With Oscar-winner Halle Berry celebrating her 47th birthday Aug. 14, join us for a look back at her career so far.
Berry first came into the spotlight at 17 years old when she won the Miss Teen All-American Pageant in 1985. She went on a year later to win Miss Ohio USA, eventually finishing as runner-up to Miss USA. She was the first African-American Miss World entrant in 1986 (as seen here in the center of the front row), where she finished sixth.
