Is Katie's Disco Look a Do or Dud?

11/28/2006 at 03:25 PM ET

It’s not unusual to be inspired by classic cinematic looks — Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Diane Keaton in Annie Hall — but John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever? Katie Holmes wasn’t even born yet when the disco-tastic movie came out in 1977, but she still looked suspiciously ready to do the hustle in her white YSL suit and black blouse in Paris last month. And she’s not the only one — as you can see in our gallery, Annette Bening and Faye Dunaway have hopped on the Tony Manero bandwagon too. Tell us: Would you wear a suit like Katie’s? Is it retro-cool or a moldy-oldie?

I think she looks wonderful! She really reminds me of Jackie O. Timeless!

I actually thought Katie Holmes looked pretty great in that outfit until you mentioned John Travolta and his white disco suit. Now I feel like giggling when I look at Katie’s photo, though I do agree with Bunky that Annette Benning manages to pull off the look, Travolta not withstanding. On the other hand, Katie Homes is no Annette Benning!

It doesn’t look great on her, but it doesn’t look bad…although I have to say, since she’s been with Cruise she haschanged, physically. She’s not that classic, all-american beauty anymore, she looks like a robot…and what’s with the hair?

I think she looks good, but she ought to have gotten the pants hemmed. They look too long on her.

I think she looks great, if that is the style she has chosen. She does dress a lot older than most girls her age, but she pulls it off in a way most younger women couldn’t.

Katie looks classy and cute in this outfit. It may look a little “old”, but at least it’s not trashy. Her bouncy curls and natural makeup freshen up the look.

She looks nice. I also like her pre-wedding party outfit (peach blouse with pants).

Retro cool, european fashion; looks great!!.

I feel that Katie is acting so much older than her years. I preferred Tom with Nicole, but apparently he enjoys robbing the cradle. I feel bad for Katie. She had her whole life ahead of her and now she is a young mom without much of a career ahead. And lets be honest, you KNOW their marriage is not going to last. Then where will she be? I liked her alot better with Chris Klein.

I tend to think that Tom has full control over Katie. I’m not sure she is allowed in public unless Tom approves. That said, I’m sure Tom pulled that out of his closet for her. They are the same size….
