And she delivered an acceptance speech just as memorable as the dress. “This moment is so much bigger than me,” Halle said on stage at the time. “This moment is for Dorothy Dandridge, Lena Horne, Diahann Carroll. It’s for the women that stand beside me, Jada Pinkett, Angela Bassett, Vivica Fox. And it’s for every nameless, faceless woman of color that now has a chance because this door tonight now has been opened.”
