    Taraji P. Henson is hitting up the Emmys in a way that would definitely make Cookie Lyons proud: looking fierce as hell.

    Dressed in custom Alexander Wang, Henson is taking the LBD to the next level, thanks to plenty of cutouts, lace, and an edgy chain-strap detail. With simple, sexy makeup and minimal accessories, the actress is rocking a classic red-carpet vibe—but with a full, see-through skirt, she’s looking hotter than ever. We will always be faithful to a classic black gown, but sometimes you just need to turn up the heat

    Tonight, Henson is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for her role in Empire, and if she (or Viola Davis, who is also in the category) wins, then she will be the first African-American actress to win the category—and this is one amazingly badass dress to wear while potentially making history.
