Her Golden Globes number didn’t get the best reviews, but it’s okay — Halle Berry had already made jaws drop the day before. The star’s striking red Monique Lhuillier dress — yep, the one with the thigh-high slit and structured neckline — was the most loved look of the week.

Berry’s gown, worn to the BET Honors in Washington, D.C., earned more than 12,000 “love” votes from PEOPLE.com readers, giving it the top spot on our best dressed list. She finished off the va-va-voom look with Karine Sultan jewels and sexy Brian Atwood sandals.

In the exclusive 30-second video (below), the gorgeous actresses show off their manis while posing in a photo booth.

Stone and Berry ham it up, making funny faces, but it’s Wilde who seems be having the most fun — she wears a top hat and even a fake mustache.

Halle Berry: My Short Hair Doesn't Define Me

It’s been more than three years since Halle Berry famously chopped off her hair, but it’s still an ever-present topic of conversation for the star.

“When I have my short, short hair, that’s when I’m my best self,” she tells PEOPLE. “But hair doesn’t define me. It’s just an accessory that I get to wear, like a handbag or shoes.”

However, at the start of Berry’s career, her lengthy locks did define her, since long hair is so often seen as beautiful in Hollywood. “I personally fought against that stereotype when I first started acting,” she explains. “I would go on acting auditions, and every black girl would have this long, curly hair, whether it was real or not. And I would go to these auditions and come back with nothing. So I had to somehow be different.”

Berry actually made her first big cut around 1989. “I remember I went up to my manager’s office and his heart probably stopped beating. And he said, ‘You’re never going to work, you’re not what they want!’ And I said, ‘Good. Let me be something different then.”

Two weeks later, she got her first TV job, as a model on the short-lived ABC series Living Dolls. “I had short hair and that’s why they chose me — because I was different and not like everyone else. It was the way I kind of rebelled against … the notion that you have to have long hair to be beautiful.” Hear more from Berry in this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now.

Why Halle Berry Keeps Her Clothing in 'Tombs'

Halle Berry‘s sense of style has come a long way. “Someone just showed me a photo from the ’80s, in which I was wearing a polka-dot and flower-print suit with puffy sleeves,” she says in the November issue of InStyle. “At the time I thought, ‘Oh I am stylin’!’ But no …”

Now, the stunning star gets by on some solid fashion advice — “Don’t be a slave to trends,” she shares — and keeps her closet packed with style staples.

“Levi’s 501 button-fly jeans still do it right,” she says. “They have some of the best washes, and the fit is classic and good for my size butt. Plus, they are not crazy money.”

Also close at hand? “Gucci black patent leather pumps with really pointy toes,” she says. “I’m glad pointy toes are coming back, because that’s my jam!”

Simple jewelry is a must, too. “I like Ippolita designs and have pieces with energy stones such as tiger’s eye, rose quartz and jade,” she reveals. “And, of course, I love my emerald engagement ring!”

Such timeless pieces make great keepsakes — and that’s exactly how Berry intends to treat them.

We admit we’ve worn sweats to the grocery store before — seriously, who hasn’t? — but seeing stars get dressed to grab the basics always makes us want to set the bar a bit higher.

Take Jessica Alba (left), who manages to make her grocery run comfy-chic in a maxi, cardigan and hat. Or Halle Berry (second from left), whose white top, jean shorts and flip-flops say “casual cool.” Zoë Saldana (center), Kate Bosworth (second from right) and January Jones (right) also use the simple errand run as an opportunity to get glam, without looking like they tried too hard.

So which star’s grocery store style is best? Vote in our poll below — your responses could appear in an upcoming issue of PEOPLE!
