Trending Hollywood actress and star actress of 'Empire', Teraji P Hanson went all Diana Ross for her first Allure cover shoot and we now know how she pulled it off.

Here's the scoop on the inspiration behind her look and how to DIY it.

Henson's first Allure cover shoot took place at Gilded Lily, a nightclub in New York City.

The hair inspiration for the shoot was disco-era Diana Ross, in 1974.

There wasn't enough time to let Henson's hair air-dry, so hairstylist Garren used a wig.

To get a similar look, apply a rich conditioner to wet hair, rinse well, and let it air-dry.

Gently rake through the hair with a wide-tooth comb to separate the curls.

Makeup artist Hung Vanngo, touched up Henson's eye shadow, blending a reddish-purple cream blush on her cheeks with his fingers.

To create her rust-colored smoky eyes, he dabbed on champagne and copper cream shadows, penciled chocolate-brown liner around her eyes, and tapped on a sheer, nude lipstick.
