Get statement straps like Taraji in her Bibhu Mohapatra dress
Taraji P. Henson made a style statement for her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, wearing a catwalk creation by Bibhu Mohapatra.
Hailing from the Spring/Summer '16 collection, this unique dress is a real showstopper of a piece. From the interesting distressed print, to the statement leather straps, we just can't stop looking at it!
Indian designer Bibhu Mohapatra is known for his use of textures and fabric, with this particular collection inspired by '30s trailblazer journalist Annemarie Schwarzenbach and her love of Bauhaus art.
He's also garnered a solid base of celebrity fans, including Jennifer Lopez, Lupita Nyong’o, Kareena Kapoor Khan, and even Michelle Obama.
Taraji is the latest star to champion the talented designer and it's definitely left us feeling inspired. Although we can't shop her exact design, there's some great lookalike styles in our edit below from Ark &Co, Sistaglam, French Connection and Missguided that are perfect for giving a nod to this statement dress.
The star wore a black and white dress that went to the knees.
The top part was nearly R-rated however as it had a cage style that showed plenty of her generous cleavage for all to see.

Earlier in the day she sat down with Good Day New York.
The 46-year-old actress was asked about one of the lines in the memoir, 'The joy of living in your own truth.'
The actress pointed to her Truth tattoo and said: 'You can't be afraid of your past, or ashamed about it, because that's what makes you who you are today. Life isn't easy. As humans we're all beautifully flawed. No human is perfect.'

The inspiring book is a story about family, friends and the hustle required to make it from DC to Hollywood.

She also opens up about her experiences as a single mother to her teenage son Marcel Johnson, something she views as a gift.
