The ring's back on! Halle Berry steps out in a figure-hugging maxi dress as fiancé Olivier Martinez plays stepfather to NahlaBy Virginia Skeels
Hollywood is hard on women of any age, let alone those over 40.
But 45-year-old Halle Berry showed just why she is among Hollywood's more inspirational leading ladies yesterday, as she stepped out with fiancé Olivier Martinez and adorable daughter Nahla.
The X-Men actress, whose movie career remains in high gear, looked stunning in a floor-length black maxi dress, straw Fedora hat and tinted shades.

Storm in a teacup: Halle was seen without her ring this week, sparking rumours of relationship woes
Her daughter is from her previous relationship with French-Canadian model Gabriel Aubry.
With wedding bells on the horizon, a beautiful child and a brand new movie in the works, Halle Berry certainly seems to be defying any notion of stasis in her career or personal life, despite the punishing reputation of the Hollywood machine on women of a certain age.
The Oscar-winner is currently filming The Hive, alongside Soprano's actor Michael Imperioli and Little Miss Sunshine's Abigail Breslin.
Next up for Halle will be Shoe Addicts Anonymous, an indie film about a support group formed for people who are addicted to shoes.
It was also announced this week that she will be a guest star on the next season of popular children's show Sesame Street.
Martinez, meanwhile, is also enjoying his own career success.
He is currently filming The Physician, a tale set in 11th Century Persia about a surgeon's apprentice who disguises himself as a Jew to study at a school that does not admit Christians.

Berry once more looked stunning, this time in a pair of tan culottes which she paired with a scoop-neck black T-shirt, black-and-gold sandals and a different Fedora.
Martinez dressed in a classic black T-shirt and jeans, while little Nahla wore a pretty grey summer dress and matching sandals.
