Taraji P. Henson Receives Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame in a Red-Hot Look

Taraji P. Henson is the latest celeb to receive a star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame. The Oscar and Emmy-nominated actress accepted the honor today in Los Angeles with “I Can Do Bad All by Myself” co-star Mary J. Blige on hand.

The 48-year-old “Empire” star posed with friends and family, including her mother, son and fiancé, former NFL star Kelvin Hayden, wearing an attention-grabbing red look courtesy of Akris’ spring ’19 collection. The ensemble, which came with a mesh net coat, a matching top and an asymmetrical pleated skirt, debuted on the catwalk at the Swiss fashion house’s runway show at Paris Fashion Week last fall.
