Taraji P. Henson In Alexander Wang – 2015 Emmy Awards

Taraji P. Henson In Alexander Wang - 2015 Emmy Awards

Taraji P. Henson attended the 2015 Emmy Awards on Sunday night (September 20) at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Empire’ actress wore a custom Alexander Wang black gown with enticingly edgy chain-link straps accessorized with the designer’s custom ‘Chastity’ minaudière and ‘Antonia’ sandals.

While this look is right in line with the sultrier fashion mood she has been rocking of late, I was pleasantly surprised to see it fall on the right side of sexiness—sans major hip-exposing cutouts and all-out, see-through fabrics.

Fortunately, her bangs were likewise MIA. With this look, she is stepping more closely back to her once-regal red-carpet form.

    Love the chain detail. Hate the cutout. its only okay. Not bad but not terrific.

    This is better than her usual lately but the makeup look is bad.

    I really like this. It seems perfect for her.

    Quite unexpected. I appreciate it for that.

    This is definitely better than what we’ve seen from her lately.

    I love this but perhaps for some other event? Black doesn’t seem right for the Emmys and the dress is kinda underwhelming. She still looks great though.

    why is she bending in all the pictures?

    I was totally disappointed in this look. she is one of two black actresses nominated for best actress in a leading role drama (the biggest category of the night). I expected more.

    The only problem with me is the hair. It just doesn’t work with the dress. She could’ve done so much better.

    Not a look I would have picked for her but really nice. Her hair is a great choice for an a. wang dress.

    Don’t like the sheer, don’t like the cut out, and the chains are odd for the Emmys. I also can never get passed her evil eyebrows. There is no excuse for bad brows in Hollywood.

    I love this. a best dressed contender for me.

    Boring, don’t like the chains.

    I expected worse when I heard she’d wear A. Wang. lol I mean, she actually looks okay, although this still isn’t really my cup of tea.

  14. Christine September 21, 2015 at 12:06 am #

    I like this!

  15. Yeliz September 21, 2015 at 12:05 am #

    Well, I would’ve preferred the skirt lined, but she looks great nonetheless.

    I think she looks amazing this! Flowy and sophisticated and I adore the detail with the chain straps and her angled bob works perfectly
