Halle Berry is the new face of Versace. The Hollywood beauty has agreed to a lucrative deal with the fashion giants to be the star of their upcoming print campaign. Halle met with renowned photographer Mario Testino, famous for snapping the late Princess Diana, for a shoot in Los Angeles last weekend and according to sources the session was a huge success.

A set insider is quoted by America's New York Daily News newspaper: "The shoot was beautiful. Portrait shots, slightly messy hair and a wind machine - very glamorous." Halle is not the first star to advertise Versace. Madonna and actress Demi Moore both have previously promoted the fashion house after being approached by owner Donatella Versace. Madonna caused havoc during her shoot when she halted it to meditate and pray. The stunning singer, who is a devout follower of mystic Jewish faith the Kabbalah, insisted on praying for a "period of good fortune" in the middle of the shoot, for which she was paid a staggering $10.5 million and received free Versace clothes for two years.
