In her newest film, “Kidnap,” Halle Berry plays a kick-ass mother who will stop at nothing to get her kidnapped son back. She brought some of that fierceness to the New York City premiere of the movie by honoring another strong woman: Michelle Obama.
Berry wore a T-shirt emblazoned with the former first lady’s likeness and the words “Michelle My Belle.” The shirt is from Los Angeles-based brand The Spiders From Arts, and “Michelle My Belle” is a lyric from the Beatles song, “Michelle.”
“In honor of the strongest, most fierce woman there ever was... Repping @MichelleObama to the NY premiere of #KidnapMovie tonight,” Berry captioned an Instagram photo of herself in the shirt. She added thigh-high boots to complete the look:
Berry’s fans went crazy for the shirt in her comments, asking where they can find one of their own. Stefano D’Ambrosio, CEO and creative director of The Spiders From Arts, told HuffPost that the shirt retails for $190 and will soon be available online and in select international multibrand stores.
“I’d love that shirt in my closet,” one follower wrote, while another added, “I wish [the Obamas] were still in the White House.”
Berry isn’t the only actress to wear her post-presidency love for the Obamas. Meryl Streep made waves in June with a purse that had a picture of both Barack and Michelle Obama on it.
We need all of this in our closet, ASAP.
