I’m kicking off my Empire season 2 fashion coverage by identifying the white ribbed sweater and matching ribbed dress Anika Calhoun (Grace Gealey) wore in the fall promo trailer. Boo Boo Kitty returned as her devilish debutante self in a $1,147.67 Gucci White Viscose Ribbed Cardigan paired with a $1,535.39 Gucci White Viscose Ribbed Dress, both still available at Profile.
Here’s a rundown of what Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) wore in the Empire 2-hour season finale:
Cookie tried to smother Lucious in a
$368 $123.29 BCBGMAXAZRIA Jaime Cable-Knit Inspired Jacquard Dress.
Can you please tell me where Boo Boo Kitty’s red jumpsuit from the season finale is from?
Why certainly, Shavonne! Anika Calhoun (Grace Gealey) rumbled with Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) in a $164.99 BCBGMAXAZRIA Rossana Cutout Back Jumpsuit in Red Berry.
So “Sins of the Father” has not debuted yet here in Washington state, but I can tell you what Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) wore in this promising scene with Malcolm (Derek Luke)! Cookie wore a figure-hugging, $1,651 Givenchy Mosaic Print Sheath Dress accentuated with an Alexis Bittar Snake Necklace to conduct official Empire business.
Cookie’s multicolour, digital print, sequin printed, cotton jersey dress features a banded crew neck, long sleeves, a fitted sheath silhouette, a hem that hits past the knees and a hidden back zip. It’s mostly sold out (which goes for most of Cookie’s lustworthy wares) but FarFetch has it on sale for $1,085.
Step into glamorous territory with a strapless fringe jumper. Internal structural boning at upper bodice. Zipper closure at back. In white.
Get a very similar look with SwankBlue’s $42 Long Hail the Queen Necklace:

If I just had the disposable income, I would invest in this silver satin-trimmed, grey wool trenchcoat Anika Calhoun (Grace Gealey) wore in this scene with Hakeem Lyon (Bryshere Gray).
It’s a $630 Karen Millen Glam Trench Coat from their Classic Investment collection, and it’s currently available at Bloomingdale’s for $425. It’s constructed out of a wool/polyamide/cashmere blend and has tonal contrast insets, two front storm flaps, and a detachable self-tie belt.

I have been waiting patiently (as I am sure most of you have as well) for Wednesday because I couldn’t wait to share what Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) wore in episode 9 “Unto the Breach.” I had an inkling Cookie dipped into her treasure chest for more Roberto Cavalli jewels (since she wore jewelry from the brand in last week’s episode), and I was right! She chose a $2005 Roberto Cavalli Brass and Plexiglass Monkey Necklace (!) with the matching $1285 Brass and Plexiglass Monkey Cuff Bracelet.
