Steal Laverne Cox's Shimmering Gold Lace Marchesa Dress

Celebrity, Wedding Dresses

While we loved Laverne Cox's white Marc Bouwer Emmy Awards look, the Orange Is the New Black star wore an equally amazing gown to the after party: a gold-tinged lace stunner with an illusion neckline from bridal powerhouse Marchesa. The gilded gown is both extremely elegant and glamorous, perfect for the girl looking to make a major statement while still remaining inherently bridal. The shimmering, metallic lace would make any bride-to-be feel like an A-lister, and the illusion neckline ties in one of the most beloved modern trends.

Here's how to get a gown similar to Cox's custom Marchesa.
