Taraji P. Henson in Edition by Georges Chakra at the 2015 NAACP Image Awards

Posted on February 09, 2015

We would have clapped and laughed if she’d shown up in full-on Cookie Lyon drag, but we can understand the desire to shoot for something glamorously elegant instead.

It’s a tiny bit “beauty pageant,” but the styling rather smartly manages to play that down. We’re not sure if we love her with that braid, but we can respect it as a choice to go with this dress. Similarly, we love that bracelet, which is both appropriately glamorous but makes an elegant punctuation point for the look. We don’t think we’re on board with the earrings. We like the general idea, but in almost every pic, we think it looks like she has little fish hanging off her ears. Hoops, yes. Even hoops-plus. But we don’t love the design of the “-plus” part here.
