Angela Bassett in Robert Rodriguez at the 2013 Hollywood Film Awards

Posted on October 24, 2013

Miss Angela is serving…

“American Horror Story” star Angela Bassett attends the 2013 Hollywood Film Awards in Beverly Hills, California in a Robert Rodriguez dress.

Butt. And she kindly requests that you kiss it.

Living for your hair, Miss Lady!

Sorry, we had to just shout that out. Bitch is ON FIRE lately. We honestly didn’t think she had it in her to rock the red carpet like this, but someone wisely realized that her time on American Horror Story was going to give her opportunities to show herself off and bless her heart, she took that and ran with it.

We like the dress quite a bit from the front, but we’re not in love with the back. But who cares? She looks amazing. We are bowing down.

  • I really don’t love this. I don’t think I even like it. I am prepared for your wrath.

    • Clueless_Jock

      Yes – doesn’t seem like the right length for her.

    • Vtg Fashion Library

      I concur. Looks like she should be handing out tissues at the mortuary.

    • Jessica Freeman

      If there is a corner to hide in, all the better. I’m with you.

    • Glam Dixie

      Agreed, the girls look sad, they need some lift and support in this badly.

    • Mismarker

      This is wholly unflattering. Any dress that makes your boobs look like tiny, sand filled water balloons is a no for me. Angie, you’re better than this.

    • notterriblybitter

      Yes, but are you prepared for her wrath? She can totally make you spend the rest of your life wearing crocs and baggy sweatpants. You guys are all really going to regret saying mean things about her outfit.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Ms. Bassett WILL make you pay for incurring her wrath. I like the dress-it’s not a WERQ for me, but she’s doing a good job of giving it life.

    • marlie

      It’s really unflattering in the bust.

  • gayle

    Gorgeous lady and yes the hair is fantastic!

  • jwatt85

    Angela proving that she slays at any age, looking damn fine and could still snatch a fine young man off a beach, honey.

    • carlaaxtman

      Girl has some GUNS, too.

    • Yes, but I would like to discourage her from trying to work the duck face. It’s beneath her, and her smile is so much more glorious.

  • SewingSiren

    That model is looking all sad now because she saw how Angela looks in her dress.

  • Janet B

    She’s having a moment.

  • epenthesis

    She looks great, but is that really a red carpet look?

    • Imasewsure

      I think it’s a more of a cocktail party type event. Most of the ladystars we’ve seen have been going for this type of look rather than a full on RC get up

    • Rhonda Shore

      yes it is.

  • Day-Um.
    That is all.

  • mjude

    I am bowing down. angela “davis” vibe

  • Le_Sigh

    Damn. She does NOT age. Love her sass-tastic expression in the last shot. “Yes I look this good! And?”

  • Tatiana Luján

    Love the hair and the shoes. I don’t particularly like the dress, but I bet she looked stunning in person.
    The lipstick is terrible, but who cares.

  • teensmom99

    I’m sorry, I can’t hear you. I’m all the way down here, bowing.

  • veriance

    I love the hair and that ass, but her breasts, did someone deflate them? Where did they go?

    • sagecreek

      She’s not standing up straight. And yes, I realize if I say that one more time, I’m likely to get banned.

      She does look great, though.

    • NoveltyRocker

      Don’t think they’re properly supported. Or maybe the dress doesn’t fit right up top.

  • Sobaika

    My reaction can be summed up thusly:


  • MilaXX

    Courtney B. Vance is a lucky guy. Angela just walked out on that red carpet and said, “BAM! How ya’ like me now?”

    • Catiline

      I love them! Courtney ended up being one of my favorite people on that show Flash Forward.

      • Rand Ortega

        I was so surprised I got hooked on that show. Gabrielle Union & John Cho made the HOTTEST couple! I even tolerated the King of the Douches, Seth McFarlane, I so enjoyed it.

    • SpillinTea

      As Larry Fishburne said and I stay quoting: “Angie B is a baddd muthaf***a!”

  • tereliz

    Love the hair and face, but her lack of bra means she’s not standing as confidently as she could be. It shows.

  • LipstickForPigs

    DAT ASS. I currently do about eleventy billion squats a day in hopes of an ass like that. When it finally happens, I’m pretty sure my face will wear an expression just like hers.

    • Sobaika

      Squats! And if you’re into yoga, Chair pose and Locust pose. I, too, am on the quest of the Ass.

    • Chaiaiai

      As a woman with an ass approaching (but never quite reaching, like the X axis of asses) an ass like Miss Angela’s here, just be careful. You’ll need to sleep with a pillow under your knees for life or sleep on your side.

      On topic, that lipstick is the answer to everything wrong with this week. PREACH.

      • tinyredlocks

        I have dat ass. And yes, I sleep on my side or stomach. Sleeping on your back is not an option when you are bootylicious….

    • Rand Ortega

      If I ever achieve DAT ASS, my expression will be 1 of relief. Because I can finally stop thinking there’s someone behind me.

    • CurbGirl

      I can only dream…no amount of exercise added to industrial strength spanx would give me that ass. Brava to her for rocking her assets, smile included.

    • SportifLateBoomer

      I hear that. I’m pretty darn close to having dat ass and it is basically due to all the squats I do. All the variations. All the sets It’s all worth it to fill out a dress or jeans in a certain way. I own my extreme vanity. And my age, which is ~Angela’s, when it’s even harder to maintain it all.

  • decormaven

    The dress not be my pick for her, but she’s rocking it with confidence. She is indeed having a moment, and for that, I am glad.

  • Imasewsure

    I like the dress on her. It’s fun but still covered which is nice (and seasonal, yeah). LOVE LOVE the hair but not loving her makeup at all

  • ashtangajunkie

    Such a smokin’ bod and I love that hair.

  • NOLA_gal

    LOVE her hair. Makes my headful of limp noodles jealous!

    • Brookwater

      Don’t like what you have…buy you some! Miss Angela bought that! 🙂

  • Diego!

    Amazing indeed! She is rocking that curly hair! 😀

  • boweryboy

    Not really feeling the outfit itself, but from the neck up she’s serving it up on a sizzling hot platter.

  • I have not seen her in a single hair style that she could not rock. She’s more gifted than Gary Oldman or Paul McGann.

  • Theresa

    She’s got such a “oh, this ol’ thing?” face in some of these shots, she knows how good she looks.

  • jilly_d

    That is some truly fantastic hair, but I’m sorry to say this dress makes me sad.

  • SugarSnap108

    When is this woman NOT serving? Really, I don’t even like this dress. But I’m bowing down.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour


  • Rand Ortega

    Not exactly loving the dress, but she sure is serving the shit out the hotness!
    Snaps, Gurl!
    “That booty! Smack it up, flip it, rub it down! Oh, no!”

  • carpediva

    So I can’t watch AHS because it’s scary and I am a mega weenie. But I am SO glad it exists as it’s brought the fabulous Ms. Bassett back front & center! LOVE huh.

  • KayEmWhy

    Sorry, I don’t like this look at all and the lipstick is off.

  • IMNAngryLiberal

    My daughter and I have a stock comment whenever we see any women between the ages of 30 and 80 in strong & edgy roles — that is “They should have gone with Angela Bassett.” We also say “Personally, I blame Netflix” for any other ills of the world (we actually love Netflix, but for a while there they were being blamed in the press and in social media for the downfall of Western Civilization)…..but I digress. Angela Bassett has ALWAYS, ALWAYS been on fire in my book and I’m delighted to see her out there showing the world….and she SO should have been Storm in X-Men not that I’m still bitter about that.

    • sweetestsith

      I COMPLETELY agree. She would have KILLED it as Storm. Alas!

      Super hero movies (these days for sure, but I know nothing about the genre before x-men) seem to have a problem with casting girls. The mens parts tend to be very very carefully choosen, but they fill the sexy female role with whoever is considered hottest at the moment, not whoever would be most awesome AND hot. Peet peeve.

      Back to Angela though, she looks amazing from the back, but a bit limp from the front. A bit of support would have been nice.

    • DB Ruberto

      Thirded. I (as a X-man comic book nerd from the way-back) was so pissed I didn’t see the movie for a whole month when it came out.

  • GTrain

    I don’t love it

  • Jaeda Laurez

    I love it! Her skin regimen must involve unicorn tears and cocoa butter.

  • GillianHolroyd

    Not a fan of the hair, it detracts from her cheekbones.

  • Noah

    Is there ever a time Angela Bassett ISN’T serving?

  • ModernDowager

    She’s the coolest. She was in a silly little commercial I did back in 1990 before she was famous. She was really lovely and I got to keep the outfit she wore in the commercial. It was one of my favorites for years.

  • AvaLehra

    I’ve loved her since End of Days, so she can do no wrong in my eyes. FIERCE!

  • Fred Vaughn

    High heat!!

  • French_Swede

    WOW! Just WOW!

    She’s channeling Tina Turner here, and I LOVE IT!

    • pop_top

      YES. THIS.

  • Trickytrisha

    Pure warrior woman. I’m in awe.

  • BookManFilm

    55 years old. I’ll leave that laying there for everyone to think about.

  • marlie

    I. Love. Her. Hair. GORGEOUS. The dress isn’t the most flattering thing in the world, but that hair!

  • rondele

    Ms. Bassett always looks fierce, but this dress is more of the funeral, even with that back on it. When she slouches, as she seems to be in the first pics, it ruins the line of the dress. That leather? line around the neckline makes the dress look cheap to me. Her hair is lovely and makeup is great. The ankle straps on the shoes may not have been the best choice.

  • Pterodactyl111

    Her hair is KILLAH.

  • OpinionatedMtnGirl

    I hate that lipstick color. Love every thing else!

  • e jerry powell

    She gon’ dance the Yanvalou in that outfit and invoke every single god!

  • pdquick

    Oh, YES, huntie!!

  • webslice33

    she’s gorgeous..super love her on AHS!

  • Renaissance_Man_ATL

    Serving Tina Turner realness. Again.

  • Uncle Spike

    Cray cray. Honey, love ya, but that Donna Summer fro has got to go.

  • Jacob Bowen

    Dat ass.

  • Lily-Rygh

    FLOVE her hair! And that smile can melt ice.

  • Nyltiak

    I sat in front of her at a movie last night. She is just as flawless in person. Amazing.
