Hollywood actress and fashion trendsetter Taraji P. Henson has consistently captivated us with her red carpet ensembles. However, her recent off-duty outfits have sparked a new level of style envy.

In a departure from her usual high fashion choices, the TIME100 honoree embraced streetwear, showcasing a unique head-to-toe denim look from Dior. The style switch-up—envisioned by Taraji herself—is a major moda moment.

Let’s get into the details.

During her visit to New York for Mary J. Blige’s Strength Of A Woman Fest, Taraji wore a poppin’ mix of luxury tailoring and edgy street style in monochromatic indigo blue. Her outfit featured an oversized hooded jean jacket, a blue monogram bodysuit, and fitted jeans, all from Dior.

Taraji paired her denim coordinates with a blue monogram saddle bag, a monogram belt, and stacked chains. Silver and iced out, one of the Baby Boy star’s chains read, “Taraji” in cursive.

But the bombshell beauty didn’t stop her stand-out look there. She elevated her ensemble with additional silver jewelry, custom rhinestone fangs, and Dior-script eyeshadow. 

Taraji’s look was a hit among her fans, who flooded her with praise. The multihyphenate, who recently released a children’s book, shared images of her stunning outfit on May 14.

Within a day, her posts garnered over 140,000 likes and 2,000 comments, a testament to how much Taraji ate up the girlies with this look. Sis, there were no crumbs left.

“THE DETAIL IS LITERALLY SICKENING!!😮‍💨,” wrote one commenter, alluding to the specifics of this loo we love. While “Yeeessssss ma’am!! It’s givin’ Ms. Cookie Lyon is B-A-C-K like she never left.. and we have definitely missed HEEEEEERRRRRERR!!!!! SEEEEERRRRRVVVVVVEEEEE!!!! wrote another reminding us of Taraji’s iconic and unforgettable role as Empire’s Cookie Lyon.
