The Simply Luxurious Life®: Halle Berry – Vogue US – September 2010  

August 12, 2010

Halle Berry – Vogue US – September 2010

Are you ready? 726 pages of fall fashion.  A tremendous increase from last year’s September issue of 584. The September issue of Vogue has been revealed and will be officially on newsstands August 24th.

Photographed by Mario Testino, styled by Tonne Goodman and interviewed by Jonathan Van Meter, Halle Berry appears on the cover with a Anna Wintour-esque bob in a bevy of rich, lush designs. The above photo is without question my favorite, as she poses in an Escada dark-plum velvet dress with knotted open back.

Berry, 43, is the first black woman to appear on Vogue’s September cover since 1989 when Naomi Campbell became the first on the coveted September edition.  Prior to Campbell, Beverly Johnson, in 1974, graced the cover Vogue cover, followed by Oprah Winfrey (November 1998), athlete Marion Jones (January 2001), Halle Berry (December 2002), model Liya Kebede (May 2005), actress Jennifer Hudson (February 2007 and first lady Michelle Obama (March 2009).  

In explaining why the Academy Award winner finally agreed to do an interview she states, "What that means for a woman of color and what that means in the fashion world, what that means to pop culture, there was no way I could say, 'No, I'm not going to be on the biggest issue of the year.'"

To read the full interview and see the entire collection of images, click here. And on a tangent note, the documentary The September Issue which goes behind the scenes to show how Anna Wintour and her team at Vogue put together this most sought after fashion issue, will air on A&E this September 25th at 10pm eastern time, so be sure to set your TiVos/DVRs.

I think she looks beautiful 98% of the time...her hair is a very different look for her,but again it works on her. Curses :)

Miss Halle looks gorgeous! Can't wait to read a copy soon.

I wanted to let you know that my blog button is finally fixed and ready for us to swap as you requested. I changed the look of my button altogether. I'm going to grab and add yours to my site now! :)

Warmly,
