In other news about Ms. Henson….
Taraji spent a few days in Paris where she and director Lee Daniels attended the Series Mania festival this week. They were on hand to introduce “Empire” to an audience of French fans.
While in Paris, Taraji stopped by Chanel and CoCo’s apartment where she received the royal treatment. She captioned, “#CoCoChanel #31RueCambon *singing* “I’m in love with the CoCo”…..Chanel that is.”
And this pic is why we LOVE Taraji. She classy AND down-to-Earth. Did she really step out of the Chanel boutique and put on her “house shoes”? Yes she did! She joked, “Until next time Paris!!!! HA! Lots of walking in Paris. My feet were hurting!!!!”
Do you boo!
