Halle Berry‘s pregnancy is still in the early stages, but she’s already winning accolades from one top designer for her mom-to-be looks.

“She handles [pregnancy] pretty fabulously,” Michael Kors, 53, told PEOPLE Tuesday night at the TIME 100 Gala to celebrate the magazine’s list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World, where he was an honoree.

“I think the rules for pregnancy have totally changed, and if you look like Halle I think it all works.”

Even if she goes out wearing, say, a paper bag? “It all works,” he joked. “It’s all perfect.”

Just days after her pregnancy (and mini baby bump!) was revealed, Kors spent time with Berry, 46, through their work with the World Food Programme, and according to the former Project Runway judge she looked great in his designs — no need for maternity wear.

“Halle was wearing regular [Michael Kors] clothes; a lot of what we do has stretch in it,” Kors explained. “I always say, it’s clothing you can actually go out in, have a big meal and still look great at the end of the night.”

Along with discussing the actress’s maternity style, the designer was also excited to meet the other luminaries — from politicians to scientists to rappers — who were being lauded at the event.

“With the mix of people being honored tonight, I am incredibly flattered and honored,” Kors confessed.

Maybe Michael, but she doesn’t handle her entire life fabulously!!!! What a nut job she is!

Marky on

She hardly handles anything “perfectly” or “fabulously”. This woman needs “a raise, a promotion, and a move out of town”, and please, remember you are NOT Nahla’s only parent, or the only one who counts. She used to be gorgeous, but her personality is getting in the way…..JMHO.

She’s hardly perfect. Her attitude and behavior are ugly…

These Hollywood types are so confused…Motherhood is not about looking fabulous in maternity clothes – it’s about being a good mother.

I don’t know if its Jelously or people just being haters. I think Halle is Fabulous. Obviously a judge thought she should be the primary parent of her daughter. I know I would do what I had to do to protect my daughter. Stop hating on her.

I agree with Mr Kors. She looks fabulous I dont know why people are fussing about Kate Middleton.

Reesca on
