To borrow from a popular Titanic Tumblr meme, it’s been 84 years since we’ve gotten a new episode of Empire.
The powerful Fox hip hop tragedy is finally returning for the back half of its second season. We finally get to learn what happened to Andre and Rhonda’s baby after she was cruelly shoved down the stairs by a masked attacker (expect grim news); and how Lucious is handling the loss of his cherished company (expect crazy).
In order to celebrate the epic return of Empire, we must appreciate the most important thing about the show. It’s not the Emmy-nominated actor, Taraji P. Henson and or Oscar nominee Terrence Howard. It’s not the scene-stealers, Jussie Smollett and Ta’Rhonda Jones. It's not even the music.
It’s Cookie Lyon’s sublime fashion.
The only thing more exciting than what will come out of the mama Lyon’s mouth is what comes out of her closet. From furs to fringe to feathers, nothing is off-limits for the matriarch of this empire. Check out my favorite season 2 ensembles, check out the preview below, and don’t forget to tune into Empire on Wednesdays on Fox at 9/8c.
