Laverne Cox is ready for almost anything. “I’m not carrying condoms at the moment,” admits the star of Fox’s The Rocky Horror Picture Show remake (October 20, 8 p.m.). “But that has happened to me in the past. It’s not embarrassing — it’s responsible!” The single Alabama native spills her Zac Posen tote and shares her nonnegotiables with Us Weekly.
“I have Warm Vanilla Sugar Fine Fragrance Mist by Bath & Body Works. I’ll use a little to smell fresh — especially if I’m going to meet a guy.”
“I try to keep sugar-free cinnamon Altoids. Cinnamon is hard to find in L.A., so I bought a bunch in New York. My corner deli stocks me up.”
“When I saw Gone With the Wind in third grade and Scarlett O’Hara was fanning herself, it just felt so glamorous. So I try to keep a fan with me. It’s black with gold sequins.”
“Lord, this purse needs to be cleaned out! I have so much makeup. I don’t wear it all the time, I just have it. I love this Maybelline highlighter called Facestudio Master Hi-Light. I love a shimmer on the cheek.”
Sweet and Spicy
“I’m obsessed with this cilantro jalapeño hummus from Trader Joe’s that my manager got me. You dip some apples in that and it will change your life!”
