Bassett's colourful wardrobe is courtesy of stylist Jennifer Austin, whose choice of yellow fringe Naeem Khan jumpsuit for the Black Panther premiere in January made her one of the best dressed women of the year.

"Angela is the essence of a beautiful, confident, sexy woman with a fun and youthful spirit so I make sure her wardrobe reflects that! My goal with Angela is to change people’s perceptions of what a 59-year-old woman should wear," Austin told People.

"Angela works hard to stay in shape and I want to celebrate that. I push those fashion lines with her and she trusts me and my eye to do just that."

Meanwhile the American Horror Story star said she's excited to see an increasingly diversified Hollywood, with increased representation across the film industry.

"I guess it is, and it’s been a concerted effort to do that … Bringing in new, fresh faces, voices, eyes that really make the films and [members who] go out and … actually see a breadth of range of the films," she said.
