Taraji P. Henson Covers ‘Allure’ & Glows Like A Golden Goddess

Whether she's slaying the game on the red carpet (see: her CFDA Fashion Awards red dress) or kicking it old school with some Janet Jackson vibes, Taraji P. Henson from Empire is always looking sexy. And on the cover of July's issue of Allure , Taraji P. Henson is definitely bringing the heat. She looks absolutely glowing while doing so, too. Without a doubt, you can always expect this smize queen to look fierce and classy. And in a society where looking "sexy" is typically defined by how much skin you're showing, it's refreshing to see Henson bring back this classy-sexy side.

With a mix of beautiful shimmery gold and metallic rose eye shadow, Henson's makeup looks like the perfect flirty look to wear on any girl's night out. The rosy colors are echoed in her cheeks and lips, which are all brought together by her low-cut, metallic red dress. As for her hair do, her tight curls look like they've been tussled a bit for that effortless messy look. From her makeup and hair to her dress, Henson once again worked the sultry look flawlessly. But I feel like what makes her extra sexy, is just how real she is. Allure questioned her about why she chooses not to date any of her co-stars and she responded, "I always wanted to be known for my work. Not who I dated. Not who I slept with.... I have a gift, and my gift is acting." Now if that kind of confidence and empowerment isn't sexy, I don't know what is.
