Empire and The Mindy Project Premiere Red Carpet Highlights

13 Sep

New York Fashion Week, Creative Arts Emmys, film festivals galore and fall TV premieres continue this weekend as the busy September calendar produces plenty of red carpet moments to talk about. Both Empire and The Mindy Project had their premieres this weekend with both showing off stylish outfits from beyond the screen.

Empire Season 2 Teaser: Free the Lyons

23 Jul

The power dynamics and alliances are forever shifting on Empire; the number of schemes that went down during its first year might even make Blair Waldorf stop for a second. The new season 2 teaser suggests it will be just as intense when the show returns Wednesday, September 23 as the looks between characters intensify. Defiant poses and walking with purpose are also on the cards with Cookie’s attire hitting all new highs.

Empire Season 2Cookie is not the one who is currently incarcerated (aside from whatever is going on in the scene above) and the teaser shows a #FreeLucious concert with Jamal taking center stage in this brief glimpse – will Hakeem appear on stage to support his father?

One thing Hakeem has in the opening strut is an IO Hawk – kind of like a hands free Segway – and it is such a random/perfect detail to show their indulgent lifestyle. I saw someone using one of these a couple of weeks ago and I had so many questions such as a general ‘Why?’ And how do you make it stop?

Anyway here is Terrence Howard trying one out onset courtesy of Kaitlin Doubleday’s Instagram:

I want one!!!!! @jussiesmollett
