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

In no way are those Tom’s jeans since Katie is taller then Tom and she rolls them up unless Tom likes to wear jeans 10x to big for him. Others around the net are saying they are actually from her play.

loves it! i absolutely adore katies look right now! her hair and jeans and just everything! it males her more real. i think that once she got married to tom she felt pressure to be glamo all the time bc hey its tom cruise! and i think that added to their weirdo public opinions but now i thinks shes fallen into herself and being passionate and free of the anxiety and pressure. im sure her daughters helped with that. i for one am falling in love with the cruises.

It’s called BEING COMFORTABLE!! Why would one want to wear high fashion every single day? I think the look is cute and comfy, perfect for chasing around a 3 year old all day long!

Geez people, give her a break. So, she’s not dressing up? We all have days like that. And she’s got a husband, so he’s the only who needs to see what she’s got under neath all those baggy clothes any way….

Since current trends have been regurgitating the 60’s/70’s/80’s, i bet someone who manages her, be it her manager, her husband whatver..who researched and said Hey! this trend existed!..So..lets make publicity by having Katie start the newest trend..YAAAY!!!!…which unfortunatly didn’t happen…Come on, you didn’t think it was planned, even when her “best friend” skinny mini Posh (who lets face it doesn’t do baggy)-did!!! Oh the price of fame…or the hunger for it! HAHA..nice try you two…it wasn’t that easy this time to fake/create reality.

Katie Holmes baggy jeans aren’t so bad! Also, Tim Gunn is entitled to his opinions about who has the better style and about jeans, and I loved his comment on the last episode of Project Runway, Wednesday, August 20, when he criticized Blayne, etc.

“wow, she IS human~”
