Amid her influential television and film career and a 2023 award show upset, to many, the Oscar distinction is long overdue. “Across her decades-long career, Angela Bassett has continued to deliver transcendent performances that set new standards in acting,” Academy representatives said in a June 2023 press statement.

Walking the red carpet before the ceremony, Angela dazzled in a nude dress from Dolce & Gabbana. The gown flowed with tulle, crystals, and sequins, complimenting the starlet’s fit body and curves in a mermaid-style silhouette. Angela’s dress was adorned in crystals from the neckline to the bottom hem in an unexpected ombre effect.

Said another way, “Let’s hear it for Angela’s dress!”

The “Black Panther” star accessorized her outfit with beautiful bling. She emphasized her waist with a bejeweled belt and topped off the look with three-tiered drop earrings and a stunning diamond ring.

The honorary Oscar winner’s makeup and hair were just as glamorous as her fabulous threads. Her tresses were styled in a curly bob that turned heads, and her coordinating makeup included a deep, grey, seductive, smokey-eye look.
