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?

Hey AshleyL,

Please, excuse me, if you felt my comment was directed to you, for it was not at all!

I, personally, don’t think your comment was rude. Yes, it’s your opinion which is perfectly fine, the reason I made that comment of “hiding behind a computer screen” was to point out to alice that comments in “off the rack” can be taken out of context, considering the form of communication here, computers! My comment was a general observation of how some people think that comments are “rude” when in fact they are flat out opinions. I just think it’s rude when people here in “off the rack” feel the need to attack other people because of their comments and think it’s okay.

Well, I hope my comment wasn’t dizzing for you…no offense in intended….I try to make comments as observations, give a different perspective, and try to encourage when it’s duely needed.

Nothing about this is gorgeous.

Besides looking like a robot when Tom wanted to “show her off”, she looked like a boy! Her skin was painted the same color as her dress and her hair was gelled to her head. Tom is a WEIRDO.

dude…your wedding is OVER. i repeat OVER. i can’t stress this enough…she is married to an old fart! duh! that’s why she has to dress like one. duh! stop asking why she looks like that or why she dresses like that or why she acts like that…etc. it’s because *drum roll please* she’s married to an old fart. and yes, we already know he’s got some loose screws up in his head. back to the topic…the hair. it’s ok, BUT i agree with those who say less is more…BUT her dress was simple (even though long), so…the nose? yes now that you’ve pointed it out it looks like nicole’s. let’s wait for katie to go blonde, shall we? yeah? yeah?

No dear, no flab on my arms. But you obviously have some insecurity issues if you feel the need to make catty comments about some chick you don’t even know. Have a nice day…

The stones in her hair are the same as beyonce’s. Cause they are both dressed by Armani.

Hey, anyone can say their opinion and express it as they please. Usa is still a democracy, ain’t it? Unlike the crazy nut who’s ruling my country.

andrea on

She’s absolutely gorgeous! Did I mention that I look like her?
