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?

I think the ladies look really nice. I think tights would have looked better of going bare legged verses stocking. They just look so dated.

Gripe about pantyhose on a pale white person wearing a black dress in near freezing weather? Not at the top of my list of things to be bothered about.

Well,I reckon we do have a fashion diffrence between continents. I live in France and here opaque tights are considered to be very casual…

Bare legs only look good when you you under 25. For everyone above that age: pick nude or tan ultra sheer hose.
I know Parisian women do.

I live in Milan, Italy and sheer stockings are very in and very European. Opaque stockings would’ve been too heavy for this outfit and she would’ve looked horrible. I’m sure Katie Holmes was advised by her stylists/Armani on what stockings to wear and they weren’t wrong cause she looks stylish and elegant. Unlike Victoria Beckham – just goes to prove money can’t buy class!!!!!

Katie Holmes is only 28! I saw ‘Batman begins’ yesterday and she looked so fresh and lovely in that. Now she looks and dresses like she’ s 40+. I get that she’ s into fashion now but still..act your age, girl!
