Laverne Cox might just be one of our favorite people in showbiz today. Not only is she a talented actor, but she’s also a trans-activist, and isn’t afraid to speak her mind on the issues that she deems important.

Currently, Laverne is busy prepping for her new CBS show, Doubt, which sees her play an Ivy-League educated lawyer along side Katherine Heigl. The role marks the first transgender actor to play a transgender lead role on network television, something that Laverne should be super proud of! We can’t wait for the show to air.

Another thing we love Laverne for is her ability to always look completely and utterly glamorous. And at the Teen Choice Awards last night, the 32-year-old actor proved again that she knows her way around a gorgeous outfit. In fact, we think she looked like an actual superhero.

Laverne rocked a black catsuit and she looked AMAZING.

Don’t you think that Laverne looks like she could be Catwoman? In fact, don’t you think that if they do a new Catwoman film that Laverne should PLAY Catwoman? Yes, we do.

We really loving the bling that Laverne is rocking, too. Again, it reminds us of early ’00s fashion and that’s definitely something we can get on board with.

On Instagram, Laverne gave a little behind-the-scenes peek into how her hair was done.

While on the red carpet, she also stopped and took selfies with fans.

She even changed up her look to present at the awards, changing into a black leotard, while keeping her statement bejewelled belt on.

Later this year, Laverne will star in FOX’s remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which is scheduled to air on Halloween. We can’t wait!
