Angela Bassett


As we enter into the weekend, if you need some encouragement not to throw all of your hard work in the toilet so you can be at the bar or go overboard at brunch, we’d recommend that you take a look at 59-year-old Angela Bassett.

The star, who has appeared on three different event carpets this week, turned heads on each one. But the look that had people talking is the high-waisted pants and crop top she wore to the A Wrinkle in Time premiere in L.A. Her stylist, Jennifer Austin, said that from time to time, they like to put her muscles on display, because when you’ve got it, flaunt it.

“Angela is a beautiful, smart, elegant and most importantly confident woman with a youthful spirit,” Austin said to PEOPLE. “She embodies those things at all times and she works hard to keep herself together, so every now and then we like show it off.”

And show it off she did. But even when Bassett covers up her tight midsection, she is still showing off thanks to her toned arms. She let the guns out in a sleek white number at the Essence Women in Hollywood event:
