Taraji P. Henson Emmys 2015: Actress Wears BFF Alexander Wang On Red Carpet

Fierceness alert.

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.

Henson is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series tonight for her role as Cookie Lyon on "Empire."
