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.

    I don’t like the hair but she’s one of my best dressed of the night. Everything is perfect.

    She looks fantastic. The fit is perfect and I am so glad she went for dark and sensuous. That necklace is beautiful and she was one of the best of the night for me.

    This is probably my best dressed of the evening. She totally owned the look, looked incredibly comfortable and enchanting, I love the color, I love that it’s velvet and I love the silhouette – basically I am in love with this look and this woman, she slayed the red carpet.

      Second that! Queen of the night, fierce lady and fierce styling! She looks a m a z i n g!

    I’m surprised people are so enthusiastic about this look. While I do appreciate the midnight blue hue of this dress, the bodice is WAY too tight (how are you guys overlooking her suffocating twins?) and the hair too mother-of-the-bride.

    I do wish she would tone down on her eyebrows, they’re always too overly arched for me.

      Completely agree. I’m surprised at the love this look is getting. She’s done better many times before.

    She looks fabulous! I love this.

    How can you do better than this? Taraji is just one of the best of the night and maybe her best look to date.

    Beautiful dress and necklace.

    Va va voom–this is about as bombshell as you get. Love the luxe velvet! And the diamonds.

    This dress was a gorgeous shade of deep royal blue and it was stunning on her. The jewels elevated this look and I thought she looked outstanding. Just stunning!

    Fantastic actress but she looks dated and over-the-top in a Helena Bohem Carter type of way. I blame the crazy unkempt hair and breasts pushed all the way to her chin.

    I suppose it doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but this is a personal best for Taraji. Absolutely stunning!

  13. Pheephee February 27, 2017 at 01:03 #

    One of her personal best, I believe. Really good overall look for her. She should stick to these classier kind of dresses….its still got her sexy thing but adds some elegance to it.

  14. AnderBoBo February 27, 2017 at 01:01 #

    This is absolute perfection!!! She really hit it out of the park with this, sultry, seductive, sexy and elegant all at once, obsessed!!

    Great look!

  16. Christine February 27, 2017 at 00:58 #

    Her best look to date. The dress fits her like a DREAM.
