Halle Berry’s extreme cutout dress at the FiFi Awards: hot or too revealing?


Halle Berry was at the Fifi fragrance awards awards last night in a draped black dress with an asymmetric angular cutout around the side of her stomach. Apart from the bizarre middle of the dress she otherwise looked flawless. I love her stacked gold hoop earrings that match the gold detailing on the dress. Her other accessories, a chunky black ring and clutch, are minimal and just serve to highlight how gorgeous she is. She wore very understated strappy heels and overall she worked that look. If she would have just picked a dress that covered her stomach she would have knocked it out of the park. As it is, I keep staring at her paler stomach and noticing that it doesn’t match the rest of her skin tone. Cutout dresses are all the rage now, but usually the panels aren’t as wide and showy as this one.



Fergie was also there in a jarring yellow flowing gown with a single sequin strap running from the bustline to the neck. It wasn’t her worst outfit, but the color had green undertones that didn’t flatter her. Plus it looks too dressy for this event. Her makeup was pretty and neutral, but her hair looked limp and messy, like it was just air dried.



Kate Walsh wore a burgundy strapless cocktail dress accented with a skinny black belt. She looks really hot here and like she put some thought into it and didn’t try too hard.


Mary J. Blige was in a fitted floor length white sequin gown. I think she overdid it with the accessories, but it’s a pretty dress and I see what she was going for.


Padma Laksmi had on a busy strapless fuschia number with a sweetheart neckline. I don’t like it from far away but when you zoom in it’s actually quite striking.

    Hale looks amazing. A perfect 10.

  2. fannomore says:

    HB looks very old style toni braxton..everything old is new again?

  3. ohcutemissa says:

    Too much! Smacks of desperation.

  4. gloaming says:

    Love the belt on Halle’s dress but overall I think it’s too young for her. I know she has a great body but maybe if the cut out was smaller I’d like it.

  5. Dee says:

    I don’t care for Halle’s crazy but DAMN she’s hot. 44 freaking years old giving most of the Hollywood s-tart-lets a run for their money. I’m well impressed.

  6. brin says:

    Yeah, Halle looks really good and actually they all look good.

  7. gee says:

    Halle’s look is desperate.. she can look good in anything, but she is too old to look like a club kid, she needs to grow up style wise. You can still be sexy at 40, but don’t try and look sexy-at-20-at-40.

  8. Yibis says:

    Does anyone else think Fergie’s boobs look “veiny” like she’s pregnant? Usually when a woman has those blue veins that can be seen by all, it means something…

  9. machiavelli says:

    Halle: perfect if she were a bit younger.

    Padma Lakshmi: stunning! I don’t particularly care for what she has going around her mouth – in all her pics. Well, it is not as bad as Kiera Knightly.

  10. Micki says:

    Halle’s dress is like a posh beach wear.

    I don’t even get a CHANCE to forget how hot she is with all her clothes recently.

  11. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    I love Halle’s dress. I normally wouldn’t like something like that but its badass. I like it. I think all the women look pretty good but I hate the print on Padma’s dress.

  12. ladybert62 says:

    They all look good except for the last two pictures.

  13. whitedaisy says:

    Halle would look lovely in anything; but she should dress in something that exudes an inner-confidence. (Which she clearly does not have.)
    All of her revealing outfits just scream insecure and desperate for attention.

  14. RHONYC says:

    @ ohcutemissa

    you said it sister!!!

    cut out mid-drift +

    front slit up to her cooch +

    spread open legs yellin’ to the world…”see meeeeee, even without Gabrielle Aubry my vagina’s stiiil hooooot!” =

    desperate. desperate. desperate.

    funny, when she broke up with Eric Benet she was pullin’ the very same stunts.


    let’s pray that child of hers doesn’t develop her low self-esteem, geez. πŸ™

  15. Ari says:

    Halle looks great but yes I am staring at all her multi-color body parts lol…

    MARY!!! OMG haha love seeing her πŸ™‚

    Padma is awesome

  16. Quest says:

    Halle always looks great and has a great bod, I think she can turn it down a notch with the cut outs.

    Fergie boobies are scaring the shit out of me (sorry) – baby wipes. Liked the dress but not the color on her much.

  17. fabchick says:

    I like Halle’s dress. Just wish it was a little longer to compensate for the middrift. I still can’t get over Fergie’s new face. no words.

  18. Blue says:

    I think they all look great!

  19. Your mama says:

    Halle can work it! She looked the best out of all of them. Kate’s dress was nice too, but no WoW!

  20. Mizz Tickles says:

    I agree with fabchick – halles dress would have looked better if the bottom part was longer. Padma rocks that pink frock – love it!

  21. Eve says:

    Berry has a great body, too bad I can’t look at her face anymore without thinking about what she did recently.

    By the way, I want Padma Lakshmi’s dress.

  22. jo says:

    RHONY you are right on! She is desperate and can’t stand her.. I still can’t get over her on Oprah years ago sitting there with her nipples sticking out no bra crying about what a victim she is/ was re dave justice

  23. Isa says:

    Halle’s beauty and body KILLS me. It’s not fair that such beauty should belong to someone so crazy!

    I love Kate Walsh’s smirk. She always looks like the cat that ate the canary.


    Padma’s dress looks like it should be made out of little plastic parts.

  24. MeriJaan says:

    She certainly rocks that dress! Not liking the shoes tho.

  25. DGO says:

    I love that dress on Halle, but for the skirt. If it had no opening, and fell straight to the ground, floor length, she’d look much more elegant.

  26. Cheyenne says:

    Love Lakhsmi’s dress and she had sense enough to keep the accessories to a minimum with that print.

  27. Julie says:

    God Halle looks cheap and yes, very desperate. Since the baby daddy drama and all her nastiness, I honestly don’t find her as beautiful. Pretty is as pretty does.

  28. NayNay says:

    Hot damn!!!!! She looks amazing.

  29. Cali says:

    I am so sick of this woman and her HOOOTTTT bosy πŸ˜‰

  30. sunseeker says:

    Hate her legs, mine are a little like that but longer, hate mine too.
    Yes, desperate come to mind.
    I always think after 35 year old skirts not quite so short.
    My husband says “No waist, toned but short body, nothing sexy about her. Likes woman to have curves and some softness. Thank God.

  31. really says:

    Sad frankly, halle is not dressed age-appropriate at all! Looks ditwit floozy, and her stomach is paler, sooooooo true! Uneven color with frog legs.

    Her insecurity shows she has not grown as an actress or a woman (44 years old).

  32. skibunny says:

    What’s age got to do with it? She looks amazing! I’ll give her a 10.

  33. Solveig says:

    Halle is beautiful and has a great body, but the dress screams DESPERATE and it’s more suitable for a party near the beach than an award gala.

  34. Justaposter says:

    The dress would have been great if she wasn’t flashing her panties..

    Hey does anyone else think that Padma and Halie would be BFF’s in real life.. I have a feeling they are both cut out from the same ‘crazy cloth’.

  35. serena says:

    What are you all saying?

    Halle rocks that dress. She can pull it beautifully, hell, If anyone of us had a body like hers we would jump in that dress.

  36. RHONYC says:

    @ serena

    uhh, ye-AH! when i was, like 25!!! πŸ™

    ‘older-gal-thinking-she’s-still-a-spring-chicken’ is a syndrome.

    Jennifer Aniston has been diagnosed with it, as well as Demi Moore & Sharon Stone.

    this is becoming an epidemic people.

  37. danielle says:

    I think Halle looked gorgeous, I only think the skirt shouldn’t have gone up like that in the front, to keep the focus on the cutout. She has an incredible body. Actually liked all the dresses, except Padmas (shudder).

  38. Kim says:

    Halle is such a mess in real life. She is DESPERATE for attention hence why she dresses like a hooker on the red carpet. She always wears way to revealing, tacky clothes for a woman her age — especially a mother.

    RHONYC- Exactly! So embarrassing for older women to dress like this! Past 30 put it away ladies! You dont have to be a conservative prude just have some class.

  39. Alix says:

    Halle’s and Padma’s dresses = A+

  40. WHYSOBITTER? says:

    so only young women can dress slutty? isn’t that sexist? if she looks good, then who cares. Halle looked better than anyone their. and showing your stomach isn’t revealing at all. ask women who wear saris.

    most of the women commenting sound so bitter and jealous. it must crush you to know that you’ll never look half as good. no matter what your age is. haha.


  41. adam says:

    Halle is fine. She’s a timeless beauty.

    And no matter how young whore-han and kei$ha are they will never look as hot as halle and sophia and be able to pull of dresses like this.

    youth means nothing. beautiful women are timeless.

  42. janna says:

    halle lookin like a desperate old hag! any more tweakin her face and she’ll look like a jackson!!

  43. Luls says:

    As they say, less ass & more class! (in Halle’s case, less vadge) πŸ˜›

    I think Fergie looks the loveliest of the bunch, despite her somewhat limp hair. LOVE her dress! <3 (Hint to Halle; show off only 1 ur assets at a time, especially at 44.)

  44. eternalcanadian says:

    It is my humble opinion Halle who will be 45 in August has serious issues about attention and feels she is not getting the attention she deserves so she compensates by wearing inappropiate clothes that call attention to her body, not her mind or acting abilities. πŸ™‚

  45. beanie says:

    She looks fabulous. I don’t see somone “young” in that dress, it’s to sophisticated (think old school Halston) I don’t think it shows to much skin either. She is in a business where your face and your body is what sells you, so go for it, Halle.

  46. Hakura says:

    I definitely don’t think it’s too revealing. She’s not putting the ‘goods’ out there for oggling. But I absolutely HATE this dress. I’m a little obsessive about ‘balance’ to begin with, but that’s not what I think is the worst in this case.

    It actually cuts in such a way that Hale looks especially ‘thick’ in the middle, with almost no curve at all. (Which we all know she was in spades.) The design sucks in my opinion to begin with, but I do agree that the style is a bit too young. She can have fun & still look elegant. I wouldn’t go so far as to call her ‘desperate’, though.

  47. paul says:

    As always Halle is sad, why do we even talk about this loser, she used that gay man to have a kid because he is white, and she acts bipolar, those legs look sad, eat some chicken your sugar will get the best of you old lady. We all know she can not act, in hollywood they know she is a ho and has no talent at all. Oprah let her tell all those lies on her show. Glad to see Oprah go. Halle in hollywood you are old honey. but you can stand to lose 30 more pounds.

  48. betty says:

    Don’t be a hater because Halle is hot.A lot of women young or old could not wear that dress and look classy.Her skin and makeup is natural looking and flawless.

  49. D says:

    if you go it flaunt it she still looks absolutely amazing but yeah the pale skin on her stomach a bit weird do you think she used fake tan?
