Cookie Lyon’s fur collection is hard to compete with. The diva’s massive collection includes unique purple pieces along with other fabulous colors. Cookie’s furs are just about the only thing that can keep up with her personality.
Cookie sported an all-white fur as she was released from prison in the show’s first episode. While she has stopped wearing most of the animal print she once stomped around in, Empire’s leading lady has not given up the fur coats that she has worn throughout the show’s first two seasons.

Many of the furs Taraji P. Henson has worn on the show are borrowed from costume designer Rita McGhee’s mother in law, Janet Bailey. Bailey was married to Earth, Wind & Fire’s Philip Bailey. Sporting a dominant fur coat can clash with the personalities of some characters yet it compliments Cookie’s personality perfectly.
Cookie can be warming when it comes to her sons. She’s the security blanket they didn’t have for 17 years. She can also be fierce, similar to some of her most fabulous furs we’ve seen her in. Lucious is one of the people with the ability to make Cookie show her fierce side.
Season 3 will be here on September 21 and we’re sure we’ll see Cookie in more beautiful furs. Until then, enjoy her top 10 furs from the show’s first two seasons:
