Leave it to Taraji P. Henson to work a red carpet. The “Hidden Figures” star joined Brie Larson in strutting her stuff in an all-velvet ensemble on the red carpet of the 2017 Academy Awards.
Taraji wowed the crowd and paparazzi alike as she showed off her gorgeous toned physique in a skin-tight velvet dress at the 2017 Academy Awards. The actress came to support her “Hidden Figures” team, which garnered nominations for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress and Best Writing Adapted Screenplay.
Taraji P. Henson at the 89th annual Academy Awards held at the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles on February 26, 2017.

Taraji showed off a whole lot of cleavage in her off-shoulder velvet dress by Alberta Ferretti. The dress also featured a thigh-high slit, which completed the ’50s red carpet bombshell look.
The actress went minimal on the dress but all-out on the bling. Taraji accessorized her look with some royalty-worthy diamonds from Nirav Modi, as well as a clutch and velvet “Minny” sandals from Jimmy Choo.

Taraji had a quick chat with Ryan Seacrest about her selection process for “Hidden Figures.” The actress said it only took 10 pages of script reading before she realized that she had something special in her hands. The film was such a passion project for Taraji, in fact, that the actress said she even didn’t care how much she was getting paid.
The single mom also said that, growing up, she was fed with the mindset that math and science were for only for boys. Taraji claims that she felt “robbed of a dream.”
