Sent your DVRs, friends. Season 2 of Fox's hit show Empire debuts on Wednesday night, and while some people are watching for the campy drama and others tune in for the Timbaland-produced original music, we'll be watching, as always, to see what Cookie Lyon (a.k.a. Taraji P. Henson) is wearing. (And what comes out of her mouth. We like that too, kitty boo boo!)
In anticipation, let's review how Cookie, in prison for 17 years while her ex-husband built a music empire, used her sartorial skills to maneuver herself into the most powerful person at Empire Entertainment in Season 1. Who run the world? Cookie, and with her fashion cues as a guiding force, you can too.
