When it comes to red carpet style, Laverne Cox has kind of been killing it聽lately. From that revealing dress she rocked at the recent聽amfAR Inspiration Gala to debuting a set of blunt bangs like it was no big deal, the OITNB star has proven herself to be something of a modern-day style icon. So when we heard that Cox would be at this year鈥檚 BET Awards, it seemed like a given that she鈥檇 show up in something awesome, and she definitely didn鈥檛 let us down. Scroll on down to see the two fashion risks Laverne sported yesterday and how you can wear them too.

2015 BET Awards - Arrivals

1. A Plunging Neckline: While posing for pictures on the red carpet, Laverne sported a super sleek, navy blue jumpsuit. The long-sleeved number was fairly modest except for one unexpected element: that plunging neckline. We鈥檝e been seeing ultra-low necklines a lot recently, but Laverne鈥檚 took things to another level. To draw even more attention to the style, Laverne threw on a stunning body chain.

How to Avoid a Wardrobe Malfunction: If you鈥檙e up for this dramatic neckline but don鈥檛 want to accidently pull a Janet Jackson, there鈥檚 one super simple solution: fashion tape. To go braless with confidence, use the Breast Lift Tape from Hollywood Secrets ($9). This will not only make sure that your neckline stays in place, but will also keep your breasts looking just as perky as if you were rocking a push-up bra.

2. A Sky-High Slit: When Laverne and Gabrielle Union took to the stage to present the Best Actor Award, they both (purposefully) walked out in this custom-made Michael Costello dress.聽The stars joked that whoever lost a hip-hop trivia challenge had to change their dress for the afterparty. Gabrielle lost, which meant that the sky-high slit was to be sported by Laverne for the rest of the evening.

How to Avoid a Wardrobe Malfunction: This one is a little bit more challenging. You鈥檒l probably want the skirt of the dress to flow naturally, which means you don鈥檛 want to tape it to your leg. But you also don鈥檛 want a gust of wind to show the world your, uh鈥 you know.聽So what鈥檚 a girl to do? First things first, this is definitely not the dress to go commando in 鈥 you may not even want to wear a thong. Instead, we recommend wearing a pair of these Seamless Little Shortie Panties from Victoria鈥檚 Secret ($12). Should a strong breeze come your way they鈥檒l just look like super short shorts, plus the seamless style won鈥檛 leave you with an awkward panty line.
