Nonetheless, why exactly did Allure want to choose Bassett for their second annual End of Anti-Aging edition? The journal reveals why Angela was an obvious selection by saying,
“Stop asking Angela Bassett why she looks ‘so young’ for her age. In our ‘End of Anti-Aging issue, we spoke to the actress about growing older; and being a woman of color in an unforgiving culture- and how that all is changing.
Angela Bassett doesn’t follow the rules, she makes them. That’s why she was the perfect choice to front our ‘End of Anti-Aging issue. Last year, we decided to make some new rules ourselves; banning the term ‘anti-aging’ from Allure. In 2018, we’re continuing the conversation to better recognize that growing older is beautiful.
[Also] from Reva Styles in ‘Boyz in the Hood’ to Marie Laveau in ‘American Horror Story’ Angela Bassett walks us through her most iconic onscreen beauty looks.”

Another cool aspect of Angela’s cover and editorial is that was shot with the Google Pixel 3. Yes, Google’s latest phone drop (October 9, 2018- $799) is the piece of photography equipment used to showcase all that is Angela Bassett. Once more proving just how beautiful Angela is… all the woman needs is a measly phone camera. Goals.
Nevertheless, what advice does Angela have for looking your best as the years tick by? Get your tablets and pens ready y’all because Bassett is giving the formula. Allure’s Digital Editorial Director, Kelly Bales, recently shared the beauty intel by stating,
“As a kid watching ‘Waiting to Exhale’ I remember falling in love with the iconic strength and beauty of Angela Bassett. Her acting brought me to tears and when she lights that cigarette with the burning trash of her cheating husband’s stuff I STILL scream.
What an honor to have her on our second End of Anti-Aging issue. I leave you with advice she gives in our cover profile. ’60 is the new 40, or 70 is the new 50. It keeps getting pushed. But you have to keep the stress down and the attitude hot.”
