New mum HALLE BERRY has been named the Sexiest Woman Alive by men's style magazine Esquire.
The Oscar winner poses in little but a T-shirt for the pages of Esquire's upcoming November issue, and admits she's baffled by the honour.
She says, "I don't know exactly what it means, but being 42 and having just had a baby, I think I'll take it.
"Sexiness is a state of mind, a comfortable state of being. It's about loving yourself in your most unlovable moments.
"I share this title with every woman, because every woman is a nominee for it at any moment."
Halle gave birth to her daughter, NAHLA, in March.
