    I might’ve shrieked at the Katie Holmes pictures. Granny panties, sheer skirt (in this weather!), AND frosty lipstick? #nah

    • kimmeister

      I said “What the heck?” out loud right here in my cubicle.

    • MilaXX

      and frizzy hair.

    • ChiliP

      The man behind her is summing up my feelings exactly- obvious judgement capped with a suspicious side eye at those pants.

    • Kate4queen

      I just breathed ‘awful….’ in an awed tone.

    • TAGinMO

      And still, the smirk remains.

    • Rhonda Shore

      And that terrible posture! Stand up straight girl!!!

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      Uncool to look like that at Fashion Week, Katie. UN-COOL.

  • unbornfawn

    Hugh & Deb – So cute! Those gals look like they are dressed for a night on the town. Oh Katie, that’s not your look.

    • kimmeister

      Deborra-Lee’s shoes are heinous, though.

      • Cathy S

        Yeah, what’s with her shoes. I was all, they’re so cute, and then, what the heck are those?

        • SierraDelta

          I mentally photoshopped my head onto her body. And then I gave me much better shoes.

        • joything

          I have a feeling she’s short, and wanted to be taller for the photogs.

          • AudreysMom

            and yet, there’s a far better way.

      • unbornfawn

        Didn’t notice the shoes the first time around. Those are hideous.

  • Rita Oro’s lips always look amazing.

  • @Biting Panda

    The Jackmans are adorable.
    Rita looks better than expected.
    Chrissy’s proportions are off and she needs a belt.
    Katie is falling over, why? Also, no matter how Sandy she tries to get, she’s always going to be a Sandra Dee.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      Look at me! I’m Sandra Dee! Lousy with vir-gin-it-y!

  • Diego!

    OMG Katie!!! You rock that skirt, gurrrrll! Rita looks amazing! Hugh and Debora: cute! I don’t care about the other one.

  • vitaminC

    1. He looks like he’s ready to explode out of that suit; she has mom hair.
    2. This one looks like Donatella is her spirit animal. This is not a compliment.
    3. Might as well face it, you’re addicted to fug.
    4. A mirror should wipe the smirk off her face right quick.

    • Imasewsure

      “Might as well face it, you’re addicted to fug”… perfect line! Now I will be singing it all day but that’s ok

  • formerlyAnon

    Rita Oro nailed sexy, IMO. And it’s not so much what’s on display, but how soft and undressable the part that’s covered looks. (I, personally, think she could have done it without quite so much sternum, but that’s just me.)

    You see a lot of women trying for sexy, and all they look is exposed and/or packed into their shiny sausage casings.

    I know Ms. Furman is not tall, but her platform shoes are ugly. And I tend to like platforms. Her head is good, though. And the naive child of parents-who-made-it-work that’s buried at my core, really wants to believe that Mr. Jackman is in part able to be so publicly affable because (whatever their deal is) they’re happy at home.

    • They are the hideous platform boats from the DKNY show, aren’t they?

      • formerlyAnon

        I can’t tell for sure. But if not, they’re not far removed.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      They look like orthopedic shoes with built up soles, KWIM? But one does not usually see them worn as a pair.

    • Coleen

      And she always wears those type of Frankenshoes! I just don’t get it. If you want to be comfortable, there are loafers and oxfords and kitten heels. It’s just ghastly, especially when she is so adorable.

  • aahlife

    Repeating this question in variance in another post – Practically speaking, how does this work? As it is incredibly cold in NYC, they appear to be outside and many are wearing not the warmest clothes. Do they all have drivers that drops them at the door, and they freeze for fashion? No gloves, exposed chests, bare legs with strappy heels, etc. Wondering as I am going to NYC tomorrow. As I am a Californian I just have no experience. I am considering bringing a full length down coat, not fashionable at all, it is more suited for the mountain snow, but will I look inappropriate going to the theatre, etc?

    • vitaminC

      I’ve lived in Chicago for 10+ years now, and I’ve never worn a down coat. I find them too hot. A wool or cashmere coat with a warm sweater underneath works, although I am usually warmer than average. Also, you don’t want to start sweating under that thing–it’s the most disgusting feeling ever.

      Keep in mind–you will, and should, be cold when it’s cold out. If you’re toasty in subzero temps, you’ll be melting when you step into a cab, train, or lobby.

      • kimmeister

        I heard that the temps in the NJ Transit were reaching something like 120 degrees the day of the Superbowl, people passing out right and left. It’s insane how hot it gets in mass transit.

      • MilaXX

        I think it’d be a culture shock for a native Californian. They aren’t used to winters and this year has been insane.

      • Jacob Bowen

        See, I was born and still 45 minutes north of the city and I ALWAYS wear a down coat, but I guess it is always about personal preferences. This morning was AWFULLY cold!

        • aahlife

          These various opinions I find very helpful. I just don’t want to look like an idiot in NYC. There will be a sizable snowstorm the day I get there. I get cold so easily- I am a latina and thrive in hot weather. When others hate NYC in the summer, though I do not like the humidity, I do fine.

          • Jacob Bowen

            I LOVE NYC year round! Honestly you will NEVER look stupid if you are warm. When you are warm you get to laugh at all the stupid people (namely middle schoolers/high schoolers) in clothing that is inappropriate for the weather.

          • I’ve never been to NYC, but when I moved to London I found that the best thing was layers that you can take off. I initially interpreted “layers” as thermal underwear and roasted. A few thin layers of cotton and wool, with a big coat AND a handbag big enough to put the discarded layers of clothing in is the way I cope with changing temperatures.

      • marlie

        I think it depends on the person. I don’t usually wear a down coat when I’m driving to/from work because I get too hot in the car. But if I’m going to be waiting for the bus, or walking more than a couple of blocks, I’ll bust out the comforter with sleeves.

    • kimmeister

      It was answered in your other post. 🙂

    • MilaXX

      Not at all. The regular people will be dressed for the weather. It’s the celebs who dress for the paparazzi.

    • alyce1213

      Bring the down coat, it’s cold, you don’t want to walk around freezing — it’s New York, you’ll want to walk around.

    • ChiliP

      Wear the full length down coat. I moved to Chicgao from Texas last year and have been living in my down coat since November, and I’m still freezing. There are always a few people who try to tough it out with cute wool coats and flats, but for the most part everyone here has looked like a stuffed marshmallow for months now.

    • Tatiana Luján

      I’m from Colombia, tropical weather, and I’ve been in NYC in February and it isn’t soooo cold. A good wool coat will do.

  • Trent

    1. Hugh Jackman busting out of his suit is just YUM. They are such a wonderful couple. Sigh.

    2. I have NEVER understood why Chrissy Teigen is considered a “supermodel,” and this ill-fitting jumpsuit isn’t making it any clearer.

    • Imasewsure

      These days I think you become a Supermodel once you date a celebrity. She hardly qualifies otherwise…

      • Jessica Freeman

        I think she made the cover of Sports Illustrated…? She’s not just John Legend’s Wife.

  • MilaXX

    Was it an all black dress code? Rita looks one deep breath away from a wardrobe malfunction, Katie needs a little bit of leave in conditioner & I’m not loving Debra-Lee’s shoes at all.

  • Danielle

    Actual Disney Prince Hugh Jackman wins by default.

  • Suzanne Moore

    Was there a directive before-hand that everyone should wear black?

  • Snailstsichr

    Love the red lining in Katie’s jacket. I think Rita needs to re-think her hair conditioning strategy; it isn’t working.

  • Chrissy Teigan has actually frozen solid, hasn’t she? Someone needs to get her into a warm shower before bits break off.

  • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

    Is Katie Holmes 9 feet tall?

  • Imasewsure

    This looks like Donna Karan’s Tacky and/or Flowy Funeral Party…

  • KinoEye

    1. What the hell are those things on Deborra’s feet?
    2. “Would you like to try one of our evening specials? I’d recommend the breast.”
    3. Dominatrix on top, retiree on the bottom.
    4. The purple-shirted gentleman’s expression says it all. Like me, he’s probably wondering when the gypsy witch will begin the NYFW seance. He needs to speak with Christian Dior about the disturbing direction in which his fashion house moves, as well as that hack Raf Simons.

  • another_laura

    What the heck is Katie Holmes wearing? I do not understand.

    • 3boysful

      I am assuming another fairy-tale movie is coming out and she is playing the evil queen/witch?

  • Bradio311

    Top to bottom: 1) Hot. 2) blah… and are those “Shape-Ups?”. 3) tacky. 4) TACKY bad looking Gaultier. 4) interesting but not really in her style wheelhouse.

  • ralish

    Am I the only one who thought that Deborra was holding a little black cat by the scruff?

    • alyce1213

      Yes, I see an eye and a leg. It looks like my little black cat.

  • webslice33

    nice of hugh to bring along his mother..haha

  • marlie

    All of the ladystars (except for Deborra_Lee Furness) are dressed like it’s spring or fall. THAT much exposed skin (clavicle, shoulders, legs), in freezing-ass weather? I don’t care if they’re just going from the car to the door; the look silly.

    -Other than being fully covered up, I have no idea WTF Deborra-Lee is wearing. Everything makes me sad.
    -Rita Ora looks trashy. I generally “get” the vibe that she’s going for, but this time it’s not doing it for me.
    -Chrissy Teigen looks cute, and would look even cuter with the coat ON.
    -Katie needs to stand up straight, stop smirking, and wear a skirt with a lining.

    Man, I’m cranky today.

    • marlie

      Oh – and Hugh looks pretty fantastic.

    • Anna

      Pretty much sums it up for me, although I’ll add that Rita and Chrissy look hypothermic. I don’t know why Katie looks so pleased to be vacuum-packed into that top, skirt looks like sheer curtains to me.

    • formerlyAnon

      I think Ms. Furness is going through a period of carrying more weight than she had been – which, with the fact that she’s moved into her late 50s and has to do a fair number of public appearances in rooms full of actresses, seems to have brought on a period in which her version of “never try compete with the 20 year olds’ bodies” has become “layer on the shapelessness so no one knows for sure how bad it’s gotten.” I hope it’s temporary.

  • Tracy_Flick

    The bodice of that jumpsuit on Chrissy Teigen looks like a car bra from an ’89 Firebird. And it needs to be hiked up a couple inches. However, her head looks great and I can’t argue with that grin.

    • Jacob Bowen

      Totally agree! I think it would look SO much better had it been brought up like 3 inches.

  • Jessica Freeman

    That’s just a whole lot of Blah. Katie is my worst offender here, followed closely by Deb’s shoes.

    • 3boysful

      What is Deb wearing on her feet?

      • Jessica Freeman

        Something unflattering that should be burned but she doesn’t care because she married Hugh Fucking Jackman.

        • 3boysful

          I love him all the more because he married a woman who is attractive but looks real. (She might want to rethink the footwear, however.)

          • marlie

            And he’s married to the same person he married before he became an international heartthrob. (Did I just type “heartthrob”? Twice?)

          • formerlyAnon

            And THAT is the real hurdle, usually. Though my pessimistic side thinks “Their youngest is only 8 or 9. It’s very likely All Fallen Apart, but they’re putting a good face on it till the youngest gets older or one of the grown ups is ready to move on to a new partner.” But my inner optimist says “noooooo!”

          • I am on the side of your inner optimist. The way they lean together looks like a properly happy couple, not just a photo opp.

          • marlie

            So apparently, they haven’t hit the 20-year mark, but even still, they have a lot more longevity than a lot of Hollywood marriages. Who knows what’ll happen in the future, but they’ve already made it a lot longer than some of his contemporaries.

          • in a pickle

            He got Punked a while ago. They made him think he’d basically blown up a friend’s house (not cool). He called the fire dept and then his wife. I think they’re good 🙂

          • formerlyAnon

            Well that makes my optimistic side happier than really makes sense. (Of course, reading & posting about celebrities and/or entertainers makes exactly how much sense? Yet I do.) It sounds like they have at minimum a solid working partnership and are friends, which isn’t always enough to keep a marriage together but it’s enough that a lot of married people would be envious.

            (I would not have a sense of humor about it if someone “punked” me in that manner. Not. At. All.)

          • in a pickle

            I agree on all points. I don’t watch the show either, but saw a bit of that clip as I like him a lot. (I just rewatched it- don’t watch it, it’s too cruel. Jackman comes off aces, but it’s not fun to watch someone think they’ve had something to do with several houses getting burned up.)

  • Jacob Bowen

    Katie looks SO try hard. Rita looks like her neckline ripped a few inches lower than it was originally was, and Hugh Jackman…..mmmmmmmmmm. His wife better hold on REALLY TIGHT, because I am coming to steal him.

    • demidaemon

      You’ll have a lot of competition there…myself included!

  • NMMagpie

    Nothing sexier than a man who is happy in his life.

  • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

    Wait, is it still winter on the Northern Hemisphere?

  • demidaemon

    That’s a lot of boobies on display. Even Katie’s getting in on it, what with the nipples. Hugh is awesomely handsome as usual, damn it.

  • TigerLaverada

    Hugh Jackman. Yes.

    Man, that’s some bad extension work on Rita Ora’s head. I’m not sure who she is, but she looks rode hard and put away wet.

    • formerlyAnon

      British pop singer who likes clothes. (Often clothes that border on costume, but nonetheless . . .)

  • Daktari100

    Hugh is busting out of that jacket, in a very good way.

  • So many naked decolletage and arms! It’s winter in NYC. How do fashionistias deal? I’d be wrapped in a fake fur and flash some shoe.

  • crash1212

    Is that first lady kidding with those shoes? With hose? Please.

  • Sam Smith

    Everybody is in black and I thought Katie retired that smirk when she retired from being Mrs. Cruise. Said another way, not much I like here.

  • quiltrx

    Was black required?
    And Rita, put that shit away.

  • Renaissance_Man_ATL

    Unlike many of the other comments here, I think Katie Holmes looks fantastic, one of her best ever looks, she should channel this is for her daily personal style. I do wish she was standing up straight, though.
