The actress’ ensemble was complete with sleek black pants, as well as a fan-shaped leather handbag and chunky gold hoop earrings.

“My first #ParisHauteCouture #FashionWeek @schiaparelli,” Cox captioned the video to much fanfare. “#TransIsBeautiful.”

The pair gained a sultry edge with bold stiletto heels, totaling at least 4 inches in height. Cox’s sandals gave her look a dynamic edge, adding to her dramatic nature and cementing her couture debut as an undeniable success.
