On the Empire episode “Of Hardiness is Mother,” Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) doesn’t listen to Lucious (Terrence Howard) who tells her to take it easy after having a heart attack. Meanwhile, Cookie’s artist Tiana’s (Serayah) new 20 for 20 single takes off and her demeanor changes.
In one scene, Tiana performs in a striking silver ensemble. She wears a shiny silver bra top and matching leggings by iconic designer Paco Rabanne. [The pants sell for $189. The tank top is $66, and a full-length version of the tank top sells for $159.] In the 1960s, the Spanish designer launched a Space Age line of chainmail dresses — which inspired later versions like this less expensive Forever 21 chainmail dress. About his Spring 2018 collection, Rabanne, who now 84, told Vogue, “It was sort of a disco boogie-nights,” he laughed, “but then we cleaned it up. I wanted something a little over the top, but precise and refined.” Empire airs Wednesdays at 8pm on FOX.
