She's out to drop jaws!!
The Empire actress channels her inner '70s starlet with a very bold look in the spread, wearing a sparkling silver Temperley London gown, Paul Andrew sandals, and Alexis Bittar rings.
This may be our fave look of hers yet!!
She even said of the shoot:
"It was very Diana Ross, very disco, Studio 54, big, big, big hair, lots of jewelry, big earrings, the stuff I like to wear. I'm a '70s baby so I hate I missed the era of Studio 54 ’cause I would've had a good time. I probably would've been dead but it would've been a good time!"
But Empire wouldn't be the same without you, Taraji!
Anyway, we'd totally be down with seeing the 44-year-old slay the red carpet in a look just like the one (above)!
The rest of the spread, BTS shots, and the dynamic cover are just as much of a must-see — so be sure to check them out in the gallery (above), too!
