What Do You Think of Katie Holmes's Premiere Look?

Her performance received good reviews, but we’re not so sure people will be raving about the outfit Katie Holmes selected for the Dead Accounts premiere party.

For the Broadway play’s debut in N.Y.C. on Thursday evening, the star chose a busy feminine floral-print dress with black-and-white embellishment at the neckline, a black crochet-like panel at the waist and flared sleeves, plus a lemon clutch and Gio Diev strappy pumps.

We can’t say we strongly dislike any one part of the outfit (love the print, love the sexy touch at the waist, love the clutch, we could go on …), but all together, there’s just a lot going on with this ensemble … much like the plot of the play.

One aspect of her look we can’t critique: her Duchess of Cambridge-esque mane, a surprising — and welcome — departure from the way Holmes normally styles her hair (that would be stick-straight).

But we want to know what you think: Do you like Holmes’s outfit? What about her hair?

Her hair always looks lousy!!

whatever on

saw her walking alone through Chelsea Market in NYC on Wednesday and she looked exhausted. She was whispering into her cell while buying a box of chocolates – chick is tall and needs to take a nap but she’s skinnier than I thought

kiss my. .toe on

looks homely

her hair is hardly straight in any of the pictures you linked to “stick straight” hair……………….

Looks like crossbones across her chest with a pentagram necklace. Idk what she was aiming for with this but it strikes me as Laura Ingalls got attacked by a Thetan.

She looks like she’s Depression-era curtains.
Fire your stylist, or if you don’t have one, get one. You are a beautiful woman and this outfit does nothing good for you.

Seems like she took a lot better care of her appearance when she was with Tom.

Katie is beautiful any way,,,,,,whatever she wears looks fine with me….it’s the person inside what I see, her sweet personality and kindness and not the dress.How can she fell for that crazy man …..it’s impossible to comprehend.
