Laverne Cox Poses Completely Naked for Allure's Nudes Feature

Laverne Cox sprawls out naked in this new image for Allure magazine’s Nudes feature in the May 2015 issue, on newsstands April 28.

Also photographed in the buff for the feature were Furious 7′s Jordana Brewster, VikingsKatheryn Winnick, House of CardsSandrine Holt, and Sleepy Hollow‘s Nicole Beharie.

“I said no initially, thought about it, and said no again,” Laverne said about posing naked for the issue. “But Im a black transgender woman. I felt this could be really powerful for the communities that I represent. Black women are not often told that we’re beautiful unless we align with certain standards. Trans women certainly are not told we’re beautiful. Seeing a black transgender woman embracing and loving everything about her body might be inspiring for some folks. There’s a beauty in the things we think are imperfect. It sounds very cliché, but its true.”
