Taraji P. Henson Backs Out of Met Gala to Attend John Singleton’s Funeral

Taraji P. Henson skipped the Met Gala in honor of her friend and mentor, John Singleton, who started Henson’s career giving her starring role in 2005’s Hustle and Flow.

Henson was supposed to be paired with Vera Wang for the fashion event, according to a source, “they had an epic look planned.”

Wang supported Henson’s decision to attend Singleton’s funeral, the small intimate ceremony was held for Singleton’s close family and friends on Monday, a larger public memorial will happen at a later date.

If you could have any designer make an outfit for you, who would you commission for the look?
