Our favourite Cookie has arrived at the Primetime Emmy Awards.

That cookie is of the Taraji P. Henson kind, btw.

The gorgeous "Empire" actress walked the red carpet wearing a custom Alexander Wang gown with a stunning sheer skirt and chain straps. The 45-year-old star told E's Ryan Seacrest wearing Wang to the Emmys was special for her, as she was the designer's date for this year's Met Gala. #BFFalert

The Critics' Choice award winner for Best Actress in a Drama Series wore a stunning glittering purple eyeshadow with gorgeous eyelashes and a glossy lip. And oh my goodness, her dark lob's shine was making us all kinds of jealous.
