How do you solve a problem like Katie Holmes?
I pondered her need to look like a college student running out for coffee first-thing in the morning.
Or is it ‘I’m playing the role of dumpy nanny to my own kid, so no one accuses me of neglect or having a high falutin lifestyle’?
Or ‘I just love hideous boots and comfy knits’?
She sure loves that bag.
Katie is far from a style icon. These three looks from a single week in New York hammer the nail in the coffin of a career in fashion.
I get that she’s a working single mom with the world’s most famous only-child to raise, but COME ON. Buckets of cash, designers at her feet, reams of assistants and staff at her disposal, and this is what she chooses as her down-time wardrobe?
These are the ‘don’t look at me’ tactics of 50 Shades of Greige herself, Kate Middleton. These are gals who can turn it out when they want to Having married into the kind of fame that means that there will be a paparazzi camera in their faces for the rest of their lives, both Kates seem to be trying to bore the media into f*cking off.
It could well work in the former Mrs Cruise’s case.
I was momentarily interested at Holmes’ sex-ified look for Narciso Rodriguez launch recently, but these drab looks make the feeling a distant memory.
