Magazine covers: Taraji P. Henson x W Magazine: "The Pop Issue"

Taraji P. Henson graces the cover of W Magazine's "The Pop Issue". Inside the spread, the actress and red-carpet fashion-killer talks her unapologetic style on screen as Cookie Lyon, and how she's pushing boundaries within each episode of Empire

From the opening scene after a 17-year stint in prison, Cookie Lyon was a force to be reckoned with as she stood dipped in three-quarter length white fur coat and a printed bodycon mini skirt, and let's not forget the dramatic slicked back ponytail. 

"They want Cookie. 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.”  (SOURCE)
