Cookie Lyon is television’s queen. She may not be the ideal mother (given how much she hits her children), or the ideal wife (let’s not even get started on the Lucius-Cookie drama), or even the ideal person. But there’s no denying that she’s one of the most badass personalities on television. This amazing character has been portrayed by none other than Taraji P. Henson.
Born on this day in 1970, Taraji’s first breakthrough role was in the 2001 dramedy, Baby Boy. Her success on the primetime show Empire has made her a fan favorite today. One of the most outstanding things about Cookie Lyon other than the way she talks and the way she walks, is the way she dresses. She wears the most bizarre outfits, but slays them like the queen she is! Take a look at some of the fashion trends she's set.
No one loves animal print as much as Cookie.
She wears it all the time and looks fabulous.
Seriously, just look at this beautiful bedazzling dress.
When she’s not wearing animal print, she’s wearing fur.
And she wears it in all kinds of colors.
Sometimes, she combines animal print and fur.
Talking about animals, check out Cookie’s peacock dress.
Cookie also likes to match her outfits to her accessories.
Like this bright pink leather jumpsuit and bag.
Even her church wardrobe is on fleek.
Happy Birthday, Cookie aka Taraji. You just keep slaying, girl!
