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.

  • 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.

      •  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.

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

  • 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!

      • 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.”

  • 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

  • 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.

      •  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.

          •  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.  

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

  • 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.

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

      • 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.

  • Good lord…

    • Kristin McNamara

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

      • 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. 

  • 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.

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

  • greyhoundgirl

    Pop of green in the ring?  Perfect!

  • Argh, she’s gorgeous!

  • 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.

    • 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.  

  • Serving  up Lena Horne fabulosity.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Imasewsure

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

  • neofashionista

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

  • 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.

  • Gimme the ring.

  • 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. 

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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?
