It doesn’t happen all the time when a lady becomes larger than life compared to the initial foray into pageantry that made her a recognizable face and name both nationally and internationally.
Halle Berry was the Miss Ohio during Miss USA 1986 when Christy Fichtner won. She was 1st Runner-Up, a placement that automatically sent her to Miss World that year.

Halle has come a long way from her days as a beauty queen. She got her TV and movie break in Hollywood. The rest is history. She has become one of the finest American actresses, especially after winning the Oscar Best Actress for “Monsters Ball” last 2002. And her longevity in the business spans up to now. The acting talent is pure and engaging. She never runs out of projects and has enjoyed an enviable status as one of the more outstanding African American personalities in the field of entertainment.
