What Do You Think of Katie Holmes's Premiere Look?

Her performance received good reviews, but we’re not so sure people will be raving about the outfit Katie Holmes selected for the Dead Accounts premiere party.

For the Broadway play’s debut in N.Y.C. on Thursday evening, the star chose a busy feminine floral-print dress with black-and-white embellishment at the neckline, a black crochet-like panel at the waist and flared sleeves, plus a lemon clutch and Gio Diev strappy pumps.

We can’t say we strongly dislike any one part of the outfit (love the print, love the sexy touch at the waist, love the clutch, we could go on …), but all together, there’s just a lot going on with this ensemble … much like the plot of the play.

One aspect of her look we can’t critique: her Duchess of Cambridge-esque mane, a surprising — and welcome — departure from the way Holmes normally styles her hair (that would be stick-straight).

But we want to know what you think: Do you like Holmes’s outfit? What about her hair?

ever look at some of your past outfits? i have and thought “oh my gosh- did i actually wear that?” katie is usually pretty on target. give her a break this one time.

ever look back at some of your past outfits and say “oh my gosh, did i actually wear that?” katie is usually on the mark. everyone slips up, sometime. she’s a courageous young lady, who is just trying to build her own life. does it really matter if she has an off day, and why make a big deal of it?

I’m glad that Katie is out trying to find something that she enjoys doing. Kudos to her. I like her acting, she’s grown up, mature. She seemed to have a good upbringing. As long as she’s happy who cares what ppl think katie…do you

she always looks like an orphan. not well put together at all. she covers up all that beauty and what is probably a great figure.

Roxy on

It looks frumpy and old for someone of her age.

Dianne on

which salvation army clothing drop did she fish this out of? aren’t we getting a little ridiculous with her lack of style. . .

Carole Ann on

I wish she showed better style. Since she broke up with Tom, I think she’s just trying to find her own style. She does well with casual styles but has found the dressed up version of Katie yet.
