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.

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!
