Are You Feeling Taraji's Weave-Free Photo Shoot?
Taraji: "I feel naked. Like a plucked chicken."
As if you needed another reason to love Cookie. Taraji Henson rocked her natural hair for a high-fashion photo shoot recently, and the results are absolutely stunning, not to mention totally inspirational.
Taraji was actually supposed to wear a wig for CR Fashion Book photo shoot, but when her silk scarf slipped off and photographer Bruce Webber caught sight of her cornrows, he was inspired to go in a different direction, telling Taraji "We'll shoot your hair just like that, it's beautiful."
Taraji shared two of the photos on her Instagram page, one with the caption "As women we put sooooo much emphasis on our hair!!! As if hair defines beauty?! I am always so grateful for women who are FREE AND BOLD enough to cut it ALL off." Preach, Taraji!
The rest of the photos - and the revealing essay Taraji wrote to accompany them - are available to view on CR Fashion Book's website.
