At first glance, the 56-year-old looked quite conservative in a subdued pantsuit, but of course there was more to the story.

Bassett rounded out her outfit with a pair of sky-high snake-print pumps.

Yaya DaCosta, who stars at Whitney Houston, looked just as hot in a white satin ensemble that revealed her midsection.
