Who run the world?
Halle attended the event with her boyfriend, Van Hunt. The Oscar-winning actress wore a long-sleeve pink-and-black paisley-printed gown.
The star was one of nine honorees and individual cover stars of the magazine's annual "Women in Hollywood" issue. She was recognized for being a "barrier breaker" as the "first (and still only) Black woman to win the Best Actress Oscar" and was also praised by the outlet for making her directorial debut with the upcoming Netflix film Bruised, in which she plays an MMA fighter.
Halle posted a photo of her ELLE cover on Instagram, writing, "So honored to be a part of @elleusa's 2021 "Women in Hollywood" issue alongside so many incredible and inspiring women."
Fellow honorees Gal Gadot, Rita Moreno and Jennifer Hudson were also in attendance at the ELLE Women in Hollywood Celebration, as were other notable names, such as Demi Moore, Lucy Hale, Ciara, Kerry Washington, Alexandra Daddario, Jurnee Smollett, Debbie Allen, Lena Waithe, Jordana Brewster, Mj Rodriguez, and Eva Longoria, who served as host.
