Taraji P. Henson sure knows how to make an entrance. The “Empire” star livened up the 2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards with her stunning presence. She strutted down the blue carpet in a fun and flirty Giambattista Valli dress, which featured a long train that she worked to her advantage. Taraji styled it with a pair of “New April” platform heels from Jimmy Choo.

The 46-year-old actress and author wore a sleeveless dress from Giambattista Valli’s Spring 2017 couture collection, which featured lace embroidery and beaded embellishments. The dress also has a thin white waistband and draped detailing in addition to a short skirt that showed off her toned legs and a sweeping train.

Taraji kept her hair and makeup simple. Her hair was styled in a side-parted wavy bob, and her makeup was done in pastel hues.

The actress completed her look with a pair of “New April” platform sandals from Jimmy Choo. These rose-gold peep-toe shoes feature ankle straps and side-buckle closures, in addition to chunky heels and platform soles. Unfortunately, this particular style is currently unavailable, but you can purchase other versions of the “April” sandals at Jimmy Choo and Net-A-Porter.
