When it comes to killing a red carpet, Taraji P. Henson never disappoints—but on Sunday night, she brought her A-game.
The Empire star rocked two stunning looks at the Emmys and looked flawless in both of them. Henson’s stylist, Jason Bolden, dished to Billboard about his client’s super sultry ensembles.

‘Getting ready music’ is essential for every woman who needs to prepare before a big night. On Taraji’s music of choice, Bolden says that if Taraji “hears house music she’ll bust a move. She’s like a nice little encyclopedia of music. If you go to her house you never know what you’re going to hear because it’s always different. From fittings to dinners at her house it will be from Bob Marley to Afrika Bambaataa to Drake to Rihanna…”
It’s hard to choose a favorite look after styling someone for years, but Bolden said that his fave was the “long sleeve plunging neckline Balmain she wore to the NAACP awards. The dress was stuck in customs and she was going to wear something else, but when I got a hold of it, I pulled it out of my bag and she tried it on. She told me she’s not taking it off, and I told her I didn’t want her to take it off. There were no alterations or anything. You hear stories about stars who have multiple fittings and tons of options, but Taraji needs clarity and she does not need a shit load of options because she is so secure in who she is, and for me that is exactly why we work so well together.”
