Angela Bassett wowed on the red carpet with a purple ensemble.
Bassett is nominated for best supporting actress for her role as Queen Ramonda in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”
In an interview with E!’s Laverne Cox, Bassett said she was wearing Moschino by Jeremy Scott. The color was purposeful for the woman who played the Queen of Wakanda.
“It’s royal purple,” Bassett said. “The color of royalty, bringing it to the carpet.”
She also reflected on how this awards season feels compared to 30 years ago, when she was nominated for her role as Tina Turner in “What’s Love Got to Do With It?”
“Love and support compounded,” she said. “Compounded, compounded, compounded. I’ve felt it with me this entire journey. It’s been wonderful.”
