Though Cookie Lyon’s over the top wardrobe on Empire is fictional, actress Taraji P. Henson’s IRL style isn’t far off from that of the character she masterfully portrays. Henson proved just that Monday afternoon as the 45-year-old beauty confidently strolled across Miami’s sandy beaches in a colorful Emilio Pucci bathing suit, adorned with a body chain that showcased the toned bod she works so hard to maintain.
In the image above, the Emmy-nominated actress not only rocks the geometric two-piece, but also slays with a grey Chanel tote, oversize sunglasses, and an braided ‘do. Yes, her accessories are definitely on point; however, it's her handsome arm candy that’s sparking some buzz.
Henson was spotted hand-in-hand with 32-year-old hunky NFL player Kelvin Hayden (above). While we’re not sure how close the tropical-loving pair are, we do know they surely look flawless together.
We think Cookie Lyon would definitely approve.
