Halle Berry in Pucci at the NAACP Awards: gorgeous or tacky?


These are some photos of the red carpet for the NAACP Awards, which were Friday night in LA. Halle Berry was one of the biggest names there, which I could have predicted. Ever since Halle and Gabriel split up, Halle has been going to the opening of an envelope. Seriously, she must be saying yes to every event she gets invited to. Anyway, Halle was there and she wore this… odd Pucci gown. I actually love the cut of it – I like that Halle is mostly covered up, and yet there’s a lot of boob showing. I love the long sleeves, and I love the slinky feel. But I hate the fabric. Pucci is known for their garish and sometimes enchanting prints, and this print kind of sucks. But Halle’s makeup and hair looked pretty good:


Also there – Sofia Vergara in Dolce & Gabanna black strapless. It’s a simple silhouette, but Sofia makes it pop. She looks so pretty.


Kerry Washington, and I don’t know who did the dress. It looks rather bridal to me, but I can’t get over what this girl did to her face. She looks hellishly jacked.

    ooooo look there’s my girlfriend again with the bigass……. colgate grin <3
    helllooo sofia!!! :D

    I think Halle Berry’s dress is kind of “jacked”. Let’s see: strategic cut-outs? check. Skintight? check. Maximum boob exposure? check. Is Halle going to be the next Sharon Stone? Sharon had a period where she showed up at everything and always wore the most bizarre stuff. And it would appear that Nahla is getting to know her nannies a whole lot better these days….maybe oily frenchman insists that they go out a lot so he doesn’t have to stay home playing “dad”.

  4. Bella Luna says:

    Kerry’s dress really looks bridal

  6. Toe says:

    Halle dress is perfect and she looks AWESOME in it!!

  7. julie says:

    Halle’s dress is gorgeous, really love it

  8. whitedaisy says:

    Tacky and desperate. I am so over her with her crazy a** custody drama of lies.

  9. Days after Christmas says:

    I’m the first to rip Halle Berry for her character but girlfriend looks damn near perfect here. She makes the 40s look like the prime of a woman’s life.

  10. Crash2GO2 says:

    I think Halle makes it work.

  11. weslyn says:

    Halle n Sofia look great to me..and Halle probably went because she was honored..just a guess

  12. Wow says:

    Damn you Halle, damn you! You are so hot! Love that dress!!!

  13. TeeTee says:

    Halle looks gorgeous, the print is cute.
    The print brings out her hair cut…and she has the body for it.

    Halle always attends the NAACP event,
    no the biggie.

    Sofia always gorgeous. Kerri really nds to stop whatever she is doing to her face.

  14. mln76 says:

    Yeah Halle looks gorgeous as usual. Sophia looks great too. But Kerry, why oh why did you eff up your face?

  15. Girafe99 says:

    I like it….except for showing her belly button, I have this weird thing about navels, I don’t like look seeing people’s navels, especially in that peek-a-boo fashion, makes my skin crawl

  16. Jilly Bean says:

    I do not get the fuss over Halle berry…. she is just so plain!!!

  17. Eileen says:

    That dress is frickin’ AWESOME…but I still can’t stand Halle.

  18. luls says:

    umm, can someone seriously explain to me exactly what everyone thinks is ‘jacked’ about Kerry’s face? she looks basically the same to me…………………
    (but i do sometimes miss these things things.)

  19. Jen D says:

    I started to hate it, but when I actually looked at her in it I loved it. I don’t really like her shoes, but she pulls it off so well. And she may be a lot of things, but she is an absolutely stunning woman.

  20. Rita says:

    Halle’s dress would look so much nicer against a black or single color back ground. As it is, it’s too busy or loud. I love the print and color but the “boob sling”/”navel portrait” doesn’t go well with the rest of the dress.

  21. lachica says:

    the dress should have ended just above her belly-button. she does not have an attractive navel.

  22. bagladey says:

    Two thumbs up for Halle’s dress.

  23. Fred says:

    Halle Berry looks GORGEOUS!

    Haters keep on hatin’

  24. Louise says:

    I think Halle’s dress is ok. Something is making me not love it and I don’t know what. Nahla has a father. I don’t understand why people get on single mother’s for going out. It’s not as if Halle is out every night.

    Something about Kerry does look off but I don’t think she’s had plastic surgery. She looks the same.

  25. brin says:

    It’s not her best, kind of loud. Sophia looks good.

  26. I RUN NEW YORK says:


  27. Cheyenne says:

    That dress is drop-dead gorgeous and she is wearing the hell out of it. Everything about it works — print, cut, fit, etc. I don’t care if she is all kinds of bitches, she looks fabulous.

  28. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    @Lulus, the two most obvious issues with Kerrys bad plastic surgery appear to be her top lip and the flattened bridge of her nose.

  29. Vee says:

    Halle’s dress is stunningly gorgeous! However, she is still a nutjob!

  30. DGO says:

    I LOVE Halle’s dress. I just think the lower half of her body looks stumped in it. On someone taller and less pear shaped it would be stunning.

  31. Jessica says:

    I think the whole package is supperb, georgous.I JUST LOVE IT

  32. devilgirl says:

    Like the dress. Her, not so much.

  33. JenJen says:

    I think Halle looks great. Why is Sophia there, she isn’t black.

  34. ordinarygirl86 says:

    Halle’s dress is so tacky to me, the print is WAY too busy and I hate how it’s so low cut that it’s below her belly button! I mean I’m all about seeing women not dress like school marms when they reach 40 but this is ridiculous!

  35. Miss Marie says:

    Sad that one is considered successful by their looks /wardrobe and not by the carnage left behind by those they’ve broken.

  36. phlyfiremama says:

    Halle looks gorgeous, the dress is incredible. The background clashes with the print, the dress itself is flawless. Good grief, the jealous jumping on the hateful bandwagon is the epitome of mob mentality in this forum.

  37. TrixC says:

    @DGO I can’t believe you just called Halle Berry pear shaped. If she’s pear shaped there’s no hope for the rest of us!

  38. Cheyenne says:

    JenJen: Why is Sophia there, she isn’t black.

    Jesus Christ, of all the idiotic comments… since when do you have to be black to go to an NAACP award ceremony?

  39. bite me says:

    sophia is considered colored

  40. House Mouse says:

    Afwull dress ! Halle has no taste, she wore the worst Oscar dress ever !

  41. Hakura says:

    I think the only thing I don’t care for in Halle’s dress is the print… The neckline design was very pretty, but the print took away from it. It all feels like it’s competing for your attention, too much going on.

    Plus I hate when a dress is dragging on the ground (when the intention isn’t a train), it could’ve been an inch shorter.

  42. motheroftheyear says:

    Halle looks amazing.

  43. Jaye E says:

    @JenJen..You don’t even have to be black to be a MEMBER of the NAACP.

  44. K-Burrrd says:

    gawd, i’m lovin Halle’s titty stretch marks.

  45. lila says:

    She is gorgeous! Too bad she is also a bitch so I won’t be spending my money on her.

  46. GradStudentEatingHotPockets says:

    I have to agree…the background is what is throwing off Halle’s look. A plain colored background would deft have made her dress pop more (and look better).

    If I can be 40 with a body like Sofia or Halle, then I’ll be beyond happy haha.

  47. SthBelle78 says:

    The older she gets the more desperate.That dress is beyond hideous not to mention tasteless.Anything to distract people from hearing more about the “other” Halle we don’t get to see.

  48. Maritza says:

    They all look fabulous! Neither dresses nor faces looked jacked up to me.

  49. lucy2 says:

    It’s alright, I’d like it more without the ring around the belly button, that’s just weird.
    I LOVE Sofia’s, and Kerry’s is pretty too, but Kerry has done…something. And it’s not good.

  50. lisa says:

    I LOVE that dress. one change I would make is the cutout at the navel. That makes it a bit tacky to me..

    the print is so 70′s and mod..love it.. she looks great. Her face looks a bit thin to me.

  51. Andie says:

    Yes, the dress Halle is wearing is vile, but she makes it work, because she is incredibly beautiful. Rumour has it she’s not a very nice lady..though I can’t confirm that as I’ve never met her.

  52. Liana says:

    I like it….except for showing her belly button, I have this weird thing about navels, I don’t like look seeing people’s navels, especially in that peek-a-boo fashion, makes my skin crawl


    Cosign on the navel cutout thing. Other than that, crazy ass bitch looks awesome!

  53. GT says:

    I think Halle looks gorgeous in that dress as do the rest of the women!

  54. I Choose Me says:

    Halle looks gorgeous. I would have liked if the neckline didn’t skim so far down to her navel and it could do without an inch of hem but she’s wearing the hell out of that dress.

    Re: Kerry Washington. Google her pics, her lips have always looked like that. Her face looks thinner and she might be doing the botox thing but I don’t think she’s had any surgery.

  55. Az says:

    I’m sorry but when it comes to Halle Berry, I can’t get past the crazy anymore. As for Sofia Vergara, this is EXACTLY how D&G want those sexy black dresses to look. Very old school Sofia Loren super womanly curvy sexy glamour. They should hire her for their ads.

  56. Tia C says:

    Gorgeous. Halle is a timeless beauty and I do love me some Pucci.

  57. kodak ink says:

    Awesome and she was deserved for this.

  58. NayNay says:

    I think Halle looks smokin’ hot in that outfit.

  59. samihami says:

    She’s batshit crazy, but her dress is gorgeous! If only Halle would grow out her hair she’d be beautiful.

  60. nanster says:

    Say whatever you want about Halle, but I think she could make a burlap sack look good.

  61. Oenix says:

    Great dress, color, cut and fit. It might have looked better worn with SANDALS instead of shoes.

  62. Beachi 206 says:

    There’s no way on earth that Halle Berry looks tacky–she is so gorgeous I wonder if she has to be a little nutty

  63. Majosha says:

    Good Lord, she’s beautiful. Wow.

  64. Missy says:

    The dress is okay, but Halle makes it look as good as anyone possibly could.

  65. SoOverIt says:

    @TRIXC. I was thinking the same thing. Wow and just wow at tiny ass Halle being called pear shaped. These females hate on each other more than the men.

  66. SoOverIt says:

    @Samihami. Have you seen Halle with longer hair? No way as striking and as beautiful as with shorter hair.

    Not all woman have to possess the long Barbie hair to be called beautiful.

  67. Cha Cha Loca says:

    Surely she has the body for it but very tacky considering the occaision.

    Halle is a very beautiful woman but she comes across as really, really boring and kind of dumb.

  68. Ari says:

    I would wear Halle’s dress all day every day on my big a$$ its nice as hell. I am over her short hair though I know its her signature style and easy to maintain but I am CRAVING her in some long hair.

  69. Jeannified says:

    Please! Halle looks fan f’n tastic!!! She always does! The dress is stunning, too!

  70. Camille says:

    Hate Berrys dress and I’m not a fan of the thing wearing it either.

    Sofia looks great. D&G should definitely hire her to wear their stuff.

  71. Mary Jane says:

    I think a little more “train” and LESS pattern would have made Halle’s dress PHENOMENAL — it’s just gorgeous now…
    Rock it, mama!

  72. cprincess says:

    she looks amazing!!
    (she crazy though)
