More Katie Holmes For Miu Miu Spring 2009


I much prefer the newer pictures of Katie Holmes for Miu Miu. Which makes me wonder why they released the worst one first.

The clothes are better, and she has more life in her cat eyes.

Miu Miu said that the inspiration behind the campaign, was set out to portray Katie Holmes as ‘a luminous icon radiating a sense of mystery and theatricality.’

Although these pictures are better, I still don’t think – as young Katie is – that she fits the Miu Miu brand. When I think of Miu Miu I think of young, quirky and Chloe Sevigny.

The photography was done by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott.

Runway To "Valkyrie" Brazil Premiere – Katie Holmes In Christian Lacroix Couture


Regular readers will understand how frustrated I always get when Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes hit the red carpet. That is because they never have a second apart, so she is never photographed alone.

The couple attended the Brazilian premiere of Valkyrie yesterday.

He was in a navy striped suit, she was wearing a long green Christian Lacroix Haute Couture Fall 2007 tunic, with shimmering silver pearling, a vivid red bustier, and electric blue velvet sash tied to the waist.

I love the dress. It was a great choice, but Katie barely brings it to life.

The dress is so vivacious, charismatic and full of life, but on Katie…it’s just OK. And just OK on a couture gown, which probably took 400 hours or more to create, just won’t do.

Even the sash is limp. Couldn’t she have found someone to tie it into a pretty bow for her?

I also think it’s cut too low for her, as it exposes how thin she has become.

The red lips, and the hair I love from the front, but not crazy about the bun at the back.

This dress is being called a vintage dress. I love vintage clothes from the 50s, 60s an 70s, but to me this is 4 seasons old.

I’m not a vintage aficionado, so if any of you can let me know how old a garment has to be to be classed as vintage, I would very much appreciate it, as I was under the impression it was 10/20 years.

02.02.09 In Her Closet

In Katie Holmes’ Closet – Juicy Couture Maxi Dress


Katie Holmes are currently in Brazil with her husband, who is promoting his film Valkyrie.

I am currently wishing I was there with them, because it’s snowing in London.

The couple aren’t able to take a break from the paparazzi, who caught them leaving Sushi Leblon in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday night.

Katie kept her look casual wearing a Juicy Couture print maxi dress, under a white cardigan with tan gladiators.

The spaghetti strapped floor-sweeping printed maxi dress is really cute. It has a drawstring empire waist, and a contrast ruffled hem.

Prepare yourself for summer by purchasing this maxi from Net-A-Porter’s US site for $350, and the international site for £260/€318.

The Rest Of The SAG Award Red Carpet

Katie Holmes didn’t walk the red carpet as E! had promised. Instead she skipped to present Sean Penn with the Outstanding Actor Award.

I love how she interpreted this asymmetrical Jil Sander Spring 2009 dress, because the runway version was longer, and had cut-outs on each thigh.

She completed her look with leg lengthening nude Stuart Weitzman heels.

Perrey Reeves looked ethereal in her Monique Lhuillier Spring 2009 halter gown, which had floral appliqués on the hem of the skirt.

She matched her bronze clutch, with the bronze sash on her gown.

Keisha and Forest Whitaker gave Diane Lane and Josh Brolin a run for their money, in the best dressed couple category.

He was dashing in a black 3 piece suit, whilst she was divine in an Rafael Cennamo silk emerald green one shoulder gown.

Amy Adams didn’t exactly wow me in her strapless purple Giambattista Valli gown, which had a corseted bodice, and gathered detailing on the front. But it was a refreshing colour for her, as she has worn a lot of black lately.

She completed the look with a classic updo, black peep toes, and glittering H Stern jewels.

Brown has never been my favourite colour on the red carpet, so when I saw Andrea Bowen I was initially turned off, but her Rafael Cennamo dress grew on me.

The dress had a brown taffeta bubble hem skirt, with a sequin bodice and leather waistband. She did not try to over dress. Instead she looked her age, and the interesting shape of the dress was not what we would normally expect.

Katrina Bowden wore a dress by Christian Siriano.

The dress would have been better suited to the Grammy’s or the MTV Awards, but she looks so hot it in, that I am sure that will be overlooked.

Laura Linney looked amazing in a coral one-shouldered Michael Kors gown.

She is always so gracious on the red carpet.

Jane Krakowski’s Roberto Cavalli red gown plunged dangerously low.

January Jones did not follow the spring-like colours, nor the red and white trend on the red carpet last night. The Mad Men actress wore an ornate, Grecian-inspired Andrew GN Spring 2009 haltered gown.

I adored the gold detail, which made this black gown really stand out.

Miss Jones seems to have this red carpet thing figured-out.

Taraji P. Henson was absolutely gorgeous wearing white silk jersery Herve Leroux figure-enhancing halter gown.

Christina Applegate went for laid-back glamour wearing a very vivid green Emanuel Ungaro gown.

The colour of this gown is amazing, as it draped loosely around her stunning figure.

Her hair was pulled back to show off her stunning Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and she also carried a Daniel Swarovski clutch.

Laura Dern arrived wearing a black custom-made Burberry gown, with embroidered detail on the top half of the gown, and a single pleat in the full skirt.

This picture does not do this dress justice, as it looked amazing on her.

Julia Ormond wore a navy Azzaro gown, which had a jeweled halter neck, and a jeweled detailed on the hip.

Holly Hunter wore a strapless fuchsia Reem Acra Spring 2009 gown, which had a long train.

I didn’t think she did the gorgeous gown justice.

There is a distinct trend for red heads wearing green dresses on the red carpet. Isla Fisher and Amy Adams have all worked this look, now Alison Pill.

Her fiery red locks complimented her racing green Jason Wu Fall 2008 halter dress with a crisscross bodice perfectly. Not sure about the shoes, but the dress is a great pick.

Runway To "Valkyrie" London Premiere – Katie Holmes In Escada


It know it was Tom Cruise’s night, as he was promoting his new movie Valkyrie in London last night. But I would have love it if we had got just one photo of Katie Holmes alone, so we could take in the splendor of her Escada Pre-Fall 2009 flapper-esqe cocktail dress.

The black embroidered exquisite dress had ribbon ties on the shoulders, and embellished details all over. The dress exposed her long slender legs, which Katie kept warm in opaque tights, under Givenchy Lace ankle sandals.

And I will say the tights were needed. It was a bitterly cold night in London, so kudos to her for braving the coat for our viewing pleasure.

I am rejoicing at the return of the sleek bob, with the side sweeping bangs. That was always my favourite hairstyle of hers.

Runway To "Valkyrie" Berlin Premiere – Katie Holmes In Escada


For a while I hadn’t been Katie Holmes’ biggest supporter on the red carpet. She had an amazing early 2008, then by the time she hit Broadway, she kinda lost her spark for me.

Well tonight at the Berlin Valkyrie premiere, we got to see Katie Holmes strike gold in this stunning Escada Pre-Fall 2009 black gown.

The black jersey v-neck gown with Indian hand embroidered detail, made her look extremely elegant. I know a lot of you think I am all about the bling bling dresses, but when I do appreciate a simple gown with exquisite embellishments.

The actress sported a new curly do, and it was good to see that smirk back on her face.

She completed her look with Christian Louboutin heels.

Simply gorgeous.

More Katie Holmes For Miu Miu Spring 2009


Here is another picture of Katie Holmes posing for Miu Miu’s Spring 2009 advertising campaign.

She poses with a back-drop of a blazing sky and with her hand engulfed in fire, yet there is no personality.

The campaign was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

I hope better is to come.

Katie Holmes For Miu Miu Spring 2009 Ad Campaign


It looks like it’s not only Victoria Beckham’s who Spring 2009 advertising campaign was launched today. Katie Holmes’ Miu Miu Spring 2009 campaign was also unveiled.

Katie is wearing one of Miuccia Prada’s graffiti-spattered day dresses, which was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott in New York last November.

If there was a battle of the advertising campaigns, Victoria would win hands down, as hers has more of an impact and a lot more personality.
