Just when we thought magazines were going to fail us this month, Allure unveils its gorgeous new cover. Taraji P. Henson unexpectedly surfaced on the beauty-focused magazine’s July 2015 edition sending us into a frenzy. Captured by Carter Smith, the star of FOX’s hit TV series Empire works a plunging Lurex chiffon dress from J. Mendel while serving good face as she gazes down the lens.
Forum members voiced their praise the moment the cover surfaced. “I love this! Taraji’s skin looks amazing and she looks confident and sexy!! 44 never looked any better,” hailed RanThe.
“Damn, she looks good. Carter [Smith] did that,” added an enthusiastic arlekindearrabal.
Also feeling it was TeeVanity who announced, “Loving it, stunning.”
“As a Cookie fan, I’m in LOVE with this!” celebrated Fotoholic24.
MirandaPriestly was quick to show some love, announcing, “She looks fantastic.”
Our forums wouldn’t be the same without a diverse range of opinions, however. “She looks good there, but I don’t see anything special on this,” shared GlamorousBoy.
Feeling the same way was MON: “I want to like it but there’s something awkward about the cover. But the editorial looks good.”
