Yahoo! Style recently spoke with the 31-year-old about transgender activism, her controversial story line on OITNB’s Season 3, and her new film Grandma. In addition to the interview, Yahoo’s style vertical produced a glamorous photo shoot for the online publication, capturing Cox in designer garbs like Alaïa, Dries Van Noten, Norma Kamali, Lanvin and more.
