Tim Gunn is never shy about his opinions on Project Runwaycalling a dress a “pterodactyl out of a gay Jurassic Park” isn’t exactly holding back. And when PEOPLE talked to the debonair fashion expert at the Tide and Downy Total Care Launch Party, he expressed his disapproval of Katie Holmes‘s recent penchant for fall’s new baggy jeans. “I have to say, Katie Holmes has become so much more sophisticated in so many ways, but I think she’s in a dip right now. I can’t explain it.” Gunn actually sees the adaptation of the new look as a move back towards her younger look, saying “She ascended from this tomboyish waif look to an incredible sexy sophisticate. We realize how much style she’s capable of. I don’t get it.” But for those of us who are digging Katie’s baggy look (also spotted on Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston), Gunn does give us hope. “With the right shape, it can work very well.” — Jessica Gold Haralson

Can’t the woman wear what she wants when she’s out and about? Just because she’s famous, doesn’t mean she needs to be “on” all the time. Does this guy always dress up when he goes out? GET A LIFE DUDE!

If the jeans are Tom’s-no wonder she has to roll them! They would be too short on her otherwise! It still looks terrible regardless.

Kaby on

She looks like an idiot to me!!!! And anyone can change their look with a stylist!

Spencer on

Katie would look good in anything…and nothing! (grin)
I kinda like the jeans on her.

Shannon on

yes, shes allowed to dress down and be casual and comfy, however looking like a slob is another story. No one is saying she has to wear designer jeans, but lets try jeans that fit?!

Jan on

Leave the girl alone!! Why is it that a person cannot wear comfortable clothing without being ridiculed by the media?!

Heather on

Brings a whole new meaning to the term “Getting in someone’s pants” if those are Tom’s jeans….

Mary on

Wait, what about the tight-rolling? Please tell me she’s not trying to bring that one back. Baggy I can deal with, but not that WITH tight-rolled jeans. Maybe SJP could pull that off, but not Katie.

Diane on

What cracks me up is that she says they are Tom’s jeans. I call B.S. on that! Have you seen them side by side? There is no way she is wearing his jeans and then rolling them up…his jeans are way too short for that. Give me a break. Another sham in the Cruise family.

Oy Vey! such a cute girl ,in just the most unfashionable jeans I’ve ever seen, unless you are repainting your house!
