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 love kaie’s casual look.

i think the jeans look great she looks casual and still chic. She can rock both the sexy sophisticated look and the down to earth look. she grew up a tomboy and there’s no way that’s out of her completely, she’s probably comfortable dressed like herself.

I don’t get Tim Gunn, actually so that makes us even. She looked great when she was pre Tom. I haven’t liked her “sexy sophisticate” look at all. This suits her.
