Locals in Los Angeles aren't unaccustomed to dealing with rainy weather, so often don't have wardrobes suitable for the occasion.
But Halle Berry certainly doesn't have that problem, as she showed when she stepped out in Beverly Hills yesterday wearing an unusual pair of wedge wellington boots.
Ever-trendy, the 44-year-old actress passed on the traditional wellies worn by British celebrities to combat the rain, and instead went for the heeled, shiny black boots, which she teamed with leggings, a vest top and jacket.

To top her outfit off, Halle added a splash of colour with an orange and blue cloud-print Bobo Choses umbrella.
The Frankie And Alice actress was obviously stocking up on some last-minute Christmas presents for her two-year-old daughter Nahla, and left laden with shopping bags after browsing the goods at high-end baby boutique Bel Bambini.
However, Halle revealed recently that Nahla is finding it difficult to accept certain aspects of the festive season - like Santa Claus.

She said that her little daughter refuses to go and see the mythical Christmas being in his grotto because she it too scared.
Halle said: 'She's not looking forward to Santa coming because she's terrified of him. She cries. I can sit on his knee this Christmas but she can't.'
Halle is just one of the stars braving the wet weather as Los Angeles experiences its most severe downpour in years.
