Billboard Music Awards 2015: Empire’s Taraji P Henson steals the show in revealing cut out dress on the red carpet

by NL staff

 

Taraji P Henson, 44 seemed to have brought Cookie Lyons; her flamboyant character in hit TV series Empire with her after she chose a very risqué black cut out dress by Alexandre Vauthier to Sunday’s Billboard Music billboard awards at the MGM arena in Las Vegas.

Henson seemed very comfortable as she posed for the camera on the red carpet, seemingly oblivious to flashing some skin in some (ahem) ‘cheeky’ places, but we can’t really blame her can we? If you look this good at 44, you’d feel fabulous too and want the world to know it.

Stars have taken to flashing (excess) skin lately at various high-profile events and this one was no exception. British singer Rita Ora admitted to E!’s Guiliana Rancic that she had to go commando for her scandalously revealing white ensemble. After her show stopping appearance on the red carpet, the 24-year-old reportedly legged it from the awards show, which was a good thing as she won’t have had to endure the very affectionate (and quite honestly cute, sorry Rita!) display of affection between her ex Calvin Harris and 5 time winner on the night Taylor Swift.

The pair publicly confirmed the rumours during the ceremony as they sat side by side throughout, whispering in each others ears and even kissing after the former country singer won an award. As is customary for celeb couples, fans have already coined a name for the pair and so, ‘Talvin‘ has now apparently become a thing.

We’re seriously wishing Taylor luck this time around.
