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?

Is she over 45?, I thought she was under 30.

Katie has been dressing way to old for her age since she married Tommy boy. She needs to go back to the way she use to look, she is over doing it now get rid of the old lady outfits and stalkings!!

To respond to the question whether anyone wears pantyhose anymore – yes. I’m only 31, but bear legs is completely inappropriate at most office and office evening functions- at least in the legal profession unless it’s summer and Friday and even then casual Fridays it’s highly suspect. It’s still seen as young, unpolished and unprofessional.

Sheer black pantyhose may not be the style anymore, but I think bare legs with evening dress looks ridiculous with many dresses, especially in the winter on pasty pale legs with too summery strappy sandals. Opaque tights are way too casual for evening dress like Katie and Posh are wearing, Katie would have been better off with nude pantyhose.

In a world where there are so amny really important things to think about, whether or not Katie Holmes Crusie does or does not wear stockings is a total waste of brain power. Please folks, let’s get real, and put our money and our opinions where our intention is, somewhere where it really matters.


I love Katie! She’s a natural beauty ; She looks fab , classy and lovely as always! TEAM KATIE!!!!!!!!!

What the heck is wrong with sheer black stockings? I think they’re much more sophisticated than tights. Plus tights would be way to clingy with the skirt she’s wearing.

Katie looks elegant!! The hose do NOT take away from the look at all. She’s doing her own thing, good for her.
It seems most people today are scared to actually wear their clothes the way they want to, because they’re afraid to be judged!! BY WHO!! Who are they people that have the authority to do that. It’s pathetic really!!

Katie looks chic, polished and incredibly stylish. The stockings give her an air of refinement and culture. I am 17 and if I were wearing the amazing Armani dress Kate is wearing, I would wear black stockings too. What has our society come to that we think it’s scary when we see a woman actually dressed in a modest and refined way? I admire Katie Kolmes for not feeling the need to flash her bare legs. I wish more of Hollywood would follow Katie’s example, instead of teaching young girls that the only way to get noticed is to wear short skirts and show a lot of cleavage.

I don’t know who Katie’s stylist is, or even if she has one, everytime I see a picture of her she is dressed old and frumpy. That outfit looks like a 60 year old should be wearing it!!!!!
