Halle Berry is that girl. The Oscar-winning actress is undeniably talented, inspirational, and beautiful. How else do you get 50+ rap songs to name-drop you solely on your looks? Besides being a great talent and inspiration to other budding young actresses, she has an undeniable style that has been prevalently seen throughout her two-decade-long career. Take a look at 20 years of Halle Berry’s exquisite looks that only get better with time:
Who could forget Halle Berry's beautiful gown and historical "Best Actress" win at the 74th Annual Academy Awards for her performance in 'Monster Ball,' in 2002.

Not too often do you see the Ohio native sporting a print on the carpet, but back in 2008 for the Silver Rose Awards she rocked this cheetah print dress which was very on trend in the 2000s.
Berry loves a sweetheart neckline and a neutral color which works for the actress every single time. She wore this to the 2nd Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon back in 2009.
At this point in her career Berry was a household name not only for her acting but for also never disappointing on the carpet.
