Is Katie's Disco Look a Do or Dud?

11/28/2006 at 03:25 PM ET

It’s not unusual to be inspired by classic cinematic looks — Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Diane Keaton in Annie Hall — but John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever? Katie Holmes wasn’t even born yet when the disco-tastic movie came out in 1977, but she still looked suspiciously ready to do the hustle in her white YSL suit and black blouse in Paris last month. And she’s not the only one — as you can see in our gallery, Annette Bening and Faye Dunaway have hopped on the Tony Manero bandwagon too. Tell us: Would you wear a suit like Katie’s? Is it retro-cool or a moldy-oldie?

Well, I guess we can see how many people really give a darn about what Katie Holmes wears. Mid afternoon and no comments!!!!

I am bored, so I will use a quote from the best movie ever made The Dukes of Hazzard (sarcasm)

~”Don’t you know you’re not supposed to wear white after labor day?”~

Katie Holmes is Tom Cruise’s wife,,, while her taste in clothes is unapealing on her I think people just like to see her. Got to say she is NO Nichole kiddman,, Nichole was Chanell reborn, classic,drop dead beauty and she could handle the press and her self. It seems Katie is a stepford wife for Tom. OH well that is what he wanted.

I think this is gorgeous and she wears it well. This shouldn’t be classified as a trend, I think it’s a timeless, polished look.

Normally celebrity bashing really annoys me, but Katie just gets to me. It’s not her fault, I guess, just TomKat in general… what a downgrade from Nicole! I’d like to see her dress like less of a 60 year old woman, and perhaps with all the money she and Tom have she can buy some makeup–even in their wedding portrait she looked SORELY in need of a powder!

I don’t like her outfit. She looks like she is Tom’s age with that suit on. She needs to relax and dress how she used to when she was with her ex-boyfriend.

I’ve looked at the other women in this look and I agree it looks suspiciously like John Travolta’s yet I think that Katie-alone-can pull this off. The look works for her but no one else apparently. I love her looks now and she always knows what to wear for her and not to just follow trends.

Once Annette Bening is rocking an outfit – and make no mistake, she rocks it – it’s a clue that it might not be right for a mid-to-late-20-year-old. Ironically, it’s Nicole that starred in “The Stepford Wives.”

Courtney on

Hate it.

Katie looks awful in this suit. It is not the right fabric at all for her. It looks like a frumpy wrinkled mess. She is way to young to dress like that anyway. You can obviously tell Tom is telling her how to dress. She looks about 20 years older than she is. Plus she wore this next to a dynamite looking Victoria Beckham. You just can’t compete with that. Say what you want about Posh, but at least she dresses younger than Katie does, and she usually looks better, too. Plus, did anyone else think the photo TomKat sent out of their wedding look like a prom pose from 1987? That was by far the worst wedding photo anyone has ever released by a celebrity couple. They both looked awful!
