Cookie’s got so many flavors!
FOX’s Empire is back tonight for part two of its second season, and while we’re excited to watch Jamal’s hot hookups, to find out who pushed Anika down those steps and to see what becomes of Lucious’ empire, we’re more ecstatic to see Cookie Lyon’s supafly style.
Taraji P. Henson’s character is known for her glam trap-queen aesthetic, peppered with funky furs, sky-high stilettos and plenty of animal prints. “It’s like fashion on crack!” she told ET Online. “It’s high drama. I get to dress up and wear things I can’t afford or that I just wouldn’t buy because I’m cheap.”
Henson, 45, has noted that she and her character have plenty of differences — but her inner Cookie often comes out on Instagram. A cursory scroll down her page, followed by 7.3 million fans, shows off quite the variety of hairstyles. Scroll below for Henson’s wildest wigs, and don’t forget to tune into Empire on March 30 at 9 p.m. ET on FOX.
She can do it! Henson wrapped her curls in a printed scarf a la Rosie the Riveter, letting her blunt bangs peek through.
Just fine! She went to great lengths while channeling friend Mary J. Blige.
The mom of Marcel Johnson, 21, with her late boyfriend William Johnson, joked about her “#restingBitchFace,” but we only noticed those side-swooped bangs.
Purple reign! She was “#playingWithColor” in a purple, blue and gray ombre wig.
Such a tease: Her blonde curls with brown roots were very ’80s, baby!
