In the glamorous world of Fox’s hit show Empire, main character Cookie Lyon’s opulent vibe redefines what it means to be a power dresser. Whether rocking a confidence-boosting outfit or conquering the world from her meticulously furnished office, we can’t get enough (as in, we never miss an episode). Read on for a peek into Cookie’s over-the-top career look – for both her closet and the workplace.
In the Closet
When it comes to Cookie’s personal fashion choices, there is no difference between work and play. Her walk-in is filled with pieces that are loud and sometimes a little risqué, just like her – animal print and faux fur, anyone? But this season, her flashy aesthetic evolves beyond her trademark look (statement bling, bedazzled dresses, and fierce makeup) to include tamer separates, tailored blazers, and even (shocker!) denim.
At the Office
Cookie’s interior-design sensibilities are as decadent as her clothing style. Both of her offices – at Empire Entertainment last season and Lyon Dynasty this year – are decorated entirely in a neutral color palette with touches of purple and gold (a.k.a. the colors of royalty and power). Larger-than-life prints make an appearance on curtains and rugs, while her furniture choices are modern, sleek, and straight-up regal.
Now it’s your turn to go bold. Take a cue from Cookie and shop our Get the Look: Style Inspired by Cookie from Empire Boutique, which opens Wednesday, November 18th, at 11AM ET.
