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 personally hate the opaque tights look. Love the sheer stockings.

Umm.. Why do people think sheer leggings are for old people? I think it’s very elegant, and I would wear them anytime, and I’m 21 years old!

What is UP with Katie Holmes dressing like a grandma??? That looks like something a 60-year-old would wear to a black tie wedding!

Ops, I meant sheer stockings.

Bare-legged would not suit Katie because of her fair skin. Opaque tights, fashionable or not, simply wouldn’t look right with her choice of dress, in my opinion. I’m not a Katie fan by ANY means, but I think she looks just lovely in this photo.

I am a professional working woman. I must wear hose to work when I wear skirts. Opaque tights, in my opinion, are a terrible trend. They overpower practically everything that anyone wears with them. For example, black opaque tights with a white dress? Come on! It’s a high-school-uniform look to me. The only reason people wear it is because celebrities do it. I think Katie looks fine.

By the way, Marie – I totally agree.

Posh (no surprise here) looks ridiculous~ the man behind her is wearing a winter hat and she’s got short sleeves and bare legs. People mag is just as looney to think bare sking is better than hose, not everyone wants to put on fake tan and some skin is too white- and dark tights look schoolgirlish. OWryly~ I said the same thing on the last Posh pic, that the women are just sent shopping- instead of being attentive mothers to their children. You never see Katie out alone with her babygirl- she was only an incubator… who in the world would want to hang alone with another woman when you have an adorable young daughter at home. I think Katie is on some sort of medication that makes her lack any maternal instincts- but makes her want to dress matronly, lol. And Posh looks like a sour scarcrow, including straw hair.

I have to go with Posh. She’s underdressed but I’m sure the warmth from everyone’s stares was keeping her warm. Poor Katie looks more like Suri’s fashionable Grandmother than mother.

The only place I wear stockings are to work (because they MAKE me) and to bible school (because they MAKE me). Try Sally Hanson’s pantyhose in a can. It’s great for those of us who need a little color.

And, whatever happened to a pantsuit in the winter? A real diva can wear pants and not look drab.

katie looks like she stepped out of Vogue from 1989. and posh does look under-dressed for the weather, but impeccable as always.
