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?

The hairdo with the stones is actualy nice and with all those very minimalistic gowns it might turn into a trend.I wish though that she added another accessory in the mint green color like purse or shoes or even the scarf .Her whole outfit was very matchy matchy although I think the dress was gorgeous and with those stones there was just no color balance.

I HATE It !!!!!

The hair is good if it distracts from the giant cankles Katie sports. Tom, the Lillipution, probably “chose” Katie because of her slouch–please see Dawson’s Creek reruns in order to experience them fully.

I think katie looked great but has lost too much wieght. And I did wonder what the ridiculous embellishment on Beyonce’s dress was. Make note: shells in hair piece, ok. Shells on a gown, silly.

I thinks Katie is pretty, has a great body and lovely hair. Everything she wears always looks gorgeous on her. Beautiful dress and perfect hair Katie. And having Tom as a husband ‘oh my gosh’, she’s the luckiest girl. Some people are jealous!!!

She’s been looking really great these days (after having the baby) – probably the best she’s ever looked since she’s started.

Katie looks lovley when she steps out, but I would like to see her dress more like a 28 year old vs 40.
