This Week's Best Dressed Star: Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes

The red carpet saw its fair share of sequins, metallics and lace, but all of that sparkle and sexiness was no match for Katie Holmes‘s basic LBD.

Her knee-length number earned more than 15,700 votes and nabbed the top spot on our best dressed list this week.

Holmes wore the winning creation — which features flutter sleeves and a V-neckline — with two-tone Gio Diev pumps (love!) to a Quentin Tarantino tribute at N.Y.C.’s MoMA on Monday.


Close behind Holmes in the number-two spot was Taylor Swift, who’s actually found herself in two of the top five spots on our weekly best dressed list.

Swift’s runner-up look (worn to N.Y.C.’s Ripple of Hope gala on Monday) consisted of a gold tulle embroidered Oscar de la Renta tea-length design, nude Jimmy Choo pumps and Lorraine Schwartz earrings. And if you’re as smitten as everyone else is with this festive ensemble, click here to get the look for less.

To check out Swift’s other ranking outfit (it’s totally different from her Oscar de la Renta dress), and to find out who else earned a place in the top 10, click here. Tell us: Whose outfit do you like better: Holmes’s LBD or Swift’s gold party dress?

It’s nice to see her back to looking like herself. She looks happy.

Katie will shine again…..after this rough time in her life…..her beauty and undeniable passion for life will reign again.

Al on

She always look messy and dirty!!!

Megan on

Does she look pretty? Yes, but it’s a simple, safe, and boring LBD.

Fashion is suppose to be fun, take risks, a showstopper! My choice would be Anne Hathaway’s Givenchy Haute Couture gown from the Les Miserables London premiere!

To Al and Gues T and Megan,
Why are you sooooo jealous of Katie???
