It should come as no surprise that Halle Berry looks stunning in everything that she wears. So far, we've seen stellar ensembles that range from chic leopard-print tops (sans pants) to show-stopping see-through gowns. But now, we're turning our attention to the stylish ensemble that she wore during a special night out with her boyfriend, Van Hunt.

Last week, the Catwoman actress attended the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures Opening Gala in Los Angeles, turning heads with her little black dress and matching heels.

In the pic, Berry looked radiant in her mini black Etro dress, featuring a plunging neckline, see-through puff sleeves and a flared skirt. The actress paired the flirty dress with black platform sandals and a simple golden bracelet from Cartier. Meanwhile, she opted for an elegant bun with bangs to complete the look, giving us major ballerina vibes.

The 55-year-old star shared a photo of the look to her personal Instagram page and wrote, "Still not over this @etro dress…" TBH, neither are we. Which is why we did a bit of sleuthing online to see if we could find it on Etro, but unfortunately, this exact design is currently not available. However, we did find a similar Puff Sleeve Mini Dress, now on sale for $64 at ASOS. And if you want to complete the look, these Natasha Platform Heeled Sandals, now available at ASOS for $40, ought to do the trick.

Berry hit the green carpet with her partner Van Hunt, who looked sharp in his three-piece black suit. On Instagram, the Gothika star shared a few of their snaps together and captioned the post, "About last night… at the grand opening of the Academy Museum [heart emojis]."

In case you missed it, Berry confirmed her relationship with Hunt in September 2020, after sharing a pic of herself wearing his merch. She simply wrote, "now ya know...[heart and foot emoji]." Since then, the couple have been posting cute selfies on IG and making public appearances—including their adorable red carpet debut a this year's Oscars.

Something tells us we'll be seeing a lot more of Halle and Van at future red carpet events.
