Halle Berry to Relaunch French Lingerie Line Scandale

scandale paris halle berry

Halle Berry is looking to promote femininity, sexiness and self-empowerment…through a line of undergarments.

According to Fox411, the Oscar-winning actress is reviving Scandale, a lingerie label born in France in 1932.

“We’ve taken this brand and revamped it,” Berry said in an interview Thursday. “But we’ve kept all the qualities of the Parisian sort of style intact.”

The collection of 10 bras and panties will be sold by Target, and while “rich with history and heritage,” will boast “a very good price,” said Berry, who, beneath her lacy dress displayed a black Illusion demi bra (less than $20).

Berry is an owner of the Scandale Paris line, launching here in 2015, and said she plays a hands-on role in design, declaring, “I think I have a pulse on what American women want.”

She agreed that, for guys, the choice of undergarments is largely a question of boxers or briefs. “But most women know that what you put under your clothes is the first step in making yourself feel good about yourself.”

Women buy lingerie mainly for themselves, she went on, quickly adding, “When they find something they feel good in, and that makes them feel sexy and feminine and empowered, their partners also reap the benefits.”

Berry also discussed her television debut over the summer in CBS’ sci-fi series “Extant.” For this film veteran, series TV, with its faster-than-film pace and longer-than-film hours, was “a rude awakening,” she confessed. But now she’s braced to resume production for next season in February.

Despite the excitement her entry into series TV ignited, reviews for “Extant” were mixed and ratings less than spectacular.

“That was disappointing, you might say,” she admitted, “but at least we got picked up. I think we learned a lot from the first season.”

She noted that many series take time to break through into long-running hits.

“I hope that will be our case,” she said.


Tatyana Ali Talks Being Excluded for Having ‘Good Hair’

tatyana ali

Tatyana Ali felt excluded growing up as a black girl since she had longer hair compared to other young girls — sensing as though she was different and flawed.

“It’s funny, when I was younger, it was something that set me apart, and not necessarily in a good way, from other girls that I knew. Not that I was made fun [of] but it felt like I was made to seem different. It’s interesting, the thing you think is a flaw,” Ali told Vlad TV.

Ali wished Chris Rock would’ve interviewed her for his comedy-documentary “Good Hair.” She wished she could’ve told the opposite side of the story of how having “good hair” in the black community can be damaging as well.

“When Chris Rock did Good Hair, I was like ‘Oh my gosh, he should have interviewed me,’” she CONTINUED. “Because I feel like there’s one side of the story, which he told really, really well. But then there’s the other side of the story.”

She added, “it’s boys and girls sometimes. You know you have, like, a group of cousins playing and you separate the children that way, you’re doing as much damage to the child you’re calling out for having ‘good hair’ as you are [the others] — because you’re creating this separation that’s not true.”

Ali grew up wishing she had hair like the rest of her family — instead of standing out for her long locks. She wanted her hair to be twisted out like her mother’s hair.

“I grew up wanting to be able to twist my hair and wear my hair like my mom did and my aunts did. Because I wanted to be like them, I didn’t want to be different. [Just that term ‘good hair’] is crazy,” she said. “Caribbean people do it even worse. They’ll say crazy things like, ‘Oh yeah, she’s so dark but she has good hair.’”


Beyonce Shows Off Her New Short Bangs


Beyonce is sporting a new do! She’s rocking short bangs as seen in Paris and London with her happy family.

Her super short bangs are reminiscent of her music videos with Lady Gaga, “Video Phone” and “Telephone” as well as her own video, “Why Don’t You Love Me.”

But some of her fans weren’t feeling her new look — calling out her bangs too choppy and short on Twitter, according to MadameNoire.

Here are some of the responses below:

A Twitter user said, “WTF…..@Beyonce bangs look like Blu cut them!!! Yall need to stop lying to that girl!!”

Another Twitter user said, “Beyonce just out here chillin with them Sailor Moon bangs,”

And another one, “Beyonce and these half of an inch bangs are so unacceptable…”

Nevertheless, Queen Bey managed to still turn heads as she rocked out her hairstyle on Tumblr as well — posing and showing off her new look.

North West Has a Stylist Tasked with Matching Kim’s Outfits

Kim Kardashian and baby North West attend the Givenchy show as part of the Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Spring/Summer 2015 on September 28, 2014 in Paris, France

Kimye reportedly hired a personal stylist/tailor for their 16-month-old daughter North West, with the sole task of coordinating outfits to match whatever look her mother is sporting during public appearances.

A source close to Kim Kardashian, 33, and Kanye West, 36, revealed to Grazia that they hired someone to make sure North West is dressed exactly like her mom on red carpets.

“The tailor, who is also paid to act as North’s stylist, works with Kanye and Kim’s styling team to create the toddler’s looks. Some are collaborations or commissions to designers themselves, and others created in-house,” the source explained.

It has also been revealed that North’s outfits are planned “well in advance” during meetings where any and all upcoming family appearances are discussed in great length.

North has a ton of clothes that match Kim’s to make sure she has plenty of options no matter what her mom decides to wear for each appearance, the source added.

“Bey the Light”
Words Beyoncé
Remixed by Forrest Gander

It’s my daughter, she’s my biggest muse.
There’s someone, we all find out soon,
more important than ourselves to lose.

I feel a deep bond with young children –
all those photos in my dressing room –
especially those who’ve been stricken,

Children I’ve met across the years –
they uplift me like pieces of moon,
and guide me, whispering in my ear

I’m turned to spirits, the emotions of others.
And I feel her presence all the time
though I never met my grandmother.

I learned at a very young age,
when I need to tap some extra strength,
to put my persona, Sasha, on stage.

Though we’re different as blue and red,
I’m not afraid to draw from her
in performance, rifts, even in bed.

I saw a TV preacher when I was scared,
at four or five, about bad dreams,
who promised he’d say a prayer

If I put my hand to the TV.
That’s the first time I remember prayer,
an electric current humming through me.

You call me a singer, but I’m called to transform,
to suck up the grief, anxiety, and loss
of those who hear me into my song’s form.

I’m a vessel for all that isn’t right,
for break-ups and lies and double-cross.
I sing into that vessel a healing light.

To let go of pain that people can’t bear.
I don’t do that myself, I call in the light.
I summon God to take me there.

Utopias, they don’t much interest me.
I always mess things up a bit.
It’s chaos, in part, that helps us see.

But for my daughter I dream a day
when no one roots for others to fail,
when we all mean what we say.
