Angela Bassett does not age. From Waiting To Exhale to What’s Love Got To Do With It she is the epitome of #blackgirlmagic
She’s been around forever but I’m still shocked to realize she is now 59 years old.
Nevertheless she looked stunning as she arrived at the Creative Arts Emmys in Los Angeles on Sunday.
The much loved actress turned heads in a scarlet red gown that had a thigh-high slit at the front and a small train.
The sleeveless dress also had a one diagonal strap across the shoulder.
Angela finished the look with a pair of towering shiny silver heels with platform soles.
The mom-of-two accessorized with a small white clutch and wore her sleek short bobbed hair in a center parting.
The Oscar-nominee attended the event with her actor husband Courtney B. Vance, whom she wed in 1997.
Courtney – who won an Emmy playing Johnnie Cochran in the highly acclaimed The People Vs O.J Simpson: American Crime Story – looked dapper in a dark gray suit and black tie.
Angela was one of the celebrity presenters at the awards show that recognizes artistic and technical achievement.
Angela has been busy lately filming Mission: Impossible 6 with Tom Cruise.
She plays the CIA director in the latest installment in the action franchise.
Production was halted after Cruise injured himself doing a stunt in London last month.
The movie will also star The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby, Superman star Henry Cavill and SNL alum Alec Baldwin.
