Katie Holmes In Holmes & Yang & Lanvin – 25 Most Powerful Stylists Luncheon

When I saw Katie Holmes at the inaugural 25 Most Powerful Stylists Luncheon hosted by The Hollywood Reporter and Jimmy Choo at Soho House in Beverly Hills yesterday afternoon, I yearned for the days when she used to hang out with Victoria Beckham.

That was when Katie made an effort and when she was at her most fabulous.

We got a glimpse of her back at her best at the Vanity Fair party, but looking at her in this Holmes & Yang skirt paired with a Lanvin skirt, that moment of fabulousity was short lived.

I mean, you couldn’t get more boring.

Those two-tone T-bar Rodarte pumps are sending chills down my spine, and not in a good way.

    I actually like this look. And the shoes are what I prefer about the look

    • Amy

      but you’re right. Katie was at her best when she was BFF with VB , I remember that period she even got a campaign for Miu Miu

  • EmmaWoodhouse

    I actually think this is quite cute and not boring at all. I’m undecided about the shoes.

  • Karen

    No surprises here. At least she doesn’t look like she’s trying so hard like all the other times. It’s as if there’s a boring Katie or a trying too hard mess Katie. I think I’d rather see the boring than her usual hot mess.

  • marina

    Even she looks bored.

  • pipsqueak

    Awful. Holmes & Yang is Holmes’ crafts project, backed by the Cruise Funds.

  • Dhppy

    I like this look, and I adore a spectator pump! I think the shoes plus the detail at the end of the skirt give a nod to the 20s. I think it’s charming.

  • Jones19

    This is actually quite good by Katie’s standards.

  • andrea

    Blah. It looks like she either added a seam down the middle or she is wearing the skirt sideways, because those lines look like they are designed to contour a woman’s rear. I keep wanting to shift her skirt to her left!

  • manja


  • Snoozefest but not ugly. I like the shoes.

  • Alina

    Ugly and boring.

  • dee

    I like the shoes, this isn’t so bad.

  • bm

    The shoes Katie wore beat Raquel’s shoes. But, if we compare both of them, miss Raquel won this by a mile bar.

  • Hannah

    The look is awful. It’s sad becaus esome times, like the oscar party, she proves that she can really wow us, and then she goes back into secretary mode.

  • rita

    VB has become so boring. I don’t think it would help her to hang out with her in my humble opinion.

  • Mahima

    i disagree about the shoes. i really like them.

  • Lara

    Maybe I will be in the minority, but I actually think it is an interesting look, even if not a “wow”. The textures and pattern on the skirt, and the choice of shoes save it from me agreeing with the label “boring”. Her hair is a bit limp though.

  • Gillian

    Serious question, what happened to her? Did she change stylists or something? She used to be one of the bests.

  • emma

    Love it!! so pretty!! and I particulary love her shoes!

  • Betty Brandenburg

    The 25 Most Powerful Stylists Luncheon? Don’t these people have a LIFE?
    I like the shoes, they’re the only good thing about the look.
