In or Out: Katie Holmes in Holmes & Yang

Posted on May 24, 2011

Well, that answers that. The world finally has an answer to the eternal question “What would Laura Ingalls wear to her prom?”

Katie Holmes attended the 56th annual Drama Desk awards at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City in Holmes & Yang.  H&Y is her vanity line, in collaboration with celebrity stylist Jeanne Yang.

Oh for God’s sake, enough with the damn smirking. Xenu is not amused. When the contract expires and she gets to walk away with steamer trunks full of money, the inevitable PR campaign to change her image should include getting diamond caps on all her teeth. Imagine the headlines the first time she flashes them to the paparazzi. Katie, call us in a couple of years. We’ll set it up.

Anyway, the dress. It’s pretty shitty, right? It’s like a bridesmaid’s dress for a polygamy cult wedding. Shiny, satiny pink for the sister-wife with a sense of glamour. And it’s got all this crap going on. Way too many elements, which is what happens when someone with no design training is in control of a clothing line. To us, this is a very clear OUT, but our precious unborn fawns have been known to surprise us with their unsanctioned opinions before. You make the call, bitches.

VOTE NOW!

IN! There’s nothing wrong with looking demure, you judgmental whores!

OUT! What the hell kind of cult is that? “Pussy Bows for Jesus?”

The Minion Opinion on Lucy Liu’s quicker picker-upper dress was OUT, although many rallied to her defense.

      Out. Out out out. The combination of shiny fabric and fundamentalist lines reminds me of the choir dresses the religious girls in high school made when we could get whatever kind of dress made that we wanted, but they had to be the same “eye catching” color and fabric.

      Okay. Okay, Soul Brothers T&Lo. That was cute. Really cute. I didn’t know you both had the mad Photoshopping skills to be able to cut and paste every outfit Mrs. Cruise ever put on into one, and make it look like she actually WORE THAT to an event.

      So now post the actual dress so the minions can vote on something real.

      But in all seriousness, I don’t think we should judge her until we see how the robe looks on the rest of the choir.

      The color looks nice on her but I kept trying to put my finger on what was wrong with it.  I decided that I did not have to decide that…instead I’d lokk for what was Right with it.  The color is what I came up with. 

      You know in the close-ups I could see her as a JFK- Jackie offspring.

      Out! I’m not sure if it’s too big or for some reason designed to be that way but this emphasis her slim shape making Katie appear frail and a little ill. Kind like she’s an after look in a weight watchers contest, wearing clothes from ‘before’.
      Would be interested to see the fit of this on someone a little bigger.

      The woman clearly has some sort of debilitating mental illness…

      Exhibit A – She married Tom Cruise.
      Exhibit B – She honestly believes anyone will pay 1200K for a basic pencil skirt because it bear her name, even though she is consistently on the worst dressed list.

      And Exhibit C – She left the house in this dress. 

      In fact, I think Exhibit C would be enough evidence even without A or B.

      It looks very awkward and random to me. It’s loose and ill-fitting in what appears to be a weird and off-balance way, with extra unfilled boob sacs under the armpits. And the way this thing lies on her hips is just tragic.

      I’m imagining Blanche Dubois in the nuthouse, and Blanche sneaking into somebody else’s room and prying open a cheap cardboard suitcase and finding a shiny satin nightdress and robe, all pleats and bows and a general mess. She sees this flimsy, vulgar lingerie and she knows it’s no good, but she can’t help herself, clutching it to her bosom. But by the time she’s toted it back to her room, she has a lucid moment and realizes that the thing is much too bright a white or something Blanche just can’t deal with at that moment of her life. It’s vulgar! It’s rude! She can’t abide rude or vulgar! And that sends her most sincerely around the bend (her bend being a quite fluid sort of place) so she throws it in the bathtub with some Rit #136 just to make it look different and better and, oh, dear heavens, the color comes out all wrong, shrieking MAGENTA! in a way she didn’t intend, when she just wanted a nice pretty pink, but Blanche’s nut being most sincerely in the off position, she rips the peignor set apart in a frenzy and makes curtains with big bows for tie-backs, so girly and sweet, thinking that at least the pleated MAGENTA! draperies will keep the harsh dawn out of her room when she’s feeling vulnerable, won’t they? But, no, it all just makes her sadder. And Blanche rips the curtains down again and tries to slap it all back on her body, fabric here or there, pleats and folds willy-nilly, a hip not where a hip should be, but she is covered and the MAGENTA! isn’t shrieking quite so loud now that it’s down from the window and swathed around her.

      And that’s what I think of that dress. Not just OUT, but completely around the bend.

      Out. Demure can be good, that’s not demure, it’s a 70’s nightgown…

      Ill fitting, sloppy, bad color, strange waistline.  What was she thinking?  But let’s be fair, she’s not smirking.  She just has an asymmetrical face and that’s how she smiles.  Victoria Beckham, Carey Mulligan, Michelle Williams – they all seem to have no teeth and smile in that same prissy way (although, OK, they are symmetrical) so why are we picking on her?

      I don’t think she smirks on purpose.  She just doesn’t like to do the big toothy smile.  It’s too bad,cuz when she does smile, she really lights up.  Anyway–the dress is abosolutely horrid.  OU to the T!

      Oh so OUT.  It’s not wrong because it’s too demure, it’s wrong because the top is 17 kinds of wonky and not just obscures but strangely alters her natural shape.  The skirt is just fine, had the top been fine.

      OUT like a light bulb. Ugly color, ugly fabric, pleats, pussy bow(s), belt, yicch.

      Out!  I don’t get it.  How is it supposed to fit anyway?  To me it looks like a midi blouse over a pleated skirt.  You are so right about the Laura Ingalls prom dress comment as this outfit reminds me of styles of over 100 years ago. Even then it would have been worn  by school girls not by a Gibson girl.  Maybe in person the color looks pretty but in the pictures it is more bad bridesmaid dress than haute couture.  So it’s “out, damned spot.  All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this…”

      Oh darlings, what you said.
      I can’t believe any of us are even paying attention to her. And the smirk. She actually thinks she looks good. Which if nothing else confirms her crazy.

        And darling, exactly what *you* said!

      Katy has a right to her little bitchy smirk: she has a great bod–this dress, however, makes her look dour and tubby and kinda dowdy. INSTA OUT.

      It’s definitely out, but there are things about it I like. On their own, the top half and the bottom half could both be fantastic–even if it were exactly the same and in different colors/materials it could be quite gorgeous. Sadly, out though.

      “A bridesmaid’s dress for a polygamy cult wedding”

      Maybe one of the funniest (to me) things ya’ll have ever come up with. And that’s saying a lot.

      I do contest the Laura Ingalls reference… Lawrence Welk, more like.

      Anyway, OUT.

      out.

      Looks like an exactly matching blouse and skirt, on which the blouse has been pulled halfway out of the waistband.  Not a good look.  I guess if she removed the bow, had the top half fitted, shortened the skirt a little, and went for a less garish color–you know, if she’d worn a different dress–it might be okay, sans smirk.  But this?  It’s OUTta there.

      I don’t mind the top part of the dress.  If she paired it with a blank knee length pencil skirt and a sleek up-do with a simple drop earring she might look pretty good.  I don’t understand her faces.  She looks drugged and hypnotized.

      OUT. She makes me cringe-laugh every time. I cringe in embarrasment for her  as any woman would for another who obviously thinks she looks great but big time doesn’t. Then I laugh when I remember who she thinks she is smirky wonderful and how ridiculous that is.

    • http://profiles.google.com/thisiscelia Celia

      Out. Why are all her self-designed clothes also look like they were self-sewn too? It’s painfully clear she has no idea about construction, fit or fabric, and I’m embarrassed for her that she hasn’t found someone to help her execute her ideas better. The fit is all wrong here, especially the waistline, and she has no idea how to do pleats.
