Tim Gunn is never shy about his opinions on Project Runwaycalling a dress a “pterodactyl out of a gay Jurassic Park” isn’t exactly holding back. And when PEOPLE talked to the debonair fashion expert at the Tide and Downy Total Care Launch Party, he expressed his disapproval of Katie Holmes‘s recent penchant for fall’s new baggy jeans. “I have to say, Katie Holmes has become so much more sophisticated in so many ways, but I think she’s in a dip right now. I can’t explain it.” Gunn actually sees the adaptation of the new look as a move back towards her younger look, saying “She ascended from this tomboyish waif look to an incredible sexy sophisticate. We realize how much style she’s capable of. I don’t get it.” But for those of us who are digging Katie’s baggy look (also spotted on Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston), Gunn does give us hope. “With the right shape, it can work very well.” — Jessica Gold Haralson

I agree. I think this is the WORST style ever. It looks ridiculous. It’s not flooding where your pants the right way

If they were Tom’s like some folks are suggesting, she wouldn’t NEED to roll them up! (snort)

What is up with Katie Holmes? She’s got all the money in the world and she has been looking 15 years older than she really is! Get better jeans (talk to Posh), get a better hair style and get those teeth straightened (your husband did)!

Tim, find a real job, let any one dress the way they fell confortable, just think how much each of those pants or hand bag cost, she has what many of you may be don’t have, job, money, family, carisma, and what ever she dress she looks fantastic. Also you forgot some times they have to change ther look to avoid paparatzis.

i love the jeans. i live in ny, and i see them on a lot of people who look comfy yet kind of edgy. she’s not wearing the skinny jeans and the stiletto heels. so what? i think she looks casual, cool, and chic.

Those are “designer” jeans (PRPS jeans) and the cost is around $360 a pair!!!! Yes, $360 and they look like that!!!

Heather on

I think she’s doing it to fit in more with her Broadway co-stars. Do you really think people show up to rehearsals wearing Prada gowns and Jimmy Choos?


Do celebrities have to look perfect all the time? She might not have felt well or was PMS…ing!!
Give her a break!!!

I am sorry but this is foul, this is not a good look for anyone.
