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.

Katie Holmes In Holmes & Yang – ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’ New York Premiere

Katie Holmes joined husband Tom Cruise for the first time during this ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’ promo tour.

Remember when he used to drag her everywhere?

For the New York premiere she wore a navy polka-dot dress from her Holmes & Yang creation.

Whilst the dress isn’t too bad, it is tres boring for a young woman like Katie.

Factor in the tights and the Lanvin satin pumps and I’m glad she stayed at home for this tour.

Hair and makeup wise, she’s flawless.

Katie Holmes In Holmes & Yang – ‘Jack And Jill’ LA Premiere

Katie Holmes took to the red carpet last night for the LA premiere of her latest movie, ‘Jack & Jill’.

The actress/designer wore an ensemble from her own Holmes & Yang collection.

Her silk-chiffon sleeveless v-neck dress has a crisscross purple top half and a black pleated skirt.

I was going to give her ill-fitting, bra revealing, self designed dress a mercy thumbs up until I saw the Lanvin pumps.

The colour isn’t the issue; it’s those grey ankle straps.

I fail to see what look she was trying to achieve by adding them as they cut her off at the ankles.

Katie Holmes In Holmes & Yang – “Dont Be Afraid Of The Dark” New York Premiere

There was yet another LBD on the red carpet last night, this time courtesy of Katie Holmes.

She was in New York City for the premiere of her latest movie, “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark.”

Katie wore a simple black halter dress from her own Holmes & Yang collection.

Whilst Katie looks beautiful…blah, blah, blah…the dress is identical to the dress she wore to the LA Film Festival back in June.

Katie has always been incredibly bland to me, but this sinks to a new low.

I thought Cameron Diaz had the most uninspiring promo tour, but that prize now goes to Katie.

The v-neck dress black dress was teamed with nude Alexandre Birman heels.

On the plus side I do like her curly hair.

Malin Akerman In Holmes & Yang – “Sucker Punch” LA Premiere

The few times we’ve seen Katie Holmes in Holmes & Yang, we weren’t that impressed.

It appears that the collection has improved dramatically if Malin Akerman’s look is anything to go by.

The blonde actress opted for a red Holmes & Yang silk dress for the “Sucker Punch” LA Premiere last night.

I love how the dress does all the work making her blue eyes pop.

She simply added a gold belt and Stephen Webster jewels to this stunning yet simple look.

If this is a taster, I can’t wait to see the rest of the collection.

2010 National Movie Awards – Katie Holmes In Holmes & Yang

Tom Cruise had his usual bear-tight grip on wife Katie Holmes as they walked the red carpet at the 2010 National Movie Awards at the Royal Festival Hall in London last night.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen her on the red carpet, but she looked stunning wearing a chevron striped maxi dress from her own Holmes & Yang collection.

The beauty of this look is its simplicity.

Just a simple necklace and flawless make-up complete this BDOTW worthy look.

Katie was there to support Tom who was honored with the “Screen Icon Award”.
