Katie Holmes is arguing for animal-pattern pants. I am open to hearing her arguments. The actor-producer attended the recent Michael Kors show in New York looking every inch the fashion professional…with one small exception. Holmes looked high-powered office chic in black turtleneck and blazer with her glossy, wavy hair. You can see her as Kate Middleton if you look closely.
The pants are a bit wilder. This groovy pattern looks somewhere between zebra-striped or marbled black-and white. If you look closely, then you will see that the garment has tiny sequins. The look is great, although I can’t imagine them being too comfortable.
Holmes was seated between Alan Cumming, whose book Holmes has praised on Insta, and Kate Hudson. Mindy Kaling, Anna Wintour, and Mindy Kaling were also nearby. Wintour was wearing a floor-length snakeskin jacket, and we can clearly see the fashion signals: Animal. Prints. Are. In.
Gotta say, this look is miles better than that blouse-dress-over-jeans thing that was happening a few months back. The look is definitely not for everyone. Dawson’s Creek Star has been a denim fashion icon for decades. But what happens when she switches to something more stylish? A month ago, she wore gold wide-leg pants that were shinier than anything we have ever seen. You know who “wears the pants” in Katie Holmes’s life? Katie does. Hopefully, she keeps doing so until NYC heats up, at which point we predict she’ll be back to “Sky’s out, thighs out.” Yep, she was on the no-pants trend months before these starlets, many of whom could learn a thing or two about elevated basics from her.
BRB! I have to get my cheetah print top out of my wardrobe.
