Angela Bassett In Byron Lars - 2014 Film Independent Filmmaker Grant And Spirit Awards Nominees Brunch

Angela Bassett joined Melonie Diaz, Lupita Nyong’o and Emily Mortimer for the 2014 Film Independent Filmmaker Grant And Spirit Awards nominees’ brunch held at BOA Steakhouse on Saturday (January 11) in West Hollywood, California.

The beautiful actress wore a Byron Lars black-and-gold jacquard leaf-print dress with a sheer yoke accented with a gold bow belt, styled with black platform pumps and gold jewels.

There is a part of me that feels like this dress is too twee for Angela. Perhaps it would’ve worked better for me in a pencil silhouette.

Plus the pumps are too heavy for the look and she shouldn’t have worn the brown cami. If she had to wear the lining, it should’ve been black to blend better with black velvet placket of the dress.
