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

She’s trying too hard to be Vicoria Beckham, on whom the baggy jeans looked great.

at first it didn’t look to attractive but i’m actually kind of liking it now. it’s different from the millions of skinny jeans (which are still cute too but EVERYONE is wearing them).


Give the girl a break! It must be tiresome not to be able to go out in jeans and a tee without some worthless fashion nazi making catty remarks about you. Just because you have money and are a celeb dosent mean you are not like everyone else. I think the jeans are cool!

There’s no way those are Tom’s jeans. He is much shorter than her, so why would she roll them up. Plus, way to baggy to be his. He is a really tiny guy.

It’s a time to dress-up and a time to relax. we can’t always walk around like we’re walking down the red carpet. It’s okay to let your hair down Katie being a mom, wife and actress is a busy lifestyle. So relax when you feel, you’re more human that way and not a dress-up doll.
