The sexiest woman alive gets away with everything.  Yesterday Halle Berry showed up for the 2nd Annual Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon with some hairy-ass pits that hardly anyone even noticed because she looked so damn gorgeous otherwise. 

Showing off her J-Lo curves, the actress and low-maintenance mom attested to her love of iridescence in a shiny caramel dress with a giant bow (where it counts) accessorized with a croc clutch and matching peep-toe heels.  Girl knows how to throw some polish on top of that hippiedom!

Also attending the event, which celebrated the advances of black women in Hollywood, were Taraji P. Henson, Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth and fellow Essence Magazine covergirl Kerry Washington.  Even some boys came out to support their sistas, including singer/actor Tyrese Gibson and music man Quincy Jones
