Taraji P. Henson attended the 2016 Fox TCA All-Star party on Monday to celebrate the upcoming third season of her hit series “Empire.”
The 45-year-old actress traded her typically sultry red carpet style for a flirty and feminine look. She selected an Emanuel Ungaro Resort 2017 dress featuring floral prints, glittery neck embellishments and structured shoulders.
While the frock looked modest in the front, the open back design added just enough sexiness. It also had a thigh-grazing hemline and a waist-cinching belt that helped accentuate her curves.

Taraji kept the rest of the look pretty simple, accessorizing with only a pair of diamond stud earrings.
She styled her short dark locks with a braided headband, and completed the look with shimmering eyeshadow and red lipstick.

A pair of black patent sandals, called “Nicole,” by Alexa Wagner rounded out Taraji’s ensemble. They simply have adjustable ankle straps, open toes and about four-inch heels.
