Henson) stunned in a SINGLE by Galina Sobolev Red Print Wrap Dress in “False Imposition”, which was also the latest outfit spotlighted in the show’s Facebook album “Cookie’s Closet”. The brand’s DVF-esque frock features an all-over, red, white and black animal print pattern, open flowing sleeves with strategic slits, a slight caped back, and a flouncy skirt.

I found out where you can buy (or at least lust over) Cookie Lyon’s (Taraji P. Henson) Chanel Necklace! It’s sold under a few different names; when I first found it, a company identified as a 1990-1992 Vintage Chanel Gold Round Texture Pendant “CC” Logo Chain. However, Piperlime, under their Luxe Vintage Finds special collection, it is a Chanel Cutout Medallion Necklace. Buy it now for $1995.

In “The Devil Quotes Scripture,” Naomi Campbell guest stars as Camilla, a London-based fashion designer who embarks on a scandalous affair with Hakeem. When we first see her, she struts into Laviticus in this DVF metallic gold playsuit. Black fishnet tights sheathed her enviable gams. If you look closely, she has an Alaïa Laser-cut Leather Clutch tucked under her arm. I’ll catch the replay over at the Fox website to see if I can identify her shoes. I’ve been on a roll lately!

Let me start off by saying that I am mostly #teamcookie as I’m sure most of you are. I know we as viewers are supposed to “hate” head of A&R and Lucious’ girlfriend Anika Calhoun (Grace Gealey). But Boo Boo Kitty shut it down in that brilliant ruby halter neck dress with crisscross front panels. My research revealed that some fans of the show wanted her dress. In response, I decided to answer the question and provide an alternative!

I am beyond enthused right now! I needed to unwind during this unbelievably busy week so I figured I’d finally do an Empire post. Like so many of you, I envy Cookie Lyon’s (played wonderfully by Taraji P. Henson) closet. We’re two episodes into the inaugural season and people are constantly talking Cookie’s style. Already, she’s had about nine iconic looks which consist of animal print, fur, and statement accessories.
Costume designer Rita McGhee along with Monique Mosley, Timbaland’s wife, infused Cookie’s wardrobe with all types of glamorous, glitzy gems. Let’s get the look together!
The official Empire Facebook page shares select outfits/pieces from Cookie’s Closet each week. Recently, they featured the following ensemble in which I was able to identify ALL of the pieces Cookie wore in “The Outspoken King”:
