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 is not “unatractive” by any means but to me she just doesn’t isn’t anything special. She looks like the “girl next door” but in many photos she seems frazzeled or simply unkept. I don’t think she’s a very good actress either. Just my opinion but I could certainly pass on anything she’s associated with professionally.

Katie’s personality is so colourless I can’t imagine why she’d be considered perfect “brand” material for anything. With her plastic perma-grin always on display, it seems her Stepford Wife persona is the only role she’s perfected.

Katie looked SO MUCH BETTER without the hair extensions. Her shorter hair made her look much more sophisticated and mature. Now she looks like everyone else with blah hair!That girl has some BIG OLE LEGS!!!

I can’t wait until the skeletal look goes away. Most models don’t just don’t look pretty anymore. And actresses are doing the same thing. Really sad.

Katie’s legs were always humongous compared to her upper body.
