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

      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

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

    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.

    Even she looks bored.

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

    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.

    This is actually quite good by Katie’s standards.

    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!

    Snoozefest but not ugly. I like the shoes.

  11. Alina March 15, 2012 at 13:05 #

    Ugly and boring.

  12. dee March 15, 2012 at 13:02 #

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

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

    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.

  15. rita March 15, 2012 at 12:29 #

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

  16. Mahima March 15, 2012 at 12:13 #

    i disagree about the shoes. i really like them.

    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.

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

    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.
