FOUND: Sexiest Black Woman Alive

Halle Berry was spotted out and about in Beverly Hills yesterday. TV One named her the new Sexiest Black Woman Alive. And it looks like she's not letting her new status take away her laid backness. More pics of the HB when you read the rest... Alicia Keys, Gabby Union, Iman, and several others were also on the list.

Ms.HB is fine...no doubt...but I'm sorry, she's been look'n a little "whupped" lately. Come on sweetie, comb your hair...put on a little lip gloss. I know run'n around after a baby can wear a woman out but every time I see a picture of her(not a red carpet shot), she looks like she just rolled out of bed and put on the first thing she picked up off the floor...and she's never smile'n...what's wrong momma?

James On Mar 11, 2009 at 7:55 pm | Reply | Quote Will you people please shut up with the whole “i’ve seen better looking women” BS. Okay, we get it! Some of you are taking this lists entirely too seriously. I agree with others that they might as well just pick Halle as the “Sexiest black woman of all time” and just not put her on those lists anymore because its not fair for others when she is on the list because she will always be #1. Therefor, they will have a different black woman everytime and then some of you will stop complaining. They are talking about industry women, not women out of the industry..use some commen sense. Bottomline is people find Halle attractive not only because of her looks, but because of the way she carries herself, her attitude (she doesn’t act all cocky), the way she is able to wear clothes effortlessely, plus she seems like a smart woman. I like her ability to keep it real and not be affraid to show that she is a real person with real-world problems. There are a lot of reasons other then her looks that people find her attractive. Some of you are up in here saying you’ve seen better looking woman (I doubt that), but does their attitude suck? Do they have anything else to offer the world besides their looks? There is much more to someone being “dime piece” then just thir looks? Also, sexiness comes many different ways, someone doesn’t have to dress like a hoochie or be popping their ass in your face to be considered sexy. Halle seems to have a quiet confidence, I like that. Besides, Halle never asked to be on these lists, I have seen nterview where she says that she doesn’t even think she is a beautiful as some people make her out to be…so I dont know why some of you are up in here trying to through salt on her game. Its not her fault she fine as hell. ------------------------------------------------------------ You took the words RIGHT out of my mouth!! I've always loved Halle!! She has always been the same woman her entire career. I will NEVER understand why WOMEN get sooooo upset whenever someone compliments this STRIKINGLY beautiful woman.

it says SEXIEST... so what

it says SEXIEST... so what has the colour to do with it?? sex appeal comes by the way you act and react not what colour you are... I just want to ask all of you who constantly repeatedly said here the darker skin ones are overlooked.. so who the fuck are you talking about.. who are these OVERLOOKED ones?????? then lets talk again... and someone said they have light eyes... which of these people on this fucking stupid list has light eyes.... non one of them chicks do... not halle not gabby not kerry not naomi, not alicia not angela bassett not paula patton not iman not alex... there are 5-6 chicks only i believe to have lighter eyes..... jesus.. its about sex appeal and most likely chichis and halle has sex appeal and chichis... aint nobody said this is the FAIRiest list ....

Halle's looks good and is

Halle's looks good and is very naturally pretty, but Nia Long is the most beautiful woman in Hollywood. I love Rih Rih, but I don't understand how anyone could honestly think she's pretty or even cute. And we've all seen Tyra and Alicia make-up free and those are def not good looks.

Lookit, from this Cleveland Brothers perspective, Halle's alright, but on the real, I done seen hotter sisters in the damn mall than her... I know folks just rave over her "beauty" but like I've said, I've seen tons better in face and body just scooting around town...

I have 2 things to say: 1. I LOVE that large leather coach bag..I need that in my life. 2. Beauty and Sexiness are 2 DIFFERENT THINGS!!!! Dear Halle is beautiful..no one will deny that..Sexy? Not in my eyes.. Sexy women aren't always the most beautiful..but they have that demeanor..confidence..something extra about them! Sexy is Lauren London..Meagan Good..Gabrielle Union..Alicia Keys..These women can make a man weak on their worst days..

That's what the media tells us every single day.[/quote] Thank you. I dont know why people are trying to pretend these issues do not exist (or they are deluded). Yes we are aware it's 2009, yes we are aware that all shades of black are beautiful. But you are naive if you cannot see that the media (and black & asian communities themselves) protray the image that being full black or being dark skin is somehow not desirable. Why do you think that in 2009 black and asian women are STILL lightening their skin?? WAKE UP.

I'm sure if most of you checked your family tree, a white person of native american would be hanging his/her foot out of your tree.

And on another note, half the Honorable Mentions are not 'light' by FAR. Jada, Iman, Gabby, Kerry?? REALLY?? Have you seen them? All BROWN and BEAUTIFUL. But again, not the point of this post. By your standards, only a dark Black woman should ever be named as Sexiest, Most Beautiful, etc. That's just as wrong as the ppl who actually do only think "light is right!!" Can we not celebrate that Halle is ALSO a beautiful Black woman, regardless of her skin tone, and stop trying to start ish for no reason?! Thanks :-)[/quote] That's not the point the first girl was trying to make. You should reread and understand before you comment. She is saying that there is definitely a greater light skin good hair value with our "most beautiful black women" and hardly any of them are darkskinned, or wear natural hair. OBVIOUSLY, that is what she was saying. Peace[/quote] My reading and "re-reading" skills are fine...Thanks for checking. But anyway, I understand perfectly well what you are saying. I, too, am a beautiful brown skin woman, so I understand first-hand that the white-washed media tends to portray lighter Black women as the only tv/movie/award-worthy Black women. I'm just as outraged as anyone when I see a truly talented, beautiful BROWN woman overlooked in favor of a mediocre light one. For me, beauty is about symmetry, bone structure, etc - not skin color. HOWEVER, what I disagree with is trying to take something away from Halle, who IS actually a truly beautiful BLACK woman - who just so happens to be light. Don't we all deserve credit when credit is due??[/quote] Nah...sorry mama her mom is a white woman. She is bi-racial... so I guess this also makes her equally the Sexiest White Woman alive.

[quote comment="448813"]She isn't black, was never black and never will be black. She is a bi-racial woman -- even if every single white person in the world calls her black -- she will still only be half.[/quote] Halle has always identified herself with the Black Community. She always reps for us. She has stated many times how her white mother raised two very black children. In her Oscar speech she thanked women of color who proceeded her. We are all biracial in one way or another but society in America will always view us as black

Halle is pretty of course;

Halle is pretty of course; but how predictable is it that a mixed race woman (who is as much white as she is black)is named the sexiest black woman alive? It's as if fully black women/dark skinned women are almost invisible in this world.
