Angela Bassett continued her press rounds Tuesday for London Is Falling, the film she is starring in with Morgan Freeman about a terrorist attack in London. Angela Bassett looked the opposite of 57 and SLAYED in an orange jumpsuit and beige heels. American Horror Story cast her correctly as a vampire because she.does.not.age. She looks fabulous!
Orange seems to be her color. She rocked the shade earlier this year to the 2016 Golden Globe Awards. Again, slaying like a sexy skittle in a Safiyya gown.

When asked about her definition of #BlackGirlMagic she sat even taller, smiled and said,
“Black girl magic is the attitude. The attidue you carry yourself with everyday. […] It stems from the inside. It’s this positive, effervescent, I can do anything, take charge, QUEEN, kind, attitude.”
YASSSSSSS, Ms. Bassett! She also added that she spreads her #BlackGirlMagic by being her best.

Angela has such a regal aura. Her confidence always shines and she’s one of the most talented actresses in Hollywood with a wide range of roles. When they create an Obama biopic, Angela Bassett should be first in line to play First Lady, Michelle Obama. Do you see those arms?! When discussing the first family, Ms. Bassett swooned, “They have just shown us the best of ourselves with such grace, intellect and above reproach.” The Obamas have definitely been exemplary images of blackness and a black family not only in America, but also on a global scale. The same way black families always had images of Martin Luther King, Jr. in the home, it has morphed into the same with Obama. She also joked that if she had the opportunity, she would send Obama out of the White House and into the world with, “one last house party!”
#TeamBeautiful would love to come to that! Angela Bassett, you are everything.
