We have got our eyes and ears glued on Taraji P. Henson!  After the fabulous success of hip hop series Empire, its safe to say that Taraji is one to watch.

It’s no news that Taraji  stunned on the red carpet at the recent 2015 Emmy Awards in a sheer black number. The star nominated for her role as Cookie Lyon in FOX’s Empire, and has come a long way from her Baby Boy days.  Following her debut in 2005 flick Hustle & Flow alongside current empire co-star Terrence Howard, the star has evolved dramatically in her red carpet style, earning her coveted spots on prestigious best dressed lists.

Here are 5 of her best red carpet looks

2009 OSCARS – The star wowed in a cream strapless Cavalli gown with statement necklace.

2011 Larry Crowne L.A. Premiere  – TJP looked sultry in a short , red bandage dress. Bold move on her part because the colour Red on the Red carpet is a fashion no-no, but she pulled off the look with sky-high heels, glowing skin and barely there jewellery.

2013 Think Like a Man too Premiere – TJP rocked a risqué plunging neckline in a floor length plaid dress, accessorized with a mute bronze clutch and matching shoes. She looked amazing doing it too!

2014 Celebration of Gospel Event BET – As the host of BET’s 14 annual celebration of gospel event, Taraji turned up in a sheer maxi creation by Alaia looking every bit like a dark goddess.

2015 Met Gala – in keeping with the Institute’s Chinese theme, Taraji arrived in a Balenciaga white silk crepe column gown with a black abstract floral pattern, statement earrings by Balenciaga and natural make up.

TJP is definitely fashion’s next ‘One to watch’, hard to believe she’s 45 right?

Season two of empire premiered on 23 September 2015.
