Would You Wear Overalls Like Katie Holmes?

04/09/2010 at 10:55 AM ET


Talk about a fashion comeback! Yesterday, we spotted Katie Holmes rocking the ultimate throwback to the ’90s–overalls! Complete with strategic bleaching and patchwork knees, these Madewell overalls look like they came straight from Katie’s Dawson Creek days. The star is no stranger to setting denim trends (remember those boyfriend jeans?) but do you think her newest look will catch on–or should overalls remain on the farm? Tell us: Would you wear overalls like Katie?–Andrea DeSimone

No, I would not wear those. I think Katie is dressed sloppy. For a millionaire, she goes to the extreme of dressing to casual. Change your look Katie and wear some makeup too!

Never would I wear overalls! There are so many beautiful styles out there that would look beautiful on Katie, but it doesn’t look like she cares much about fashion. I just hope the 80’s never makes a comeback. Especially the hair.

Just wondering, does Tom Cruise forbid Katie from wearing makeup or is this a cry for help? She looks depressed all the time.

I think Katie is sliding down hill fast in the fashion category.It’s like she is showing Tom or maybe us that she is tired of being expected to look a certain way. I don’t find her pretty anymore. She puts no effort into her hair, at times it doesn’t looked brushed and she doesn’t wear make up anymore. I wonder if something is wrong at home. I hope not but her look today compared to two years ago are night and day. She use to be one classy lady that showed great confidence. Now she’s always looking down and dresses like a starving college student.

I think she dresses the way a lot of moms of a toddler would dress…

never say never, we could substitute these comments for the boyfriend jeans she sported a couple of years ago and are only now very mainstream. wait and see!

NOOOOOOO! I hate overalls! they were the worst, they make you look like you put no effort into what you were. I will protest them!

Nope, never. Yuck. Lately, or at least since being with Tom, she always looks so sad and depressed. She just never looks happy. The majority of photos of her are bad, it doesn’t even look like she brushed her hair. It looks like she crawled right out of bed and grabbed Suri and out the door they go……and it shows she doesn’t even care or she would at least put a tad bit of makeup on. Lipgloss, maybe some blush..something.

Seriously! Just because she is wearing no makeup and has just thrown something on doesn’t mean that she is sad or depressed. She wears makeup all the time, this is part of her job. She is probably just taking a day to not look perfect. Haven’t any of you done that?

Oh my gosh, people! She can wear what she wants! Make-up or no make-up, she is a very beautiful girl. I love overalls and would happily wear them any day of the week. Good for her!

I have a toddler and a baby, and I do my best to look pull toguether, definitely better than what she looks on the pictur but I’m not as pretty as she is.

Hannah on

No way. The shoes, the overalls, the cardigan – this is not a flattering look.

Katie should NOT wear these overalls unless she is going out to shovel cow dung maybe.
What is Suri, the daughter doing shopping Bare Foot with no shoes on? YUK.

I read last year that Katie spends many thousands on clothes per year, a clothes hound. Never, Never have I seen a picture of her dressed sharp at all…dumpy, bad hairdo, no makeup. Is this something that is common to Hollywood Celebs or N.Y. to look dumpy all the time? I would love to have some of that $$ to go shopping.
