Taraji P Henson's stunning new look will transfix you

She looks incredible! 

Why wear an LBD when you can wear this? Never one to shy away from a style statement, Taraji P. Henson made fans swoon when she popped up on Instagram wearing a shimmery, sleek one-shoulder dress. 

The metallic Alexander Vauthier number came complete with a high slit, and her stylist Jason Bolden paired it with black Christian Louboutin heels and silver Alexis Bittar hoop earrings.

As for her glam, the Empire star sported a dramatic eye and a lip hue that matched her eyeshadow thanks to makeup artist Saisha Beecham, and hairstylist Ty Wallace pulled her hair into a top bun with side bangs.

Fans were quick to comment on the post with one writing, “Dipped in bronze and sprinkled with gold!” Another added, “That dress!”, while an additional follower chimed in: “It’s the glow on the skin.” 

Many more chimed in, dropping fire and heart emojis, and asking what beauty product was used to get Taraji’s glow. 

Although that hasn't been revealed just yet, consider trying Fenty Beauty’s Body Lava Body Luminizer or Ciate London’s Dewy Stix Body Oil Gloss, which give a similar glowing effect.
