Just when you thought the cast of Empire could not be any hotter they pop up in Vogue Magazine! Yep the world’s most famous fashion publication apparently has Empire fever like the rest of the world. Lee Daniels joined “The Lyons;” (l-r) Bryshere “Yazz The Greatest” Gray, Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Trai Byers, and Jussie Smollett; who portray Hakeem, Lucious, Cookie, Andre, and Jamal Lyon, respectively. The cast looks amazing, as if they are at one seriously chic, but fun dinner party.
The cast’s appearance in Vogue is definitely a big deal as virtually no casts of any show are featured in such detail! Besides The Lyons, Naomi Campbell, Jourdan Dunn, and The Weekend appear in the spread as well. As you already know, Naomi portrays the recurring character of Camilla. However, The Weekend’s appearance may be dropping a clue that he too is on the long list of guest stars making appearances on the second season of the show.
The Vogue spread also appears as a bright spot in what has been somewhat of a torrid time for the show. Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, and Fox have all been sued by various companies, stars, and “personalities” who claim they either created the show or have certain characters based off of them. All we can do is shake our head and wait for what will be an epic second season. You can check out this spread in the September Issue of Vogue; and catch the second season premiere of Empire on September 23, 2015.
