Though confessing to never wear leopard prints or any prints anymore for that matter, thanks to her role on hit TV series 'Empire' the actress dished on her style and the perks (and craziness that comes with her role as Cookie Lyon ) that come with her biggest project yet.

Revealing she wears a lot of black dresses these days, she confessed to keeping her dresses especially the one's she received awards in, according to her "One day I'll be famous enough or important enough where people will want my shit like Elizabeth Taylor's."

On her style on the hit network series 'Empire'

"You're right.' I've seen babies dressed up like Cookie, men dressed up like Cookie, dogs dressed up like Cookie." She offers a sly note. "But you have to be into drag. If you're not, it may not come off right."
