We have to talk about her fly girl outfit for a moment.
One would imagine that Taraji P. Henson was a fly girl back in the day, but the superstar just proved our assumptions with a life giving throwback Thursday post.
The star took to Instagram to give fans a glimpse at Taraji circa 1991 and it is truly everything!
“#TBT #SeniorPix You couldn’t tell her ISH!!! She knew she belonged in #Hollywood right here, she just didn’t know how she was getting there but she DREAMED BIG AF!!! #DidntknowIn91betchaknowmeNOW *Diddy voice*” she wrote.
Aside from the obvious #TBT goodness of this post, we’d just like to take the time to discuss her look because it’s definitely a moment.
First and foremost, we absolutely love her for rocking these cream oversized shades in the senior picture— simply because we understand now that this was clearly an indication that Cookie Lyon was in her future.
Also a sign of the times are her fly door knocker earrings, name necklace and cream top with serious shoulder pads. Taraji is pretty much ’90s style personified in this photo and we love it.
Thank you Taraji for sharing this super fly throwback moment that gave us all the nostalgia — you’ve definitely always been fabulous.
