Taraji P. Henson continues to be fabulous!
The Empire star looked much more approachable than her TV alter-ego at the Dope premiere during the 19th annual American Black Film Festival in New York on Thursday.
Dressed in a vibrant orange strapless dress and silver sandals, Taraji oozed confidence and sex appeal while posing for photogs.
And she didn't look like she'd kill you if you stepped out of line! Ha!
The actress raised the glamour level further by accessorizing with gold earrings, a nameplate necklace, and some delicate gold bangles.
The only thing out of place was her black Apple watch, but we'll let that slide.
