Angela Bassett attended the 91st annual Academy Awards on Sunday wearing a vibrant custom one-shouldered fuchsia gown by Reem Acra. And everyone can’t stop talking about her.
And speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, her stylist Jennifer Austin said, “She’s somebody that can pull off drama. I loved the drama on the sleeve. This award season I’ve been wanting to play with different silhouettes.”
She continued, noting that no matter the cut, it should highlight Bassett’s arms. “Everybody knows Angela has amazing arms and she loves her arms, so anything that showcases that and heightens that,” Austin said, adding that she also knew the silhouette would help elongate the five-foot-three-inch star: “Most of the time I like to play with angles, because most people don’t know Angela is tiny.”
And most fans agree:
