Beauty insiders were abuzz when Halle Berry took home the prestigious Celebrity Fragrance of the Year prize for her newest perfume, Reveal, at the FiFi Awards (the Oscars of the fragrance industry) in NYC on Wednesday night.

But it was the 44-year-old's midriff-revealing dress that had everyone talking. The black Halston frock featured a large cut-out on one side and a sexy slit up the front. She accessorized with gold earrings, a black clutch and strappy Christian Louboutin sandals.

The actress, who has a trio of scents under her beauty belt -- Halle by Halle Berry, Pure Orchid and Reveal -- was always a perfume fan.

"For years I have created my own personal scents by mixing and layering fragrances, trying to come up with something unique and different," Berry said in a statement. "It's a wonderful form of self-expression and I am thrilled to share these fragrances with consumers worldwide.

The night's other big celeb winner: Fergie, who snagged the New Celebrity Fragrance of the Year award for her scent, Outspoken by Fergie.
