The body-hugging dress, which is from the famed designer’s pre-fall 2021 collection, not only flattered her toned figure but showed it off. Taraji’s stylist, Jason Bolden, completed the look with bejeweled black platform stilettos, and her hairstylist Tym Wallace styled her locks in gorgeous soft waves.
The What Men Want star had an ethereal glow as she stood in a home on blonde hardwood floors with the Los Angeles skyline in the background.

The renowned thesp has been open about her fitness journey during the pandemic. She told WSJ Magazine last September that quarantining deterred her fitness goals, so she began a 30-day fitness challenge ahead of her 50th birthday on Sept. 11.
Since then, the Coffee & Kareem actress has been taking things up a notch, knocking out intense cardio workouts and a ton of body-toning exercises daily, and sharing her progress with fans on Instagram.

Taraji generally begins with 20 minutes of cardio, telling the magazine, "I usually do that on the elliptical," she said. "If I’m feeling really adventurous, I’ll do a 20-minute stint on my Peloton bike. If I’m feeling really lazy, I’ll just walk it out on the treadmill."

She has also gotten into boxing and intermittent fasting, meaning she doesn’t eat anything until 11 a.m., and her first meal is a shake "I take vitamin C. I take iron. I put elderberry powder, spirulina, and collagen in my shake," Taraji continued.
Taraji’s longtime trainer Mike T has sung her praises too, telling InStyle, “She’s a warrior in the gym. I’ve never had anything that she’s backed down from—she’s a dream client.”
