Part of its annual nude portfolio, Allure Magazine tapped five actresses to strip off to their birthday suits for an all naked series photographed by Norman Jean Roy. The images feature Laverne Cox from ‘Orange is the New Black’, Jordana Brewster from ‘Furious 7’, Katheryn Winnick from ‘Vikings’, Nicole Baheri from ‘Sleepy Hollow’ and Sandrine Holt from ‘Terminator Genisys’.
About going nude, Laverne says, “I said no [to posing nude] initially, thought about it, and said no again,” she says. “But I’m a black transgender woman. I felt this could be really powerful for the communities that I represent. Black women are not often told that we’re beautiful unless we align with certain standards. Trans women certainly are not told we’re beautiful. Seeing a black transgender woman embracing and loving everything about herself might be inspiring to some other folks.”
