Many stars gathered together at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood on November 15 for the VH1 Big in 2015 with Entertainment Weekly Awards ceremony set to air on December 7 at 9PM ET/PT on VH1. In addition, the evening’s honorees will also be featured in EW’s Entertainers of the Year issue, which will be on sale on November 24.

Taraji P. Henson was among the A-list honorees at the said event for her work as Cookie Lyon on the Fox drama hit series “Empire“. Ensuring that all eyes were on her, the 45-year-old actress oozed sass and sex appeal in a fitted black Alexander Wang spring 2016 dress featuring an alluring lace-up detailing down the side, which showed some flesh.

She styled the flattering frock with a pair of dangling hoop earrings and mirror-embellished sandals for an edgy finish. Her gorgeous curled mane and neutral makeup with dark eye liner and mauve lipstick rounded out her look.

For her feet, Taraji wore a pair of Alaia sandals—the same heels spotted on her at a live-streaming panel event for Empire last May. Made of laser-cut suede, these sandals feature circular mirror embellishments, open toes, double buckled ankle straps, 0.5 inch platforms, and 4.5 inch heels.
