‘Who Wore It Best?’: Tracee Ellis Ross and Halle Berry Go Head to Head In Pillow Challenge

It’s safe to say people have gotten pretty creative since being stuck in their homes amid the COVID-19 crisis. From TikTok challenges to quarantine night clubs to virtual happy hours, it appears as if people are trying to find the light at the end of the tunnel. The hottest new viral fad is the pillow challenge. The trend involves taking a pillow and using a belt to create a strapless dress. You strike a pose, upload the picture to social media, and use the hashtag pillow challenge to compete.

Tracee Ellis Ross and Halle Berry were spotted participating in the pillow craze, and it seemed as if they were both competing neck and neck for the number-one spot.

On Monday, April 24, Ross posted her pillow challenge attempt to Instagram. The “Black-ish” star posed atop a wooden desk in front of a navy blue wall. She donned a texture beige pillow with a yellow belt while being surrounded by a fiddle plant and pink peonies. Ross, the daughter to Diana Ross, looked as if she were modeling for a magazine cover.

Berry shared a photo to Instagram on Wednesday, April 15 that showed her modeling her pillow. The actress from “John Wick: Chapter 3” stepped out in her garden ready to demolish the competition. Berry wore a black studded belt around a black pillow. She threw on multiple accessories to tie her look together. She came through dripping in a black hat, black stilettos, and a pair of black sunglasses.
