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?

Roketinu & J….hilarous comments.
I think she looked really beautiful, like the hair but less jewels in her hair would have been better. There is nothing wrong with dressing classy and mature, she is a mom after all, better then trashy and sleezy like some of the other young celebs these days.
The comment about the flabby arm, that’s insane. She looks amazing after having a child, she looks toned but she does need to put some meat on her, a bit too skinny.

Hey j………….
Oh my lord, you are funny!!!!

I do think the overall look is pretty and romantic but, the hair also calls to mind those funny looking sea creatures that cling to rocks in the high and low tide line, perhaps pink stones would have been a better choice??

As for, the “flabby arm” debate that seems to have sprung up in this blog……is actually relaxed muscle tone. Katie seems to have a rather buff/toned upper body…it’s her legs that need the focus. I think her trapezius (the muscles of the upper back near the neck) are rather developed or maybe she is slouching a bit because of her dress, but those muscles look bigger!?!?!? Dunny know!?

Hey Alice, not all of us here write rude bloggings. I guess it’s easy for some people to write rude things here because they are hiding behind a computer screen and keyboard…???

Anyway, I still think j’s comment is the best…hee-hee!!

I think all those stones in her hair was overkill. Remove a few pieces. Less is better!

When you’re standing next to a midget all the time, and are forced to crouch because he has short-man’s syndrome, of course after awhile you’re back is going to show the signs.

Carry on.

Eww, at first glance it looks as if she has mint leeches crawling on her head, this is a little much. To tell the truth it looks as if the top of Beyonce’s Oscar dress threw up on Katie’s head.

If you are referring to me enigma with your “I guess it’s easy for some people to write rude things because they are hiding behind a computer screen” comment, I must say that I would tell anyone that I think Katie Holmes has flabby arms. In fact we were just talking about it at work… and actually I don’t think it’s rude, it’s just my opinion. It really shouldn’t be taken to heart…

i don’t really like this at all.

Maybe for a little girls ballet performance but not for her age. It does look like it is from Beyonce’s dress though!
