Paolo Nieddu, the expert stylist and costume designer currently working on Empire, recently had a brilliant idea to borrow a page from Rihanna's stylebook when dressing Taraji P. Henson's fashionable, fearless and hilarious character, Cookie.
With Henson taking to Instagram to show off the customized pair of Rihanna's Manolo Blahnik boots, she hails Nieddu as a "genius," and excitedly captions her post "#Cookie came to #DragandSLAY."
For this look, the thigh-high denim heeled boots are carefully adorned with various charms, and were paired with a gorgeous fur and white dress shirt. Henson is correct, this look designed for Cookie is absolutely on point.
Take a look at the stunning details of Nieddu's take on RiRi's statement boots, as well as Henson fiercely testing them out, in the posts below.
