Happy Wednesday vixens! This structured white bodycon dress Anika Calhoun (Grace Gealey) wore to Empire’s white party in “The Lyon’s Roar” looked oddly familiar, so I logged onto ShopBop and peruse their sale selection. In the past, I have been fortunate to find a few of Anika’s wares on the site – whether in stock, on sale or even on clearance.
In tonight’s episode “The Lyon’s Roar,” Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) harmonized with the fam wearing a gray REISS Fion Snake Print Dress. Completely sold out, this dress has a contoured body-con shape with an all-over snake print with piped paneling, a tasteful v-back, and long sleeves.
Reader Yvonne sent in the following Empire query today (I am beyond enthused at this!):
Can’t get Anika’s red dress with the bedazzled collar, from last night’s episode out of my head. Where can I find it?! Thanks!
Yvonne, you’re in luck as I just found the dress!
When I spotted Anika Calhoun (Grace Gealey) in that, dare I say it, scandalous, navy blue lace jumpsuit in the “Enough!” promo for last night’s episode “Our Dancing Days,” I thought it was an interesting choice for her to wear at the office. I also realized this was the blue jumpsuit Gealey mentioned in her Cosmopolitan interview:
Happy Wednesday vixens! I thought I would get the Empire festivities started early with a fashion post. In “Enough!,” a sneak peek from tonight’s episode “Our Dancing Days,” we see Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) following her ex-husband Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) and Vernon Turner (Malik Yoba) into the Empire building. In an earlier sneak peek episode, I only saw Cookie’s white collar and a portion of her pinstriped blouse. I literally thought, “Is Cookie starting to dress like Anika now? Why?” But after watching this new promo, I instantly recognized the python and pinstriped print dress.
