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?

I think it’s already much of a trend. Maggie G also wore some feathers on her hair at the Oscars.

Gosh Katie looks so pretty with that hairstyle, it’different but beautiful! No wonder why Tom married her!

HA HA! Bec, I was wondering too about Katie Holmes’ nose. I thought that maybe she had a nose job.

As for the hairstyle…from the front, she looks lovely. However, the back-side looks like too much is going on. Maybe less hair toys and she would have looked just fine.

I really like the concept, but somehow this ends up looking like some sort of wet seaweed…she should have gone for something a little more jewel-toned. Excited to see what she’s going to try next.

i don’t care what anyone says… she’s gorgeous and classy. AND you don’t get that stuck up vibe from her. or atleast i don’t. i can’t wait till she starts working again.

You mean, IF she starts working again, laura.

I like Katie’s hair from the front but the back is too much – it’s matronly. Maybe dressing old is her way of compensating for their 16-year age difference.

1.Katie has always been pretty and classy.
Her dress looks fine, I just DON’T like this hairstyle.
The hair accessories don’t match with the dress and I
think she’d look better with her hair down or have some
soft curls.She should have kept the hair simple with
maybe one jewel toned accessory would be fine.

2.I think she looks better with her ex Chris Klein.
She and Tom don’t look right together.
He looks like the controlling type.

I thought she looked absolutely beautiful, I’m not so sure about the hair though now that I see the back. And to the person who said that Katie needs to work on her arm flab- Give me break and grow up. Why do people have to be so rude on these blogs?

Patty on

Has she had some work done? Although she looks much older than she really is – not fresh and pretty any more.

Many people didn’t like Katie’s dress, but I did. I thought she looked beautiful.

I do like her hair, and I like how she did something different. Although I agree with what someone has already stated, she looks a little matromonial. Maybe if she only used the stones on the side of her bun, and not over used them, it would look more better (imo). I do applaud her for doing something different and elegant looking. The Tom subject is none of my business, Katie looks very happy. She’ll decide if her marriage is right for her or not. It’s not like marriages last along time in the celebrity realm anyways….sad, but true.
