What hasn't already been said about Cookie Lyon's fashion? Played by Taraji P. Henson, the fierce and undoubtedly fabulous matriarch of Lee Daniels' hit show Empire, Cookie is known for her amazing one liners, boss lady attitude, and, of course, her sick wardrobe. Fresh out of jail, Cookie’s style screams hip hop glam meets edgy high fashion. From gold layered jewelry that was hot in the '90s to mink furs and snatched ponytails, her style is as loud as her personality.

At times, Cookie's look may seem dated, but costume designer Rita McGhee has described Cookie's style as a “a mix of Sharon Stone in Casino and Diana Ross in Mahogany.” Her iconic outfits have become so popular that FOX has even developed a page showing viewers how to recreate Cookie's closet.

For all you Empire fans counting down the days until the Sept. 23 season premiere, just hold tight. We can obviously expect more drama, music, fashion, and #freelucious-ness soon. While the day can’t come soon enough, we can entertain ourselves in the meantime by dreaming of the straight-off-the-runway looks she'll probably be enjoying come September. Whether she’s strutting down the streets (or the sidewalk), everything is Cookie's catwalk after all.
