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?

Kathi on

I’m always outdated……I wore tights when everyone was wearing hosery. I wear hosery and now everybody is wearing tights…..either they need to catch up with me or I need to catch up with them. Either way, WHO CARES???

She looks lovely by the way, though maybe a bit old for her age. but that’s the entire look, not the hosery.

I would wear Katie’s hose only if I didn’t shave my legs!

Pantyhose are like shoulder pads…..horrible and hideous not to mention, uncomfortable and fugly! I am assuming Katie (Kate) is trying to break away from her old image due to her new union with Tom Cruise but she is too often dressing age inappropriate these days and I don’t mean younger. Her hair now is better no doubt….dark roots with split ended orange hair were a definite no no, but her outfits, nothing can take away from her swaying into the style of a Republican Mom. She is riding the old lady train and while she can still remain sophisticated and elegant, she needs to remember what era she wants to go with and pick the highlights instead of the low points.

While a beautiful dress, Katie’s dress calls for pantyhose. Bare legs would look mis-matched with that dress, don’t you think? Katie has a timeless look, even aside from this outfit, and it is appropriate for her to wear pantyhose with a dress during the winter. I am not so sure about Posh…she and her style will (hopefully) fade away with time (although her style in this pic is right on).

I realize that not many people wear pantyhose anymore, but considering the formal velvet suit, bare legs would have been too contrary and tights too informal. I think she looks extremely elegant, unlike the underwearless crowd.

You know lets look at what katie wore what just 2 years ago. maybe little longer she has improved even if it’s a look to old for her. Posh well she just looks silly most time.

Katie’s suit is seriously hideous. Is that a wrap skirt I spy? And that fan collar? I think the hose are the least of her problem. Katie, my grandma called and she wants her outfit back!

I think the black sheer stockings are fine. Katie has
certainly changed her look.

Amon on

I’m not particularly a Katie or Tom fan, but I do like what she’s wearing and definitely would wear sheer hosery as well. I would NOT go bare-legged, nor would I wear tights with outfits like those pictured.

Would someone please, please, please find her a stylist. I’m so sick of her looking either completely frumpy, or 20+ years older than she actually is. And now this…sheer hose…utterly unacceptable.
