Taraji P. Henson In Cushnie et Ochs – Lip Sync Battle LIVE: A Michael Jackson Celebration

I was relieved to see Taraji P. Henson back on track for the Lip Sync Battle Live: A Michael Jackson celebration on Thursday (January 18) in Hollywood, California, following her previous disastrous outing.

On this occasion sexy elegance with a slight edge was her red carpet M.O. in Cushnie et Ochs.

The leather track pants might initially give this look a sporty feel, but it’s the sheer Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2018 embellished top which ensures a sultry, opulent florish.

Taraji P. Henson In Alexander Wang – Hennessy VSOP Privilege’s Dinner

Taraji P. Henson attended the Hennessy VSOP Privilege’s dinner hosted in her honour to celebrate ‘Proud Mary’ at Zuma on Monday (January 8) in New York City.

I have to say I’m extremely baffled by this Alexander Wang Spring 2018 look, as it doesn’t suit or fit her red carpet M.O. by any description.

If I had to I would save the top half, but the bottom doesn’t work.

Kudos to her for going down the androgynous route and trying something different, but this is a hard, fast, flat no from me.

I don’t think even Tilda Swinton could sell this look.

Taraji P. Henson In Preen – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Taraji P. Henson kick started her promo tour for ‘Proud Mary’ with a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ on Monday (January 8).

The actress wore a Preen By Thornton Bregazzi’s black dress with a figure-flattering, sculptural construction comprised of ruched detailing and an asymmetric hem which gives it a off-kilter twist.

I know many of you don’t understand boots with anything sleeveless, but in this case I love how they amp up the sex appeal of the look.

Taraji P. Henson In Schiaparelli Couture – Billboard Women In Music 2017

Taraji P. Henson joined a host of stars including Elle Fanning and Selena Gomez for the Billboard Women In Music event on Thursday (November 30) in Hollywood, California.

The ‘Empire’ actress wore a Schiaparelli Fall 2017 Couture glorious green, mustard and blue silk chiffon smocked gown cinched with an embroidered midnight blue belt.

I adore the seasonal hues, the touch of glamour from the belt, the sheer sensuality and the beautiful teased curls, but the nipple covers were very jarring, as they only served to highlight rather than conceal.


‘Empire’ & ‘Star’ Celebrate FOX’s New Wednesday

A trio of sultry stars were at the ‘Empire’ and ‘Star’ Celebrate FOX’s New Wednesday event on Saturday (September 23) in New York City.

Taraji P. Henson: The ‘Empire’ actress was smoldering, as she combined sheer sexiness with full-on sparkle in a Rasario skirt.

Demi Moore: Demi’s version of sultry appeal had her looking to lace and velvet in this Marchesa fit-and-flare dress styled with Eva Fehren jewels. I found myself wondering what it would look like without the bow at the neck, though, for a sleeker variation on sophistication.

Rumer Willis: Joining mom Demi at the event, Rumer was on-trend in her relaxed, slightly oversized Styland and Ruben Singer monochromatic suiting. The look was styled wih Ananbela Chan brooch, Djula hoops and a Pasquale Bruni diamond ring .

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.
