Still stunning at 64! Angela Bassett goes makeup-free during vacation on the coast of Italy as she shows off her figure in a slip dress
Angela Bassett has proven age is just a number as she vacations in Italy.
The American Horror Story star, 64, looked gorgeous in a brown and white animal print dress this week.
The floor-length, tank dress hugged her curves as she enjoyed some sightseeing and shopping with friends in Portofino.
The How Stella Got Her Groove Back actress – who revealed she held Austin Butler’s hand as he lost the Oscar for Best Actor race – wore gold sandals and accessorized with a large cuff-style bracelet and a black handbag.
The 9-1-1 star wore her raven hair down and straight as she took in the seaside Italian town.

The Black Panther star kept her makeup fresh and natural. In one of the shots, she wore a stylish black straw hat.
The What’s Love Got To Do With It actress’ Italian vacation comes just days after it was announced that she would be one of four recipients of the honorary Academy Awards at the 14th Governors Awards in November.
The Waiting to Exhale star became the first person to be nominated for an Oscar for a role in a Marvel movie for her portrayal of Queen Ramonda in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
When she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in January she released a statement to CNN saying: ‘This morning is a little extra special in the Bassett-Vance household with news of my Oscar nomination.
‘What has drawn me to each of the women I’ve portrayed throughout my career is their strength, compassion, resilience and power.
‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s Queen Ramonda is a character that touched my spirit because she is a mother and a leader who must care for her grieving nation as much as she cares for her family in mourning.
‘Ramonda is a love letter that reflects and acknowledges what we women do every day.’
And in March just days before the Academy Awards she spoke to CBS, saying: ‘Queen Ramonda, for me, is just, at its core, a representation of the strong women that I’ve had in my life who’ve raised me, of the strong women I see, my love for them, my appreciation of them.’
Jamie Lee Curtis ultimately won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Everything Everywhere All At Once.

Bassett has been married to actor Courtney B. Vance, 63, since 1997.
The pair first met in college at the Yale School of Drama and reconnected romantically more than a decade later when they ran into each other in Los Angeles.
The couple shares twins, daughter Bronwyn and son Slater, whom they welcomed in January 2006 via surrogate.
The twins joined their parents on the red carpet and at the ceremony for the Academy Awards in March.
