Halle Berry made a second appearance at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party wearing a sheer minidress after making her entrance at the 2023 Oscars on March 12 in a stunning Tamara Ralph outfit. The Oscar de la Renta creation, which was taken from the designer’s autumn 2023 collection, included layers of dozens of sequin bows stitched all around the bell-shaped structure of the garment. Berry’s personal stylist for the evening, Lindsay Flores, accessorized the after-party look with Casadei heels and silver jewelry by Niwaka.

Berry wore a black bodysuit under her party attire, following the lead of many other celebrities who have been sighted in sheer clothing in recent months. On the surface, the design appeared chic and seductive. But, a closer look uncovered even more minute characteristics. The garment had rows of beautifully arranged bowties, each covered in hundreds of black sequins, on top of the mesh base layer.

The sleeveless dress had a huge bowtie in the middle of the chest, just below the neckline. The arrangement was replicated on the dress’ sides and back, with two bows under each arm and a big bow lying in the middle of Berry’s back.The embellishments got thinner as the layers went down her skirt, emphasizing the high-low flare of the outfit. Her makeup artists added delicate details, and her layered curls highlighted her edgy pixie cut.

Berry’s afterparty outfit, which was similar to her angelic look earlier in the evening, revealed her toned legs, the result of a rigorous pre-Oscars gym regimen.
