Cookie Lyon’s sunglasses is today’s Empire fashion topic! One peek at my dash, and I knew I had to hurry up and publish this post! Although we’re well into the Fall season, it’s never too late to shop for a pair of showstopping sunnies. And if Empire still has your attention, if only for the fashion, then you’re in luck!
This season, Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) really flaunted her sartorial proclivities, boasting lusty-worthy shades from Thierry Lasry, Versace, Dita, and Le Snob.
Let’s recap the styles we’ve seen Cookie Lyon wear thus far:
Cookie Lyon’s Sunglasses: Dita Heartbreaker
Shortly after evacuating the Empire premises (“We’ll start our own company”), Cookie stepped out in a pair of $525 Dita Heartbreaker Sunglasses while chatting strategy.
Cookie Lyon’s Sunglasses: Versace #POPMEDUSA
In front of the “ghetto ass studio” aka “The Pig Sty,” Cookie delivered an inspirational sermon while decked out in head-to-toe Fendi with a dash of Versace in the form of the brand’s $195 Round Sunglasses.
Cookie Lyon’s Sunglasses: Thierry Lasry Swingy 509
This next ID was a bit challenging as we didn’t see Cookie wear her Thierry Lasry shades…or so it appears. When she interrupted Jamal’s Sipping the Tea interview, Cookie was holding a pair of oxblood shades. On costume designer Paolo Nieddu’s Instagram, he identified the sunnies by Thierry Lasry. From there, based on the colorway and the shape of the frames, it looks like Cookie wore their $485 Swingy style in Oxblood.
Cookie Lyon’s Sunglasses: Dita Bluebird Two
Spending “quality time” with oldest sister Candace, Cookie donned another pair of Dita Eyewear Sunglasses, this time slaying with the brand’s $425 Bluebird Two style.
COOKIE LYON’S SUNGLASSES: Dita Starling
Cookie is a such a Dita fiend! While going head-to-head with Luscious over Jamal’s latest hit, she shielded her eyes in a pair of $395 Starling shades. Do these look familiar to you? If so, according to Empire‘s costume designer Paolo Nieddu, these are the same exact sunnies Cookie wore when she sauntered into the boardroom during season one.
COOKIE LYON’S SUNGLASSES: ANNA-KARIN KARLSSON x Le SNOB The Black Swan Sunglasses
I have been waiting to see Cookie wear these €730 ($830.52) Anna-Karin Karlsson for Le SNOB Black Swan Sunglasses on the show. She flipped down one feathered piece while observing Lucious’s ensemble of musicians.
Paolo Nieddu shared a preview of these winged specs on his Instagram a while back.
Cookie Lyon’s Sunglasses: Thierry Lasry Butterscotchy Sunglasses
On her way to visit Shyne, a former associate, Cookie chose a Le Snob and Guess ensemble punctuated with a pair of Thierry Lasry Butterscotchy sunglasses.
