Katie Holmes in Azzedine Alaïa at the Gravity NYC Premiere
Ladystars! Why are you all making us say the things we don’t want to have to say?
Katie Holmes attends the premiere of “Gravity” in New York City in an Azzedine Alaïa dress paired with Michael Kors pumps.

Cute dress. Invisible shoes.
Now, look. Before we say anything, all y’all need to remember the Number One rule here: It’s not about you. It’s never about the average gal and her style needs here. So when we say that Katie really needed a bit more makeup and that generally, we’re not loving this micro-trend of clean faces on night-time red carpets, it does not mean that we think so-called “normal” women absolutely needs to wear makeup or wear more makeup. Okay?
Because really, that face is just too clean for the event. It’s a film premiere at night, she’s a star, she’s dressed up, she knew her picture would be taken. She just looks washed out in the pictures. You can’t really see her face all that well from a few feet away. It makes her look like she literally just woke up a few seconds ago. In terms of celeb public appearance looks, this is daytime makeup. It’s cute, but not quite serving the look or the venue.
