Does it really matter what she was wearing when the hair is doing all the work? This hair could save any dress. It may even have been able to save Lady Gaga’s hideous Golden Globes dress. Angela Bassett’s dress, if you care, for the Critics’ Choice Awards was Jenny Packham. Like I said, I don’t think it matters. 

This. HAIR. 

I read somewhere that she calls it her “lion” hair. But it’s not just the length and the volume here. It’s the lack of volume on the top that’s giving it an extra gear. Check out those finger-waves around the part, creating a sort of built-in headband effect. I now desperately want to try this, not that the final result will even come close. Because, Jesus, it’s also her face. Please take a moment today, every day, to appreciate her face:
