Halle Berry wades through the surf in a cotton dress verging on transparent and relaxes in a revealing crochet dress looking every inch the alluring star, Mail Online reported.

She knows how to play a role - and when it comes to launching your own brand of perfume - that has to be nothing short of stunningly sexy and available.

The 42-year-old becomes the latest in a long line of celebs to promote their own line of fragrance - but hers has taken more work than most.

She has spent two years coming up with the scent, a woody smell and image are meant to evoke memories of the beach.

Halle told the WWDBeauty website: ‘(Before my fragrance) I was mixing other brands that shall remain nameless to make my own scent with fig and mimosa.

‘With Halle, I added olibanum, which is an African root, which brings spice to the fragrance, and sandalwood, which smoothes everything out and makes it yummy.

‘It’s very sensual, very natural, very much reflective of the outdoors.’

The top notes of the scent are Sicilian bergamot, fig leaves and pear blossom. It also contains notes from freesia petals, hibiscus flowers and mimosa.

In between making perfumes and movies, Hall has been caring for her 11-month-old daughter Nahla with her Canadian model boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.

Meanwhile, Halle has topped a poll of the most stylish Oscar looks of all time.

Halle wore a burgundy Elie Saab dress with sheer top and floral patchwork to the 2003 Oscars, where she picked up the Best Actress trophy for Monster's Ball.

Her win made history as Halle became the first African-American woman to win the accolade.

Coming close behind Halle in the Galaxy Minstrels poll, was Keira Knightley's 2006 Vera Wang outfit, and Heidi Klum's 2008 Galliano dress.
