the change in lucious’ look has not gone unnoticed

Aside of the general nighttime soapiness of each scene, one thing that stood out with Empire‘s first episode was Lucious’ (Terrance Howard) look. Specifically, Lucious’ perfectly coifed hair and ability to pull off satin scarves effortlessly.

Maybe the change was accidental. Maybe it was supposed to go unnoticed. Maybe it’s symbolic and denotes a shift in character development that occurred after the first episode. The most likely reason for the change? The producers simply realized that what worked for the pilot just wasn’t a good fit moving forward.

Still, it’s hard to not look at the “new” Lucious and miss the man that came before:

Although the pompadour and linens seemed slightly out of place for a show that’s otherwise very modern, we’ll miss pilot-episode Lucious and hope for a glimpse of him next season.
