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 has the bone structure that most of us would love to have. She is willow tall. Both Elie Saab and the House of Balenciaga would welcome the opportunity to design a memorable gown for her; something not to fru fru for Katie is a classic gal.

Everyone knows darn well that she’ll be deck out in virginal white – head to toe – it’ll be a “wow” dress.

Come on Katie – you’ve been shacking up with Tom for how long now and you’ve got a baby! Didn’t you once come from a Catholic upbringing??? White is totally inappropriate for you. I don’t care if this is your first wedding – probably won’t be your last either – look at Tom’s track record – not real good!

But please wear those sunglasses – DORK!!!!

Right on Kim and Trees! I’m sure she’ll wear whatever Tom and the Scientologists tell her to wear.
BTW – I have a life and it is awesome (not perfect), but awesome anyway.

I think Katie should wear some classic yet feminine looking. She is an old-fashioned looking girl with great facial features. The dress should be elegant yet sophisticated. She will look fabulous no matter what she chooses.

Uhm….eh hem. I would just gather a guess, but I am assuming that NONE of you live with Tom and Katie? The media shows us what they want us to see, would it sell if they didn’t put some ridiculous headline to grab our attention. I am saying NO. I read theses magazines as pure entertainment, I don’t take anything personally unless I see or hear it for myself. The people who do, remind me of the kids in elementary school that were jealous and hateful and were so insecure with themselves they had to critize other people. Sound familiar?

i dont care what wedding dress she wears, WHAT WAS SHE THINKING WHEN SHE PUT ON THAT BLACK DRESS ????????????

L. Larsen on

She has a bad posture, so she should not wear a dress that does not cover her shoulders, or somethig that cling to her figure. She lookes very beautiful in the kind of dress she wore the at the opening of her fiancées latest movie.

Alena on

Who cares what Katie wears seriously! Does anyone know that there are more interesting topics in this world other than Katie and her psycho fiance?

I love the people who get this far in the screen and then pick on the people for commenting. What made you look? Perhaps you should be reading your quantum physics or calculus books…

Natalie on

i think that she should wear something with straps because in this picture it doesnt lok like she has a lot of support and looks a little slouchy.
