A woman that mysteriously seems to get more beautiful with age, Halle Berry is exactly one year shy of her 50th birthday today!
The Academy Award Winner is generally thought of as always looking flawless, which is true, but whilst doing the research for this piece, we found a few questionable sartorial choices. Nevertheless, her beauty is always on point.
We’ve gathered for you her Top 5 best red carpet looks. Here is our list:
05. Vanity Fair Oscar Party (2009)
This gorgeous black and gold Marchesa gown looks classic and elegant on Halle. The rushing on the skirt creates movement in the front and the floral appliqué on the corset is very beautifully detailed.
04. Academy Awards (2002)
This is the dress she was wearing when she won her Oscar for Monster’s Ball, bound to be the most famous dress she ever worn. It was probably the first time many of us heard the name Elie Saab, but it wouldn’t be the last! The silk burgundy skirt and the mesh top with floral embroidery immediately spawned countless imitations, we’ve even heard of one instance where a high school senior had the dress copied as her graduation gown!
03. Academy Awards (2011)
The stunning strapless gold Marchesa gown made Halle appear to be walking on a cloud. She looked radiant wearing it! The corset is encrusted with crystals and the organza skirt has silk tulle ruffles. She made all the best dressed lists!
02. Academy Awards (2003)
This is perhaps a controversial choice, we prefer this Elie Saab gown to the one she wore when she won Best Actress. It fits her like a gloves and manages to look incredibly chic and very exotic at the same time. We love the single strap!
01. Academy Awards (2013)
For some unknown reason, some fashion critics hated this Versace dress. It managed to make a lot of Worst Dressed list that year, but there’s a lot of us who loved it. We loved it so much we made it our number one! There’s something about the vertical lines and the fit of the dress that makes it brilliant. It’s almost statuesque, a very daring choice for the Oscars where people usually play it safe.
