Laverne Cox Emmys 2015: 'Orange is the New Black' Star Stuns In Custom Calvin Klein

Laverne is a total pro on the red carpet.

There's no doubt that one of the biggest television stars of the year is the influential and flawless Laverne Cox. And note to Ryan Seacrest — #askhermore, but don't forget to ask the actress who she is wearing.

In her red carpet interview with E's Ryan Seacrest, who almost forgot to ask the 31-year-old actress about her fashion for the evening, Cox made sure the vital red carpet question was answered: "I need to tell you who I'm wearing." Amazing.

Cox, who was named one of Time's 100 Most Influential People of 2015, wore a custom Calvin Klein Collection column gown with back cut outs and a back slit. The sultry form-fitting teal dress, with a low cut neckline, was accessorized with Fred Leighton jewels and Stuart Weitzman sunshine yellow heels.

As for her beauty look, Laverne kept things simple with a nude lip, black eyeliner and a bronzed cheek. Her long, blond hair fell in simple curls.

Fingers crossed for Cox and her co-stars on "Orange Is the New Black," which is nominated for Outstanding Drama Series.
