A winning outfit! Halle Berry looks fantastic in slinky black gown at Oscars after-party... just five months following birth of her son
By IONA KIRBY
She is a previous Academy Award winner, so Halle Berry is a big fan of celebrating the Oscars.
And she picked a winning dress for an after-party in the form of the Fame and Philanthropy Post-Oscar Gala, held at The Vineyard in Beverly Hills on Sunday.
It was hard to believe that Halle gave birth to her second child less than five months ago as she showcased her amazing figure.

The 47-year-old was sporting a slinky black vintage Versace dress which hugged her trim shape and fell to the floor.
The gown, which she teamed with matching sandals, boasted ruched detail which served to highlight her curves, and had sexy straps which slipped off her shoulder.
Surprisingly, Halle isn't feeling totally body confident and told People at the event: 'I'm not quite where I want to be with my body, so this was a great dress for me to wear tonight!'
The star added that she is 'working hard' to lose the rest of her baby weight, and that motherhood is 'fantastic' while Maceo is even 'more fantastic'.

Halle’s brunette pixie cut was worn in a messy style and she also sported smoky eye make-up and shiny pink lip gloss.
She is adapting well to being a new mother again but Halle revealed to People: 'I'm working on a television show now, so I'm juggling working and being a mom and breast feeding while I'm working. It's a whole new life for me now all over again, having a new little baby again.'
However the mother-of-two doesn't see more children in her future and explained: 'I'm surprised I had the one I just had! So I doubt God is going to bless me again. I think I'm done!
The event was also attended by the likes of Paris Hilton and Shake It Up actress turned Dancing With The Stars alum Zendaya.

Meanwhile the bash saw Charlize Theron and Sean Penn make their red carpet debut as a couple.
Halle won a Best Actress Oscar in 2002 for her role in Monster’s Ball, and has not been nominated since.
The star is currently filming her new TV show Extant, which is set to begin airing later this year on CBS.
She recently received a visit on the set from her young son, which was when Maceo was pictured for the first time.

Halle plays an astronaut who struggles to readjust to life back home after returning from a year-long mission in space.
It has been announced that her scientist husband will be portrayed by ER star Goran Visnjic, while West Wing alum Michael O'Neill has also been cast as a former astronaut.
Maceo, whose middle name is Robert, is a first child for Halle’s actor husband Olivier Martinez and a second for Halle.
The star, who is on her third marriage, has a daughter named Nahla, who will turn six later this month, from her relationship with model Gabriel Aubry.
