LAVERNE COX to Model for BEYONCE’S Ivy Park Campaign
Fresh off of a Bey Day that had no less than the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama dressing up as Beyonce from the Formation video, we have a new exciting partnership between Beyonce and another brilliant woman who is here to majestically own the spotlight — Laverne Cox, one of the superstars of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black. Beyonce got Laverne Cox to star and model for the ads for her Ivy Park athleisure line and the photos are incredible. Check them out.
Laverne Cox is understandably very excited for the opportunity to work with Queen Bey, saying —
“To be honest, it doesn’t feel real. It feels like some weird fantasy that I’ve had since Destiny’s Child. It feels amazing that I get to be a part of this brand that has already inspired me and be working with a woman who has especially been a huge inspiration to me and so many folks around the world.
The Ivy Park line comes with this statement — “True beauty and power are born out of strength of character and defined from the inside out. There is no one standard of beauty.”, and as one of the first transgender superstars and sex symbols, Laverne Cox is certainly that.
