Taraji P. Henson is a fashion chameleon, and proved as much by showing off two very different looks at last night's Primetime Emmy Awards.
On the red carpet, the Empire star and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series nominee looked fresh and pretty as a spring day in a lemon yellow custom Vera Wang dress with her hair in fresh-from-the-beach waves.
Once inside, Taraji changed into a drastically different look, and crushed it all the same.
The floor-length brown sequined gown also from Vera Wang with full sleeves and keyhole cutout couldn't be a greater departure from her earlier look, and when paired with a blunt, banged bob, Taraji looked like a gorgeous, stylish android:

While it's clear from her Instagram caption that Taraji had a hell of a glam squad to help her achieve these looks, the common denominator was certainly her own fierce self. Well done, Cookie!
