Werk! After glamming it up for Allure just last week, Taraji P. Henson is serving up serious sexy swag like we’ve never seen from her before for W Magazine August 2015 Pop Issue. To say she’s outdone her breakout Empire character, Cookie, in the five-page spread would be an understatement.
Her wet hairstyle look is the perfect accessory for her dramatic shimmer smokey eyes and bronzed skin. With a very Janet Jackson-esque feel, Henson is stunning, style by Edward Enninful in everything from a Roberto Cavalli halter dress and Sportmax off-the-shoulder dress to a fire engine Equipment blouse (that seemed to only be in the shot to add some color).
Be sure to check out the full interview on W Magazine where she dishes on first being afraid of her character Cookie, who she says represents the “American dream”, and taking risks online now. And, click through for images from the spread and behind-the-scenes footage.
