Beyonce Knowles has chosen Laverne Cox as the face of her Athleisure Ivy Park AW 2017 fashion campaign. The 46-year-old female impersonator announced his dream job on Wednesday.
“To be honest, it doesn’t feel real,” Cox told PeopleStyle. “It feels like some weird fantasy that I’ve had since Destiny’s Child. It feels amazing that I get to be a part of this brand that has already inspired me and be working with a woman who has especially been a huge inspiration to me and so many folks around the world.”
Clips of Cox modeling for the campaign were recently uploaded on the official Ivy Park website. Karen McDonald, Souffrant Ralph, and Grace Bol are also featured in the campaign.
Although Cox didn’t have the opportunity to meet Beyoncé during the shoot (she was about to give birth to the twins), she still had nothing but praise for Queen Bey. “Beyoncé is someone who has pushed herself beyond what even she thought she could do,” said Cox. “It’s a sense of becoming a superwoman, and really pushing yourself beyond all measure.”
