I totally agree with her Halle Berry’s decision to debut on the fashion bible “Vogue” September 2010 magazine issue…Kudos for her representation of style, beauty and grace during a time that some folks are feeling a bit salty towards the fabulous magazine…#JUSTSAYING
The decision was easy: “What (being on the cover of the September Vogue) means for a woman of color and what that means in the fashion world, what that means to pop culture, there was no way I could say, ‘No, I’m not going to be on the biggest issue of the year.’ ”
Where have you been, Halle Berry?
If one hadn’t read the tabloids lately, one might be forgiven for thinking that the Oscar-winning actress had thrown in the towel. After all, she has not given a proper interview in three years, nor has she made a big commercial film since X-Men: The Last Stand, four years ago. Aside from her Revlon ads and a perfume launch for Coty, Berry has lain low by the 2010 standards of never-let-’em-see-you-rest celebrity. Except, of course, most of us do see the tabloids, where Berry appears nearly every single day. Which means you already know two things: that Berry gave birth to perhaps the cutest baby girl ever, Nahla, with her very good-looking boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry, in March 2008; and that Berry and Aubry split earlier this year, an event that was covered as if Michelle Obama had decided to take the kids and move back to Chicago.
On a perfect day in June, Halle Berry and I are having lunch in the garden of Il Cielo, in Beverly Hills. She is wearing distressed jeans, a black sleeveless shirt, and a lot of silver jewelry made by a woman named Irit. “She is my new favorite thing,” Berry says, “my biggest indulgence of this year.” I start by asking her why she hasn’t given an interview in so long. “I was burned-out with having other people tell the story about me that they wanted to tell. I told my publicist, ‘I’m not going to talk anymore. I’m just going to live my life and be who I am.’”
