Taraji P. Henson In Roberto Cavalli – ‘Acrimony’ New York Premiere

Taraji P. Henson turned up the drama at the ‘Acrimony’ New York premiere on Tuesday (March 27).

Pyjama dressing remains popular, but the ‘Empire’ actress went for a bathrobe influence in Roberto Cavalli.

Clearly this is not the average bathrobe look with the piece being accented with shimmering trim and buttons.

Kimberly McDonald Fine Jewelry and Louboutin sandals added to the louche sensuality without making it look costumey.

Rita Ora had a similar bathrobe moment at the 2017 MTV EMAs. Taraji didn’t go quite as far as she didn’t wear a head towel, but I think she mastered the tricky style is the most glamorous of fashions.

Do you agree?

Taraji P. Henson In Vera Wang – 2018 Oscars

Taraji P. Henson turned plenty of heads at the 2018 Oscars on Sunday (March 4) in Hollywood.

She celebrated all of her assets in a custom Vera Wang chiffon gown that certainly turned up the heat.

From afar, I like the direction of the seductive romance of this look.

However, I feel as if the super-see-through component of the top area coupled with the dangerously high slit may have taken it a few steps too far into eyebrow-raising territory.

A dark plum lip coupled with Jimmy Choo ‘Minny’ sandals completed the effect.

Taraji P. Henson In David Koma – 2018 amfAR Gala New York

Taraji P. Henson was back to her very best for the 2018 amfAR Gala New York on Wednesday (February 7).

I was purring with delight to see her ode to high glamour in David Koma; as her Spring 2018 gown is an indulgent statement that demands the spotlight.

Who needs jewels when you’re already sparkling from head-to-toe?

One for her hall of fame.

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.
