Angela Bassett took flight for the African American Film Critics awards (AAFCA). The actress won the event’s Best Supporting Actress award for her role in Marvel’s “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”
Bassett hit the red carpet at the Beverly Wilshire hotel in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles with husband Courtney B. Vance on Wednesday, wearing a sharp white suit. The SAG Award-winning actress‘ ensemble featured a matching blazer and trousers, accentuated with a dramatic wide feathered shawl. Her attire was glamorously finished with thin diamond rings, sparkling statement drop earrings and a sculpted seashell-shaped clutch.
Vance was also dapperly dressed for the occasion, arriving with Bassett in a dark gray suit, black bow tie and fedora, paired with glossy black patent leather dress loafers.
When it came to shoes, Bassett finished her outfit with a pair of metallic gold heels. The “Waiting to Exhale” actress‘ style featured a peep-toe silhouette with smooth leather uppers, complete with small rounded toe openings. The gleaming style, adding a burst of shine to the Golden Globe-winning star’s outfit, was finished with heels likely totaling 3 to 4 inches in height for a sleekly formal finish.
