Not only does Kim Basinger have very similar features to Hayworth, but even the way stylists did her hair in the movie was more Hayworth than Lake. Aside from the fact Hayworth usually has red hair, her widow's peak was a little higher than you'd find in a peek-a-boo hairstyle, like the one used on Basinger.
Even at the end of the movie, when Bracken has left prostitution and her hair is clipped back, she looks more like Hayworth, especially from the film The Lady From Shanghai.
