Although she may be best known for stunning as the fierce and fabulous Cookie Lyon on Empire, Taraji P. Henson looks just as stylish in her new film Tyler Perry’s Acrimony. The seasoned actress plays Melinda, the faithful wife of a man (played by Lyriq Bent) who later betrays her. The jilted and angry Melinda manages to stay chic throughout the movie, and rocks a series of sleek black ensemble. We are especially this fitted LBD with its curve-hugging shape and its illusion neckline. If you want to steal her look for either business or play, we have curated a few inspired dresses right here.
Carmen Marc Valvo Infusion Illusion Sheath Dress, $193: This cap-sleeved number can easily be accessorized with a bold statement necklace, or worn with matching black pumps just like Henson’s character. With its pleated skirt and sheer chiffon neckline, this illusion dress has a classic yet feminine look.
Maggy London Illusion Yoke Crepe Sheath Dress, $200: The sheer bodice and sweetheart neckline bring visual interest to this otherwise minimalist crepe dress. Meanwhile, a midi hemline and nipped in waist help to define the style.
Elie Tahari Saskia Illusion Sleeveless Dress, $477: With its form-fitted silhouette, this sleeveless sheath can certainly take you from daytime to dinner. The sheer panels and slightly flared above-the-knee hemline complete the design.
