Bold beauty! Laverne Cox took it all off in a new issue of Allure Magazine, and she isn't afraid to show off her curves: "Going through life you try to cover and hide, but it doesn't really work," Cox told the magazine.

Though she was timid to do the shoot, the proud transgender woman shared her decision to participate. "I said no initially, thought about it, and said no again," she said." "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 her body might be inspiring for some folks. There's a beauty in the things we think are imperfect. It sounds very cliché, but its true."

Sleepy Hollow star Nicole Beharie admits that getting older prompted her to shed her clothing in celebration: "I just turned 30, and I was really nervous about posing…But I wanted to celebrate and accept my body in an artistic way."
