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 must be “out of it” because I think Katie looks classy and elegant. Posh looks good too, but its not June, its January and I think Katie is dressed better. Just my opinion. Also, I didn’t know sheer black stockings were “out”. I thought those were classic. Do people really wear bare legs at the office?? I haven’t seen any.

Sheer black hose looks awful… if she’s cold she would be much better off with skin color hose that looks like nude legs, even though it isn’t!

Honestly? Some of you think that dress would look better WITH tights? Come on … think about what you’re saying. If tights are her only “stylish/trendy” option, then she needs a different dress. But since she picked that dress (a little “mature” looking, but very classy), then sheer hose is the only way to go if your trying to stay warm. But TIGHTS? Out of the QUESTION. They are fast becoming an overrated “Cute” trend. Maybe she doesn’t WANT to look like she’s 15. Some people are just fine with growing up. Imagine that. Wear what you want Katie! You look just fine.

Personally I think they both look great!!!! Posh looks cute with no hose and Katie looks like a “motherly type” so the hose fit her. She actually looks much older in this picture so maybe to keep young and fresh she should drop the hose. But what do I know, I don’t have a stylist, I’m just a simple girl from NC.
Smiles, who knows with a new baby maybe Katie didn’t have time to shave so she just hid it with hose. hehehe

Katie looks elegant. A lot of women SHOULD wear something on their boney, white legs, they would look better. Sheer hose are great!!!

I think Katie looks elegant and sophisticated. You don’t always have to be “trendy”!! I think with the weather, she is right on and a class act. Quit trying to be “like everybody else”.

Bare legs is way too stark in that kind of weather. (I’m with the Canadian on that.) What’s wrong with pantyhose? I agree that tights are great, but not with a refined outfit like that……it’s like wearing a stocking cap or mittens! I don’t get it why opaque would be any better than what she is wearing.

well i think all of you are lemings.

oh my gosh heaven forbid Katie deigned to wear something not dictated as “fashionable” by Vogue or Kitson or Sienna Miller or any of the other so called dictators of fashion. just because opaque tights are “in” right now why does that mean sheer hose are out. she looks classy and it works for her outfit and the occasion. shes wearing something that looks good on her and not just following whats in.

i mean really how many people are there who actually look good in skinny jean or bubble skirts or voluminous tops, probably only about a third of the amount of people who wear them anyway because thats whats fashionable. and seriously who here would have even considered for a second buying tapered jeans five years ago, i’m sure every single one of you would have turned up your nose in disgust

Yuck! Too old! Good God, Katie! Dress your age!

Katie’s velvet dress is quite nice, and call me old fashioned, but I prefer the sheer stockings she is wearing to tights, which would be too much head-to-toe black and would make her look matronly. As for Posh, how silly she looks in near freezing weather with(skinny)bare arms and legs…would she wear a suede jacket in the middle of summer? Suddenly, everywhere you look, all you see are pictures of Posh shopping all over the world…scowling and looking annoyed at the press. Remember, her talent is being a former Spice Girl(ick) and her current notoriety is derived from being married to a famous soccer star. I am incredulous that she is getting so much instant and constant media coverage. She looks like she wants some privacy, so I say, For God’s Sake, give it to her!!
