Photographer Sophy Holland was personally selected by Laverne Cox to document her road to the Met Gala. This year’s exhibition theme, Camp: Notes on Fashion, celebrates the lavish and often over the top designs. Laverne attended as Anna Wintour’s guest in a custom Christian Siriano gown, complete with a ruffled train, a high shoulder, and turquoise hair.
Being that this was Laverne’s first time attending the gala Sophy found it important to document Laverne from her fittings to hours before she made her entrance on the pink carpet. The resulting images showcase Laverne’s historic moment in the best possible light. Bravo Sophy!
