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 think that you all have a right to your thoughts, however, this is not the time or the place. You are to be discussing options for her wedding dress, not personally attacking her.

Katie would look beautiful in a long sleek old fashion satin gown with her figure. No matter what she chooses she will be a beautiful bride. I really hope the best for her.

I am not sure if she should wear an winter white straight jacket or a prison jump suit. Either would be fine in that situation. I think it would be better if Tom wore the dress. What will the father of Suri, Chris Klein, wear?

I can’t believe the comments that are comming out of some of you guys. Common leave the couple alone. I know that if they did not want so much publicity they should not have become actors most of you are personally attacking their life, child and them. So Let me guess you are all leading perfect lives, have perfect kids and the perfect marriage. I highly doubt it the only thing that is perfect in your lives is when you are reading the national enquirer. Get a grip quit smasking someone elses life and start concentration on yours. I can’t imaging what Katie and Tom would think if they read some of your posts on here. Probably pretty hurt. To all the negative posters out there stop being bullies and remember that celebs are people to and they have feelings.

how horrible to have you private relationship go through all of these horrible comments. she is a pretty girl and for you who say otherwise take a look in the mirror you critisize people to make your self feel better I mean come on grow some self esteem yourself there. no matter how pretty you think you are or how ugly you think you are there is someone always prettier or uglyier than you so get over yourselves. who are we to judge weather or not they love eachother. and just because you have a baby with someone before you married them does not make you a bad person. you just did things a little out of order. which obviously is fine with socioty these days many people do that these days so leave ’em alone already! go to some counseling or something to work on the problems you obviously have.

I love Katie and think she has such a beautiful, elegant and demure style. She simply got caught in a bad posture moment in this picture. I heard Vera Wang made her dress, which I am sure will beautiful.

And are you people kidding me with the wearing white with a baby thing? So what? Are we living in the Victorian era or what? I am getting married this Summer and when I went shopping for my wedding dress half the people in there had kids or had been married already. If your logic is only virgins should wear white I think you are out dated. Most high school age girls are sexually active these days like it or not- just watch MTV honey it doesn’t take long to figure it out.

A straight jacket!

I think that Katie is very beautiful but I think the Giambattista Valli gown is unflattering as it seems to be falling down from her bust. It does not do alot to enhance her upper body posture. I would recommend something that is not strapless…and not so “Sex and the City” girly. (I love this show as well.) I think it should be more sleek, long, and straight..perhaps going out only slightly at the bottom.

you’re right~enough of picking on them. AND just talking about them. who really cares what she wears? i’ve heard enough of them both to last me awhile.
