Angela Bassett was sharply suited for the 2023 BAFTA Tea Party this weekend.

While arriving for the event on Saturday at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, Bassett posed in a white Elie Saab suit. The Golden Globe-winning actress‘ spring 2023 ensemble featured a tailored blazer and trousers, each glamorously embellished with thin gold metallic circles and complementary embroidery. Styled by Jennifer Austin, Bassett’s outfit was layered over a simple white top and complete with a gold Waters Faith necklace and sparkling Alexis Bitter hoop earrings.

When it came to footwear, Bassett soared in a gleaming set of gold Giuseppe Zanotti mules. Her $895 GZ Aida style, crafted from mirrored gold fabric, included thick platforms with curved toe straps. Elevating the set were 5.9-inch heels, giving her a sky-high height boost that was both dynamic and slick.
