Halle Berry lands a cover in far-off Russia for the local edition of InStyle magazine. The actress leaves behind all the trouble in her home country over her ugly custody battle with Gabriel Aubry and looks stunning in black.
The 46-year-old actress has been tabloid fodder for months as the two, who were never married, fight over the right to oversee their four-year-old daughter, Nahla.
And by fight, we mean that literally.
Aubry got into a knock-down, drag-out brawl with Halle’s current boyfriend French actor Oliver Martinez, 46. As bad as it was, the fight seemed to be a wake up call for Aubry and Berry to finally work out their differences. No charges resulted.

The couple reportedly struck a deal in the first week of December that will also allow them to avoid court-ordered psychiatric tests, according to Fox News.
Meanwhile, the actress is scheduled to receive a special award at the 2013 BET Honors gala and show. She is among several African-American luminaries to who are being honored for their contributions to culture.
Past honorees include Alicia Keys, Tyler Perry, Whitney Houston, Jamie Foxx and supermodel Iman. The show will air on the network Feb 11.
Berry also covered InStyle’s November US edition. She’s currently promoting her Oscar contending film “Cloud Atlas.”
“Throughout my career I have been talked out of things I wanted to do, and when I look back I think, I should have followed my instincts,” Berry said. “I’m a hopeless romantic, and I won’t stop till I get it right!”
With the way she looks at 46, she still has plenty of time to work things out. Check out her photo spread and follow TheImproper on twitter for all the latest celebrity fashion updates.
