There are perfectly good celebrity style moments, and then there are the looks that really stick with you, the ones you try desperately to recreate at home. In ‘Great Outfits in Fashion History,’ Fashionista editors are revisiting their all-time favorite lewks.

Taraji P. Henson‘s an unsung style hero of the early 2000s — a look back at her fashion track record shows she had a firm grasp on the trends of that era.

In 2005, Henson made her Oscars debut, and though she wasn’t up for any awards — her film “Hustle & Flow” would receive two nominations the following year — she still let her presence be known on the red carpet. She stunned in a sultry orange bias-cut slip dress featuring an extreme deep-V neckline and small brooch embellishment. The only accessories were long drop earrings and a golden shawl. Her quintessential Y2K updo and sheer lip gloss tied the whole ensemble together.
