Taraji P. Henson ditched her tough onscreen exterior when she attended a special screening of her upcoming film Hidden Figures in New York City on Saturday.
The 46-year-old star made sure to stand out from the crowd in a form-fitting bold red gown that flaunted her svelte physique.
She flashed a hint of cleavage in the floor-length frock which featured her slender waistline.
Her silky raven tresses were styled in relaxed waves and cut to a blunt bob, allowing her frock to take centre stage.
The Golden Globe winner added a deep burgundy lip to match, large silver hoop earrings and a diamond cuff bracelet.
Taraji paused for snapshots with her A-list co-stars, Octavia Spencer, 46, and Janelle Monáe, 31.
Recording artist Janelle made a showstopping appearance in a lustrous silver two-piece suit.
