After accepting her star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, Taraji P. Henson is back on the east coast to make more press stops for her uocming comedy, What Men Want.

The 48-year-old actress hit the carpet for the film's NYC premiere held at the Crosby Street Hotel last night in a black long-sleeved L'Agence dress. FAB, per usual.

Produced by Will Packer (Girl's Trip) and directed by Adam Shankman, the Oscar nominated actress plays a sports agent in a male-dominated industry where she has to fight her way up the ladder to prove she's better the boys. She gains an unexpected edge over them when she develops the ability to hear men's thoughts after drinking a tea that was given to her by a psychic (played by Erykah Badu).

Catching up with his "sister" Taraji on the carpet, What Men Want actor Tracy Morgan and his heavy gold chains were in the mix.
