PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT

Posted Aug 05 2008 @ 08:33 PM

Okay, the first time I saw Katie Holmes leaving the set of Eli Stone in those hideous rolled cuff jeans, I assumed they had to be part of her costume. I mean, what else could possess a person to wear jeans 3 sizes too big with open-toed heels and nylons simultaneously? Apparently, not so much. After at least 5 public appearances wearing those hideous flashback jeans, one can only assume Katie is trying to bring the fad back, presumably from the dead. It’s entirely possible she unearthed these button-fly monstrosities from Tom’s Risky Business wardrobe. How do you feel about Katie’s favorite stone washed pegged jeans – love it or leave it? Practice will not make those jeans perfect, but above the waist Katie pulled off the conservative chic look as she cruised NYC solo to and from rehearsals for “All My Sons” on August 5. Honestly, she looked relatively put together with a black and white polka dot scarf, simple white tank tucked in under a white puff sleeve cardigan (similar to Elizabeth Gillett’s cropped Jackie Button Shrug in Ivory). Katie refined her look with her envious black python Chloe Paraty Bag (try Rough Roses’ Jewel Hobo in Black for a much more affordable version), basic square brown sunnies (check out JeeVice’s Exquisite in Oyster Bronze), simple metallic flats (try Matiko’s Leslie Snake Flat in Bone as a more lively alternative) and a thick brown leather belt to hold up those awful trousers. TomKat and baby Suri have officially relocated to the Big Apple in preparation for Katie’s Broadway debut on September 18, but that didn’t stop mom from jetting home to LA on Monday to have her boyish ‘do sheared even shorter before returning to the city with the fam. I guess she thought new city, new look, right? What do you think of the freshly cropped coif – does it work for her?

Bad jeans but her hair looks better now.guest on Aug 06 2008 @ 03:24 AM

Little tommy wasn't at home when you left?guest on Aug 06 2008 @ 04:22 AM

What is going on with Katie!!! I just don't get it? She is looking truly hideous at the moment, is she doing it on purpose? Those jeans are so bad, get down to house de lux or something and get yourself in a pair of cute, well fitted pants... Go... Now....guest on Aug 06 2008 @ 08:22 AM

She is really hot,i just heard that she is hooking up with a tall basketball player on a tall dating place named: Tallmingle.com ,really?guest on Aug 06 2008 @ 08:46 AM

I like the jeans..sumin different...not the usual skinys or flaredguest on Aug 06 2008 @ 09:16 AM

I like the jeans. Fall must haves are slouchy jeans, and I think she totally rocks them.guest on Aug 06 2008 @ 12:23 PM

I just hate her and her stupid husband so... fuck those jeans (and the legs that wear them)guest on Aug 06 2008 @ 02:59 PM

She may THINK she is going to bring back that 1989 style, but sister it's not gonna work, you and your cheesy husband may be brain washed by scientology but that style is a horror and you won't have any followers! ~Sguest on Aug 06 2008 @ 03:12 PM

Maybe she is recycling first trimester denim?guest on Aug 06 2008 @ 04:02 PM

I think she looks totally fabulous! Why not create your own style. I love the jeans!guest on Aug 08 2008 @ 08:15 AM

Ok, I have been waiting for some rendition of the "boyfriend" jean to come back, but not the actual pair from the boyfriend, the crotch is weird. i would like one of the jean companies to make a worn out looser updated pair though.guest on Aug 10 2008 @ 05:27 AM

I think Katie is predictable, even in this baggy pants look. A few days before, Victoria Beckham was photographed with her family at an amusement park wearing what appeared to be David's pants (VERY huge as you can imagine on V.). Together with her haircut, Katie seems to adhere to the Posh Spice style of dress. Tabloids suggest that K is expecting and that is why she is wearing these pants.guest on Aug 10 2008 @ 05:39 AM

Victorias Secret came out with the "Boyfriend" jean last season as the hottest look for spring. These are identical to those Allesandra models in the catalogs. Maybe Katie's more hip than we think!!guest on Aug 10 2008 @ 08:24 AM

I think her outfit looks great; I especially like her hair cut. Just because the jeans are not skin tight that doesn't make them bad. I am personally so tired of super skinnies!

Good on Katie to try something different and fun like these. (I wish I could see how they look from the back though.) And jeans are just jeans, some of you people are so contrived...and why would you insult her husband or religion when you are suppose to be just commenting on her clothes?

Love the hair; hate hate hate the jeans. The looseness is OK, but the pegged legs suck. Plus the saggy, baggy bottoms don't match the prim, proper upper body. Get a stylist, Katie. And I don't mean Tom.guest on Aug 10 2008 @ 10:41 AM

The jeans are rolled up NOT pegged! Boyfriend jeans people!! HELLO-so IN now!!guest on Aug 10 2008 @ 10:42 AM

LOVE THE WHOLE LOOK!guest on Aug 10 2008 @ 04:38 PM

yes, i believe she is trying to morph into a tom, w/ a dash of vic, its weird and sad to see, when you see old photos of her pre tom, she has a twinkle in her eye, and now she's zombified, same happened to Nicole, she came alive post tom, its a dramatic difference, he is a true control freak, ive dated one too, and it is sufficating. susguest on Aug 10 2008 @ 04:42 PM

I like the fact that she's taking a risk. Celebrities and their styles have become so boring. I think the jeans would look better without the penis bulge and with a boot cut or similar. I too wish companies would start making a sexy "baggy jean". As long as it's worn with the right combo, it could be even more stylish than tight jeans - at least for the moment.guest on Aug 10 2008 @ 07:11 PM

don't like her jeans or her new look. i agree she's changed alot since she married tom, i liked her better before.guest on Aug 10 2008 @ 07:35 PM

She can wear just about anything, and U think she rocks this look.guest on Aug 11 2008 @ 06:15 PM

Those are CURRENT ELLIOT Jeans which is really HOT right now. Sadly it doesn't suit her whole image. Have anyone tried on this jeans??? I think it meant for taller girls. Slouchy cuff jeans r IN this season.guest on Aug 14 2008 @ 06:37 PM

I have to say that I like the outfit.guest on Aug 15 2008 @ 06:54 PM

If you grew up in the eighties, this look brings back memoriesguest on Aug 19 2008 @ 10:07 AM
