Met Gala 2015: Taraji P. Henson Looks Classic in Black-and-White

Taraji P. Henson Met Gala 2015

Taraji P. Henson made a red carpet appearance with designer Alexander Wang by her side at the 2015 Met Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 4) in New York City.

Unlike her over the top Empire star Cookie, the 44-year-old actress kept her look simple, but classic for her first time being pictured at the fashion event.

Henson looked sultry in black-and-white Balenciaga strapless column gown. The dress featured a black abstract floral pattern created entirely from black beads and black rhinestones.

She completed her look with Balenciaga pearl-tipped earrings, a diamond bracelet and an ebony clutch.
