Laverne Cox works the runway like no other while strutting her stuff in the Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection Show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2015 on Thursday (February 12) at the Theater at Lincoln Center in New York City.
Laverne has some big news that she appears to have been celebrating with her amazing runway moves – she just got cast in a CBS legal drama pilot Doubt. It is about a “transgender Ivy League-educated attorney, described as “competitive as she is compassionate. She’s fierce, funny and the fact that she’s experienced injustice first hand makes her fight all the harder for her clients,” according to Entertainment Weekly.
FYI: Ciara is wearing a SAFiYAA dress. Zendaya is wearing a Rubin Singer dress.

Rosie O’Donnell makes her last appearance on The View on Thursday (February 12) in New York City.
The 52-year-old actress received a standing ovation from the audience as she made her entrance.
Before the end of the episode, Rosie brought out her daughter Dakota to say her farewell.
“I want to say thank you to the cast, the crew, and mostly to Barbara Walters, who has always looked out for me and my career,” Rosie said. “I want to thank her for making the show and letting me be on it twice.”
She added, “We’ve had fun on the show and I hope we’re going to have more. I have a glue gun and will travel.”
The 52-year-old talk show host announced last week that she would be leaving the show, but on the Monday (February 9) episode, she didn’t mention it at all.
“Everyone wanted me to talk about it. I didn’t want to talk about it,” Rosie says in the new video, citing she already gave an explanation over the weekend.
“The truth is I had a heart attack two years ago and stress is very bad for heart attack survivors. You should minimize your stress, maximize your exercise, and control your diet,” Rosie said. “So that’s what I’m doing. I’m minimizing my stress by leaving The View and the stress that I’m having at home was not as easily remediable. It’s hard. Marriage is complicated and I’ve got five kids, four of them are teenagers and there’s lots of stuff going on at home, and lots of stuff going on at work. The only thing I can really control is the work, by leaving. I can turn that volume down all the way to zero.”
“I can confirm that Rosie and her wife Michelle split in November,” Rosie‘s rep told Page Six. “Rosie has teens and an infant at home that need her attention. This has been a very stressful situation. She is putting her personal health and family first. ABC has been wonderfully understanding and supportive of her personal decision to leave The View. Next week will be her last.”
“And no matter what you read anywhere, Rosie Perez is also coming back after she is done rehearsing her play [Larry David’s Broadway show]…regardless of what you hear in other shows or read in magazines as I did last night at 11:40 and went what the…” Rosie O’Donnell said, before going into an expletive string of words while the camera cut away and bleeped her out.
