Allie is a fashion-obsessed news junkie who has worked in all areas of media from print to digital to broadcast. Her love of entertainment, gossip and culture is rivaled only by her passion for women's rights, African American history and social justice. On the rare occasion that she's not working, you can find her stalking her favorite fashion blogs, scouting the best coffee shops in New York City, indulging in reality television or shopping the latest shoe trends. @alliemcgev
Seriously, can I just have a tiny baggie of the good genes Angela Bassett was blessed with? A teaspoon? Perhaps a sliver? Because man, even just a fraction of it is more than most people are given in a lifetime. She is the living poster-child of “Black don’t crack.” And that swag suggests she knows it too.
Angela attended the BAFTAs this weekend and basically out-shined every other woman on the carpet in this stunning pink gown from designer Galia Lahav. And she did so at the age of 57, folks.

Just look at that flawless brown skin. At those beautiful, strong curves. That smile. She is just perfection.
