Katie Holmes In Calvin Klein Collection – 2013 Met Gala

Katie Holmes In Calvin Klein Collection - 2013 Met Gala

Katie Holmes looked very graceful when she stepped out onto the red carpet for Monday night’s 2013 Met Gala in New York City.

While there isn’t much punk rock going on with her custom Calvin Klein Collection creation styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and white sandals, the brunette beauty did opt for a slicked back bouffant and smoky eyes.

Her ivory halter gown with a flowing train is Katie at her best, but does the fact that it isn’t really on theme lose her style points?

    First rule of any party – respect the dress code. I don’t wear white to a wedding (unless it’s my wedding!) & when the dress code is punk – show it some respect!

    She looks angelic but she doesn’t look right amongst the other people who went big and bold.

    As I’m not usually wowed by her outfits, I must say I really like this look, plus her hair and make-up are kind of into theme.

    She clearly has no idea what punk is. She does look great though.

    well this isn’t punk at all, is it? Considering the fact that Katie has been a mess on the RC lately, she gets a pass for this one. At least she looks great

    This isn’t even trying to be punk, which is kind of a disappointment. I like her hair and makeup a lot. The gown is angelic (if a little too quiet) from the front, but from the side there’s too much being revealed.

    She looks beautiful, but isn’t remotely on theme. Best she’s looked in a long time. Katie got her groove back?

    Love what Katie Holmes has done here – slightly ethereal with a twist.. Nice to see her out and smiling. Works for me.

    I don’t care she isn’t on theme, this is the best she has looked in years!

    I like that she went for white dress and be punk on the make up. The whole look was good but still wasn’t her best.

    KH will get a pass for the next 12 years by media and anti-SCI/Tom Cruise posse.

    But, for a owner of a fashion label and an actress starring as a manic depressive in her next gig I expected more — definitely something more edgy. The dress in black?
    The make up is more smokey than edgy and we already saw that in the Bobbi Brown ads. Also, her hair more birds nest than punk—some blue or pink streaks with the more of a mohawk hairstyle, then it would have looked like she read the memo.
    A Grecian Goddess/White Wedding theme then yes she would have nailed it, but Punk Rock? Missed it by miles.

    One of her better looks of late, she looks beautiful but come on Katie, get with the theme!

  13. TL May 7, 2013 at 08:29 #

    Except for the punk theme, she looks elegant and beautiful.

  14. Gabby M May 7, 2013 at 08:18 #

    the hair, it just is someone trying to hard too look cool… theres a lot of that going on at this gala, that said, deep part wouldve been better… this look wouldve been passable

    • Fiona May 7, 2013 at 09:34 #

      Agree 100% – don’t like the makeup either.

  15. Aline May 7, 2013 at 07:48 #

    She looks beautiful, the dress is perfect for her. The haistyle, however, doesn’t for me.

  16. Noemi May 7, 2013 at 07:11 #

    I only like hair and make up, but I don’t understand the dress considering the theme of the night.

  17. Christine May 7, 2013 at 06:59 #

    Kudos for trying I guess.

  18. Teleholic May 7, 2013 at 06:58 #

    It was a difficult theme to pull off and she ain’t Tilda, Cate, or Diane, so I appreciated her playing it relatively safe.

    One of my favorite looks of hers in a long while.

    I think Katie looks stunning! The train of her gown is so gorgeous

    Since Katie is a hit or miss on the red carpet, I can overlook the fact that she isn’t on theme. She looks delightful here. I really like this look.

    • noo May 7, 2013 at 08:26 #

      completely agree!

      • the ogre May 7, 2013 at 12:10 #

        i completely agree. she’s looking like this after a long time! so shes the only one i would excuse for not sticking to the theme even though she tried to! she looks beautiful! one of my favourites!

    • dee May 7, 2013 at 13:30 #

      I agree.

    • sammy May 7, 2013 at 21:49 #
