It was a big night for leading ladies Nicole Kidman, Halle Berry
and Jennifer Lopez
's Women in Hollywood Tribute event on Monday, and the actresses were all focused on their most important role to date: being a mom.
Kidman, looking svelte in a fitted Prada minidress, arrived at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills and told PEOPLE that 3-month-old Sunday Rose
had just fallen asleep. "I'm very lucky," she said, adding, "her personality started to show when she was in my tummy – she's lovely."
New mom Lopez, in Dolce & Gabbana, spoke about balancing motherhood with her career since welcoming twins
Max and Emme in February. "It's tough, you just try," she said at the event, which was hosted by Elle
magazine. "I'm still figuring it out."
She also admitted that primping for the red carpet is more challenging than ever. "While I'm doing hair and makeup, I try to put them on my lap and the makeup artist is like, 'Can you move her?' And I'm like, 'No! I have to have two babies on my lap!'"
And Berry, in a figure-hugging Roberto Cavalli dress, said she was still mastering the juggling act since giving birth
to her daughter Nahla in March. "I'm only seven months into learning how to balance all of those things," she said. "What I know for sure is that many women have done it before me – so it's doable. But I'm a newbie – I'm making a lot of mistakes right now!"
