Halle Berry Style Double Shot

Posted on July 09, 2014

Proof once again that the stars hang on our every word; desperate for some bit of priceless advice or constructive bit of criticism to fall from our keyboards, like a gift from heaven. You see, yesterday we noted that her glittery dominatrix dress wasn’t exactly breezy in its style. But really, it wasn’t a very fair criticism because she doesn’t really do “breezy.” She does sexy and structured and body con in her style choices.

And yet:

Oh, Miss Halle. While we’re flattered that you clearly ran out to find something breezy to wear based solely on our bitchiness, we didn’t mean for you to put on a hammock and call it a dress. You can go back to body con, hon.

And so it came to pass.

But this is kind of a distracting dress for television; especially those cuffs on the sleeves. And we’re not convinced that blocking is all that flattering when she’s seated. But she’s rocking it, there’s no doubt about that. It’s as standard as a Halle Berry look gets, but we can’t say she looks bad.

She does need a makeup rethink, though.

      That earcuff looks like something from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

      • MilaXX

        Agreed, but I like ear cuffs for some reason. In an irrational moment I actually bought one and now I’m too afraid to wear it because it looks like Elf cosplay.

        • Sobaika

          Wear it!!! I am pro-earcuff.

          • Sarah

            Me too. Ears are for decoratin’ if you ask me!

            • Kent Roby

              Me, three! I’ve been a fan since Whitney wore that amazing one in “The Greatest Love Of All” video.

        • lovelyivy

          I do that with my jewelry all the time. Go against the fear and wear it! At least once- after that it won’t seem like such a big deal.

        • Vegas Girl

          I like them in general, but do not like the one she is wearing. But I saw, wear it and have fun!

        • R.A.

          I wear my ear cuffs all the time, even to work. I got them on Etsy. Rock on!!

        • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

          My brother gave me one shaped like a dragon that wraps around the ear for my birthday. Nothing more elven-cosplay than that!

          • MilaXX

            Mine is test drop shaped crystals. It literally comes to a point like a Spock ear. I ordered mine online but didn’t realize it would be so big. The point goes up much higher than expected. I may still wear it if I can find the right outfit

            • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

              Since it’s only one ear that could just be cool and futuristic.

          • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

            I’ve seen those! I love them and I want one.

        • fursa_saida

          THIS IS WHY I KEEP NOT GETTING ONE. I want one real bad but I KNOW I would chicken out of wearing it.

      • Therese G.

        Or Voyager…Seven of Nine Realness!

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        Yup – came here to say that very same thing. I’m not a huge Trek person (just not my bag, baby*) but it’s nice to know that Ms. Berry identifies as Bajoran.

        *Farscape & Babylon 5 ARE my bag baby!

      • http://weirdinedgewise.blogspot.com ONEWEIRDWORD

        Bajoran!

    • http://recapscallion.blogspot.com/ Claire

      The first one is a scrolldown OUCH. I was like “Oh wow, that looks so comfy, I wish I was wearing– AGGHHHHHH HER POOR FEET!”

      • http://heartprintandstyle.com/ Vivi N

        Same exact thoughts.

    • Eva_baby

      Halle does breezy a LOT in her personal style. Just not so much on RC looks. Since I have been a Halle stalker for years & years I remember always loving how comfy and unstructured she looked when she we’d see pics of her random errands/grocery shopping etc.

      Not loving the first looks but her LEGS! My goodness!

      The second dress is a feat of structural engineering b/c she did tumbling — yes, i said tumbling as in rolling around on mats — in that dress on Jimmy Fallon’s show and it moved, but did not move, if you get my drift…

      • kimmeister

        You can see outlines of some underpinnings in the first shot of that 2nd look.

    • shirab

      Her legs! swoon.

    • RescueMe23

      I saw that second dress last week at Kohls.

      • TinyDynamo

        Kohls is THE WORST.

    • TinyDynamo

      Despite looking kind of like a fishing net, I really like the first look. The cream color is beautiful on her, and she looks so much healthier & happier in a less body con style. The second? NO. That dress is awful – it looks like something from the Juniors department. And her hair, makeup, & jewelry are all just terrible.

      • marlie

        And that also totally seems to be her style. I think I’d laugh at anyone on the street in that, but it sort of suits Halle’s aesthetic. (ETA: Regarding the first dress…)

      • FuhUgh

        Is that first one a Donna Karan schmatte? That’s what it looks like. DK does love her some asymmetry and some “natural” fabrics.

    • MilaXX

      I just want her to wear some color on her lips. I like the first look. I’ve seen pap pictures of her chilling about town wearing similar dresses, so I think it is part of her personal style. The second look is pretty standard, but I like that she has dialed back on the sexy for this pole dance. The dress are still body con, but slits or extreme cleavage.

    • Lower L

      The photo where her hands are by her face really shows how orangey her makeup is. Shouldn’t the cosmetics industry be able to come up with better products?

    • FibonacciSequins

      That first dress literally looks like it’s falling apart.

      The second dress looks nice and she did gymnastics with Jimmy in it. I don’t think you can ask for more from a dress.

    • http://www.robertjamesfischer.tumblr.com Theda

      Well, now we know that Halle Berry is beautiful even when wearing a rug.

    • Sarah

      If you’re gonna wear Shipwreck Chic, you should pair it with sandals. And maybe not go on TV. Second look: Okay. I like her ear cuff. I sport all kind of crap on my ears, so I dig that look.

      • kimmeister

        I thought of you when I realized I had committed a wardrobe malfunction yesterday. Not because of the malfunction (wearing two totally different earrings inadvertently), but because they were both winged creatures (an owl and a dragonfly). At least they both matched my outfit . . .

        • Sarah

          Hehee that’s cool. One daytime winged creature, one nighttime one. That’s not a malfunction, that’s just being creative!

          • demidaemon

            Agreed!

    • TheLaurenJean

      I have that exact hammock hanging in my porch right now. It’s tricky to get out of, so I understand how she got stuck. At least she removed the bar, though I would have appreciated the callback to Carol Burnett.

      • Joanna

        OMG, this is SO Carol Burnett’s Gone with the Wind sketch . . . dying!

    • Alyssa

      I wish she would not avoid lip color or colored shoes…both would have made these looks better, IMO.

    • boweryboy

      I kinda like the fisherman’s net dress for reasons I can’t explain because ugly. Plus, I think the shoes are a poor choice – some cool flat sandals would elevate this look into something breezy and chic.

      The second look is typical Halle.

      • muelonil

        I totally agree about the first dress needing sandals…but then we probably would have busted her for wearing sandals in NYC.

        • boweryboy

          Fashion is a fickle bitch.

          • muelonil

            Ha! Indeed!

    • Ganoc

      Way off topic, but I am Ever-So-Hopeful TLo will comment on Conchita Wurst in Jean Paul Gaultier. Ever-So-Hopeful.

    • Danielle

      She looks like she’s having a ball, I can’t begrudge her.

    • colleenjanel

      Those calves! Sick!

    • Kim Elmore

      Her body is sick!!!

    • Rhonda Shore

      It was SO hot yesterday that the white hammock dress makes sense to me. And sometimes i find a loose outfit really suits a killer bod.

    • Judy_J

      Breezy dress AND killer shades! She listened to every word you said.

    • smh4748

      Know what that first dress reminds me of? That scene in The Little Mermaid where newly human Ariel rigs up a dress out of a ship sail or something and kind of drapes it around her. This dress has the same “salvaged from the wreck of a seafaring vessel vibe.”

      My goodness, she’s got a pretty face though. She’s damn close to as perfect as humans get.

      • kimmeister

        I TOTALLY was going to post that same Little Mermaid reference but thought I might be the only one!

    • MissusBee

      Agree that both outfits have issues, but it’s so great to see her in something that she’s having fun with, while still ladylike and flaunting hotness. Brava.

    • In_Stitches

      I kind of like the hammock. I mean, I know it’s a bunch of malarky, but there’s something so easy about it that I have to love it. It’s a bit…dystopian-future-shaman, but hey, that’s an aesthetic I respond to.

    • Kent Roby

      Miss Halle is serving up some “Catch of the Day” realness in that fishing net.

    • Cathy S

      Her calf muscles are to die for.

      • Wink

        And, her arms look great in that ‘fishnet’ dress. Her body is beyond belief.

    • StrandedFashionista

      The first outfit is so ‘OMG CASUALLY CAUGHT IN A FISHNET #MERMAID #NOFILTER’

    • frannyprof

      She’s one of those celebs whose street style trumps her RC style.

    • quiltrx

      Uncles, I’m pretty sure that first look is pointed RIGHT at you! “Look, you judgmental fuckers, I can do BREEZY and I have FANCY SUNGLASSES too!”

    • Linda LaPaz

      I love Halle, but her makeup lately is just too … brown. It’s aging her. And girlfriend, please put some color on your lips!

    • marlie

      I would legit kill someone to have her legs though.

      • ShaoLinKitten

        I would legit kill someone to have her entire bod. She is slammin’.

    • DeTrop

      That hammock has my name on it. I love it.

    • Dagney

      Muscles FTW.

    • Liz

      She stole that first dress from the Cloud Atlas site.

    • demidaemon

      The first dress has way too many thingamabobs (I am so f-ing surprised that this word made it past the Mozilla spellchecker!) and flyaways on it for me to like. Also: Borderline beige.

      I actually really like the second look.

    • nannypoo

      That second dress was really unflattering. The lesson to be learned here is that white panels on your hips make you look wide.

    • what not

      It’s too try-hard for breezy.

      Sometimes I’m glad I was never a great beauty with a conventionally hot body, a la Halle or J.Lo, because they seem stuck in a tight, hot, diva (for J.Lo) clothing mold. I prefer having the mental freedom to play around with my style.

    • fursa_saida

      I actually kind of like the hammock.

    • e jerry powell

      Gymnastics? In that dress?

      Wow.

    • Mothra

      Oh. I was wondering where my organic hand tied unbleached market bag went off to.
