Look away, Lucious! Empire goddess Taraji P. Henson strutted her stuff at the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, Sept. 20. The Fox star, who had a breakout year thanks to her role as Cookie Lyon, wore a black custom Alexander Wang gown with a peekaboo cutout at the top, silver chain straps, and an entirely sheer bottom that flashed her curvy features. 

Walking the 100-plus degree carpet with her 21-year-old son, Marcel Henson, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Taraji, 45, traded jokes and innuendos with E! host Ryan Seacrest

"I'm so hot. You're hot," she said to him on the live red carpet special. "You always were hot, but now you're hotter!" 

The Best Actress in a Drama Emmy nominee also gave some insight into the second season of Lee Daniel's delicious drama.
