First it was Madonna. Then it was Demi Moore. Now Halle Berry is dipping her toe in the Versace pool. Donatella Versace has chosen the Oscar-winning actress to head up her new line.
The new ads are being photographed by none other than Mario Testino in Los Angeles.
Berry said in a statement, “I remember the first time I wore Versace; it was a teal, figure-hugging cocktail dress. I’ll never forget it because I felt instantly in touch with my sensuality.”
Versace, beaming at her selection of the Hollywood A-lister said, “I’ve always chosen inspirational women to represent Versace and Halle follows in the steps of Madonna and Demi Moore. She represents everything that is great about this collection — someone who loves color, has a real sensuality and who is strong yet feminine and who is a real woman who has lived. For me, she is easier to relate to and more relevant than a model.”
The line debuts this spring.
