We love her for her unstoppable confidence. Her unflinchingly bold approach to life. And, of course, her over-the-top style. Cookie Lyon is the saucy leading lady in the hit TV show Empire…and we’re sooo obsessed with her fierce fashions.

While we may not be able to live Cookie’s lavish lifestyle, we can all Cookie-fy our wardrobe…for way less. Check out these 3 head-to-toe looks to channel your inner diva.

Look #1

Cookie hasn't meant an animal print she didn't love. And we ain't "Lyon". Put all those Boo Boo Kitties on alert with a sexy bodycon skirt and your highest stilettos. Top with a suede vest to add total tough-girl edge.

Look #2

Cookie’s style? Street meets runway. Cookie is a master at mixing a punch of glam with the everyday. Go for the bold with a faux fur jacket – guaranteed to make any outfit look rich. Bonus points if you wear a poppin’ bright color. Choose a pencil skirt with a longer hemline to balance an in-your-face graphic print top. Finish it off with some great heels worthy of hurling at Lucious’ head.

Look #3

Work? Dinner? Dancing? Cookie proves that any occasion is game on for some animal magnetism. Opt for a body-skimming dress to flaunt your shape. After all, “loose-fitting” is not in Cookie’s vocabulary. Then add your most incredible stilettos to make your legs go on for days.
