who want to dress us, which is a wonderful blessing, but I’m not sample size,” she smiled to America's InStyle of her and stylist Christina Pacelli’s approach to achieving that 'Wow!' moment. “So designers, they have to have time to make custom work.

“I think I look better than I did when I started because we have access to different, better designers, better clothes."

Laverne has already been making her presence known at the start of the 2016 awards season, wowing in white at the Golden Globes earlier this month (Jan16). She donned a floor length Mark Zunino gown, which featured sheer mesh detailing and a cape.

The 31-year-old says it's not just her designer access that has changed over the years, but her own personal style too.

"I think my taste has changed as well," she mused. "Christina has had a really amazing influence on me. We always like to keep a little bit of an edge but be lady-like, sometimes be sexy.

“Sometimes I want to be a little vampy, a little sexy. And sometimes I want to be a little edgy and a little more modern. And sometimes I want to be just sort of classic and elegant, and ethereal.”
