“Empire” continued to captivate us with this week’s episode. With Camilla Marks-Whiteman (Naomi Campbell) in the top position after a stealth takeover of the record label, her lover, Hakeem Lyon (Bryshere Y. Gray), is enjoying unprecedented power. But it remains to be seen whether he’ll use it for good.

In the beginning of the episode, it certainly doesn’t look that way. Hakeem opts to have his face superimposed onto the Empire logo. For one of his most ego-centric moments, Hakeem fittingly wore a top from Yeezy Season 3. Empire’s costume designer and stylist, Paolo Nieddu, is clearly a fan of Kanye West‘s clothing line for Adidas. Last season, he dressed Tiana Brown (Serayah McNeill) in a pant-less rehearsal look straight from the Yeezy Season 2 runway.

Get Hakeem’s look: Yeezy top, Naked and Famous jeans, Yeezy sneakers, a Movado watch and Macys earrings.

Despite Empire’s uncertain future, Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) managed to remain calm and composed throughout most of the episode. Clearly, she had a plan in motion. The Lyon matriarch continued her stellar run of office wear with a flashy twist in a ruffle blouse inspired by measuring tape. A design this ingenious and kitschy could only be the work of Jeremy Scott for Moschino.

Naturally, the Twittersphere had a lot to say about Cookie’s bold look, with comments ranging from praise to utter confusion:

Get Cookie’s look: Moschino blouse, Rag & Bone jeans, Topshop boots, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Noir Jewelry earrings and Charlotte Russe rings.

Hakeem is really settling into his role as a rap superstar, and a flashy designer wardrobe comes along with that. Like many rappers in real life, Hakeem is fond of Givenchy, specifically the designer’s popular Rottweiler-themed pieces.

He performed a tribute to his brother Andre Lyon (Trai Byers) wearing a sweater with the motif, paired with jeans and his signature designer watch.

Get Hakeem’s look: Givenchy sweater, Acne Studios jeans, Apple watch, Monsieur earrings and Yeezy sneakers.
