Halep, who assured herself of retaining the No. 1 ranking with the victory, earned a fourth chance to win her first major title.
The Spaniard, who won the 2016 French Open, stayed on course for her third Grand Slam title.
Muguruza holds a 3-1 career edge over Halep in head-to-head meetings but the Romanian won their only clash on clay in Stuttgart in 2015.
Keys slipped two breaks down in the second but although she pulled one back Stephens served out for the match.
Maria Sharapova left the French Open without much of a fight, but had enough left in the tank to deliver a parting shot at Serena Williams. Particularly against Stosur and Sharapova, the 24-year-old was terrific and although she disagrees, Muguruza feels like the favourite coming into the semi-finals based on her clinical displays so far.
Current world number one Halep made the semi-finals for the 3rd time by battling past Germany's Angelique Kerber 6-7 (2/7), 6-3, 6-2.
"When you're facing somebody that also has an aggressive style of game", Muguruza said about facing Sharapova, "I think it's about who takes the command, who takes the first opportunity".

Cavs' James opens up about midseason doubts
Outside of James, these Cavs are drastically different than the team the Warriors played in last year's NBA Finals. Hill's up-and-down play during the playoffs has become a microcosm for Cleveland's wild swings in the postseason.
Golden State Warriors beat Houston Rockets to reach National Basketball Association finals
But he was eliminated in the playoffs by James before he was with the Warriors, and that grudge could still be there to this day. In Game 6, for instance, Harden drove to the cup a game-high 21 times , according to NBA Advanced Stats.
On Wednesday, Halep looked anything but the top seed, slipping 4-0 down in the first set before she rallied to defeat Kerber, a two-time major victor who had exited in the first round in Paris in the last two years.
Stephens beat her fellow American and great friend Madison Keys 6-4 6-4 in a repeat of last year's US Open final.
"I think it would be unusual for me not to include someone that I have competed against for so many years", said the 31-year-old.
The women got their matches done before rain arrived at Roland Garros, leaving the men's quarterfinals suspended in progress. She will face the victor of Thursday's all-American semifinal between Sloane Stephens and Madison Keys. Some of those matches were very defining for me. Like Sharapova, Halep was erratic early, making 30 unforced errors in the first set. When we get on the court, it's time to compete.
Stephens lost her serve for the first time against Keys when serving for the match at 5-2. Muguruza, who won the French Open in 2016 but didn't make it out of sectionals previous year, is continuing a fantastic run of tennis at Roland-Garros.
Sharapova, 31, was broken in the opening game of the second set which she immediately retrieved.
