The trans icon was included in the annual 'World's Most Beautiful' issue 

It's hard to remember a time before Laverne Cox, but it's actually been less than two years since she first wowed audiences the world over with her portrayal of Sophia in Orange Is the New Black. In that time, she's risen to icon status, raising awareness and understanding of transgender issues with poise and eloquence, and dazzling us with her beauty and talent. It was just over a year ago that she became the first trans women to grace the cover of a mainstream publication with TIME's 'The Transgender Tipping Point,' and now she's been named one of the 'World's Most Beautiful Women' by People.

The 'World's Most Beautiful' issue is an annual affair for People. This year's upcoming May issue features Sandra Bullock on the cover as the world's most beautiful woman, and has this to say about Cox:

"The actress has left a big impression on Hollywood (and America) in a very short amount of time. Cox's skillful performance as Sophia on Orange Is the New Black and her work advocating for transgender women make her one of our boldest beauties yet."
