Bond Girls, bonding. We don’t know what Naomie’s saying, but that last shot is really cute.

Style-wise, they make an interesting pair, just for being so different in their approach. Neither of them are setting us on fire for being really interesting or fashion forward. They both chose basic shapes in bright colors, uncomplicated hairstyles, clean faces and minimal jewelry. But Halle’s working a very laid-back, tousle-haired, I-could-be-poolside L.A. sort of take and Naomie’s very much the Chic English Girl with her shiny-haired perfection and texturally interesting Burberry minidress. They’re both working the style that suits them best, but we’re partial to Naomie just for being the more polished of the two. We’re not big fans of Halle’s shoes and we hate the cuff, which looks like electrical tape wrapped around her arm.

    Halle is Halle so she can never look BAD but I’m not loving this look. Ms. Harris looks impeccable as usual!

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      True. Halle will never look bad, but this hair is not the most flattering style for her.

    • livesarah

      Naomi Harris has done a lot better lately than that dress, but she is definitely the winner here.

  • Jessica Freeman

    Halle Berry, you are not Tina Turner. Stop it with the hair.

  • I hope Grace Jones was there to bring the fierce.

    I don’t know. I think Halle is too beachy for something called a Tribute.

    • Shawn EH

      Looks like no Sylvana Henriques or Grace Jones, but Gloria Hendry and Trina Parks were there. Is that everyone? Six women of color over 24 or so films?

      • fursa_saida

        I was seriously wondering whether they had enough to build this event around, sadly.

      • MilaXX


      • Sounds about right – add half a dozen Asian women.

        • Shawn EH

          You Only Live Twice sort of skews the results there, I suppose.

          • Plus Man with a Golden Gun and Tomorrow Never Dies.

    • j_am

      My first thought, exactly… where was Grace Jones??

  • tryinnottobetoojudgy

    That red dress!! To die for. It may not be fashion forward, but it is beautiful and Naomie is wearing the f-ck out of it!! I honestly didn’t even notice Halle. That’s right! I did not notice Halle Berry because Naomie Brought It.

    • Tatiana Luján

      The red dress looks SO MUCH CUTER with those flats!

  • beckly

    The two of them together are more than the sum of their parts, and given how often people appear here together looking like a complete mismatch of sartorial intent, I’m really enjoying this. Although a narrow chain belt would have defined Halle a wee bit better so she didn’t float away.

  • Judy_J

    Halle’s hairstyle is not flattering, in my opinion. It make her look, dare I say, old. And the dress looks like a swimsuit cover up. I usually approve of anything she does, but I’m not on board with this look at all.

    • Shawn EH

      Halle’s been going through some stuff, ya’ll. I’m cutting her some slack for still looking as hot as this.

  • Fan

    Halle’s dress looks cheap and wrinkled.

  • Anna

    I’m happy she isn’t showing us her bra again, but excruciating-looking sandals aside, Halle Berry’s dress looks kinda frumpy and un-flattering standing next to Naomie Harris’s.

  • Ssquared1105

    Soon I hope there is a bond woman class photo with them ALL together.

  • random_poster

    I love that Naomi changed her shoes for the presentation part. That red dress is gorgeous.

  • marlie

    I like both looks. They’re perfectly suited to each of the ladystars’ personal styles (even though Halle’s is definitely pool-adjacent). Also, Naomie has legs for days.

  • Karen B

    I feel Hallie is working the “midst of a celebrity crisis, so don’t mind me” minimal look

    • leahpapa

      Yeah, what *was* that?

    • Misha

      Karen B! You nailed it. She dressed the way I do when I have to go to work but I’d really rather be under my covers. All things considered, she looks fantastic.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I am getting that vibe from this look, too. The dress is rather beachy, but it’s a lovely color for Halle.

  • Kaonashi

    Halle looks kinda casual. Naomie looks fantastic. Love how she changed to flats…they look cute!

  • Tiff79

    Naomie is rapidly becoming a style icon for me. She just makes it look effortless (yesterday’s macramé misstep aside). I am seriously coveting those shoes.

  • Gatto Nero

    Only Hallie can work what is essentially a blue tent.
    Magical powers.

  • Lilah

    How come Naomi is wearing different shoes on stage?

    • AndieJay

      Maybe because she’s paying tribute to Hallie and didn’t want to be taller? That’s only a wild guess.

      • Lilah

        Or maybe they were really uncomfortable.

  • Cloveradams

    These two women are so extravagantly beautiful together that a scrolldown seemed beside the point.

  • Frank_821

    Is it just the two of them? Where’s Grace Jones? Where’s Gloria Hendry from Live and Let Die?

    • Shawn EH

      For real! I want all my black girls, get on it CAAM!

    • MilaXX

      Trina Parks & Gloria Hendry were there, Grace Jones was not but was included in the tribute.

      • Imasewsure

        Grace Jones is too fierce to show up for this kind of thing… I’d like to think that she laughed like a sexy Bond villain when she received the invitation and fed it to her tiger in lieu of a formal RSVP

  • mmebam

    Bond Girl Tribute RCR, pleeeease!

  • Stuart Miller

    That blue disaster is a schmatta if I ever saw one. And (dare I say this?) what were TLo thinking? I thought they would HATE it and they are being so very respectful. If ANYTHING deserves real bitchery, it is that dress.

  • rubyclaire

    Halle looks great to me, hair, dress, everything. Naomie, too. Two different ways of being beautiful.

  • CPK1

    Halle’s hair is looking a little out of control. Small birds may be nesting in there

  • MilaXX

    I prefer Halle’s look. I appreciate her sort of California easy breezy look. I think it’s refreshing not to see her leading with her tits or legs which I suspect would have been rather expected of a Bond girl.

    • Miyanda Nehwati

      Yeah I find Halle’s look refreshing, lose the cuff and I’m on board.

    • Skwirrel76

      With Halle’s look, I don’t really care about the dress or the hair in and of themselves…I do care that its different, laid back, and not aggressively insisting that she be seen as hot as any other mid-twenties starlet (cuz UNNECESSARY!!!) Even her makeup is more relaxed. Hallelujah. I’m so pleased with this quiet triumph I don’t even notice Naomie Harris in this post.

  • Janet B

    Halle’s dress belongs poolside. Almost any other dress would have been more appropriate.

  • kimmeister

    Halle’s makeup needs a rethink.

  • numenah

    Really dislike that color on Hallie. Makes her look ashy.

  • ashtangajunkie

    I love Naomi’s dress. It’s very cute.

  • Ind Prod

    God. they’re just so gorgeous that they can get away with things other people cannot.

  • Little_Olive

    Whoa that is a LOT of hair on Halle’s head. Sad that the one time she’s not wearing one of her “I’m hot” numbers she goes for a mullet-hemmed sack.
    Oh well.

  • Imasewsure

    I would love Halle’s look if it didn’t have that mullet hem… either long or short please, but not both

  • GillianHolroyd

    I didn’t notice it at first because the blue makes for a good contrast with the red but that shade of blue is not doing anything for her.

  • KittieLynnNYC

    Not feeling that hair on Halle at all. Too big, and too wiggy.

  • LJCdoc

    Is it just me or is this like the zillionth time this week I’ve seen Hallie’s shoes, which were hideous to begin with the first time?

  • evave2

    Naomie is wearing a high set of heels for her first shots and then it appears she switched to flats in later views. Confuses me.

    Both ladies look very nice.

  • Meg

    Halle Berry is in a color y’all and she looks cute! So thank god for that. Naomie has raised her standard so much that looking this good is just an everyday look for her

  • sutash

    Naomie changed to flats!!! Love that

  • Beto

    Halle, go back to your house and change your cute dress for another one that combines with that hair or go back to your house and change your hair that goes with that cute dress. Your decision: that hair or that dress but not both. Naomie, basic but gorgeous, attagirl.

  • jif

    They both look fine, but where’s Grace Jones?

  • steph

    Halle your shoe game needs work.
    Naomi love the dress and the look.

  • Keyanita

    I’m curious. How many black women were at the Black Women of Bond Tribute? Were there actually enough black women in Bond movies for this event?

  • I do really like that colour on Halle though.

  • littlest dragon

    I find this so fascinating because Halle’s go-to for years was simply to shoot for “hot.” So much so that we all criticized her for it forever. Now she gets honored as an iconic hot woman character and she wears…..a tent.

  • OrangeChia

    Naomie looks cute. Crazy looks the part.

  • kerryev

    I love a red lace dress? GTFO.

  • Monabel

    Neither one looks as good as she could.

  • shelley514

    Naomie changed out of her ankle strap 4 inch sandals and into her flat comfort shoes. She’s like “fug that trynna be cute ish.” 🙂
