Halle Berry happy with her Vogue cover

New York: Yeah, she`s got an Oscar, but Halle Berry says that being on the cover of the all-important September issue of a fashion magazine is another big honour.

Berry is on the cover of this month`s Vogue and she turned out Friday night at Fashion`s Night Out at the Ralph Lauren store on Madison Avenue to sign copies for fans. She also posed for photographers with David Lauren and Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, the architect of this now-national shopping event.

"I know how important the night is for fashion, our industry and the economy, and there`s so much going to charity," Berry said. "It`s a win-win-win."

The NYC AIDS Fund has been tapped as a beneficiary of Fashion`s Night Out.

On this night, Berry wore a black jacket and beaded, sheer top by Lauren — skinny black pants were by Rag & Bone. She also wore a Lauren gown at her cover shoot.

"I don`t get to pick anything (for photo shoots). I think Anna does," she said. "I tried on lots of different things, and if you`re not comfortable, you can`t present your best self, so everyone made sure I was comfortable in what I was wearing."

She did have the benefit of seeing the issue early, several days before it hit stands — and she was happy with it.

Her fans must have been happy, too: Scores of them lined up for her autograph.

Wintour`s advice to Berry was to use a Sharpie marker. "It`s the only thing that works," said Wintour.
