Empire’s influence can be felt everywhere, from forays into fashion a la the Cookie-inspired Saks Fifth Avenue line to spot-on Halloween costumes attempted by fans everywhere.

The Accessories Council took notice of the Empire impact at Monday’s 19th Annual ACE Awards, honoring Taraji P. Henson and Empire costume designer Paolo Nieddu with Influencers Awards.

Henson proved she’s a true style star as she dazzled on the red carpet in a fierce cut-out Alexander Wang dress, strappy sandals and black accessories. Fierce! 

Congratulations Taraji and Paolo!
