Taraji P. Henson In David Koma – Black Girls Rock! 2017

Rocking a new lease on style, ‘Empire’ star Taraji P. Henson hosted this year’s Black Girls Rock! 2017 awards show and celebration held on Saturday (August 4) in Newark, New Jersey.

She started off the red carpet on the right foot—or should we say leg—by strapping into a David Koma Fall 2017 design that fused feminine seduction with tougher edge.

I love the vixen-warrior mentality of this dress coupled with the designers’ signature sexy, body-con allure. Plus, it was a great match to her equally spirited new hairstyle.

Even though she didn’t choose the girls or the gams and flaunted both, she rocked the heck out of this look.

Taraji P. Henson In Emilio Pucci – 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards

Taraji P. Henson was the winner of Best Fight Against the System for ‘Hidden Figures’ at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, hosted on Sunday (May 7) in LA.

Her golden popcorn trophy had nothing on her Emilio Pucci Fall 2017 dress, which was emanating with a strong sense of space-age glam. And, her blunt platinum bob only contributed to the futuristic effect.

That said, perhaps there is such a thing as too much gold—even in outer space—as the all-over glitter in combination with the high turtleneck didn’t exactly flatter Taraji’s figure.

The open back detail did help, but not enough to save the front of the dress.

Graziela Gems rings completed the metallic-overload look.

Taraji P. Henson In Alberta Ferretti – 2017 Oscars

Taraji P. Henson made a striking turn down the 2017 Oscars on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood, California.

Fierce took on new meaning with her midnight-sapphire Alberta Ferretti gown iced with a Nirav Modi bib necklace and a Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch.

I love how the dark dress—seemingly black at first glance—had additional dimension by virtue of its hue.

From the perfect, off-the-shoulder plunge neckline to the just-high-enough slit, not to mention her voluminous, wavy bob and seductive smoky-navy eye, here we had another look that exuded a modern call to old Hollywood glam.

Head-turning and magnetic, this entrance saw Taraji at her gorgeous best.

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?

Taraji P. Henson In Marc Jacobs – 2017 Grammy Awards

Taraji P. Henson attended the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 12).

The actress wore a lavender Marc Jacobs mini dress with Jimmy Choo ‘Minny’ sandals.

This is seriously such a fun dress! The space motif, the color–which is quite unexpected for the red carpet–the intricate shoulder detailing: I can imagine Taraji falling in love with it the minute she saw it.

What I cannot imagine is what her stylist was thinking letting her wear it when it didn’t fit perfectly! The puckering from the sizing issues is distracting, and Taraji is way too fierce a lady for such nonsense.

I also adore her sleeked back bob and simple makeup, and they are the perfect beauty companions to this playful look.

2017 NAACP Image Awards Red Carpet Roundup

More actresses were also seen at the 2017 NAACP Image Awards on Saturday (February 11) in Pasadena, California.

Tracee Ellis Ross: Putting the elongating power of vertical lines to her advantage, the actress wore an Ulyana Sergeenko halter gown accessorized with a touch of quirkiness in her gigantic S-curve earrings.

Serayah: Speaking of gigantic earrings, Serayah’s embellished crosses were even larger. They certainly brought her unique personality to this red Dolce & Gabbana lace-accented gown.
