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?

Pantyhose vs stockings? Depending on the skirt length only – in my opinion. Unless, you go for trashy Britney look. I have more problem with Victoria’s bareness than with Kate’s stockings. Tights don’t go with a dress like the one she’s wearing, whatever is in style right now.
As for the Stepford wife’s comments, just remember how Nicole looked before she hooked up with Tom. I definitely see the pattern here!

can you tell me what these two women are about? Just hanging out spending the money their husbands earned. At least VB made her husband a fashion icon, but what about Mrs Cruise? she looks old, what does she do with her life? shopping with VB, hanging out with VB, she isn’t smiling the way she used to, she looks really old, and she’s only 27…She needs to find a real occupation, spendind her husband’s money will soon be boring.

How can bare legs make a better choice than sheer stockings??? That makes no sense at all. Besides, the sheer black look better in the winter than bare legs.

I think Katie looked elegant. Ask any man and he will go for the sheer black stocking. Posh needs a coat.

Didn’t Posh’s mother tell her to cover up her legs in winter, so she didn’t catch a cold?! In any case, I like opaque tights, too, but in a pinch, I think sheer hose works better than bare legs in the middle of winter! And who says pantyhose are “out”—is that really true??

Discussing…absolutely not!!!!

I think Katie has a really great fashion style, but I must agree with everyone i hate pantyhose. A man had to of invented them just to torture us. I definatly like the bare leg better, or even fishnets

I hate to say this, but I suspect that black sheer hose making a slow, kicking and screaming comeback. I’m seeing it more and more on women in NYC today.

And the problem with Katie’s look was not the hose. The problem is that her entire outfit is too old, too sophisticated for her. She looks like she’s pushing 40 not 27 in this dress

I really miss Nicole Kidman being with Tom Cruise. she’s one of the most simple but ever stylish famous woman I know. She’s beautiful. She’s like Champagne when Katie Holmes gives me a flavour of Diet Coke. She’s a tremendous actress, Tom Cruise looked smarter whan they were together. But life goes on…
Sorry Kat, hope Tom has enough money to keep you busy spending it for a long time, but please, as an idependant woman, I can’t stand this dollish picture you give. Enjoy your husband’s money, but try to get your own!Even Paris Hilton tries…
