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!

I’m thinking more along the lines of a clown suit, since she will be marrying that circus freak Tom Cruise!!

She should wear something grand. Not huge…but, with beautiful small details…nothing too busy. I think it’s pretty impossible for her to look bad! Just highlighting what is already there should be enough. Something elegant..classy…and stunning.

Is it just me, or do those sunglasses look ridiculous with that dress??

I think Katie should wear something by A.D.I.D.A.S., a track suit so she can run in the other direction!


I think Katie should wear something close fitting at the top, then flare out at the bottom. It should be a very romantic flowy dress. Katie will look good in anything she wears thought, because she has great self confidence!

Hopefully she doesn’t pick a wedding dress that looks anything like this black dress. I don’t think that this dress is flattering at all to the bust, shoulder or neck area. The poor kid is slouching and it looks like the chest is practically hanging to the belly button and she’s only in her 20’s?

these comments are really entertaining so far. i am with the other poster in that she should wear something off white or cream. she has a baby already and they have been living together for how long? she is a pretty girl though and i am sure will look great in most things. no heels please! or shes sure to dwarf tom.

I dont find a thing attractive about this girl. I could care less what she wears for a wedding dress. I mean come on how could a man go from the lovely nicole to katie? as for the dress she is wearing its nice but her breasts need support something terrible

JEEEEEEZ…. talk about slamming Tom. We may not agree with all his beliefs but if we knew most anyones crazy beliefs in Hollywood we would all shriek and RUN. One thing about Tom is I do believe he is a good partner. As for the dress…. Katie has super conservative idea and will probably have something VERY simple. She will look gorgeous and whats MOST important is their life together….not the dress.

I agree with Kim! Run, Katie, Run!! LOL But whatever she wears, I hope she doesn’t wear heels. Or a dress like this black one! I agree with Steph – it doesn’t flatter her bust. And yes, Courtney, those sunglasses look silly with that dress. She has been looking less and less attractive lately.
