Halle Berry will reportedly grace the cover of American Vogue’s most critical issue of the year, the September issue. According to Fashionista, reports are certain from sources inside Conde Nast. This will be Berry’s first cover, and the first time an African-American will cover the September issue since Naomi Campbell in 1989.

The 43-year-old actress joins a small group of African American women who have covered the magazine. Berry joins First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Jennifer Hudson. Supermodel Beverly Johnson was the first African American woman ever to be on the cover.

People have already begun ramblings suggesting Berry is a safe choice for Vogue’s celebrated September issue. Other than her custody woes with her former beau Gabriel Aubry, reports are claiming the actress doesn’t have any exciting news to share with coveted readers.

On the contrary, the actress has the film “Nappily Ever After” scheduled for release this year. Not to mention, the famed actress would have released her latest fragrance ‘Reveal,’ in stores in August. Berry was awarded the ‘Fragrance of the Year, Women’s Popular Appeal’ on Thursday at the FiFi awards. More importantly, the actress is likely to open up about her latest failed relationship and motherhood.

Halle Berry is a Hollywood heavy-hitter and like any other Oscar-winning actress, a Vogue cover is a natural next step.

What are your thoughts? Do you think Halle Berry is a safe choice? Or are you excited Berry will finally cover Vogue?

  • Good for Halle! The article states that she will “join” a small group of African American women – this is actually Halle’s second Vogue cover. She actually landed her first cover after her Oscar win. Regardless – always glad to see a beautiful black face on the cover.

      You read my mind. Though, I wish I had read your comment before posting mine.

    “This will be Berry’s first cover, ”

    No, it won’t. It’s her second American Vogue cover. Remember, Dec 2003? It’s Vanity Fair that Halle’s never covered solo.

    It is significant though because Halle will probably have been only the second black woman to cover the all important September issue, the first having been Kiara Kabukuru back in 1997 (I think).

      * no, I’m wrong. It wasn’t Kiara that was the last black woman on the cover of a September issue of American Vogue. It was Naomi, back in like 1989 or 1990 or something like that.

  • Oh, black schmack……………..she is only a stunner to me.
