If you’re one of the literally millions of people impatiently awaiting the season premiere of Empire tomorrow, you know why we’ve convened today to celebrate the handbag stylings of Taraji P. Henson. She plays Cookie Lyon, who’s not only the show’s heart and soul, but also its most fantastic character and the carrier of some of the most notable designer bags on television. (More on Cookie’s style tomorrow, though.)
Although Taraji has been a celebrated actress for a long time (she was nominated for an Oscar in 2010), her role as Cookie has inspired increased paparazzi attention, which means we now have enough evidence of her handbag habits to warrant a little bit of discussion. Check out what we’ve found below, and get ready for a whole lot of Chanel.
