When we think of Halle Berry, the first word that comes to mind is "sexy." In fact, it might as well be her middle name. So, we can't say we were surprised to learn the actress is investing in and revamping Parisian lingerie line Scandale with her first 10-piece collection, retailing at $7 for panties and $18 for bras, debuting at Target on Oct. 27. Halle unveiled the lineup this morning at Ladurée in SoHo, New York, playing to the theme of "Parisian glamour and sophistication," which inspired the undergarments.
While she's not the only celebrity who's endorsed brands or started a company — she joins the ranks of Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Heidi Klum, who's launching a new intimates label with Bendon — the marriage between Berry and Scandale feels especially genuine.
"I understand that women want to feel sexy and beautiful. They want to have undergarments that are very functional, but to still feel beautiful when we take our clothes off. That's really important and that's a way to make women feel sexy and validated — all the ways we as women need to feel. And I love lingerie. It's always been important in my life. This is a very important endeavor that feels very in line with who I am," Halle said.
She doesn't need to prove that to us — one look at the collection below, along with some of her steamiest ensembles confirms she values body-conscious dressing and effortless style. Scroll through to see all the separates and the woman behind them, then let us know — would you try out Halle's lingerie, or do you feel sexy in the intimates you've already got on?
