How Laverne Cox Gets Ready For The Emmys

While some stars will be sipping mimosas and rushing around to make sure that everything is perfect for their big night, Laverne Cox's pre-Emmy Awards routine is actually pretty normal. According to Us Weekly, the Orange Is The New Black star is planning to prep for the ceremony by... getting some rest and a eating good breakfast? Considering that award show preparations probably take all day, I can't blame her for wanting to keep it simple the night before the Emmys.

If planning for a typical high-school prom prep took me weeks, then I can only imagine what prepping for a major awards show is like. Cox is no stranger to the red carpet, and from last year's gorgeous Emmys look, it's clear that she knows a thing or two about getting ready for high-profile events..

“My biggest prep is to get a good night's sleep and a good breakfast,” Cox tells Us Weekly. “I will probably have egg whites with tomato and mushrooms — and some bacon on the side.”

That sounds absolutely delicious to me! According to the publication, Cox already found her dress six weeks ago, so there won't be any stress on that front leading up to the big day. She is leaving her hair style a bit more spur-of-the-moment, however, telling Us Weekly that she wants her stylists to be inspired by the dress.

Although she hasn't been nominated for any awards this year, the star was nominated for an Emmy in 2014, which made her the first transgender nominee in history. Cox looked like a goddess at last year's Emmys, proving that she must be doing something right when it comes to her pre-show routine. Here's a look back at her outfit.

The star arrived for the show in an all-white gown that was absolutely gorgeous. With a thin strap connecting the top of the plunging neckline, this dress had tons of personality.

The back of the dress looked almost like angel wings, giving the gown a light and airy feel. The twisted up 'do also made for an effortless effect.

Completing the red-carpet look with a dark eye and light colored lip, I'm willing to say that this was her best awards ensemble yet.


Just look at how gorgeous the gown looks flowing down the red carpet.

I can't wait to see what she wears at this year's Emmys!
