Halle Berry's Maternity Style
Halle Berry's Maternity Style
There was never any doubt that Halle Berry would be a stunning mother-to-be. But how would the star best known for a peek-a-boo Oscar dress handle the challenge of a maternity wardrobe? "It's a perfect time to be pregnant because everything in fashion is loose-fitting with an Empire waist," Berry told In Style.
Here's how to stay cool and comfortable during a hot-weather pregnancy-Berry added white and gold accessories to a breezy lace dress from Catherine Malandrino.
She might want to hold on to this formfitting YaYa tank dress: As she said on Oprah, "We're hoping, right after this one, to do it again."
Berry stayed chic while running errands in a loose white sundress. She finished the look with a tie-front cardigan and flat sandals.
The actress, here in Valentino Red, is sure of her style and even more confident in her decision to become a mother. "Gabriel [Aubry] and I are beyond excited and I've waited a long time for this moment in my life," Berry told Access Hollywood.
Her character in Things We Lost in the Fire gave Berry some insight into her upcoming off-screen role. "I think it validated that I was meant to be a mother because every day I dealt with the character as a mother and thinking as a mother," Berry told Oprah. "It let me know that I must be a mother." The actress hit a premiere in a pair of Calypso slips under a cashmere cardigan from Minnie Rose.
Berry looked extra-feminine at The Late Show With David Letterman in a lace Galliano dress. Speaking of girly...does the couple know the baby's sex? "'Isn't She Lovely' by Stevie Wonder has been playing a lot in our house," Berry told In Style. "And for some reason, that song keeps coming up on my iPod too-even though it's on shuffle. We're like, 'It's a sign! It's a girl!'"

Berry wore this electric number to the London Film Festival. "I wear a lot of Versace," she told In Style. "The designs allow a woman to look sexy without feeling trashy. Versace knows how to push that limit right up to the edge."
Berry dazzled on the red carpet in a floor-length black halter dress from Roberto Cavalli. Bold gold earrings and a chunky cuff completed the look.
Berry wore a bold graphic Roberto Cavalli dress to a Things We Lost in the Fire screening. She credits a second-trimester burst of energy for helping her handle the hectic movie-promo schedule. "I know it will change in the third trimester, but right now I just have so much joy and energy that I feel like I've already done 12 things today," she told In Style. "I can just go and go and go."
Very few pregnant women can pull off a Dolce amp Gabbana bustier dress, but Berry was up to the challenge: "I have nothing against maternity clothes," she told us. "I love fashion. I just want to keep my sense of style while I’m pregnant."
Berry showed showing off her changing form in a loose-but not maternity-Temperley London dress.
