Stunning actress Halle Berry's planned outfit for the Academy Awards is so dazzling, her stylist promises it will even be inspiration to the troops fighting in the Middle East.

The OSCAR-winning beauty regularly shines on the red carpets of star-studded events with her classy outfits.

And despite the withdrawal of the red carpet from the Hollywood ceremony on Sunday (23MAR03) in recognition of the American-led war with Iraq, Berry still plans to turn heads when she puts in an appearance to present the Best Actor award.

Celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch, will dress the MONSTER'S BALL star, Jim Carrey and Iman, says he's advised his clients to stick to their original attire.

He says, "If a picture of Halle gets out and those guys in the service see it, it will only inspire them all the more."
