Katie Holmes in Holmes & Yang on Good Morning America

Posted on October 09, 2013

Looks like somebody’s feeling ever so pleased with herself at the moment.



Katie Holmes at ABC Studios in New York City for an appearance on “Good Morning America” in Holmes & Yang.

We don’t blame her. This look is adorable. The sass is off the chain. Can’t decide if we love the hose or the jacket more.

    Awwww the tights are so cute!

    • H2olovngrl

      Her legs look AMAZING in them! Also, I forgot how adorable she is when she really really smiles!

    • Mary229

      I have these tights at home and now I can’t wait to wear them! But I need to remember to bring Katie’s JOY and sass with me bc she looks AMAZING here.

  • RussellH88

    Those are some Fosse tights.

    • Karen Belgrad

      I seriously had All That Jazz in my head as I scrolled through the photos!

  • Sobaika

    Yes! I am here for fun tights.

  • Cubana Loca

    Super cute. Love the hose and the jacket. The jacket sleeves are WAY too long though.

  • marlie

    I *need* that jacket. NEED. And I love the rest of the look. Also, her hair looks AH-MAZING.

  • kirkyo

    Anyone else starting to see a younger Elizabeth McGovern?

    • Karen Belgrad

      Are you referring to 1980 Elizabeth McGovern (aged 19, Ordinary People)? Katie’s 34 and I swear is aging in reverse!

  • gabbilevy

    Cute. Maybe a little too youthful for her (god, that’s weird, but she’s a mom and a divorcee now), but mostly, Taylor Swift, take note. This is how you do shorts and hose/tights.

  • jen

    I don’t know. She looks like she’s on her way to tap class to me. I just can’t get behind this look on someone her age.

    • Heather

      I agree. She just needs a bowler hat to complete the look.

    • 3boysful

      Is she wearing a micro-mini or shorts?

      • jen


    • conniemd

      But she LOOKS young enough to wear this in the pictures. She looks young and carefree with the weight of the world off her shoulders finally.

  • Garcia Loca

    If I had legs like these, I’d be smirking too!

    • Rhonda Shore

      Her legs are quite remarkable.

  • msdamselfly

    Top half great. Bottom half ridiculous for her age

  • The hose.

  • murt

    She is so cute and her hair is gorgeous! And she is 35 years old but whatever – she looks way younger anyway, if we can even define what it means to look 35 nowadays.

  • hughman

    Roxie Hart, Private Dick, is on the case.

  • tereliz

    So mid-30s is too old for tights with hearts on them? *stuffs heart tights into back of drawer*

    • marlie


    • murt

      No way – 85 is not too old for tights with hearts on them!!

    • Sarah

      Well, my 37 y/o ass just went through my SIXTY THREE pairs of knee socks last night to make sure I had ’em all matched up right, because this is their time of year to shine. And make my lower legs look cute. So I wouldn’t worry about no heart-tights.

      • d4divine

        Knee socks and tights are to completely different things. A 30+year old woman should not be wearing tights with hearts on them…I don’t care how great her legs look.

        • Sarah

          Gotta disagree with you on that one. She doesn’t look bad, she doesn’t look desperate, and she doesn’t look like a child. She looks like a stylish young woman, which is exactly what she is. Fashion “rules” are lame.

          • demidaemon

            As long as everything fits properly and it’s not too whackadoodle, I have no problem with what anyone wants to wear.

            However, I do reserve the right to silently–and sometimes not so silently–judge their outfits. 😉

        • MasterandServant

          Nah, I love them. I work for a company that deals in fashion in NY and am around good and bad trends all the time (my morning elevater ride to my office is like a freaking fashion show). So many people have been wearing spiffy tights like this as of late with the weather change (and I love them!). Doesn’t matter if you are 20 or 50.

        • d4divine

          I don’t care what anybody says…hearts on the legs of a grown arse woman look silly.

          • fursa_saida

            Fine, but you have to then be prepared for the possibility that some don’t care that you think so.

          • d4divine

            Was that really necessary. What is up with folks that can’t keep a frivolous discussion about fashion civil. My goodness 🙂

          • fursa_saida

            I was simply saying that you are welcome not to care about others’ disagreement (“I don’t care what anyone says”), but that by the same token they don’t have to take your opinion to heart. I don’t think it’s particularly kind to tell people that they shouldn’t wear what they want, especially to do so repeatedly when they’ve said they themselves like and wear them. That’s all.

    • Cathy S

      No way. Wear the tights.

  • mrspotts66

    there’s a light in her eyes that hasn’t been there for a long, long time.

  • Y’all, I don’t mean to be crass (HA!) but I do believe this gal just might be getting laid. She has the glow of a woman getting her world, good and properly rocked. Either that or there is a fabulous new mood enhancer out on the market and we all need to find it.

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      Well, now that she’s broken free of Tommy Boy she can actually TAKE a mood enhancer.

      • and get good and laid.


        • hughman

          We heard you, you saucy minx you.

    • decormaven

      “Oh, l’amour, l’amour, how it can let you down. Hmm. How it can pick you up again.”

      • hughman

        On the train to Reno…

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          All she needs is that manicure from Olga in “Jungle Red” and she’s all set!

        • decormaven

          Get me a bromide- and put some gin in it!

          • formerlyAnon

            What a great line. So great you forget to wince at what that would probably taste like. (What a great movie.)

      • SylviaFowler

        You remember the awful things they said about what’shername before she jumped out the window? There. You see? I can’t even remember her name so who cares?

        • decormaven


  • DTLAFamilies

    Super cute but maybe boots instead of pumps?

    • tereliz

      I think the pointy-toed pumps are what makes it bad-ass. Punk ankle boots would kill the fab legginess she’s got going, and tall boots would look too military-inspired with that jacket.

      • DTLAFamilies

        Pumps and shorts will never not read cigarette girl to me. Ah well, that’s why everyone isn’t dressed exactly alike.

        • HomeOfficeGirl

          The pumps just look sort of blah… like there was an opportunity for more fun shoes here too – but I agree with Trerliz that booties stumpify. Maybe one of those thicker heels we’ve been seeing??

      • martha

        I think the shoes Amanda Peet is wearing would work great with this outfit.

    • SugarSnap108

      I agree. Slap some boots on this, and I’d LOVE.

  • Trisha26

    I’m not getting adorable I’m getting cheap. The jacket is cute. But she’s wearing hose with shorts & high heels – yikes!

    • Imasewsure

      I think it’s the combo that saves it from being cheap and/or frumpy. I like it all (and I usually hate what she wears!)

      • wontons

        The happy face and carriage don’t hurt either.

  • SylviaFowler

    Katie has had lots of cute looks recently in candid pap shots. It’s nice to see.

  • Bexxx

    I’m shocked people think this is too young. No leg-bearing after 25! How very dare she?

    (she looks the best she has in basically ever.)

    • halleygee

      I agree, she hasn’t looked this good in a very long time. I don’t know if it’s the clothes or the sass, but they’re both working for her.

  • Kent Roby

    Both she and Elizabeth Smart are making the rounds celebrating their freedom, and it shows.

  • Belvane

    Like Scarlett Johansson recently, I predict that’s an “I’m in love” glow. Watch for an announcement.

  • teensmom99

    Someone who checked with the weatherman before she left the house! Remarkable for a celebrity.

  • Barb Rayhttp://www.google.com/

    I love seeing her wearing something other than god-awful booties. I had begun thinking she hated her ankles, the way she was always covering them up. Brava dear!

  • Where does the button keep disappearing to?!

  • Emily Smith

    OMG the tights are doing amazing things for her legs too. She’s got great legs but the tights really do something for them I think.

  • anotherkate

    She looks cute, chic, and HAPPY! I love seeing her all lit up like this.

  • MilaXX

    The tights!

  • Calinda_L

    I kind of wish Zooey Deschanel would take note of this. Zooey’s personal style verges on the costume-y because it’s all a little too on the nose. The cutesy-pie tights and shorts are right in Zooey’s wheelhouse, but whereas Katie roughed them up a bit with the jacket and classed them up a bit with the pumps (and sexed them up with faaaaa-aah-ahh-bulous hair), Zooey would cutesy them up with a twee dress and round-toe pumps.

  • Guys, this is the first time I’ve seen Katie Holmes in YEARS (or so it feels). So adorable and the tights are to die for!

  • mjude

    I love the jacket. she really looks so happy. good for her

  • Marie

    This is SO Joey Potter!! But cute of course..

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Miley Cyrus take note: this is how you wear shorts that are sexy and still cover your naughty bits.

  • Little_Olive

    Love. Not sure that the coat really belongs with such a dressy bottom but she looks so good.

  • crash1212

    SO cute! WERQs for me.

  • quiltrx

    I really don’t care for her, but I have to say that this look is completely cute!

  • procrastinatrice

    Forget the clothes, I can’t get over how young she looks and that wonderful head of hair.

  • boweryboy

    The jacket seems like an after thought, but the rest is killah!

  • ashtangajunkie

    I’m not too old for heart tights?! AWESOME. Today is good.

  • God I want Cathy Cambridge to step out in something like this.

    • mlle

      She is wearing hose, as is royally required!

  • Tatiana Luján

    I think this is the prettiest Ive seen her look.

  • Rick Aiello

    She looks fantastic. Happy, relaxed, comfortable, and free from oppression. 🙂 Atta girl!

  • stubbornthoughts

    Want everything.

  • Adrianna Grężak

    She looks great! This is what confidence looks like

  • randeekay

    Am I the only one who doesn’t like the shoes?

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    The sleeves are way too long, and the skirt is way too short. But she’s got killer legs!

    • tereliz

      Thought it was a skirt at first, but it is shorts. Or, “a short” as the fashion world would prefer you to refer to them. :p

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        Ohhh! You know, I never noticed that till you said it. I went back and looked, and you’re correct – they are shorts, which makes the length of them fine. The sleeves are still too long, though!

  • sagecreek

    I can’t help it, I still love seeing her look so happy. Life out of captivity suits her.

  • merciblahblah

    Thank God she is not Robot Katie anymore. I love seeing that she has an actual PERSONALITY. Go on, gurrrrlll.

  • bessann28

    Huh, I guess I’m in the minority, but I think this outfit is ridiculous.

  • d4divine

    I’m missing something…the jacket is cute, the rest is just bad. Imo

  • Fuchaforever

    No no no! OUT. Looks like she is confused…teen tights from American Apparel/Hot Topic/Urban Outfitters with that coat and stilettos…wtf? I love mishmashes and little heart hose but this is NOT GOOD. Katie call a stylist pronto! For the love of God, don’t leave your house without consulting one first.

  • Ann VerWiebe

    I own those hose. They don’t look the same on me…

  • YoungSally

    She seems like she had a little giggle juice this morning.

  • lobsterlen

    Katie looks great here and young. She hasn’t looked youthful in long time.

  • MichelleRafter

    Katie Holmes has been around for so long and was married to that much older man (what was his name again?) that it’s easy to forget she’s only 34 and can still get away with looking adorable. And this is adorable. I want that jacket.

  • jilly_d

    Her legs are looking delicious lately. Sass, indeed.

  • cocohall

    She looks so spunky and happy that I want to like this, but my first thought when I saw it was “dear God, she is pulling a Miley and has forgotten her skirt.” And heart hose with heels? I’m at a loss to know where that look works except tap class. The top half is cute. Yet attitude is so important and she has rarely projected more joy, and for that, big snaps up!

  • ItsDicey

    Wow. Shockingly cute as hell. She looks GOOD.

  • Sophia Finfer

    So cute. I think even Suri would approve.

  • I don’t care why she’s smiling, it’s just nice to see her looking happy again.

  • Sara Brams-Miller

    She looks amazing.

  • Contralto

    Cute as a bug, that one. I need that coat.

  • Diego!

    She looks gorgeous, fresh and happy! Good for her! 🙂

  • Nice to see her smile like she’s happy

  • theblondette

    Gosh, amazed by all the “too old” comments. It’s not like her butt’s hanging out or she’s wearing a crop top! This is a sassy look, and while it’s fun I think it’s actually pretty classy – the shorts are tailored and the tights, while cute, are fairly smart. Besides, she has years of youth to catch up on post-Cruise 😉

  • Hmmmm…has an air of “off to my callback with the Rockettes” doesn’t it?

  • formerlyAnon

    Adorable. Jacket wins out over hosiery, here.

  • Lilyana_F

    I don’t remember seeing her look that good, seriously. Who knew.

  • littlemac8

    OK, she says grumpily, since when are those “tights?” In my neighborhood those are patterned hose and do not go with short shorts! Tights are opaque and are acceptable leg wear for the 35 and older set. Patterned hose with hearts on them are not! SNORT!

  • jacket could be kinda ordinary, it’s the shorts, patterned hose, and pumps that make it sassy. good to see an honest smile on her face.

  • guest2visits

    Really a good look – and a fun, not so serious outfit for Katie.

  • ballerinawithagun

    Love the stockings!

  • SweetJess MeanGreen

    One of her better looks in a very long time but I think if the hose were zigzag instead of hearts it wouldn’t look so tweeny.
