Stars Love Bargains, Too: Katie Holmes's Gap Blouse

04/25/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Katie Holmes has a wardrobe of enviable items, from her Armani dresses to her Balenciaga bags. So when we saw this photo of her and husband Tom Cruise out to dinner in L.A., we couldn’t believe our eyes — Katie is wearing the Rodarte Trapeze Top from the new Gap Design Edition collection. We thought the collection was totally cool, and we love the way that Katie paired her simple $68 white cotton shirt with a black pencil skirt and sexy Christian Louboutin peep-toe pumps — a classic mix of high and low. Unfortunately, the shirt has sold out on the Gap website, but you can still purchase them in stores or check out the selection on Ebay.

All she does is shop. And once again she has another bag. What does she do with all the bags she has? You never see the same bag twice.

Personally i dont love katie, but she has a good sense of fashion when she became Mrs Cruise, and i love this outfit, so chic and the shoes? Perfect!

lizz on

it is really cute! i went to the website and i like the bow pocket dress, but they are all real cute.

shopgirl on

i bought this top and the trapeze dress last week and have since gotten many compliments! if it suits your style, it’s great. go gap!

Elda on

i love her whole outfit, Katie is just so naturally pretty!

angie on

Katie is FLAWLESS, really. I LOVE her sense of style, I LOVE that she is an individual in Hollywood. It seems so many actresses get caught up in being too trendry thatthey look trashy. She is an icon really.

faith on

does she EVER wear ANYTHING other than NEUTRALS??!

Helen on

I love Katie’s style and since she got married her style got better. She always looks elegant and stylish. The shoes are great.

Mary on

She always looks like she is playing dress up.

i agree with mary, i think she looks like she’s always playing dressup because she dresses a lot older than her age. since getting married, she tends to dress in very monotone, conservative pieces. yes, she does look elegant a lot of the time, but sometimes she just looks matronly. but atleast she doesn’t look tarty or cheap.

Natalie on

I think she dresses older because her facial features are younger. Facially, she looks about 23. She’s gotta balance it out.

I always think she looks beautiful. Safe, yes. but at least that way she keeps herself out of contreversy.

I also think being with her husband has done WONDERS for her. I’ve never seen her as happy, and smile as much as she has in the last two years. She is a HAPPY HAPPY woman!!

What’s wrong with buying something that isn’t thousands of dollars and completely overpriced. All those couture outfits, they’re still just plain old fabric. All your buynig is the name. So when you see a GAP top on a CELEBRITY, it’s OH MY GOD she’s sluming! You go Katie, you’d look good in something from the Dollar Store!

Marcella on

She does not shop all the time when the other 85% of her life is not captured by photogs.She’s a mom,busy supporting Tom’s charities and working on her movie. I like Katie as an actress,her style and her attitude-personality.
She’s like the modern day Audrey Hepburn.

Is anyone else bothered by the fact that $68 is presented as cheap ?? I don’t know about everyone else but I can’t afford to spend that kind of money on every shirt I own. I shop at the Gap a lot, but to me, that shirt is too expensive to buy. Even though we may like nice, designer clothes, we can’t all drop hundred of dollars in the blink of an eye on something as fleeting as fashion. Stick with the classic looks that look good on you and show off your features and assets, and add touches and accessories to make it not seem out of date.

She does look older then her age but Tom now looks younger since he married her b/c he wears his hair a little longer and he has bangs.

style_editor on

the gap shirt is a trend but here, just so plainly ugly. it makes Katie, who is naturally quite a lovely looking woman, look shapeless and pretty boring. the way the clownish gap shirt has been paired up makes her torso look too long in comparison to her body. shape up and quit buying into Vogue’s attempt to sell the underwhelming Rodarte line as being something of substance! (read Cathy Horyn’s NYT blog on the undeserving Rodarte — she’s gets it!)

Alice on

I like her classic style. I’d much rather see this than the other pantyless celebrities we usually see.

Jen on

I think Katie is becoming a fashion icon, she has her own style. I love her shoes and bags collection and whenever I see a new picture of her the first thing I do is check what kind of bag and shoes she is wearing.
I agree with the person who said she’s like the modern day Audrey Hepburn.
I also think $68 for a Gap top is not cheap.

yvonne franceschi on

She looks very classy and elegant. Yvonne

Beth on

Katie should do a Gap commercial. Because of Katie Im into sunglasses again, got the Victoria pants,so into the ballet shoes and big bags. I made my mom happy by wearing less makeup too. My mom loves Katie too because of her conservative styles not those sexualized actresses.

k on

i love the outfit..but does anyone else notice how tired she looks? wow she looks really worn down!…u would think she would cover up those dark circles before going out for the night…hhmm katies alright, nothing special to me…

Julie on

It’s really weird that someone would presume to know how Katie Holmes spends the majority of her time from the, um, maybe 2-3 pictures they see of her a week? And photographers don’t take pictures of her at home being a mom, or on the set of her new movie (yet), etc. They take pictures when she’s out in public — in other words, when she’s at a restaurant or shopping. Does this mean all she does is eat and shop? That’s silly.

Chanel on

Katie is absolutely adorable and I love what she wears even her non glam outfits. If I were her I would be tired from all her jetlags. She is a mom to Suri and two teens,she is working and she travels back & forth to L.A. and Louisiana. But she is there all supportive for her hubby’s events and fundraisers. All this parties they get invited too and cute Suri just celebrated her B-day too.
I love she’s being herself. Im sure other celebs would be too busy dabbing on makeup and fixing up themselves so the photogs can get the best look. Im sorry Im one of those people that are uncomfortable putting on makeup in restaurant tables indoors and outdoors or even in the car.

Kimberly on

I love that she can mix it up and make it look beautiful. Give her a break! As women we are supposed to build up one another, not tear each other down. What happened to girl power? You go Katie!

Eli on

I love that bag!!!

Jamie C. on

Like other people said. It was a sad day when 68 dollars became cheap for a COTTON shirt. I would NEVER pay that much one. Oh, I forgot. It cost that much because it’s from “GAP”. LOL. Uh, people who think that make me sick!

Violet on

I follow most of what Katie has and I make no bones about it.

Jean on

I love Katie Holmes’s style. She always looks so down to earth and pretty whatever she is wearing and she always has minimal makeup and her face looks fresh and flawless.

Brittany on

lol.. like $68 is so cheap for a shirt

quema on

I have a girl crush on Katie Holmes!

Kaitlyn C. on

I love Katie Holmes, she’s so pretty.

I love the shirt and how she paired it nicely with a pencil skirt..and those shoes are just my style, but not in my price range, LOL. This whole outfit is just my style, I love it.

I’m glad she’s starting her movie career back up.

doc on

I will always be on the lookout on Katie’s fashion along with her career and personal journey. I believe Katie deserves to be on the Most Beautiful lists by People and even belong on the lists of Beautiful stars with no makeup.

An actual test of one’s beauty is watching women with no speck of makeup and Katie Holmes is bless by this.
