Welcome to 2016, Halle.

Halle Berry knows what she's doing. 

The 49-year-old has just joined the creme de la creme of social media platforms (Instagram, duh), but unlike many first-time users over the age of 17, she's not doing so blindly. 

From her #inspirational quote bio ("It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see." — Thoreau) to her strategically artsy avatar in which her face is hidden behind a wide-brim hat, it's clear that Berry has been coached on the do's and don't's of the 'gram. 

The actress's very first post checks all the boxes of like-worthy Insta criteria: effortlessly messy hair; subtle jewelry; partial nudity that isn't overtly sexy; bamboo stalks. Check, check and check.

"Hi everyone. Welcome!" she writes in the caption of what appears to be a photo of her casual topless jungle excursion.

She adds: "I am in awe of photography and its ability to capture and reflect this extraordinary world that we live in. I'm excited to share with you my love of nature, the arts, fashion and much more in the hopes that the images will inspire, promote conversation and bring you joy."
