There are few hairstyles that don’t look spectacular on Halle Berry from her close-cropped cut to her long wavy locks. But it’s rare that you see the Academy Award-winning beauty with an afro. She tried the look for Interview Magazine Germany and the result is nothing short of stunning.

In the series of pictures, which range from close-up beauty shots to high fashion photographs, Halle Berry rocks an afro with flowers, sunglasses, eye-catching earrings and bold prints.

The beautiful shots are reminiscent of Diana Ross and even Solange, according to several commenters online. They are so gorgeous in fact one has to wonder if Halle would ever consider embracing the look for a movie or red carpet event.

What do you think of Halle Berry’s shoot for Interview Magazine Germany, Clutchettes?

    She is so beautiful; always has been. Her natural beauty in only enhanced by her flaunting her natural crown unadulterated.

  • Beautiful Mic

    It’s a wig and/or weave, not her natural crown.

  • C

    I think that is a wig, but she still looks great. I like the second photo.

    Looks fake as hell.

  • Beautiful Mic

    Trust, if there wasn’t this reigning controversial about phenotype bias against certain features, like kinky hair, I doubt they would have chosen to use that hair texture in the shoot. This is how pop media is used diffuse social issues/arguments to point that they become ignored and disregarded again.

    I doubt her natural hair is that texture. We know it’s not that long, and hasn’t been for a while since she cut it.

    is she starting the angela davis campaign early? nice shoot

  • Thequietvoice

    You’re kidding right? Halle has a pixie haircut. This is obviously a wig. She looks good but it’s not her natural crown.

  • chicnoir

    Exactly C, I want to get an Afro textured wig after looking at these photos.

  • keepitreal

    She is such a natural beauty.

  • jamesfrmphilly

    i guess natural beauty is passé?

    I thought we ran you off this site in the other article you trolled?

    Get a life!

    That is ridiculous. We see pictures of Halle Berry on the regular and she has kept her hair about an inch or less long for years.
    Plus, looking at her childhood pics, which have also been in many magazines, her own hair isn’t even that texture (no, not b/c her mom is white but just looking at the fact the many old pictures from her past don’t seem to indicate that her natural hair not so kinky.)
    I mean, it’s funny b/c I remember the opposite happen when Tyra Banks first debuted her “natural” hair even though her childhood pictures clearly show puffy afro textured hair.
    And ditto with Oprah, who also had an afro in the 80′s but is not pretending that her hair is wavy.
    People have way too much invested in what others do to their hair. It doesn’t matter if Halle Berry relaxes or straightens her hair. This is just experimenting with a look, which is fine, but I’m not even sure why people get so excited about the rest.

    Halle is one of the few people who can do anything with their hair and still be absolutely stunning! Long hair short hair no hair straight hair Afro hair wavy hair! Go girl!

  • Pseudonym

    I’m confused. So, when afro-textured hair is not used you get mad b/c you feel ignored and now that they’ve used afro-textured hair you’re mad b/c someone paid attention to your complaints about being ignored and stopped ignoring you and that’s a bad thing?…Maybe I didn’t understand your comment?

  • The Other Jess

    she looks beautiful!

  • Trace

    Will she be getting her old more African nose back too?

  • Barbara2

    I for one am sic and tired of you Black females who keep shoving these White females/Black male “Mulattos” in our faces “Halle Berrys, et al. This all comes from Oprah and her Mammying the White lady on her show.

    Why can’t you Black women realize that we are not responsible for thee White man having “RAPED” us and manipulated us duing slavery aand Jim Crow. There are Black women who are ALIVE in their 60s and 70s TODAY who are vicctim of these rapes!!!

    People such as these Clutch writers ae constantly shoving these Black male/White Female offsprings in our faces as though we have to atone for our being “raped.”

    What about the slave masters who raped our little Black boys??

    Cluth, please stop shoving all these Black male/White female half breeds in our faces!!!

    What aout your own Black daughters!!!!! Help THEM!!!

  • Barbaara2

    Clutch, you are trying to promote your iea of what we should think aas Black women by only letting some ideas be put forth. YOU ARE WRONG!!!! Fortunately, there are other Black women sites/blogs who are truly trying to pomote what is liberating from slavery for Black women!!!


  • Beautiful Mic

    Employing individuals who don’t have certain characteristics naturally, but apply them synthetically does not constitute hearing my complaints.

    That’s still not fair, if there is a continued phenotype bias – those with only a certain range of natural features are employed, promoted, but instead you make them wear black face, prosthetic noses and bulky kinky weave to represent those who have these characteristics naturally…when there are plenty of talented individuals to chose from among those born with these features.

    That’s not addressing my complaint, that’s mockery.

  • Courtney J.

    Woah who emailed this to the crazies (looks at previous comments)?

    She looks beautiful. I love classic Hollywood glamour I wish I could go back to those prime Diana Ross days and experience the glitz first hand. Peace and love folks!

  • Ms. Vee

    That’s a beautiful wig. The only thing that would be better than that wig is a real black woman wearing a real Afro. Nonetheless, it’s a nice wig.

  • mrsmarieyoung

    I think she look great in all her pictures, even with her ‘whiter’ looking nose. She is a woman who has the RIGHT to enhance or alter her natural beauty as she see’s fit! Thats the benefit of free will and being a strong black woman.

    Go Halle! Afro, press n’ curl or short cut… your HAWT!

  • Lady P

    Apple, Thank you! Halle can wear her hair anyway she chooses. That is the gift of natural beauty. It doesn’t matter if your hair is long, short, afro, or curly; she can get away with it.

    I think those shoots are stunning!

  • apple

    i don’t think her hair is capable of making a real afro..maybe a wavy fro if they pick it out?

  • Ms. Vee

    Perhaps her hair can naturally afro, perhaps it can’t. Who knows. Thus i emphasized the usage of an actual black woman. Then there would be no question. ;)

  • Ash

    Wow I had no idea she got a nose job!? Maybe I am just out of the loop because I am young but I just googled her before/after pics. If that’s in fact true, makes me sad…. I think her old nose was cute! :/

  • Theantifash

    Living for this! It’s be be my second favorite editorial this year (closely following Yasmin Warsame, Flare Mag, Jan) I love her faux fro, and would rock one just like it in a heartbeat!

  • Theantifash

    HA! That first sentence was meant to read “It’s my second favorite editorial this year (closely following Yasmin Warsame, Flare Mag, Jan).”

  • justanotheropinion

    Wig, no wig, natural hair in pixie cut or straight weave, photoshopped or not, glam clothes from a photo shoot or every day casual street clothes, mixed race or not, straight in the head or a little off, serial marry-ier or sworn to never never marry again but engaged, Halle looks good for 45/46. Why judge? Just appreciate beauty. We should all be so lucky.

    A “real black woman?”

    Really? Who decides what constitutes a real black woman? How much black blood must one have to be considered “real?”

  • Child, Please

    Her nose hasn’t changed. No different than Beyonce, her nose has remained the same. Could there be bad photoshop jobs? Perhaps, but she has her original nose. Plus, make up will make it look different as well as the angle a person is shot at. It’d also be different to decipher if these people have had nose jobs in this age due to the aforementioned photoshop.

  • Ms. Vee

    Lets not play this tired game please. She has a white mother…shall i elaborated further? She is biracial. Face it. Nonetheless she looks great with the wig.
