What Should Katie's Wedding Dress Look Like?

10/12/2006 at 10:26 AM ET

Following a highly public— and publicly scrutinized — courtship, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are getting close to tying the knot. And as reported in the PEOPLE.com news story, Katie told us she already has the dress. We’re dying to know what it looks like and who designed it. Was it Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, and that’s why she and Posh were front row? Was the Giambattista Valli gown (left) a warm-up for a white version? Are the rumors that she flew to Milan to pick her dress up from Armani true? Tell us: What do you think Katie’s dress should look like? Should it be old-fashioned or modern? Sleek or decadent? Let us know!

Katie should wear a cream colored gown. Strapless but not too low cut, some floral tapestry printed overlay, tapered at the waist with a long train that flows as she walks. Small pearl buttons down the back. A simple pearl necklace with small pearl stud earrings. And cream color fabric pumps with no more that a 2″ heel. She will be beautiful.

Some one of the the e mailers said while she doesn’t believe we should all agree what Tom Cruise espouses, she does believe he makes a good partner. What I want to under-stand is how a guy who walks out on a wife and two kids can be a) called a good partner and b) be described as “an amazing man”. What is good about a partner who walks out and what is amazing about a guy who leaves a wife and two kids. Call me crazy but after 34 years of marriage, I believe working on your relationship constitutes both good partnering and amazing results.

Dresses are beautiful on the outside, but in the long term, who cares?
This is all about outdoing one moment, going for the bigger and better moment the next.
As someone who has been happily married for 17 years, I say all of these outward “things” make not one iota of difference to a lasting, happy marriage.
A true relationship between two people realizes dreams, not the dress, not the acting awards, not the good looks, not the money, and certainly, not the jet-set lifestyle.

Bravo Christine and Heather, well said.
For the ones than don’t care, why are you posting a comment? To some of you, mean spirited people, shame on you!!. Once again, we are missing the point; comments about the fashion, boys and girls; no time to show your envy and jealousy.
Katie will look beautiful, no matter what she wears, because she is happy; that is the best fashion for anyone to wear. Love and peace to all.
