BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER Star Angela Bassett in Valentino at TIME’s 2023 Women of the Year Gala

Posted on March 09, 2023

Is “Angela Bassett did the thing” over? We don’t think a meme has ever run its course so quickly but it feels like that one lasted a matter of hours. Anyway, we ask the question because, well…



Angela Bassett did the thing. Again. This is way cuter than it has a right to be, but despite nearly everything about it (let’s just say several of the elements have gone past their T Lo expiration dates), we absolutely love this for her. That sash was a fantastic idea, although we don’t love that green with the pink. We’re glad she posed without the bag because the outfit is honestly much better without it. Voting for the Oscars had closed by this point, so you can look at this as a brief victory lap at the end of her campaigning period. She went a little Barbie to mark the occasion and we love that for her. She looks gorgeous.
