I literally thought, “Is Cookie starting to dress like Anika now? Why?” But after watching this new promo, I instantly recognized the python and pinstriped print dress.

Currently a DVF exclusive and on sale for $299 on the site, this piece employs the brand’s most iconic jumpsuit style and their signature silk jersey. While most of Cooke’s voluminous mane hid most of the jumpsuit’s collar, I could clearly see the banded tie waist which aided my search!

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.

Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) wore a French Connection Orange Viven Colorblock Jersey Dress in Sunrise on Empire Season 1, Episode 2 “The Outspoken King.”

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:”
