Taraji P. Henson stunned in an Alexander Wang gown at the 2015 Emmy Awards on Sunday. The 45-year-old Empire star turned heads in the black gown with chain detail, a cutout at the chest, and a skirt with lace.

Henson nabbed her second Emmy nomination for the 67th annual ceremony, honored for her work on the breakout FOX drama. The actress was previously nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie at the 2011 Emmys for Taken from Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story.

Also presenting at the show, Henson is facing off against big stars including Claire Danes, Viola Davis, and Robin Wright for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series award.
