She entered 2015 as a leading lady in Fox’s music-industry drama series Empire. She’s taken by storm the world with her character Cookie Lyon, and truth be told, people just can’t get enough of Taraji P. Henson.

The 44-year-old actress and singer is set to continue her successful year on Saturday Night Live, where she’ll be a guest host on April 11.

With a shining trajectory that began in television and film in the late ’90s, we don’t doubt that 2015 is Henson’s best year yet. Don’t believe us? Let her dazzling Instagram photos do all the talking.
