TV SUMMER TOUR ’14 Taraji’s On Screen & Off Screen Style!By Entertainment Gal | July 31, 2014 | Style
Taraji P. Henson is returning to TV this fall in Lee Daniels‘ glitzy new drama Empire. She plays Cookie Lyon, ex-wife of Lucious Lyon (played by her Hustle & Flow co-star Terrence Howard). Cookie just spent 17 years in jail on a drug charge – money she used to fund her ex’s then-fledgling business. Now that she’s back, Cookie’s ready to get what’s hers … and she’s doing it in a fierce wardrobe!
“I love everything that they put on Cookie,” Taraji shared with us at the FOX TV press party earlier this month. “Cookie wears a lot of prints and that’s what I like about her. She’s very feisty. She comes out of jail like a caged animal.”
Off the set, Taraji goes gaga for a great pair of shoes.
“I just bought these Christian Louboutin thong gladiator sandals and got them in both colors, black leather and beige suede,” she shared. “I love those shoes with anything — shorts, sundress, maxi-dress. They just go with everything.
And now that they’re on sale, they go with our bank accounts! Check them out at Barneys.com.
