Calvin Klein Women’s Creative Director Francisco Costa and actress Katie Holmes seem to have quite the long-standing fashion crush—and nowhere was the mutual style admiration more evident than at the stunning Calvin Klein Collection spring show Thursday afternoon. “We met her before she was married,” said Costa. “She’s the perfect Calvin girl,” he added, explaining how his clothes look on her tall, modelesque figure. Holmes, who flew in from Toronto to join Julianne Moore, Kerry Washington and Isabel Lucas in the front row at the N.Y.C. show, told PEOPLE: “I just loved it. There were so many pieces I would love to have. He did an amazing job…I loved the simplicity. I loved the colors he’s chosen, the fabrics and his simple elegance.” Holmes, clad in a belted, cream-colored Calvin Klein dress, shared a quick hug and kiss after the show with Costa. The designer then turned his attention to the collection. “It was more about the body, the fabric, and obviously interesting cuts,” he said. “The new field for me is softness, and making that very sharp and crisp, which is much more difficult. It was challenging, fun, much more fluid, elongated. We started in resort with that mid-calf length…so it was a step forward.” So was Holmes, who co-designs her own line of clothes, inspired? “Very!” –Jeffrey Slonim

Katie Holmes looks like an amazon next to all the other women with her big dumpling legs. I’m soooo tired of seeing her. She’s only famous because of her husband. She can’t act; can’t sing; can’t dance.

Katie appears to be very happy, quite beautiful and wealthy, and well loved. You should be so lucky tink1217.

I have to agree with the Stepford Wife look. She was young and fun and full of life and everytime I see her now she seems in a trance,robotic. I still think nothing should come between Brooke Shields Calvin Kleins.She always looked great,still does.

And did she mention that she loved it?

I think Katie Holmes is beautiful. And she seems happily married to Tom Cruise. Who are we to judge?

LuLu…while I can appreciate your point of view…and I certainly do…I have read interviews and seen pics of her pre-Tom and she seems so much different and looked much healthier, prettier, youthful. I believe being married to him HAS changed her and in MY own opinion…it’s not for the better at all. There seems to be a “blankness” in her eyes in all honesty. I was a huge Tom Cruise fan for many years so it’s not that I think all this because he went a little bonkers a few years ago. I truly see a definite change. Just as I saw the opposite effect on Nicole Kidman after she and Tom split. She looks much happier now, much healthier.

Just an observation. But yes…that is what Katie reminds me of.

All the $cientologists are compelled to comment and defend their robot queen…

I for sure have to agree with tink1217, she doesn’t have that depth in her eyes like she used to. She’s still cute though and would definitely be a great Calvin Klein “Girl” :)
