Angela Bassett looked dazzling in a head-turning sleeveless gown at Dolby Theatre.
The actress was pretty in purple at the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever premiere last week in Los Angeles. Angela donned a shiny purple dress for the occasion alongside fellow cast members and celebrities.
The 64-year-old looked incredible in the sparkling pleated number.
The Moschino dress featured a small train in the back and an open slit in the front. Angela paired the dress with glittery light purple heels that matched perfectly.
Angela had on unique silver swirl earrings and wore a swoop of light purple eyeshadow to match her outfit.
In a video Angela shared from the event, someone could be heard yelling, “strike a pose”, and Angela happily obliged.
The Academy Award nominee held her drink in one hand as she did a slow shimmy and shook her shoulders for the camera.

Angela credits clean eating for health
The Wakanda Queen admits that all the compliments she receives lead to some pressure to always look her very best.

The actress now raises awareness for the disease while trying to remain healthy herself.
Angela credits clean eating for her good health. The Wakanda star is a fan of the “everything in moderation” adage and often cooks for her family so she knows exactly how much salt is in their meals.
