Taraji P. Henson (8)

Hollywood actress Taraji P. Hensen celebrated her birthday on Friday, September 11 and was hosted to a private dinner at Asia de Cuba on Saturday, September 12 in New York City.

The Empire actress turned 45 and looked ageless in a sheer Moschino Couture shirt dress from the brand’s Resort 2016 collection. Taraji paired her sheer ensemble with gold stilettos and accessorized with a diamond-encrusted Chanel necklace.

    Hmmmm dt golden cake is a piece of ART, love it, love it, love it. All thanks to EMPIRE, Taraji is gradually becoming a house hold name. Gooooooo girl !!!!!! it’s your turn to shine.. Well I must add that the see through gown looks too risque and inappropriate for a 45YR old bday bash. You have got talent girl so you don’t have to go that extra mile to get attention. Leave such cheap stunts for the KARDASHIANS…..

    I love how her dress was sheer, but you don’t really have a clear shot of any body part. It almost seems like a ‘decent’ sheer dress, if such an oxymoron existed.

    Happy birthday Taraji ‘Cookie’!
