SAG Awards 2023: BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER Star Angela Bassett in Giambattista Valli Couture

Posted on February 27, 2023

You have no idea how difficult it is to refrain from typing “AHNJULA BASSETT DID THE THING” every time we cover her now. If you read anything about Ms. Bassett in the next month where the phrase doesn’t appear, just know that the person who wrote it struggled mightily and you should take a moment to recognize their efforts. We, for our parts, are ashamed to have succumbed to our shallowest instincts. And speaking of shallow, let’s judge her dress!


It’s fun! It may be the best thing she’s worn all year! Her ass looks AMAZING! Sorry, but that last part needed to be said. A design like this doesn’t offer anything new or fresh, but it doesn’t have to. It’s a relatively classic style, the whole point of which is to embody the very concept of celebration in a garment. This is a party. This is a declaration of fabulousness. This is confidence. The hair is flawless. Those Judith Leiber clutches are incredibly gimmicky, but we don’t mind them generally. Here, however, it just sticks out like a sore thumb. Why sport a focus-pulling clutch when you’ve got a dress like that?
