She’s Still Got It: Taraji P. Henson Looks Fierce in Head-to-Toe Alexander Wang at 2015 Emmy Awards

Since she played Cookie Lyon on the Fox drama series Empire, it seems like Taraji P. Henson is slowly becoming her character in real life — style-wise, that is! She’s been spotted channeling her inner Cookie in seriously fierce but sophisticated ensembles at various red carpet events.

At the 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, Taraji, 45, proved that she still hasn’t lost her sex appeal as she arrived at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles wearing head-to-toe Alexander Wang. She was sexy and edgy at the same time in a custom black gown, which flattered her figure. It features chain straps, a see-through floor-length skirt that showcased her shapely legs, and a cutout at the midriff. She accessorized with silver jewelry and a custom Alexander Wang purse and completed the ensemble with a pair of black sandals from the same brand. Also, she traded her Bettie Page hairstyle for a sleek center-parted bob, which looked a lot classier. Purple eye shadow with thicker and longer eyelashes and shimmering lipstick were the finishing touches to her look.

Taraji was up for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series but lost to Viola Davis for her role in How to Get Away with Murder, making her the first African-American woman to win the trophy in the said category. Nevertheless, Taraji nailed it in the fashion department.

Completing her Alexander Wang ensemble was a pair of “Antonia” sandals featuring padded straps, adjustable ankle straps, open toes, and about 4 inch heels.

You can get them in different versions at Barneys and Shopbop.
