… Halle Berry.
For many years, I was unable to identify a style icon. I loved bits and pieces from various women’s personal styles, but I never did land on a single person who dressed exactly as I wished to. But now? It’s Halle Berry. All the way. I am yet to find someone who does creative badassery any better, and her outfits always look comfortable, chic, and re-create-able.
Interesting proportions, asymmetry, amazing boots, mixed prints. Gah, I love it ALL.
Variations on a (truly fabulous) theme: Leather jacket, scarf/cowl, tunic, leggings, boots. I’ve had the photo on the left in my inspiration binder for almost five years. Love those Fiorentini + Bakers.
Drop-crotch pants, a studded belt, and a boatneck sweater. AMAZING. And neutrals all around, but never boring.
I’ve never cared much for red carpet style, and seldom see celebrity street style that inspires me. Halle doesn’t knock it out of the park every time, but even her oddly proportioned outfits look comfortable and interesting. She’s a stellar actress, supports 20 charities including domestic violence intervention, and at 49 pushes back on Hollywood’s tendency to ignore actresses over 40. Also? I feel like she’d be SO FUN to hang out with. And she loves French fries, so clearly we’d be friends.
Anyone else love Halle’s edgy-cool casual looks? Which one of these is your favorite?
