Style to Steal or Girl, Stop: Taraji P. Henson

December 8, 2011  |  

It has been a minute since I’ve seen Taraji hit the red carpet in her Sunday through Saturday best, but she stepped out recently for the premiere of New Year’s Eve in New York City and definitely had heads turning. Let’s see if it was in a good way or not.

Girlfriend showed up and showed out in this very holiday-licious outfit. She strolled in the building in a long sleeve, kelly-green blouse. The neckline had a cinched chiffon thing going on and the fluted sleeves were very wispy and delicate. She tucked that top inside of a fitted black skirt with elaborate stitching detail and a patent leather belt with an ornate buckle. On her feet were suede red pumps that gave her some height (as well as her calves), and her jewelry was very minimal with a large cocktail ring and small studded earrings. Her hair was pretty laid and full of sheen and body, and the makeup was fun with a wine-colored lipstick. From her lips to her top to her toes, she was obviously in the Christmas spirit.

I have mixed feelings on this look. Aside from the belt and the shoes, which I possibly would have switched out or worn in leather, I think it’s a tasteful but fun look. The tucked in top reminds me of something I would wear to a business meeting or a networking event, and the hair is pretty fly.  However, the lipstick is a little dark for my tastes, but as always, Taraji definitely looks cute! As I stated, there are certain things that could have worked better with this look, but I wouldn’t say stop it. I won’t steal it either, but I think the outfit base is fly, it’s just the accessories that could use some work. But all things considered, she looks good.

What do you think of Taraji’s look? Let us know below!
