Laverne Cox Wore Hakan Akkaya To The ‘Charlie’s Angels’ LA World Premiere

Laverne Cox Wore Hakan Akkaya To The ‘Charlie’s Angels’ LA World Premiere

I did see Laverne Cox take to the red carpet for the ‘Charlie’s Angels’ world premiere held at Westwood Regency Theater on Monday (November 11) in Los Angeles, California, but I think the shock blocked my memory, as I forgot to post her look.

Now.  We have all be crying out for something new from Laverne that didn’t read, “Beyonce,” or “gala gown girl.”

As the saying goes, be careful what you wish for, as the actress was channeling her inner baddie wearing lace, barely-there-at-all gown created by Hakan Akkaya that single-handedly is keeping the naked sheer trend dress alive.  

The long-sleeved, high-neck dress was made almost entirely from black lace, though two velvet panels were placed on the front and back with strategically-placed sequin strips across her chest.

This is the very definition of leaving nothing to the imagination.

On a positive note, this look does display her gorgeous figure, but fitted gown with more coverage would’ve done the same.

Yvan Tufenkijan earrings completed her look.

If you’re having a case of deja vu, that might be because it bares a cheeky similarity to Rita Ora’s Donna Karan Atelier Vanity Fair gown.

    Gorgeous lady,bad dress.

    This is the worst dress i have ever seen in the entire year. Forgive them.

    Dear Lord, there is no justifying this, because ‘desperate and tacky attention-seeking’ is an understatement. Another example of a designer who knows that there will always be a woman dumb enough to wear such an atrocity of a dress.

    The cis privilege reeks in most of the comments on this post. For a trans-woman, especially a POC, the internal validation that she places in being able to showcase her body is extremely valid. Opine on the seaming, the construction and the mix of textiles – but even then, ask yourself this; with multiple magazine covers (in the face of transphobic comments on social media) in her bag, how many labels do you think are rushing to dress her?

    Okay, hear me out.

    I actually love this from the side, and I think it coulda been real special if the front velvet panel came up into a sweetheart neckline (& covered just a touch more of her sideboob), and then the rest of the sheer turtleneck bodice didn’t have that stitching pattern.

    I will also add that the sheer sleeve is excellently cut and fitted. Rarely do I encounter a sheer sleeve that I like.

      finally. a constructive comment. Thank you!

  6. Guest November 14, 2019 at 3:02 pm #

    Scary. There is nothing to save this look. The fabric are meh, the sheerness is vulgar, the accessories are bland. This is a no.

  7. Paola102 November 14, 2019 at 2:50 pm #

    Well, looks she got what she wanted: attention. I just think she could have gotten it in other ways. We were due for a barely there dress after Jamie Alexander in 2013 and Rita Ora in 2015….

  8. Guest November 14, 2019 at 12:41 pm #

    What a vulgar trashy cheap dress. WDOTY. Worse than anything a Kartrashennerian has ever worn.

    Rita’s dress looks almost demure compared to this and it didn’t look cheap.

  9. Sharon M November 14, 2019 at 11:13 am #

    Not only is it in poor taste, it is truly an ugly gown!

  10. Catarina_M November 14, 2019 at 9:44 am #

    Looks like someone forgot to take off the boob tape…

  11. Guest November 14, 2019 at 7:37 am #

    ewww..

  12. Guest November 14, 2019 at 6:50 am #

    It is only fair to post her look as we have a clear winner for WDOTY. If someone tops this, i will be very surprised. Emily Ratajkowski callled, she wants her dress back.

    • Guest November 14, 2019 at 10:28 am #

      It’s between this and Marion Cotillard’s Balmain Cannes outfit for top/bottom WDOTY spot

    • Guest November 14, 2019 at 12:40 pm #

      I see your point, but for me that was just bad taste. This.. This is an eye-hurting vulgar monstrosity.

    • Guest November 14, 2019 at 1:23 pm #

      I agree, but I think about how Laverne has always had awful style but with Marion it was such a fall from fashion grace and at Cannes of all places – I know it’s not a religious/sacred place or a memorial event- but still how did she decide to turn up in such an awful get-up after so many years ??
      Hopefully they can get joint WDOTY.

    • Guest November 14, 2019 at 2:22 pm #

      Lol, so so true.. Talking about fall from grace made me think of Charlize Theron lately. A true fashion baffler :/

    • Guest November 14, 2019 at 4:33 pm #

      I think Charlize is running for ‘I hope she gets her fashion mojo back in 2020/Gurl what happened?’ prize. Plus, her Givenchy couture look could easily end up in top 10 WDOTY list :/

  13. Guest November 14, 2019 at 1:58 am #

    Yikes

  14. Guest November 14, 2019 at 1:33 am #

    Tacky with a capital T

  15. JasLinds November 14, 2019 at 1:14 am #

    HARD NO

  16. Jess Mara November 14, 2019 at 12:15 am #

    It’s almost as if she has brought Coachella to the red carpet with the bikini tape!!! WTF. This is going straight to the top of my WDOTY

  17. Phee phee November 14, 2019 at 12:00 am #

    Oi. that is tacky. How sad and so silly.

  18. KseniaBradner November 13, 2019 at 11:56 pm #

    Tacky. What does she want from this? If I am a designer, I’m looking at this look and thinking, ‘No style. Not my brand’.

  19. Guest November 13, 2019 at 11:36 pm #

    Her body is amazing. I can’t say I blame her for showing it off but the dress is a WDOTY and an epic fail.

  20. P&P November 13, 2019 at 11:22 pm #

    Her body is out of this world and she is gorgeous, but this dress is awful.

  21. Guest November 13, 2019 at 10:54 pm #

    I like it from the front, there’s still some intrigue. The side shot ruins it.

  22. Guest November 13, 2019 at 10:32 pm #

    OMG. This is really terrible. At first glance, the sequin strips looked like electric tape that she put on herself!!!

  23. _Hannah_ November 13, 2019 at 10:18 pm #

    Well, for sure I won’t be able to “unsee” it. Awful.
    And in such a moment I always wonder – how someone contrives an idea to design such a garment? Did mr Akayya and Laverne Cox wanted to revive the legend of Lady Godiva, dressed and naked in the same time?

  24. Guest November 13, 2019 at 9:40 pm #

    U got new breasts, we get it, now put them away.

    Laverne loves attention a lot.

    Gurl u were on the cover of time magazine, u shouldn’t be doing this shìt.
    Even Kim Kardashian would never wear something like this today

  25. Guest November 13, 2019 at 9:34 pm #

    Oh Lord…

  26. Vu0n9 November 13, 2019 at 9:29 pm #

    Attention-thirsty! WDOTY period

    • Guest November 14, 2019 at 10:17 am #

      100% agree ,and thats an understatement of the year

  27. alvarospain November 13, 2019 at 9:10 pm #

    WDOTY

  28. Guest November 13, 2019 at 8:43 pm #

    With this approach why even bother with the “nipple straps” ? Or any dress whatsoever.

  29. Guest November 13, 2019 at 8:41 pm #

    WDOTY! Fugly outfit, too desperate and sooooo event inappropriate. She’s only a cameo or sth in this film.

  30. CharlotteLG November 13, 2019 at 8:41 pm #

    WDOTY of course.

  31. Guest November 13, 2019 at 8:34 pm #

    The only positive I could take from this is that tabloids/downmarket sites gave her the same ‘oh my gosh/phwoar’ as they would any almost fully exposed cis woman. Other than that, this is awful and on the express to the WDOTY list

  32. Guest November 13, 2019 at 8:30 pm #

    No.

  33. Guest November 13, 2019 at 8:29 pm #

    Hell no
