Katie Holmes' Stone-Studded Updo

02/27/2007 at 02:00 PM ET

While others were deciding between long straight hair or retro curls — Katie Holmes had a more original idea in mind for her Oscars night updo. To accessorize her soft blush-toned Armani Prive dress, the actress added stone embellishments around her slicked back bun. And if those pale green stones look a touch familiar, they also graced Beyonce’s Armani Prive dress as well. We think the flash of pastel looks lovely against Katie’s dark hair, and it’s always nice to see something a little outside the norm that actually works! Will this be the next big trend?

in my best robot voice: whatever tom wants…whatever tom wants…whatever tom wants…

There’s something off about this woman ever since hooking up with The Tool.

Very cute, but a titch too bridal for the occasion.

Stunning is right! I have never thought her style played up her classic beauty, although it was always “correct” or “fashionable”. I have admired her recent transition to a more mature/unique/classic/whatever styles. HOWEVER – somebody get her a sandwich!! After the gorgeous hair all I see are bones!

First, that dress is a horrible color. Does it even count as a “color”? I really dislike flesh tones.

Second, her hair, while interesting-looking, reminds me of what I wore as a kid in my hair for ballet recitals.

I agree with the realblonde, something very stepfordish about Kate Cruise. She never seems genuinely happy, it’s never really believable. It’s as if Tom has her running about with Vicky Beckham (’cause her kids and hubby are hardly ever with her either) so he can have the baby all to himself. Why should she go back to work when she’s rich and has a newborn darling daughter to raise? And how come Tom’s other kids are never seen with Nicole? It seems like a very strange household, and a lot creepy when Tom’s making-out with Katie at the kids ballgame… yuck!yuck!yuck! Weird! As to the hair- it makes her look like a boy from the front, plastic and tacky from the back. While the dress makes her look like she’s copying Eleanor Roosevelt’s style once again. Somebody get her away from the programmers and introduce her to Reese Witherspoon ;)

What was she thinking??? It looks like she just took some little stones from a garden, or off a beach! EWW!

I love the way she did something different than the others. It is the Oscars party so doing something different more classic looks great. The dress was amazing too. She did wear her hair down long at the Armani pre award party.

Love the look! She always looks so happy! Go for it girl! Not every girl gets a fairytale wedding and the man of their dreams! I’m happy for her, Tom and Suri!

Actually she’s 28. I imagine I’d be wearing the same type of dress-up stuff when 5 years from now, when I’m her age.

But I do have to admit that she’s matured her look a wee too quickly in the past 2 years. Her hair here looks lovely though.
