WSVN — Cookie’s back, and she’s not just bringing the music. "Empire" is heating things with with its Season 2 style. The stars were looking the part during the premiere Wednesday night. We’re raiding closets as "Empire" strikes back.

Cindy Gold (as Dominique Prado): "Love your pumps. They’re fab."

Taraji P. Henson (as Cookie Lyon) "Oh, thank you, sister girl."

A little behind-the-scenes love for some big dollar fashions. Shooting an episode of "Empire" could easily be mistaken for a cover shoot of Vogue.

Ta’Rhonda James: "The fashion is so iconic, like Cookie’s furs, Hakeem’s big dope chains, and now you see people in the street trying to mimic what some of the characters wear."

Lee Daniels: "The fashion on ‘Empire’ is bombastic. It is a statement in itself. It is as important as the acting."

"Empire’s" creator, Lee Daniels, always planned for the show to dress for success, and his stars are loving it.

Kaitlin Doubleday: "I think one of the things that makes fashion so huge on this show is, they’re a billionaire family. They can afford whatever they want. What would someone wear if they could wear anything and if every designer was willing to give them whatever they wanted?"

And the designers are lining up! We raided Cookie’s closet and were in fashion heaven! Check out this Alexander McQueen floral dress, a Jimmy Choo clutch, and oh, look at these Christian Louboutins.

Bryshere Y. Gray (as Hakeem Lyon): "You know you gotta switch up your style sometime, you know what I’m saying?"

Taraji P. Henson (as Cookie Lyon): "Yes, I do."

It’s not only the ladies who are being dressed to the nines. Bryshere Y. Gray, who plays Hakeem, also loves being part of the fashion empire.

Bryshere Y. Gray: "I’m very excited. I love the style, so I can’t wait to see how the season will turn out."

Chris Rock: "Sit down, Lucious."

That guy in orange is Chris Rock, and he posted this behind-the-scenes vid of his first day on set.

Chris Rock: "My first day was incredible, worked with the great Terrance Howard."

Chris just one of the many A-listers becoming part of the "Empire." In two weeks, Mr. 305 will play himself on the show.

This season, you can also look for Mariah Carey in a top-secret role. Plus: Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Lenny Kravitz, and the return of Naomi Campbell as Camilla Marks.

Taraji P. Henson (as Cookie Lyon): "So, Yoko Ono wants to play on the song, too. Well, what can you do Yoko? Can you play the tambourine?"

Naomi Campbell (as Camilla Marks): "Don’t mess with me, Cookie. I’m not one of your jailbird mates, OK?"

And it seems like that is what has Lee Daniels most excited about.

Lee Daniels: "You know what’s so great about those women? Taraji will shoot you."

Taraji P. Henson (as Cookie Lyon): "You need to stay away from my son."

Lee Daniels: "Naomi will cut you."

Naomi Campbell (as Camilla Marks): "At least I got the Junior."

Lee Daniels: "And that’s a fight that I wanna see. I wanna see bloodshed. I wanna see weave hair flying in the air."
