Celebrities sharing no-makeup selfies — from Tamera Mowry to Paris Jackson — has been an amazing thing for us all to witness. Let us not forget, Alicia Keys reignited the #NoMakeup movement and inspired many others to show off their own natural beauty. Now, Orange Is the New Black star and LGBT activist Laverne Cox is joining the wave too, recently sharing a photo without her usual glam.
Cox posted a selfie on Instagram of herself wearing no makeup, and as the caption mentions, no wig. She did credit Emmy-nominated hairstylist Kendra Garvey for her “cute” flat-ironed straight hair. Cox’s skin looked absolutely flawless, and her fans were obsessed with her au naturel look as well.

“I literally love you,” one person noted underneath the 45-year-old’s photo. “You represent WOMEN! ALL women, because GIRL, your beauty comes from the inside and shines out! My boyfriend and I just love your posts.” Another simply stated, “Your skin is flawless doll,” and one supporter shared, “You do not need a lot of makeup, your skin is gorgeous. You don’t NEED any makeup but you know what I mean. I love your natural beauty.”
While many others expressed the same feelings for Cox’s flawless no-makeup, no-wig moment on the ‘gram, it’s hard not to admit that she is just as beautiful when she is all made up.
Final verdict: Laverne Cox slays — with or without makeup. Just take a look for yourself at all the fierceness below.

My favorite #bellhooks quote from her book Yearning Language is also a place of struggle. I was just a girl coming slowly into womanhood when I read Adrienne Rich's words. 'This is the oppressor's language yet I need it to talk to you.' ..Language is also a place of struggle… We are wedded to language, have our being in words. Language is also a place of struggle. Dare I speak to oppressed and oppressor in the same voice. Dare I speak to you in a language that will move beyond the boundaries of domination, a language that will not bind you, fence you in or hold you. Language is also a place of struggle. The oppressed struggle in language to recover ourselves, to reconcile, to reunite to renew. Our words are not without meaning. They are an action, a resistance. Language is also a place of struggle.
