Henson knows if something isn’t broken, there’s no need to fix it. That’s why she dons a black dress with a glitzy zebra-inspired clutch for a timeless look.
Black and white get a fresh pick-me-up with a bold zigzag pattern and a scarlet satin clutch.
Riding the asymmetrical wave, Henson shows off a one shoulder cappuccino colored dress that’s shaped perfectly for her body.
This isn’t your mother’s little black dress. A fitted bodice and dark cheetah print keep this sassy number contemporary.
An amber colored sunset is the inspiration for Henson's empire-waist gown. For jewelry? Stick with metallic gold and bronze accessories, like Taraji, to pick up and compliment the earthy shades.  
Looking like the Hollywood “queen” she is, Henson poses in a long black evening gown for the premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
Knowing how to wear color is a skill in itself. This starlet gets an A+ for her bubblegum pink mini dress and striking blue suede heels.
A white halter dress with ruffled neckline embodies everything feminine chic.
Have an event to attend? Stick with an allover silver look to stand out among the sea of black and purple this season.
Henson makes her grand entrance at the 2009 SAG Awards in a simple, yet white hot Herve Leroux gown that evokes old Hollywood glamour.
Actress Taraji Henson is a woman redefining what it means to be fabulous and almost 40 in Hollywood. Her most recent work as Queenie (Brad Pitt’s adoptive mother) in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was mesmerizing. Hollywood is finally paying attention; Henson garnered an Academy Award nomination this year for Best Supporting Actress.

We love how she dresses “age-appropriate” without compromising her individual style. Why not? 40 is the new 30 right?
