From the time she entered the entertainment scene, Halle Bailey was destined to take over. In her 20s, she made history as the first woman of color to play Ariel in Disney's The Little Mermaid. She has also shown her musical talent by having a Grammy award to her name.

Having been in the spotlight for years, she's been serving looks, rocking everything from cut-out gowns to voluminous dresses. Here's a run of the changes in her style over the years.

Stepping into the Entertainment Scene: The Love for Bodysuits and Jumpsuits

Halle Bailey was already making a statement on the red carpet from the first time she stepped out in the spotlight. In her early years, she commanded attention with her jumpsuits. Most of her signature designs were patterned. The most memorable one featured a pink chrome hue with green and orange spacesuit patches. She paired the suit with a matching headscarf and toe sock booties to finalize her look.

Another of her signature jumpsuits was a crystal embellished design with a cut-out design, halter neckline, and several dark silver-tone sequins. Halle accessorized it with dangle earrings, a diamond band, and a gemstone ring. On several occasions, she was also spotted wearing a bubblegum Rodarte bodysuit paired with a V-neckline top.

Mid-Year Career: A Shift to Simple Gowns and Dresses

In tandem with Halle’s career growth, she embraced a more elevated aesthetic by switching to dresses and gowns. This is a decision that was influenced by her stylist, Nicole Goodman. She has graced many red carpet events in the Candice one-shoulder sequin gown with a thigh side split. She paired the dress with a matching silver shoe and drop-down earrings to complete her look.

Halle Bailey has also sometimes put an edgy flair by wearing a boho chic dress with a halter neckline and pairing it up with a beaded bracelet and hoop earrings. She also complemented her looks by applying soft, drawn makeup and petal pout lip color.
