Halle Berry turned heads in Beverly Hills today, walking the red carpet at the Essence Magazine Women in Hollywood Awards.

The 42-year-old actress and mom stunned in a metallic sheath with gold floral details and a flowing back, alligator Louboutin pumps and a matching-skin clutch.

While the Academy Award winner isn’t celebrating a nod this year, it seems Gabriel Aubrey is the one with the true trophy.
