Katie Holmes might be busy filming The Kennedys, but the stylish star briefly set aside her Jackie O persona on Monday night to attend the N.Y.C. premiere of The Extra Man, where she showed off a new, modern-day curly shag with side-swept bangs. Never one to shy from taking beauty risks–from her trendsetting banged bob to her much-buzzed-about pixie cut–Katie always manages to bring something new to both the red carpet and the streets of N.Y.C. And while her new corkscrews prove that something as subtle as a curling iron can put a little kick in your step, we’re not sure if we prefer Katie’s beautiful brunette locks curly or straight. Tell us: What do you think of Katie’s new look? Vote now!–Jessie Goldberg

I think she looks beutiful no matter how she wears her hair. However, I tend to like her straight hair better. I think she’s just as beautiful inside as she is outside and I think Tom is gorgeous too! They make a great couple and because of that, people are jealous and hope to see them fail. I hope Tom and Katie are stonger than that and it never happens! Blessings to both of them!!

I think Katie is a beautiful lady, and I wonder why she gets so much flack. For some reason, when she and Tom got together, people started getting so catty.
All you women out their hating on Tom, I want to know what you’d do if this famous movie star wanted to be with you?! You’d jump all over that idea no doubt, and don’t tell me you wouldn’t.
Tom got excited when they got together, and ever since then people are quick to call him crazy. Chill out, he’s happy – and I’m sure she is too.

…back to the hair. Not a huge fan of this hair do, but it isn’t horrible. Could have used a little taming.

There is an article right now that raves about Katy’s kind, sweet personality on her latest movie. I have never heard anyone WHO KNOWS HER say anything less than she is loveliness personified. That is not a ‘smirk’ on her face; like most people on the planet, one side of your mouth pulls to one side. Rarely will you see a person whose eyes or mouth is perfectly the same on both sides, because one half of your face shows the pain you have experienced in life, the other the happiness. Don’t believe me? Cover half the face of a person and you will see the difference. Check out the ‘pull’ on Harrison Ford’s mouth, for example. Also, you will not detect it on young people as they haven’t yet had enough life experience!

omg! is her stylist still alive? i mean look at that! it looks like she wants to imitate goldilocks but with a darker hair. I like Kate’s hair before.

I have to agree….

Looks like a bad wig or weave. The curls seem to weigh her hair down too much. She has a beautiful face and if she pulled the curls back a bit even in a nice clip or pony…it would look more attractive on her.

In my opinion, her hair is probably naturally curly. I also can’t stand that “smirk” on her face and her spoiled rotten child.

She’s starting to look more and more like Tom every day.

It looks too messy and not an intetional messy. I don’t know if it’s the picture or her hair.
