Before she became an Academy Award winning actress, Halle Berry was a 20-year-old in a tiara!
The 46-year-old actress, who enjoyed a brief stint as a beauty queen in the 1980s before heading to Hollywood to pursue a career as an actress, was a vision of youth and beauty representing the United Stares at the Miss World pageant in 1986 – and RadarOnline.com has the photos.
Showing off her flawless figure in a sparkling pink spandex swimsuit, which was belted in gold and accessorized with lots of bling, the perfectly poised 20-year-old version of Halle finished 6th in the competition.
Halle competed in a slew of beauty pageants in the 1980s, winning Miss Teen All-American in 1985 and Miss Ohio USA in 1986, and finishing as 1st runner up in 1986’s Miss USA.
