It seems most of Hollywood will be celebrating the new year in swimsuits (or ski boots!). Laverne Cox got in on the holiday selfie Instagram action, sharing a snap of her racy swim look on Instagram Tuesday.

“This girl desperately needs a vacation. Earlier before I hit the pool. #TransIsBeautiful,” the Orange Is the New Black star captioned the mirror selfie above, in which she shows off her fit figure in a black cutout onepiece.

Cox isn’t afraid to strip down on Instagram. Earlier this year, she posted a makeup-free snapshot (wearing an underboob-baring swimsuit), telling her fans, “Always good to have days with no makeup to let my skin breath.”

When it comes to her red carpet style MO, however, Cox loves to go all out glam and knows the importance of wearing gowns that flatter her body.

“I have a fashion philosophy: ‘FFPS.’ Fit, Fabric, Proportion, Silhouette. So all of those things are really important — color too — but FFPS is sort of my philosophy and I go that way,” she told PEOPLE last year after her first Emmys red carpet.
