WERQ: Halle Berry in Dolce&Gabbana

Posted on October 26, 2012

Because it’s Friday and our word tank is low. Because Miss Halle’s a “let the pictures do the talking” kinda lady.

And because…


Halle Berry attends the premiere of ‘Cloud Atlas’ in Los Angeles in Dolce&Gabbana.

Come on, now. Bitch is WERQing that dress.

      HALLE (pause) BERRY! That’s all I can muster.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        That pretty much sums it up.

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

      Yeah, but… don’t like the shoes and it sort of seems to be from the Heidi Klum playbook, although better fitted than Frau Klum’s stuff.

      • Sobaika

        Thing is, Heidi defaults to this regularly.

      • MilaXX

        If it was Heidi’s it would be 3 inches shorter and we’d be able to see her belly button because the dress was so tight. Sure Halle works her body like like Klum, but she always manages to get clothes that fit. I think she could have done a silver strappy sandal, but probably thought that was one shiny element too many.

        • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

           I think the only reason we CAN’T see her bellybutton in this is because of where the boning sits.

          • Janet B

            Thank goodness for boning.

          • Laylalola

            That’s strange, I swear I thought I saw her belly button in the first photo.

        • Mary229

          Also I give Halle a pass to because she is a legit acress promoting a film. She didn’t just show up to be photographed.

      • http://twitter.com/Kathy_Marlow aka Darth Mommy

         And longer, Heidi would have had at least 3 inches off the skirt.

    • http://twitter.com/jack_attack88 Jackie Stewart

      She’s spectacular.

    • BazoDee

      Shutting it the hell down. WERQ IT lady!!! 46!!!!! This is how you do it starlets!!! Her skin is just amazing.

      • kimmeister

        Even the skin on her hands looks good!

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3JSTXMWWVZN2QNP2UEKJMTWD7U Isabel

          And the nails with clear polish!

        • another_laura

          So would my hands, with emeralds…. sigh….

    • kelsita421

      “werq” is to halle berry as “of course” is to lea michele. le sigh.

      • brokephilosopher

        I’m a tutor and recently I’ve been having to write analogy packets for my students.  Oh how I wish I could use this analogy for them!! “werq is Halle Berry as _____ is to Lea Michele.”

    • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

      She makes me feel like an inferior species.

      Love those shoes.

      • Introspective

        Because all of us are inferior next to such perfection. Double sigh.

    • Ali Quirk

      her skin is glowing brighter than the dress!  gorgeous

    • http://twitter.com/tangodiva Tanya Wade

      Face. Body. Fashion. 

    • amaranth16


    • dress_up_doll

      I have to agree with not liking the shoes. I don’t know if something with more polish or a reflectory element would look better, but not liking the shoe at all. On the other hand, Ms. Berry is once again werq’n the s*** out of that dress.

    • SouthernGirlRena

      Halle is a stunningly beautiful woman with great style but I don’t love this at all.  Unless you see the dress up close, it looks like aluminum foil and the hair is too bedhead.  Sorry Halle.  I still love you.

      • Clueless_Jock

        Agreed, though the dress would have been stunning in a dark color.

        • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead

           Those were my first thoughts, too. Tin foil & bedhead. But I have a rational hatred of her, so I thought maybe it was just me. I’m incapable of being objective about her.

          • mountainFashionista

             I have to ask: What’s the source of your rational hatred? Usually kittens claim to be bitter for no discernible reason.

            • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead

               She’s got a bad rap in the diabetes community for some of the things she’s said about controlling her type 1. My daughter has type 1 and I used to write for a diabetes site and she just got everyone up in arms.

            • Jennifer L.

              Also, her perspective on race is borderline tacky at best, completely unthinking at worst. In her custody case with her daughter, she claimed the “one drop” of black ancestry rule for why she would be the better parent. 

      • MissAnnieRN

        I agree about the aluminum foil.  I also think it’s too tight.  But the way it makes her girls look is nothing short of WERQ.  She is 46 and she has a child.  Her DNA is clearly superior to all others.  Not a single stretch mark on those boobs!  I don’t think she’s had work done, either.  Or I choose to believe that is all superior DNA.  

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=811053804 Stacy Parker Cole

      And THAT is how you do it you lesser movie star ladies!

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/47S737MGWCAZEZ73QOAFKDFEKQ Jill

      I really don’t like the dress or the color on her but she could look gorgeous in a wet bed sheet.

    • MilaXX

      as always.
      I truly hope this guy is the one. She always has such horrible luck with guys.

    • jilly_d

      If i had that skin, i would wear nothing. All day, every day.

    • B_C_J

      This is a fantastic dress in a fantastic color being worn by a glowingly beautiful woman.  She is radiating sensuality, glamour, femininity and confidence.  The platinum lace overlay is ethereal and she is so smart because she realizes that the dress is also her jewelry.  She looks impeccable. The only minor flaw is that I wish she had smoothed down the dress just a tad before the photo.  It has gathered a little across her hips but it’s a minor detail.

      • http://profiles.google.com/marteani Barbara Guttman

        I’m fairly certain that dress is simply too small.  Absolutely should have gone up a size.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

          I agree. It’s puckering across the abdomen. And if/when she sits, it’s going to split up the back.

          The question is, if it’s too small for Halle Berry, who DOES it fit???

    • A B

      Very pretty–but the shoes are distractingly weird.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/J2VE4NE2FY2BP4QD2XOYKJGLPI Laura

      Good lord…

      • Kristin McNamara

        My reaction exactly. Jennifer Aniston and Heidi Klum take note: THIS IS HOW YOU DO SHORT, TIGHT, AND SHINY!

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/DNWEFT2SVBX5T3NPMROQCT4U2U jennyv

      It’s a smidge too tight and she seems to have botox brow. GURL, YOU DO NOT NEED BOTOX. 

      • kschwarting

        Thank you!  I was feeling bad because I couldn’t get on the love train with this dress–it’s pulling across her hips.

        • http://profiles.google.com/marteani Barbara Guttman

          It’s pulling across everywhere.

    • Nonmercisansfacon

      Thank Goddess this dress found Halle before Jenn Anniston! 

    • Lattis

      b. love how her nails are natural
      c. god damn it. If only I could have ordered my dang body instead of being assigned one . . . 

    • Janet B

      Love her earrings.

    • http://twitter.com/Chucko78 Chuck Barthelme

      It would be really tough to make her look bad. 

    • VeryClaire

      Good lord, can a human be more gorgeous? It’s not like she could look bad in a dress, so it’s not really fair to rate her as you do other mortals.

    • Bill Curtis

      I would switch teams.  I would.

    • J D

      Sometimes I wish she’d chill with all of the amount of skin she shows.  Just to shake things up a bit.  Sometimes it’s sexier to hint at something rather than just shoving it in everyone’s face.  See: Klum, Heidi.

    • butterflysunita


    • decormaven

      I covet the emerald ring. What is the stone used in the earrings? That is a WERQ indeed.

    • Tatiana Luján

      Is she human? 

      • Rand Ortega

         I personally believe she’s 1 of our alien overlords  here to mesmerize us in order to conquer the planet then force us to watch “BAPS” over & over for all eternity.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3JSTXMWWVZN2QNP2UEKJMTWD7U Isabel

          That’s her last character in the Cloud Atlas movie!

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      Why didn’t she ever look this good as Storm? As fab as everything else is, I loathe those shoes. 

    • http://profiles.google.com/marteani Barbara Guttman

      That dress is way too tight.  If you see fabric puckering like that between your plastic stays, go up a size.  If she bends at the waist she’s going to start ripping seams.

    • http://blue-again.myopenid.com/ blue

      I love Halle Berry. She’s gorgeous and older than me. Gives me hope!

    • greyhoundgirl

      Pop of green in the ring?  Perfect!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=790818401 Laurie Landry

      Argh, she’s gorgeous!

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/GLERYB7G4QX7Z5ED54AWP2JIMA Mary

      Perfection from head to foot.  that corset midsection done with lace is a tour-de-force of tailoring.  That stuff does not forgive being cut off grain or a stitch put wrong.  Brava.

    • Rand Ortega


    • kimmeister

      I think the shoes are all wrong.  The black stripe of the sole is terribly eye-pulling.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

        I agree. They’re very much ‘dominatrix corporate lawyer.’ This dress needs a pretty, strappy sandal.

    • dorothea_brooke

      The woman has the most perfect set of breasts ever.  Bitch does not age.  Sigh.  

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      Serving  up Lena Horne fabulosity.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_F73LIJ3SJGI5AJQMXMWXCKILHI Pamela

      I’d love to WERQ that friggin’ emerald ring, please!

    • http://twitter.com/juliafoxtrot Julia Fox

      I hope I look like her at 46. I don’t even mean I hope I look that good. I mean….I hope I wake up and I actually look like Halle Berry. Because DAMN. WERQ girl.

    • http://twitter.com/LopezMolly Molly Lopez

      Yeah she looks great in it but she’s done it before and it’s a little boring

    • julesj

      Take notes, Heidi Klum. 

    • Macy Augustus

      I think this look is a snooze from her.  It is nothing new.  Sure the dress is fine (but too tight), she’s got a great face, incredible figure, but I’m left wanting MORE.

    • PinkLemon

      still looks crazy-desperate.

    • neofashionista

      Grey is not a color many can do but Halle can WERQ grey for sure

    • Imasewsure

      I don’t like the shoes but she looks gorgeous!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1129137319 Paula Pertile

      She makes it look so easy.

    • another_laura

      She is werqin’ that dress, because I don’t like it but I have to admit defeat when it comes to the whole effect.  Brava, diva, and thanks for the knee length.

    • Lisa Kramp

      Bitch is still so fegging hot.

    • lalahartma

      Yes, I think it is too tight to be a werk, honestly.

    • http://twitter.com/LianaBrooks Liana Brooks

      Gimme the ring.

    • http://www.facebook.com/alexandra.pimenta Alexandra Gama Lima Pimenta

      Man…I used to love Halle Berry. Now, every time I see her, I either get bored or a little annoyed. And I don’t even know why. :(

    • Trisha26

      That dress looks like an all-in-one slip from the 60s! I expect to see Jessica Pare in that in Mad Men when she takes her real dress off. And those shoes are horrible. Hate that weird platform style.

    • nannypoo

      Oh, why do we even bother? She’s so beautiful, she can make anything look good. 

    • http://kingderella.tumblr.com/ kingderella

      i dont know about this. she doesnt look bad, exactly, but werq? that dress looks like aluminium foil, the jewlery is just kinda there. and i dont usually notice things like this, but woah, those close-ups of her hands are unflattering. the shoes are fierce, though.

    • IMNAngryLiberal

      Not a big fan of Ms. Berry and that dress is too tight, but I COVET those shoes.

    • Zippypie

      Too tight to be a WERQ.  Just one size up, Halle.  It’s okay.  And that emerald ring is to die for.

    • pookiesmom

      Seriously, this woman does NOT age. I don’t understand.

    • lucasuk82

      Oohh.. I dunno.  Love the ring, but them’s some Jiffy pop tatas.

    • TieDye64

      Not wild about the shoes, but damn if she doesn’t look amazing. BITCH.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      It’s Dolce & Gabbana and the fabric looks a tad cheap. The dress is also a tad too tight, but no one will deny that she’s WERQing it like nobody’s business. 

      • l_c_ann

        More like a full size too tight below the corset top. 

        Not that these clothes would ever be used for a second occasion, but all those horizontal folds would ruin the lace, big time.

    • quiltrx

      Say “silver lace corset slip dress” and we all shudder.  Show it to us on Halle and it’s a vision.

    • jeeplibby02

      The Second Coming of Lena Horne! 

    • TropiCarla

      This woman is MAGNIFICENT.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=603005248 Jeff Warhurst

      She looks great, but that’s like saying rain is wet.

    • http://twitter.com/Mr_Failjoy Lucretius Allagrass

      My default uber-compliment is no longer, “She would look good wearing a potato sack”; it is now, “She would look good wrapped in tin foil.”

      • MarissaLG

        And boy does she. 

    • kategs

      She needs to WERQ it because it’s a pretty boring dress.

    • unbornfawn

      On paper this dress would be a horrible idea. On Halle it WERQ’s!

    • ccm800

      navy metallic shoe would have umphed it over the top – but yeah. But saying Halle Berry looks gorgeous is like saying Jane Leno looks Caucasian 

      • julnyes

         okay google is not helping me – who is Jane Leno?

    • guest2visits

      She’s pretty.. the dress is pretty.. but I think this is abit tired and forced looking. Her make-up looks a little brighter and better.
      But she’s beginning to remind me of Heidi’s short-tight-shiny affliction.  Love the jewelry.

    • Mary229

      She hasn’t aged a day in 15 years. Gorgeous.

    • afabulous50

      So not a WERQ.  You guys must be exhausted!  The hair?  The shoes?  No, no, no.  Boooo

    • Rachel Council

      I really like those shoes, but maybe not with that dress. 

    • Zizi_N

      Love the dress hate the shoes with the dress. I’m thinking scrappy stumps would’ve made this entire look a resounding WERQ!

    • glennethph

      She’s had work done.  I mean, she’s genetically gifted but wow, her face doesn’t seem to have changed at all.  She’s actually prettier now, it seems.

    • GorgeousThings

      “Bitch is WERQing that dress. ”
      Bitch looks fabulous!

    • Neverbuynewclothes

      Enough energy being radiated here to power a small city.

    • julnyes

      Personally I love the shoes. The dress is bleh, but she is working it. She is an amazingly beautiful woman and she knows how to showcase her assets, so she is consistently a leg up over other celebs who can’t seem to put an attractive look together despite having similar claims to swimming in the fancy end of the gene pool.

    • RzYoung

      Oh my christ she looks good. I FLOVE that emerald ring, l-o-v-e.

    • Judy_J

      Love the shoes, too!  She looks FABULOUS!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1208138556 Sara Munoz Munoz

      Hate those shoes.

    • EEKstl

      The level of genetic and sartorial perfection here is sort of insane.

    • lrhoff

      I’m confused….you criticize Renee Zelwegger for wearing tight clothes but applaud Halle Berry?  I think Renee’s look far exceeds Halle’s.  Are we playing favorites, boys?  Tsk tsk.

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        Were you expecting objectivity? Tsk tsk.

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      Bitch does not age.  How does she do it?  She looks fab-u-lous!  And I covet that emerald ring so much!

    • enchanted216

      Too tight and trying too hard.

    • marilyn

      It is one of those looks that is gorgeous, but a little too slutty.  The skirt is a little to short, the top is a little to low and it is a little too tight, over all.  She can still make it look as respectable as it is going to.   She seems to have the same gift as Kate Hudson: The ability to make a slutty dress look respectable.

      What’s with the bed head.  She did that on purpose?
