“There is nothing better than being able to collaborate with my best friend,” said actress Halle Berry of Lindsay Flores, her stylist of 15 years. “Lindsay has always been able to understand my individual sense of style. Her keen eye, and elevated sense of fashion, takes my style to the next level. Simply put, she’s my secret weapon!” And last night, as Berry took to the Oscars dressed in a blush pink Atelier Versace dress, Vince Camuto shoes, and Forevermark jewelry, it was clear just how impactful that fashion connection was.
“We really responded to this Atelier Versace gown because it embodied the perfect balance of classic Oscar glamour met with a modern rock and roll edge,” said Flores. “Halle has a personal relationship with Donatella and has worn both Donatella and Gianni [designs] over the years. The Versace aesthetic is all about strong and powerful women, which is so intrinsically Halle.” The resulting dress featured intricate embellishments that worked to flatter the 50-year-old actress’s gorgeous body. It was an especially great fit for Berry, whose red-carpet style has always tended toward bold and beautiful. “I have always marched to the beat to my own drum, and I think this red-carpet look encapsulates that,” said Berry. “The dress is glamorous with a sense of romance that made me feel feminine and fresh. With this look, I celebrate my natural hair by allowing it to be wild and free.”
Working with Castillo Bataille from TACK Artist Group on her coiffure and Kara Yoshimoto Bua on her makeup, Berry’s final look was composed and striking. Where other finishing touches were concerned, such as red-carpet jewelry, Berry and Flores had a chic, less-is-more approach. “I generally choose something gorgeous but minimal,” said Berry. “This year I found the perfect jewelry that really enhances my dress perfectly.” Having collaborated together for almost two decades, does the pair have any favorite moments? “The Elie Saab dress I won my Oscar in!” said Berry. For her part, Flores cited the Monique Lhuillier ensemble the actress sported to the 2013 BET Awards. “It is more about how I feel in the dress than anything else,” said Berry. “I just have to feel my best self.” And yesterday, Berry and Flores proved the power of the right dress yet again.

'I have felt guilty': Halle Berry, 50, reveals she has experienced 'anguish' about divorces from Olivier Martinez, Eric Benet and David Justice

'I have felt guilty': Halle Berry, 50, reveals she has experienced 'anguish' about divorces from Olivier Martinez, Eric Benet and David Justice

Halle Berry has been divorced three times.
But the Catwoman star does not take those failures lightly.
During Q&A at the 2017 City Summit and Gala at the USC Tower in Los Angeles on Saturday, the 50-year-old beauty touched on her three divorces, revealing she has felt 'guilty' about them, according to Entertainment Tonight.

'I’ve often felt guilty and responsible. I’ve suffered a lot of pain and anguish,' said the Oscar winner. 
Her three exes are actor Olivier Martinez (2013–2016), singer Eric Benét (2001–2005), and baseball player David Justice (1992–1997).
The Elle cover girl - who was a keynote speaker about the event - said: 'I have learned to deal with three failed marriages, which has not been easy, especially when there’s children involved.'

She has two kids: Nahla, eight (from boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, who she never wed), and Maceo, three (from Olivier).
'[As] women, we go into marriage thinking it’s going to last forever and that this is our prince on a shiny horse. That’s what fairy tales taught me as a kid … and I’m kind of anti–fairy tales today.'
She added that when the split happens 'it feels like a huge failure and a huge disappointment.'

But there has been an upside.
'In every one of those situations, as hard — and sometimes embarrassing — as it was, I learned so much about myself,' she said.
'All of those relationships were necessary for me. We all come here with lessons that we have to learn, and those relationships provided me with lessons that got me to where I am right now. For that, I’m grateful. But it has been hard. It’s been a difficult part of my life.' 
The star is heavily involved with the Jenesse Center, a domestic-violence prevention program, which she also discussed at the event.

The Catwoman star wore a pretty black dress and decorated heels that made the most of her 5ft5in frame.
The dress was unusual because it waved around her knees.
The Extant actress added on a pair of red and black strapped shoes that flaunted her unique style at events.
Carrying herself well with plenty of confidence, the mother of two wore a silver bracelet as she smiled for the cameras.

Halle remains to be incredible shape, but that doesn't come easily for her.
She told LA Times in August 2015 that she's had to take more caution in staying healthy.
'I am more conscious of what I eat,' she said. 'I have never worked out with a lot of weights unless I had to for a film role.'

'Left to my own devices, I just do cardio,' the X-Men star added.
'I do exercises that involve my own body weight because I never want to get too muscly. I am diabetic, so exercising has always been a part of managing my disease and keeping my sugars under control.'  
Halle's next film is called Kidnap where she plays a mom whose son gets snatched away by a driver. 
She then goes on a wild goose chase to rescue him causing more chaos along the way.
The film hits theaters on March 10.
