Sheer is in!

On Sunday, both Taraji P. Henson and Tinashe rocked two different, yet equally sheer numbers on the BET Awards stage and carpet. How FABOOSH!

The Empire actress certainly slayed in her black and silver ensemble as she proved to everyone watching that she is, in fact, ageless. We see you, girl.

However, the Pretend singer one-upped Taraji's outfit by rocking a particularly seXXXy Philipp Plein ensemble. We mean, Tinashe was nearly naked on the red carpet as she showed off her butt (below)!

As you've probably noticed by now, the co-creator of the FOX hit has been dodging lawsuits left and right from people who claim that the hip-hop drama was stolen!

The Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson series has already dealt with litigation from a woman who claimed the show stole her life story and another from a man who alleged the producers jacked the idea of lead character Lucious Lyon!

Well, it looks like Daniels just scored another victory because in a federal court ruling this week, a judge shot down yet another lawsuit saying that Empire was ripped off from someone else's original script!

Why do they keep having so much legal trouble??
