It’s been a year of ups and downs for Katie Holmes, but she’s going out on a high note. Her effortlessly chic outfit earned top honors this week, making her the final best dressed star of 2012.

The stellar look consisted of a fuchsia Narciso Rodriguez dress and champagne bow-accented heels, topped off with an unexpected olive-green military-inspired trench worn to The Late Show with David Letterman in N.Y.C. The winning ensemble was a bright departure for the star, who tends to opt for more subdued colors. And the risk paid off because more than 6,000 readers gave it their style seal of approval.


In a close second is Jessica Chastain (who had the number-one spot last week) in a leopard-print mini and a black coat, plus tights and lace-up boots, which she slipped into after her Broadway show in N.Y.C.

She is not the best dressed, trust me, others deserve the award.

I am going to have to respectfully disagree.

They aren’t saying she is the best dressed for the YEAR. They are saying she is the last best dressed celeb of the week for 2012.

Who is Katie Holmes? Oh yeah she’s famous because of Tom Cruise. I know her.

Pat on

I do not agree. She looks like a slob in this photo,, like usual. She needs some lessons in good posture, and what’s with the beer gut and sagging boobs??

What about our First Lady. Now that is a woman that knows how to put herself together! She should have been picked as No. 1!!!!!Let’s represent out own country – forget about Kate! Our own royalty – the first family – whether you like African American people or not – you got to give it to them. Yes, I am an African American and want to say, it has been long overdue. And he was not picked to be President because of the color of his skin but because he is the best at being the President. Everything is not fixed – but give him a break – it took long years to get it to this point and it will take long years to fix it!
