She never fails to make an impact on the red carpet and last night was certainly no exception.
Halle Berry dazzled in a midnight blue satin dress and looked like a total knockout as she arrived at Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night.
The 44-year-old actress was presented with an award for her work helping the needy at the charity fundraiser held at JW Marriot Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Arizona last night.

Ali, a three-time World Heavyweight Champion was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1984.

Halle has been filming her latest filming New Year’s Eve earlier this month in New York.
The actress originally pulled out of the film because she was embroiled in a court case with her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry but later signed up to the film in a smaller role.
Halle won a court bid to take her daughter with her on location and while she was filming her scenes in Queens Gabriel took their daughter Nahla on a tour of the city.
