True to state, Tina looked stately in black pants paired with black blazers. She completed the look with chic lace and sequin gloves.

She approves!

Speaking about the portrayal of her life with BBC, she said:

Well first of all, it's difficult to see someone else do what we did for 40 years. I'm a perfectionist, so I look a little bit critically.

She went on to praise Adrienne Warren, who played her character in the production.

Warren is known for her work in Dreamgirls, Bring It On: The Musical and Netflix's Orange is the New Black.

Well done to the cast and crew.
