Halle Berry is saving her shoes for her daughter because she herself still wears footwear previously owned by her mother that has now come back into fashion.
Halle Berry is saving her shoes for her daughter.
The 45-year-old actress still owns footwear that was given to her by her mother and hopes one day to hand her own pumps down to four-year-old Nahla - whose father is her ex-partner Gabriel Aubry - for when they come back into fashion.
She said: ''I think shoes after something that, through time, will always come back in fashion again. I had shoes my mother gave to me from the 1970s that I wore a few years ago. So yes, I'm thinking of that for my daughter.''
It looks as if Nahla could inherit a huge collection as Halle - who is now engaged to French actor Olivier Martinez - admits she is ''pretty addicted'' to buying shoes.
The 'Cloud Atlas' star always takes good care of her shoes and even has a dedicated room to store them neatly.
She explained: ''I'm pretty addicted. I have thousands of pairs and I have a real relationship with them. I think many women do.
''Shoes are like a good hairdo; they reflect how we feel. If you're feeling sexy, fun, sporty, if you're feeling casual ... your shoes say a lot about you.
''I have a storage room where I keep them all, in their boxes with a picture of each pair taped to the outside. I'm pretty obsessive.''
