Hollywood star Halle Berry has been keeping a relatively low profile since her high-kicking adventures in the 2004 flick Catwoman, but the Oscar-winning actress now looks set to explode back into the spotlight with two new movies and a stunning advertising campaign.

The 39-year-old was looking characteristically radiant when she was snapped on the set of her latest film, Perfect Stranger, this week. And although she was casually dressed in a quilted coat and light blue shirt when she was photographed in New York, the popular performer is every inch a Tinseltown bombshell in her ads for Versace.

Halle shows off her enviable curves in a figure-hugging white gown in the newly released photos, which will soon be gracing billboards and magazine covers around the world. "She represents everything that is great about this collection," said the label's boss Donatella Versace. "Someone who loves colour, has a real sensuality, who is strong yet feminine and who is a real woman who has lived."

"For me she is easier to relate to and more relevant than a model and of course she looks simply beautiful in the clothes. Furthermore I have known Halle for many years and have always admired her determination and her professionalism."

Renowned photographer Mario Testino was behind the campaign, which sees the Monster's Ball actress follow in the footsteps of other showbiz beauties such as Demi Moore and Christina Aguilera. And 2006 is sure to be a big year for Halle, as she is also reprising her role as Storm in the enormously popular X-Men series.
