Everyone loves Orange Is the New Black, right? It's an empowering show full of powerful women who remind us that people come from different backgrounds, and that's OK.

It didn't take Laverne Cox long during her red carpet interview with Ryan Seacrest to rave about the show, everything it stands for and what it means for other young, aspiring actors who think they don't fit in.

"I’m a black transgender woman from a working class family... and I’m here at the party," she said. The show may be about prison life, a risqué setting to most, but that doesn't mean it isn't full of positive lessons and inspiration for women everywhere — especially with role models like Cox behind it.

And let's be honest. The cast also looked amazing, which further proves that beauty is just as diverse as we are as people.
