Calvin Klein Women’s Creative Director Francisco Costa and actress Katie Holmes seem to have quite the long-standing fashion crush—and nowhere was the mutual style admiration more evident than at the stunning Calvin Klein Collection spring show Thursday afternoon. “We met her before she was married,” said Costa. “She’s the perfect Calvin girl,” he added, explaining how his clothes look on her tall, modelesque figure. Holmes, who flew in from Toronto to join Julianne Moore, Kerry Washington and Isabel Lucas in the front row at the N.Y.C. show, told PEOPLE: “I just loved it. There were so many pieces I would love to have. He did an amazing job…I loved the simplicity. I loved the colors he’s chosen, the fabrics and his simple elegance.” Holmes, clad in a belted, cream-colored Calvin Klein dress, shared a quick hug and kiss after the show with Costa. The designer then turned his attention to the collection. “It was more about the body, the fabric, and obviously interesting cuts,” he said. “The new field for me is softness, and making that very sharp and crisp, which is much more difficult. It was challenging, fun, much more fluid, elongated. We started in resort with that mid-calf length…so it was a step forward.” So was Holmes, who co-designs her own line of clothes, inspired? “Very!” –Jeffrey Slonim

I have to agree about Katie Holmes looking like a giant! Her face, body, legs, and those knees are huge compared to the other. Julianne Moore is much older than Katie Holmes yet she looks average size as the others. Katie looks like an Amazon woman not a girl. I wonder how much shorter is her husband? Probably a lot shorter.

tink1217, I agree with your comment that she looks like a Stepford wife. I have thought that ever since she started dating him.

Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks
