The actress stepped out for the 93rd Academy Awards wearing a stunning purple gown and showcasing a short new hairdo with trendy micro fringe. The star looked thrilled with her choppy new bob as she posed for the cameras in her gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana dress. Halle looked amazing in the strapless design with its eye-catching purple hue, ruched bodice and flowing material.

When it comes to hairstyles, Halle is an A-list chameleon, changing up her look to suit not only her acting roles but also her personal style. Earlier in the month, the star had mid-length locks, before deciding to go for the dramatic chop.

Halle Berry wowed us with a brand new hairdo

Back in 2017 was the last time that Halle was presenting at the awards, and then she had a totally different look with voluminous natural-looking curls – but again, one thing remained the same, she looked utterly incredible.

Breaking the Academy Awards' almost hundred-year-old history of male dominated categories, this is the first year more than one female director has been nominated in the 'Best Director' category.

Directors Chloé Zhao (Nomadland) and Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman) were both nominated, with Zhao also becoming the first Asian woman ever to receive a nod.

For the third year in a row, the show did not have an official host, but instead featured a range of famous faces presenting the awards, including Brad Pitt and Zendaya.

Due to social-distancing regulations, the 2021 Academy Awards was held across two venues in Hollywood - the Dolby Theatre and downtown Los Angeles' historic Union Station. British nominees gathered at the BFI Southbank, where the London Film Festival usually takes place, and joined the show via a live stream.
