Taraji P. Henson Gets the Mert and Marcus Treatment on W’s Sexy August Cover (Forum Buzz)

W magazine just keeps knocking it out of the park! First Jane Fonda’s amazing June/July 2015 cover and now Taraji P. Henson stars on the August issue. Talk about giving us exactly what we want. Already on the cover of Allure, Taraji gets the Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott treatment, appearing as sultry as ever wearing a simple white tee teamed with a pair of blue jeans — and the actress couldn’t look any sexier.

Forum members were full of praise from the get-go. “Absolutely love this! Seems to be influenced by some older shots of Diana Ross but it’s still quite refreshing even for Mert and Marcus,” praised GERGIN.

“Gorgeous, love the casual styling for the cover, love her face and the accompanying photos are stunning,” Miss Dalloway added.

Also full of enthusiasm was Luxx: “This is So. Damn. Good. Taraji has been working in Hollywood since the 90s so it is great to see her get her moment.”

HeatherAnne loved the end result also, announcing, “Love the womanly sensuality that has been missing in fashion since Roitfeld left. Not that Carine invented it, but she definitely propelled it and there’s been a lack of it in the industry since her outing at Vogue Paris.”

“This looks beautiful! I’m not familiar with Taraji but she’s killing it here!” raved Nepenthes.

JoCaderone even went so far as to scream, “BEST COVER this year for me! BOW DOWN to the QUEEN COOKIE.”
