Pairs Division: Holmes and Cruise

Posted on December 20, 2011

Well shut our mouths. Apparently Tom Cruise does own a suit.

Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise attend the premiere of “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” in NYC. Katie Holmes wears a Holmes & Yang dress.

But you know the little manly man was just dying to get back into his gigantic work boots and bomber jackets. Still, attention must be paid to his efforts.

HE: Is wearing a suit and that’s a huge step in the right direction since lately, he’s been treating the press events for this movie as something to fit in between trips to the Home Depot. It’s a very nice suit and it seems to be tailored quite well to fit him. Our only real quibbles are the two puddles of fabric at his feet and the bland tie. Also the Frankenstein shoes. We realize you need all the help you can get to get that extra inch or two of height, Tom, but she’s still towering over you. Might as well switch to shoes that look less… corrective. Score: 7.5/10.

SHE: Looks every inch the dutiful robot wife. That’s a lovely color on her; it’s kind of a shame that it matches his suit so closely, but not enough to detract points from the look. In fact, we’d go so far as to say the look is pretty close to perfect. We might have recommended some color on her feet, but that’s about the only suggestion we could make. The hair and makeup look pretty and the dress suits her to a T. But what thrills us most is the deployment of sheer hosiery. Young ladies are going to have to get over their squeamishness about the topic. Most actresses would have defaulted to black tights here, giving themselves piano legs in the process. Instead, Katie’s legs looks long, slim, and sexy. Don’t count out the sheer hose, ladies. It can be your friend in ways tights can’t. Score: 9/10. She looks good, but not, like, Oscar night good.

Combined Score: 8.25/10. Excellent job, strange little robot stars.
