The Emmy-winning actress looked in a luxe white jacket. The outerwear had a deep V-neckline and ruffle detailing near the lapels. Other standout features include a series of buttons near the cuffs and basque hem. She paired her top with sleek leather leggings.
To add more glamor to her look, the “Black Panther” star accessorized with earrings, a dainty necklace and a square-embellished clutch. Bassett parted her hair down the middle and let her long, shiny locks cascade down her back. She sealed the deal with soft glam and her glossy, neutral pout. As for shoes, she amped up her ensemble with platform sandals. The high heels featured a crossover and wrapped strap around the ankle for extra support and comfort.
Platform pumps feature a raised sole and usually a high heel of 4 inches or more. The platform construction helps compensate for heel height, allowing more height than a traditional pump without any added discomfort.
Bassett is known for bringing the pizzazz on and off the red carpet. The “9-1-1” alum has an affinity for bold hues, monochromatic moments, sophisticated classics and printed pantsuits. As for footwear, she will likely complete her wardrobe with pointed pumps, a peep toe silhouette, block heel sandals and high heels.
