‘Let Me Drive the Boat’: Taraji P. Henson Has Fans Gushing Over Her Effortless Summer Look on the Water

As summer begins to draw to a close, Taraji P. Henson continues to live her best and most effortlessly glamorous life.

The star of Fox’s “Empire” recently rocked a pair of super-colorful printed pants and a bright orange tank top as her wavy hair flowed in the wind. Sitting on a boat sailing around Chicago over the weekend, Henson let the breeze swirl around her as she rocked a pair of sunglasses.

“#SundayFunday #photocredit📸 @shine_sunnie #SummertimeChi 🙏🏾💋💋💋,’ she captioned the image uploaded to her Instagram page August 11.

Fans immediately gobbled up the post and began raving about the star’s beauty.

“Let me drive the boat 🥵🤤”

“See, I was minding my own business and here Taraji goes with the foolish fine-ness! SMH…Somebody pass me one of them ole Martin Luther King Baptist Church Fans! It’s getting hot in hurr!”


“Yassssssss DAMNIT‼‼‼‼‼YES‼‼‼😍😍🔥”

“Oh my, taraji”

“That Tattoo say it all ‘THE TRUTH’ laawwwddd!”

But Henson wasn’t alone on the outing. She was joined by her fiancé, former NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. He also shared excitement over the photo, posting it on his own Instagram page and appearing to remark on his soon-to-be wife’s unbelievable beauty by captioning it “WTF.”

The response Henson gained from fans Sunday is similar to the praise she received in July when she showed off her dyed natural tresses. The big, voluminous curls the actress put on display were enough to drive fans wild, begging for the “What Men Want” star to give her the secrets.

“Cookie u ain’t playing no games 🙌😂 #livinglegend.”


“Hair is gorgeous.”

Luckily for fans, Henson noted in her caption that she was gearing up to release a new hair care line that she credited for giving her the look she rocked that month.

“All naTUral and I f–kin LOVE IT!!! can’t WAIT to share my hair care system with you #TPHBeauty coming VERY SOON!!! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾💋💋💋,” Henson said of the photo.

As Henson looks after her hair, however, she’s also been gearing up to plan her impending wedding to Hayden — but she’s said she’s not rushing the process.

“I don’t have a date yet,” Henson told People magazine in January. “I’m trying for the summer. I have scripts coming in, you know — you got to strike while the iron is hot — and [Hayden] is patient.”

By now, however, it seems she may have landed on a day for the nuptials as she captioned a set of pics with Hayden on the boat to include a tell-tale date.

“Us on any given Sunday (in the summer in Chicago 😩😂) @kelvinhayden my baby for life #4/4/20 😘🙏🏾💋💋💋,” she wrote.
