Would You Wear Sheer Hose Like Katie? Or Go Bare Like Posh?

01/24/2007 at 05:00 PM ET

Posh and Katie are at it again! Back in Paris where we first noticed their budding friendship last fall, the ladies are in town for couture week and the BFF’s headed out to an Armani store opening together last night. Though both women were wearing elegant black dresses, there was one major difference between their looks — Posh went for bare legs while an Armani Privé-clad Katie covered up in sheer black stockings. Though the nighttime Parisian temperature was near freezing, we can’t imagine wearing sheer black hose! We would either go for bare legs like Posh or choose opaque black tights. What about you? Would you wear sheer hose like Katie? Or do you go for bare like Posh?

No! THat look is too old for her. She is 27 for god’s sake.

Katie is looking very beautiful in this photo…from the waist up, that is! Sheer hose are extremely outdated! Go for opaque next time Katie! Victoria actually looks cute too, but bare legs AND bare arms? At least wear a coat if it is cold outside, Posh, dont freeze for fashion!

Maybe it’s skewed perception on my part {or perhaps just a smudge on my glasses}, but does Katie look alarmingly Stepford-wifish to anyone else? If she is such a good friend to Sour Puss Beckham, she should nudge her every now and again and quetly tell her to smile real purty and to stop looking like she just got a whiff of something odious. As for the hosiery question … so People people {in their infinite wisdom} think bare legs in near freezing temps is a better choice than sheer black stockings. Hmmm, must be some logic buried in there that I’m missing. I’d go the opaque tights route meself. Cheers!

No one under 50 should ever wear “stockings”, they make her look old, Posh is right on with the adorable dress, Katie in stockings and black velvet is dressing about 30 years older than necessary. Perfect, classy outfit for Barbara Walters or Oprah not Katie!

If I had VB’s skin colour I’d probably go with bare legs in that dress. But my skin colour is more like Katie’s so I’d scare some kids with bare legs. I can understand why she doesn’t wear opaque tights – I’d have gone with a patterned tight rather than plain. Opaque tights just seem so casual when you’re wearing an outfit like she has on. Just because it’s fashion right now doesn’t mean it looks good with everything. Then again I wouldn’t wear a velvet suit but it is Armani Prive I supose.

We never knew Katie could be a fashionista … in her years before TomKat, she was a very simple cute girl. No clues whatsoever that she likes fashion at all. There are some women who even when they do not have the financial capacity (yet) love fashion already in their own little way, but with Katie… no clue at all. With Posh, you can already tell just with her name that she is a fashionista even before meeting David.

Well the good thing about them being rich after marriage is that they shop and put their money on the RIGHT elegant clothes…. nothing trashy at all.

I do not know if you have ever been to Canada but bare legs in the winter are not a possibility and opaque thights with a sophisticated evening wear “ruins” the finesse of the look…
Sometimes fashion needs to get a little smarter..

I love what they both are wearing, but i would probably go for Posh’s style cuz i really like to be more opened even though katie’s dress is gorgeous but i would go with Posh’s and besides she my idol!!
Real Madrid much suerte ante el Levante!!
Te amo

DEFINITELY TOO OLD!!! Unless it’s 30 degrees or less then you put something on your legs and it’s not sheer hose, wear Tights. They make sooooo many nice patterned tights, take advantage of thos. Posh got it RIGHT!!!!!!

I think one of the key elements of good taste in fashion is to dress to the ocassion, and that includes the weather. So why on earth is Posh wearing a short-sleeved dress with no tights and no coat in the parisian winter? Completely tasteless. I don´t get the sandals in winter fashion either, are these “celebs” incapable of understanding a weather forecast or at least look outside the window?
