Taraji P. Henson In Giambattista Valli – 2018 Emmy Awards

Taraji P. Henson In Giambattista Valli - 2018 Emmy Awards

Taraji P. Henson swept onto the red carpet of the 2018 Emmy Awards on Monday (September 17) in LA.

The actress isn’t afraid to push the boundaries a bit, but usually it’s in the direction of traditionally sexy looks.

So, I’m sure I wasn’t the only one a bit surprised at this Giambattista Valli Fall 2018 exaggerated high-low creation that was quite whimsically girlish in form with its teeny florals and baby-doll silhouette.

That said, I’m trying to imagine the dress with another hairstyle, as this one felt a bit contrived — and even a bit ageing — with the look. Or, maybe it’s just one too many ruffles and curls combined.

What say you?

    l think it is beautiful, elegant, sexy and different. I like her choice of shoes which makes the whole emsamble more sexier. And that hairstyle It adds to the floral details of the dress, framing her high cheekbones and that chin of her.Oh!And you notice her makeup. Beautiful eyes!!!! Just beaauuutiiiiful!!!

    She doesn’t look good in this picture but I thought she looked nice on the telecast while she was on the stage

    I would love to see this dress on Eliza Scanlen.

    Yeah, this is a no! and I don’t even want to think about why!

    This is extremely awful.

    I think this is just a bad picture because on the telecast the dress looked much better! Also I’m happy that Taraji tried something different this time.

    No, just no. The dress was definitely wearing her.

    I don’t think this dress would look good on anyone. She tried but it was pointless.

    She’s doing a lot to try to sell this, but the gown really doesn’t work for me.

    I’m imagining the dress on someone like Yara or one of her peers. I don’t think Giambattista Valli is the best fit for her in general, Ralph & Russo or Atelier Versace would be just two better houses for her.

    I find this fun. It’s a swerve in a different direction but I like that it’s not another satin, block colour, fitted, strapless whatever.

  13. Jas September 18, 2018 at 7:20 am #

    This is so awful and unflattering.

  14. Real Nat39 September 18, 2018 at 4:16 am #

    It’s not her dress, needed a younger girl.

  15. Santiago September 18, 2018 at 3:41 am #

    That dress should have stayed at the runway.

    Terrible.

  17. Laura September 18, 2018 at 3:26 am #

    Her stylist should be fired for this. At the Emmys? For shame.

      +1 — just awful.
