Taraji P. Henson wasn’t afraid to take a risk at the premiere of Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty Vol. 4 runway show. Launching on Nov. 9, the fourth annual Savage X Fenty show — aptly titled “Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 4” —  will be streamed online through Amazon’s Prime Video platform.

The Emmy Award-winning actress struck a pose on the red carpet in Simi Valley, Calif. today, wearing a bold sheer minidress. The see-through black style featured a rounded halter-neck silhouette, upheld by thin straps and accented with several diamond rings and stud earrings. A matching sheer shawl finished Henson’s ensemble with a sultry monochrome twist.

When it came to footwear, Henson’s shoes were not visible. However, it’s likely she donned a set of heeled shoes for the occasion, whether a pointed set of pumps, heeled sandals, or sky-high platforms. Sneakers and lace-up boots also proved popular options for numerous stars on the red carpet, including Bella Poarch, Simu Liu, and Sheryl Lee Ralph.

In a similarly sleek style, Henson wore a glittering silver corset, robe, and skirt during her scenes in the Savage X Fenty show film.
