Katie Holmes In Bottega Veneta – ‘Dead Accounts’ Broadway Opening Nigh After Party

Katie Holmes celebrated her Broadway opening night of ‘Dead Accounts’ at the after party held at Gotham Hall in New York City last night.

The actress has a knack for dressing much older than her 33 years.

Case in point: this Bottega Veneta Spring 2013 floral-print dress with a black-and-white embellished bib drastically ages her.

It could have a lot to do with the styling, which included thick tights and black t-bar Gio Diev pointy pumps, or it could just be the dress itself.

A signature woven Bottega Veneta clutch with a knotted clasp completed her look.

Can you find any good elements within this look? Or is it a H-2-T failure?

You can buy Katie’s Bottega Veneta clutch from Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.

    dont mind the dress the tights and shoes though are bad.

      Agree. The dress is great, but it needs barely there tights, like on the runway.

    I don’t like it. The dress is awful and the styling is not good.

    Looks like a dress for a much more mature woman. I don’t like the tights and shoes either. She’d look nice in something more youthful.

    This is so aging. This would look good on Anna Wintour, but not on Katie.

      I was thinking the same thing.

        A big fail. I agree.

    I would of thought now she’s single she would dress better….

    Helen Mirren can, and has, done better than this. Katie, come on!

    Yes i can totally see Anna Wintour wearing this!, i think if Katie changed her tights it may improve the look somewhat, but its not really doing anything for me

    I could see this dress on Anna Wintour but it is definitely not working for Katie. Definitely a head to toe failure. Although I do love the clutch itself.

    Katie ruins another fantastic piece YET AGAIN.

    She needed her hair up, to ditch the tights and snoozeville shoes.

  11. Rebecca Z November 30, 2012 at 15:28 #

    Serious fail. Personally I think the dress is really ugly and don’t know why anyone would want to wear it. Her hair and makeup are beautiful, but this is just so dreadful.

    I like the dress and the shoes but with a pair of sheer black tights like the model.

  13. Moxie November 30, 2012 at 16:18 #

    Two thumbs down. WAY down.

  14. SarahC November 30, 2012 at 17:53 #

    With the lovely collar, I think that the look would have been much improved had she worn her hair up. Unfortunately, Katie’s look usually gets filed under “dowdy”. I think it must be the tights and heels that aged the look because (regardless of what one feels about the dress) it doesn’t scream matronly in the runway version.

    I don’t understand how such a beautiful, fit woman would want to dress like she orders from the AARP discount menu.

    I like the dress. I like the clutch, and she looks great, but I think no tights plus killer heels would really have taken this up a notch!

  16. Aline November 30, 2012 at 20:05 #

    I love her glossy hair and pretty makeup. But from the neck down it’s a disaster.

  17. Nat39 November 30, 2012 at 20:10 #

    The biggest mistake was to wear tights this thick – sheer hose would’ve worked just fine, the hair should’ve been pulled back to show off the embellished bib detail, and a slightly shorter (more in upper-knee area) length would’ve helped.

    total flop! there’s nothing to redeem this : the print is mumsy,the shape is awful,the shoes boring, the clutch unnecessary, I could go on.
    I miss 2008 Katie when she had cropped hair and killer sense of style .
