Jussie Smollett and Taraji P. Henson at the EW Fest

Posted on October 26, 2015

“Empire” stars Jussie Smollett and Taraji P. Henson attend Entertainment Weekly’s first ever “EW Fest” presented by LG OLED TV in New York City.

 

Okay, this is cute; like they’re at a Mother-Son luncheon or something:

As casual looks go, there is not one thing about Jussie’s that we’d change. He looks really cute.

As slightly more formal looks go, while we love Taraji’s dress, we don’t love those shoes with it at all. It’s not just the focus-pulling red that bugs, it’s the busyness of the design. It’s a bit visually heavy when you want to be drawing the eye up to her face and neck. And speaking of which, we detect a marked improvement in her hair and makeup game. We suspect the sheer number of high-end fashion editorials she’s done in the last year (probably more than at any other time in her career) has really taught her the importance of properly done face and hair for the red carpet. She’s a little shiny, and we admit, we don’t get the pale lip with an outfit that’s all about the pops of red, but she looks pretty great.
