I want to be Angela Bassett when I grow up — I mean, who doesn’t? Whenever I see the Black Panther actor, I’m just in utter awe of her beauty and talent, and I only hope I can look half as good as she does when I reach her age (64!). So, it’s probably not shocking to find out that I nearly fell to my knees when I saw her recent straight hairstyle.
She was spotted with her long hair at the opening night of A Transparent Musical in Los Angeles on May 31. Basset was clearly trying to keep it simple with her loose waves and minimal makeup, but there will never be anything simple about the Angela Bassett.
Her medium-length hair fell in big loose waves that cascaded towards her chest. This hair might have been straight, but it was not a silky, pin-straight style. Instead, her hair had a nice kinky texture to it.
It’s honestly hard to tell if she’s wearing a full face of makeup or not. Her skin was glowing so brightly, I almost refuse to believe it was not a highlighter providing the shine, but it could have just been the result of Bassett’s inner glow. A pinkish gloss coated her lips. It also looked as if her lips were lined with a deeper berry color for an ombré-esque effect. (And look at that smirk. She knows what she’s doing to me.)
