I really would have thought that, of all the incredibly beautiful women over 40 in Hollywood, Halle Berry would be aging the most gracefully:

And she IS aging gracefully in terms of looking unbearably fantastic and youthful and she hasn’t done anything wacked out to her face — thank you, God — but man. Her body can carry this, but I sort of feel like there comes a point in a woman’s life where the bare midriff cocktail dress just isn’t appropriate anymore.  It was also, notably, less flashy on the runway, which makes me think she looked at it and thought, “Huh. I need to make this more naked.” Which simply isn’t true: Of all the women in the world, Halle Berry don’t need to resort to More Nakedness. She’s dreamy, and talented, and, most importantly, she doesn’t need to try so hard.
