Happy Throwback Tuesday! I spent my this past weekend re-watching past Empire episodes to see if I missed anything. Well, when I watched this scene, I remembered I had this post in draft that I still needed to finish.
Did you notice Tiana Brown (Serayah McNeill) handed Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) her black plexiglass Chanel-inspired Perfume Bottle iPhone Case in Empire episode 4 “False Imposition?” The sensual songstress hit up our favorite Cookie Monster to talk about her “Keep It Movin'” demo and to seek suggestions to make it pop.

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.
Update: The Chanel Cutout Medallion Necklace is sold out at Piperlime.com.

Unfortunately, Fox has cancelled The X-Factor USA – the talent competition show won’t be returning this Fall. In memoriam, I wanted to do a tribute to all the hair and makeup looks Kelly Rowland’s glam team created for the chanteuse during the show’s three seasons. With makeup by celebrity makeup artist Sheika Daley and celebrity hairstylists Cesar Ramirez and Crystal Oliver on hair, here are 13 of Rowland’s most riveting appearances:
