It’s a true rarity to see Halle Berry and her 14-month old son Maceostrolling along the sidewalks so imagine everyone’s surprise when they saw Halle, her actor husband, Olivier Martinez and baby Maceo indulging in a little Parisian stroll just a few days ago – how cute?!
In a recent interview with Yahoo Style, Halle admitted that she puts more effort in to what she wears thanks to her husband, who has taught her that French women wouldn’t dare run to the market in sweats.
French women would not put their sweats on and run out to the market. So I care more about what I wear out of the house, because if not, he calls me out on it.
[French women] put a lot of energy into their outerwear, but also their underwear. They’re not going to get caught in an emergency room without being prepared.
I am on the fence on this one folks. On one hand, I totally get his point – he wants his woman to look her best at all times and French women do tend to dress a little more formal than we do here in America. However, I believe that a woman should dress how she is comfortable as long as her breasts and butt are not on full display for the world to see. Some might say Olivier is being a control freak and some might believe that all women should take his wife. This is one of those cultural matters of opinions and since opinions are like assholes, and everyone has them, I want to hear yours! Comment below!
