Halle Berry shows off her bump in a striped maxi dress: gorgeous or unflattering?

Here are some photos of Halle Berry out and about yesterday in Studio City. Halle stoppe by a Jamba Juice and got a frosty beverage. Fame/Flynet says Halle “looks ready to pop any day now.” Are we sure? I think she might have a few more weeks to go. I seem to remember doing the math a while back and for whatever reason, I thought Halle was probably due mid-October. We’ll see.

Anyway, I just wanted to talk about how great Halle looks. She’s had another beautiful pregnancy. I’ve got to wonder if Kim Kardashian is super-jealous. Jessica Simpson too. Halle is carrying so beautifully that she can wear these huge stripes and she still looks breezy and sexy. That’s a gift. Because these stripes would be incredibly unflattering on nearly anyone else, pregnant or not pregnant. I do love the cut of this dress though – I wonder if it comes in solid colors? I would like it in white, black, blue and red. I would wear it with a light camisole and a big purse. Sigh.

Halle also has a perfume coming out, did you know that? It’s called “Halle Berry Exotic Jasmine” and Halle worked with perfumer David Apel. Halle said: “I’m enjoying such a beautiful, pure moment in my life. Jasmine is such a timeless, beautiful floral note, and I loved the way the perfumer interpreted it as a modern take on a classic ingredient. I wanted this fragrance to be a reflection of, beautiful, yet empowered femininity.” In other words, Halle wants another revenue stream. That’s what all the ladies do when they need another income boost – they release a perfume. Some of the perfumes don’t sell that well, but sometimes they get a hit.

    Man she looks tired. I like the dress.

  2. aims says:

    I love the dress. Say what you want about her personality, but I do like her style.

  3. Mirna says:

    She is carrying beautifully, but let’s not kid ourselves, that is one fugly dress. Looks like a circus tent.

  4. Elodie says:

    I feel like she’s been pregnant like forever now… but the woman is glowing, like woa!

    That said, I always find it amusing when a celeb has a perfume coming out and they release such statements; the biggest laugh I had was with Brad Pitt and his Chanel n°5, not only the ad was ribs-cracking but when his PR people tried to string a bunch of intelligent words together to give the release statement some depth… okay bye!

  5. Sarah says:

    She’s beautiful as usual. Ugh, I remember being that pregnant… Twice was enough for me!

  6. Lila says:

    She seems like she’s been pregnant forever. Did they announce really early?

    She’s beautiful but I can’t look at her anymore without nitpicking and finding something tacky about her. This time it’s the bra hanging out. Before I would have overlooked it but all her drama has colored my opinion of her and how much slack I give her.

  7. Janet says:

    When is she due? The baby hasn’t dropped yet so it looks like another month at least.

  8. dena says:

    The real story is not how good she looked cause she always looks good. The real story is that she, Nahla and Olivier were pictured at the Grove and he wasn’t wearing those gawd-awful jeans!!! That’s the real story.

  9. Grace says:

    This isn’t her first perfume. An ex-boyfriend got me her “Halle Berry” scent for Christmas a few years ago. That one was not a keeper.

  10. QQ says:

    She is destined to Never look bad no matter what?! Gawd! Im so jelly of her body/clothes/hair Preggo or NOT

  11. tracking says:

    She looks absolutely wonderful. Love the dress on her.

  12. L says:

    She looks comfortable, but also like a tent.

  13. Dawn says:

    I think she looks wonderful, tired but wonderful. She always has had such great taste and style. When is this baby boy coming anyway?

  14. Trek Girl says:

    She looks great, and I love the dress. It doesn’t look like a tent to me.

  15. Gia says:

    Crazier than a bag of frogs, but drop dead gorgeous! Her and I are at the same stages in our pregnancies. I’m surprised how big she carries..by that I mean her stomach really sticks out. Hang in there Halle! Home stretch…

  16. RHONYC says:

    i don’t think you can compare Halle to either Kim or Jessica. she’s like 5’7″ and they’re both below 5’5″. height always makes you carry weight differently from shorter counterparts.

    that said…albeit she does look gorgeous preggers yet again, her belly makes me go ‘OUCH!’ for her. get on outta there Olivier Jr & give your poor mom a break!

    :lol:

  17. DGO says:

    How’d she blow up so fast? I saw pictures of her just last weekend and she was nowhere near as big. Is someone going the surrogate route?

  18. campbell says:

    Not a Halle fan.

    That being said, she is an awesome looking pregnant woman. And lI’m crazy about that dress! I would love to have the non-maternity version.

  19. Crabcake says:

    I don’t agree… I think she could look so much better than that. First, she needs some hair. Second, that mumu is massive and unnecessary. Third, she really doesnt look any different than Kim or Jessia did in their pregnancies. She’s carrying high and huge too. Both my pregnancies went past 41 weeks and I wasnt even remotely that large. All that said, Halle will look 400x better than I did post pregnancy, haha!

  20. someone says:

    Any chance it is twins and she didn’t announce it? She seems big.

  21. roxy150 says:

    Unflattering??? really, I don’t think she gives a crap on how “flattering” something looks, it’s how it feels–she is pregnant!!! OH my goodness I am beyond words on this article. Seriously.

  22. Courtney says:

    she’s carrying access fluid because she’s diabetic and boys tend to be larger than girls at least in utero most of the time but there are exceptions. give her a break she’s nearly 9 months they announced her pregnancy on April 5th at 12 weeks. also take into account the length of the baby I believe Nahla was 20in long when she was born and boys are usually longer but not always

  23. BreeinSEA says:

    She hasn’t dropped yet. She looks beautiful

  24. Wren says:

    I am as far along as she is and look as big & high. I am 5’6″. She looks great and tbh tight fitting clothing sucks at this stage of pregnancy, loose flowy dresses are so much more comfortable.

  25. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    She may be crazy, but she is gorgeous.

    And I am jealous, because I know that I’d be Kimk #2, if I ever get pregnant–I’m not even 5’2!

    Of course I wouldn’t try and stuff myself into clothes–the minute that stick showed positive, I’d be in sweatpants and a big tshirt–maxi dress if I wanna get fancy.

  26. Oyn says:

    I’m sure her “due date”/delivery is all planned out just like her IVF and gender selection was. She knows when she has to get ready.
    Of course she will make some sort of annoucement that she “naturally” went into labour blah blah blah.

    She looks amazing in this product placement for Jamba Juice!
