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?

This is a beautiful Armani suit, that is if we were talking about for Meryl Streep. It is too old especially with the hosiery. But like one post said Tom Cruise has really stepped her wardrobe up. This Dawson Creek alumni probably never guess that she would flying around the world for fashion shows. The red lipstick is really pretty on Katie.

While I do think Katie looks fabulous in the outfit, she looks closer to being 33 than 28. However, she may want to look older given the age of her much older husband, Tom. The sheer tights go with the outfit. The look is not supposed to be 2007-trendy, it’s supposed to channel timelessness, class, and sophistication.

It hardly matters if Victoria was ‘cold’ for fashion. I guareentee they were outside for a matter of seconds anyway.

Love her look the stockings are elegant and sexy, especially if the are garter and hose and not pantyhose

I think they both look great. I love both of their dresses. I guess I personally would wear the stockings, given the weather, but they are both big girls!

I think Katie looks just fine.. elegant if anything.. she makes sheer tights look good and classy on her.. common there are worse things that celebreties do to coordinate their looks..

It is a fashion faux pau to not wear nylons, but in Katies case a nice nude pear would have been a better choice. I think that all these stars that go bare legged should be arrested by the fashion police. There is nothing wrong with nude nylons with any skirt or dress, black on occasion, but its the people who break out the tan and navy that should think again….

I totally agree! They really do look dreadful. If I wear stockings(I’m living in Canada)I go for textured opaque or nothing. You would think she would pick up some dress-sense from Posh and forgodssakes she is in the fashion capital!!

I think that black hose are fine for someone in their 20’s, assuming the rest of their outfit is age-appropriate… which Katie’s is definitely not.

Katie wore opague hose to make her legs look thinner. Katie has a pear shaped body. Her lower body is unusually heavier and her legs are thicker, compared to her upper half. Posh is thin all around so, going bare is meaningless to her.
