In Taylor Swift's new "You Need to Calm Down" music video, there's not just an excess of celebrity cameos and Easter eggs, but there’s hair in all shapes, colors, and sizes. From Swift's rainbow waves to Katy Perry's atomic orange updo, it's hard to know where to look—or what to moodboard—first. But amidst all the done-up styles in the saccharine-sweet video, it's Laverne Cox's voluminous sun-kissed lengths that win out as she holds court in front of a bubblegum pink trailer and green lawn spangled with flamingo garden stakes.
Sharing a behind-the-scenes clip hashtagged #TransIsBeautiful, the actress and LGBTQ activist channels her inner Brigitte Bardot with help from hairstylist César Ramirêz, her platinum mane styled into a sultry, laissez-faire bouffant that's teased at the crown with a cascade of soft, waist-grazing waves. Playing up the glamour of her bombshell hair in a sequin halter gown with a plunging neckline, Cox's natural glow looks extra luminous accented by frosted metallic lids, rosy cheeks, and slick of shimmering pink lip gloss. "Thanks Taylor for having me, I'm trying to calm down," joked Cox on Instagram. But let's be real, the boundary-breaking star's beauty is best unbridled.
