We continue to be completely in awe — and a little jealous — of Halle Berry's ability to look stunningly gorgeous year after year without ever aging a bit. The latest case in point came when Halle chose a Rachel Roy blue dress for Muhammad Ali's Celebrity Fight Night event. The form-fitting dress hugged her perfect curves, well, perfectly, and she showed her usual less-is-more beauty approach with a smoky eye and neutral makeup. Her accessories were kept to sparkly hoop earrings, a cool silver hoop, and a ring on her pinky finger. Check out our slideshow to see more of Halle's look.
Halle Berry joined stars including Superman's new dad Kevin Costner, Kelly Clarkson, and a slimmed-down Jordin Sparks in Phoenix, AZ, for the annual Celebrity Fight Night awards ceremony on Saturday. The actress was without her boyfriend, Olivier Martinez, at the dinner, but did plant a kiss on Muhammad Ali, who hosts the yearly event. Halle made her way to the desert after shooting her role in New Year's Eve in NYC earlier this month and throwing her daughter, Nahla, a beachside third birthday party in LA just last week.
The Beverly Wilshire Hotel in LA hosted a special UNICEF Ball last night to honor producer Jerry Weintraub. The man of the evening posed for photos on the blue carpet with George Clooney. Matt Damon posed alone, and his new movie, Invictus, is out today — read Buzz's review here. George's vacation buddies, Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, stuck close together, though Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie skipped the flashbulbs and headed inside along with Elisabetta Canalis. Yesterday also marked Human Rights Day, which prompted Angelina to pen an article for Newsweek. She wrote about the ongoing crisis in Sudan, questioning the Obama administration's policies toward the country and its leaders on the same day the President picked up his Nobel Peace Prize.
Despite the day's heavy subject matter, Angelina seemed to keep it light inside the bash. She planted kisses on Jerry before he accepted an award from George, who lauded the producer by saying, "When it comes to charities, nobody guilts better." Angelina then moved on to show some affection to Muhammad Ali while an amused Brad laughed. Matt Damon linked up with his wife Luciana once inside, and George kept Elisabetta close during the dinner.

If you've been following Dancing with the Stars this season then you've seen Laila Ali strut her stuff across the stage...
Being the daughter of boxer Muhammad Ali certainly helps, but that girl is fit (and she can move too). Ali has announced that Dancing with the Stars is just the beginning of her upcoming fitness ventures including a boxing oriented fitness DVD series with Sugar Ray Leonard and a book. The DVD set includes Lightweight Beginner's Workout ($10.91), which is a series of warm-up exercises and stretches. The cardio-boxing routine has easy to follow combinations of punches as well as defensive moves. This DVD can help you get fit all while seeing the other, non dancing, side of Laila. It's refreshing to me that she is not looking to be club hopping with Paris and Nicole but rather, she’d like to set an example for young women and others about the importance of living a healthy life. Fame or not, with an outlook like that, she's got a fan in me.
Not a boxer but still want a hot Dancing with the Stars bod like Stacey Keibler or Cheryl Burke? You can get it at home with the Dancing with the Stars Cardio Dance DVD.
