Katie Holmes and her ever present husband Tom Cruise arrived at the New York screening of “The Romantics” in New York City yesterday.

As much as I love her Jason Wu Resort 2011 dress, she totally sucked the life out of it.

The tights are killing me but not as much as those beige Alaia pumps.

I also hate that Holmes & Yang jacket she’s wearing.

Why wear such a pretty dress if you’re going to cover 3/4 of it with that horrible jacket?

This dress deserves a second outing.

The only thing I like here is her bouncy, voluminous do.

This is more like it.

Earlier in the day Katie was allowed out on her own for her appearance on the “Late Show With David Letterman”.

She wore just a simple black dress with a leopard print Lanvin Pre-Fall 2010 trench coat which was the winning factor in this look.

Her favourite Lanvin Happy bag and nude Stuart Weitzman pumps were the perfect finishing touches.

Hopefully we’ll see more of this, and less of the above.
