GRACING THE OSCARS
Bassett reinforced her presence as one of Hollywood's finest at the 93rd Academy Awards, appearing in a statement-making gown, and she looked stunning.
The 62-year-old actress wore a custom red Alberta Ferretti gown with full-draped organza sleeves, a high slit, and a long train, which she teamed with Christian Louboutin heels, a Judith Leiber clutch, a Chopard bracelet, and a ring for her presenting duties.

Shortly after the post was shared, her die-hard fans ensured that it was decorated by sweet comments from them that would surely leave her wowed. Some followers remarked that the presenter looked like a queen, while others noted that she was easily amongst the best dressed of the night.
Basset has been one of the standout figures of this year's awards season. Her sense of fashion has been at an all-time high, and her fans are wondering what the secret to her ageless beauty is.
"IN MEMORIAM" SEGMENT
During the awards night, before the "In Memoriam" segment, Bassett honored the lives of the millions of people who died of COVID-19 and violence in 2020.
She paid tribute to the artists who used their craft to help bring peace to the world during a time when grief, pain, and fear stood as the uniting factor for everyone.
A slide was dedicated to the late actor Chadwick Boseman, who was also nominated for Best Actor for his role in "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom."
Stars like Cicely Tyson, Cloris Leachman, Max Von Sydow, Joel Schumacher, Olivia de Havilland, Christopher Plummer, Lynn Shelton, Diana Rigg, Jerry Stiller, DMX, and many others were also remembered for their contribution to entertainment.
GOOD COP MOM
Aside from being a raving beauty, Basset is also a doting mom to her 15-year-old twins Bronwyn and Slater, who she shares with her husband, Courtney B. Vance.
She recently spoke of her parenting skills and revealed that she's a good cop when it comes to how she and her husband parent their kids.
Even though she is the one who plays the good cop role, Bassett's kids do well not to get on her bad side. Either way, everyone knows how much of a sweet mom the star is.
