Katie Holmes In Tom Ford – 12-12-12 Concert

Katie Holmes joined Blake Lively on the red carpet for the 12-12-12 Concert Benefiting The Robin Hood Relief Fund To Aid The Victims Of Hurricane Sandy at Madison Square Garden in New York City last night.

There has long been an A.P.B for Katie’s red carpet mojo and it appears to be still at large judging from this look.

Wearing a Tom Ford Fall 2012 look, which we’ve seen a few times before, even on the 2011 US X Factor winner Melanie Amaro last week as she performed on the show, Katie fails to excite in this look.

The purple velvet knee-length dress with sheer sleeves would’ve looked amazing on her in her heyday.

Her hair is so poorly styled, if styled at all, and I’m so o.v.e.r. those Tom Ford padlock pumps.

I really wanted to love it.

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.

Katie Holmes In Stella McCartney – Out In New York City

Katie Holmes was spotted arriving at the Music Box Theater in New York City with daughter Suri Cruise on Saturday afternoon.

Whilst clutching a cluster of stuffed teddy bears, the mother of one managed to look stylish carrying her latest ‘IT’ bag, the Derek Lam ‘Newton’ camera bag.

The small but roomy bag, big enough to carry all her necessities, comes in many colours including black, but she opted for the berry hue which is perfect for Fall.

Katie’s bag adds a chic touch to her Stella McCartney cable knit cardigan from the designers Fall 2012 collection, which she wore with a black top, black jeans and Rag & Bone ankle boots.

Narciso Rodriguez Kohl’s Collection Launch Party

Kohl celebrated the launch of Narciso Rodriguez for Kohl’s DesigNation with an exclusive event to premiere the collection at the IAC Building in New York City last night.

Katie Holmes: The actress kept her look very simple wearing a black Narciso Rodriguez LBD with a V-neck, long sleeves and a ruche detailing. Soft wavy locks, pink lips, nude Loeffler Randall shoes and a black Hermes clutch with gold hardware completed the look.

Emma Roberts: The young star opted for a more colourful look wearing a Narciso Rodriguez for Kohl’s knee-length pink-and-red dress with a V-neckline. A red Edie Parker clutch and black Christian Louboutin heels accessorized her look with a simple ponytail and pink lipstick providing the finishing touches.

Julianna Margulies: The ‘Good Wife’ star has been a long time fan of Narciso Rodriguez’s work, so I wasn’t surprised to see her attend this celebratory launch. The actress wore a Narciso Rodriguez for Kohl’s slim two-tone ponte dress with black-and-nude pumps.

Katie Holmes The First Celebrity Face For Bobbi Brown

Actress-turned-designer Katie Holmes has become the first celebrity face of Bobbi Brown’s eponymous makeup line and will appear in a new advertising campaign next spring, as well as collaborating on a capsule collection of colour cosmetics.

‘Katie Holmes epitomises the modern ‘Bobbi woman’… I think of her as the modern day Ali McGraw, who I have always admired,’ Bobbi said.

‘Katie is a classic natural beauty, entrepreneur, and mother. When I met her, I thought she was a natural fit for my brand, and felt an instant connection with her because we have so much in common.’ And clearly the feeling is mutual as Brown was chosen as the makeup artist for the much-anticipated Holmes & Yang presentation at New York Fashion Week.

‘Bobbi is exceptional and Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is a company that we, as women, all turn to because it is make-up that is very accessible and makes you feel pretty,’ Katie explained.

‘Sometimes it is just a lipstick or a blush that makes you feel like you can do what you need to do. Make-up is powerful and I am thrilled to be a part of this brand.’

Bobbi Brown also shared her favourite makeup look for Katie Holmes using products from her own line.

Katie Holmes In Carolina Herrera – 9th Annual Style Awards

Katie Holmes attended the 9th Annual Style Awards at the Lincoln Center in New York City last night.

For the event, Katie chose a quintessential Carolina Herrera ensemble, which included an open-necked black shirt and a pleated metallic skirt garnished with black beading.

Although Katie looked lovely, if not a little thin, I can’t help but think that a classic outfit such as this might be more at home on a more mature woman.

I’m glad she’s worn her hair in a messy ponytail and donned a pair of sparkly pumps. It helped to keep her look younger.

What do you think of Katie’s ensemble?

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.
