Taraji is following in the footsteps of part-time model Rihanna as she covers the 2015 issue of W magazine. Looks like Henson has really hit her stride thanks to the wild success of the show Empire. Taraji looks effortlessly beautiful in jeans and a white tee. In the One Tough Cookie editorial Henson reminisces about her career and of course why fans love her Empire character Cookie so darn much. She says,
“They see her heart. They see her intentions. And they love her style—her style is 17 years behind the fashion curve, which makes the clothes a character on the show. As Cookie grows, you’ll see her fashion grow. And people love that—she’s a work in progress. The only thing that never changes is her spirit: To me, Cookie is living, breathing, walking truth.”
Empire has taken the top spot away from The Big Bang Theory as being the number one broadcast on television. Taraji plays a huge part in the show’s success and is proud to play such a bold, robust character.
