Taraji P. Henson In Giambattista Valli Couture – 2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Taraji P. Henson had a light new outlook at the 2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 25) in Santa Monica, California.

Using the more casual event as an opportunity to give her sultry diva side a rest in exchange for a more frivolously darling mood, she wore a Giambattista Valli Spring 2017 Couture high-low frock.

The floral and lace design was imbued with girly femininity, so that led me to question the heels. The rose-gold tone was on point, but the chunky Jimmy Choo ‘New April’ platforms, not so much.

I wouldn’t have immediately pegged this look for Taraji, as I would have more closely placed it for someone the likes of Kiernan Shipka. But I did appreciate her stepping outside the box with a fresh perspective that was likewise echoed in her pastel makeup and wavy bob.

What do you make of it?

    I like the dress on her. The shoes are a miss though.

    Any other day I would have called it off. But can’t argue this time, given the mood of the awards and Taraji clearly enjoying her twee moment.

    Totally not working. This feels all wrong for her. This WOULD be way better for Kiernan Shipka.

    No, the girly dress is completely wrong for her, and the chunky shoes are distracting.

    This would have been so much better had it been about 5 inches longer, it is just *way* too short. I feel like her style is all over the place

    This dress is not for her. Also, what’s going on with the bad shoes? Is it an epidemic? lol
