FIRST LOOK: Katie Holmes Channels Jackie Kennedy in New Role

06/29/2010 at 02:00 PM ET

Todd G/Splash News Online

The baby bump Katie Holmes showed off on Monday was not in fact a sibling for Suri, but part of a costume for her role as Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy in the History Channel’s upcoming miniseries, The Kennedys. Coiffed in the famously chic first lady’s signature Camelot-era bouffant, the star was spotted on the Ontario, Canada set in a robin’s egg-blue shift, paired with pearls, a rhinestone circle pin–and a prosthetic belly–evoking Jackie’s classic polished look, even while in maternity clothes. Holmes, a trendsetter in her own right as well as a burgeoning designer, will no doubt feel right at home playing dress up as one of America’s seminal fashion plates. Tell us: Are you excited to see Katie as Jackie O? –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley

Katie Holmes a trend setter??? I think NOT. Every picture I see of her she looks like a bag lady.

Lucifer on

She looks like her, but thats about it. Katie Holmes can’t act. She’ll ultimately ruin the movie when she opens her mouth and starts ‘acting’.

I think Katie is a class act. If you took the time to see, really see her work and not judge her…she’s a beautiful lady with a happy full life..let’s all look for the good in others.

Why don’t you haters get a life instead of picking on everyone else! Katie isn’t “seasoned” enough for you to make snap judgements about her acting skills – she could do just fine! If not – hey – at least she gave it a try! Let’s see you try it!!

Since when did Katie become a trendsetter? I also do not think she is a good choice for playing Jackie. Very few people followed Katie’s career after Dawson’s Creek until she married Tom.
