Remember that one time Lifetime attempted to make an Aaliyah biopic? We do too, unfortunately. Because of that, we have to admit that we’re approaching the Whitney Houston one with caution, but based on what we’ve seen so far, they might’ve actually gotten this one right.
We’ll find out once it airs on the network later this month, but ahead of its air date was the premiere in Beverly Hills. On the red carpet, leading lady Yaya DaCosta cozied up to director Angela Bassett, and even though she isn’t in the movie, last night was all about her…abs.
Angela, 56, wore a menswear-inspired look, pairing a black blazer and trousers with a white top and python pumps, but then she unbuttoned her blazer, and BAM.
Don’t get us wrong, Yaya’s white and gold ensemble was cute and all, but, girl. Look at that body.
Whitney airs January 17 at 8:00 p.m. EST on Lifetime.
