    She looks gorgeous I love it! My friend Deja Smith did the makeup on this shoot & is the usual MA for Laverne this so cool. I love all of the beautiful things said about the legendary Leontyne Price.

    love that someone like Cox pays tribute to Leontyne Price, hopefully this will exposes the knowledge of this great artist to a public usually far from opera.

      Plus, separated at birth, right. She has Lee’s late seventies Scavullo-look down perfectly!
