oy that purple eyeliner makes her look sickly.
and the nude lip ain’t helping.
right? consumption face.
My thoughts exactly! Yikes.
Also, she couldn’t comb her hair? That’s a “look” some stylist recommended? My hair looks just like that when I wake up in the morning, thankyouverymuch.
Oh, that is what that is. I had hesitated to say anything because I had actually wondered if she was unwell or unhappy in some way.
With that spacey smile and the zombie eyes — she looks like she spent her 4/20 here in Colorado.
maybe this reflect exactly how she feels about the hip pouches.
If this isn’t a walk of shame outfit, nothing is. Plus, her bra must’ve gone missing at some point.
I feel like a napkin joke is too obvious to make.
It looked good until her head.
Man, she did not give a shit today
Wow, those droopy shoulders and waist pouches are horrible. I’d say it was also hemmed badly but it looks the same on the model.
Those waist pouches seem to be For Models Only.
The model’s intense fierceness is the only thing (barely) saving the dress.
Pooch much? And how about a hairbrush? Did you comb it with an egg beater? sheesh.
I just assumed that Humanitarian Katie is nursing two baby kangaroos back to health in there. One must never allow one’s public appearances to interfere with one’s quest to make the world a better place!
the models stomach is totally flat, Katie”s pooches out a bit, with the wings it gives the illusion that she has a pouch that she is keeping things in instead of carrying a purse.
Very practical! No need for a clutch.
And yet, her waist looks ridiculously tiny. It gives her a little girl’s body.
Pool hair and hip flotation devices, do not a good look make.
Her outfit today clearly says, “Suffering from Zac Poison.”
Oh, it’s Zac Posen. I should really pay more attention to who the designer is. It all makes sense now, in the worst way possible.
NOOOOO! That is some hangover shopping hair. GNTYD, Katie. GNTYD.
Agreed, but whose dress it it? Even the model isn’t pulling it off. No excuse for the hair, though…
True! Dr. Pepper-colored satin is no one’s friend.
maybe someone like Tilda or Kate could pull this off in the extremely avant-garde styling.
Bobbi Brown is rethinking her contract.
Actually, she was already replaced by Kate Upton – maybe a month ago? Her makeup has looked terrible ever since.
Not a single fuck was given that day.
D, You WIN the Hemingway Internet Award!
It looks like her tits are sagging into those ugly pockets at her hip. And the color is a bit off for her skin tone.
I want her to accessorize those unfortunate pouches…maybe with daisies…or some long-stemmed roses.
That was my first thought too! So many possibilities. One could be the beer cozy, the other for a pack of smokes.
“Beer cozy” was one of my first thoughts upon seeing this dress. Probably not the intended reaction.
My first thought was paintbrushes! Looked like a good outfit to wear while painting.
Is it just me, or are the puppies not supported enough? This whole thing looks a wild mess- Get Yo’ Shit Together- GYST!
The boobs, the hair, the hem of the dress…. nothing is good. Katie should have stayed in bed. She looks like she wanted to. I actually feel pretty bad for her.
It’s a 5 Gs dress, for real.
That dress is wearing poor Katie.
Waaaaaaaaay too tight and she looks like a hot mess….
Not good on the model. Worse on KH.
Zomby makeup for the loss!
I had just been thinking that there are 2 Katie Holmes: Katie, the college student who doesn’t give a s*** about clothes and Kate (aka Cruise’s wife), the Stepford fashionista. She really was sort of a slob pre-marriage. This look is the Katie CS wearing a dress that the Kate SF might have worn–still too napkin-y but would have looked better with a sleek bob.
Why would you ever wear a dress that makes you look fat?
Definitely a FMO dress.
Don’t think I’ve ever seen her make the most of her assets, which are mainly in that lovely face. She could wear clothes well, but hardly ever does. She either has a massive case of “I don’t give a shit” or makes some very unfortunate choices in how she presents herself to her public. Such a waste.
And yet her casual clothes are usually cute and (fake) breezy…. she should just stay off the RC and stick to “girl on the street” shots
That is a ridiculous excuse for a dress. Added fabric on the hips, emphasizes the belly, makes non-saggy breasts look saggy. It doesn’t even look good on the model.
Said it before, will say it again…satin is the devil’s fabric…if Coco can barely pull it off the rest of us stand no chance…
It reminds me of the PR “sustainable fabric” challenge from several seasons ago. ALL of the dresses looked like this.
Yeah. Everything looked pretty bad in that challenge. It didn’t help that the models picked the fabric.
I’ve had customers ask me to make similar dresses. I’ve had to explain to them that they are not real life clothing. The model looks good on the runway but only in that position. Not real life.
How do the customers react to such guidance?
Did Adore Delano make this dress? Even on Coco Rocha it looks like it was put together with a glue gun.
Nope. Something this tricky has to be fitted meticulously or it will not work. This looks a mess with a poorly rolled hem and a mid section so tight it’s giving her a pouch with wings. I also hate the tousled hair with this dress.
Zac Posen actually went as her date and walked the red carpet with her. The dress was cut too tight at the knees for her to walk in without the dress riding up. LOL, Zac had to pull the hem down several times.
The Daily Mail had several shots of the dress. The seaming on the back made her butt look great. Still, it’s a standing and posing dress only. I really don’t know how she could sit through a 2 hour film in it.
That’s great PR for you right there, Zac. What an idjit.
Whoa. That hair is a mess, and her hem is still pinned up, apparently. Go back home, Missy, and don’t come out of your room until you are ready to play with the grownups.
Girl, that dress and your casual head were not meant to be in the same room together. And what is with that hem?? Is it supposed to look shoddily turned under?
She is tiny as can be but the dress makes her lumpen. Send it back!
This whole look is just depressing. Excuse me while I youtube some puppies and kittens playing…
Those pumps do not look black to me.
Poor dear mixed up her holidays. You are four months late for that Christmas party, Katie!
Saggy Christmas Ornament.
HEAD UP….CHEST OUT.
Oh honey. No.
Oh no. But Iike the color on her
Everything about this dress is why I don’t get Zac Posen.
Yeah, why does he always use satin? It’s like it’s the only material he knows of.
And satin is clearly one of the devil’s fabrics. You think he would know better by now.
You know, sometimes you need to start at the top to make sure that you are not in conflict with the garment, yah know? A more ‘structured’ hairstyle might have helped this a bit…or, looking at the dress…perhaps not.
From the ankle down she looks fine….
That dress will launch a few pregnancy rumors…
Wow she looks like hell
I rarely say anything negative about anyone (not on here anyway, I have been known to throw my toys out of the pram over at the AV Club… long story) but that hair doesn’t so much look JBF as JBDTAHB*
*Just Been Dragged Through A Hedge Backwards
The side-by-side shot of her and the model look like a Before and After story. Go watch My Fair Lady, Katie, and start working on that posture and attitude.
She needs to go back to armani, she always looked better.
Another spot on the end-of-the-year worst-dressed list has just been taken.
I like the color for her. I like her head, but not with this dress. I hate the dress. At first I thought the hem was turned up shoddily until I looked at the model and it looks the same on her. Little Zac actually meant the hem to look like a bad Home Ec project. Interesting choice. I do not understand the swoonage over Zac Posen dresses – they are, with few exceptions, quite ugly to my eye.
Zac Posen confuses the hell out of me…especially on Project Runway (BRING BACK MICHAEL!)!
I will say he usually gives better overall critiques than Michael did, in terms of easily understood content. It seems to me that Kors can design but isn’t the best teacher whereas Zac is a teacher and not a designer.
I just appreciate that Michael Kors never took himself too seriously on PR and was HILARIOUS. Zac seems to think he’s a gift to the fashion world and I just don’t appreciate his smugness. It’s sad when I can’t wait to hear what NINA is going to say so I can get some comic relief and personality.
Yeah, I agree that the original panel had much better chemistry. I do have to say I preferred Heidi as the clueless yet sometimes lightbulb moment one, Kors as the funny but could get serious when need be one, and Nina as the bitchy critical one.
Okay, you have made me completely reevaluate my original comment and say that you were right!
Clueless Heidi is MY FAVORITE Heidi…especially when she’s in something incredibly tacky/sexy!
Did she fire her hairstylist, at the last minute? Is her makeup artist on strike? I don’t understand what is going on with the face and hair to even comment about the dress.
Oh Joey honey you need a new head.
Meh. Don’t like the dress on Katie. The wind obviously got to her hair, and she forgot to put on makeup. Looks great on Coco. But of course Coco is showing a little personality.
The bottom half of the dress is hideous. That bow thing is not flattering, the fabric is pulling and that “hem”… This would be auffed on PR.
Where are her spanx? Core, darling!
I think she ‘s attempting casual, but comes off looking drunk.
Exciting as a bowl of cold oatmeal….
That full-length 3/4 view says it all. She is 35. Time to stop with the wee waif look. Unfortunately she doesn’t seem to possess any innate style so she allows herself to be dressed in the most godawful garments. And Zac Posen ranks right down there with Stella McC.
Getting serious 1980s high school dance vibes from this dress. Something about the color and the material, not to mention the Martha Quinn hair.
How odd: That dress creates the illusion of terrible posture.
That’s a tragic dress made from an unforgiving fabric. You could carry the contents of your purse in the roll of that hem.
It’s got cup-holders!
Absolutely! I ran down the comments before I posted. I just knew someone would have already said this.
As much as I love Katie and want good things for her, it pains me to say that none of this is working for me. Another fussy, overwrought dress from Zac Posen. The color is nice, but it’s rather Fall-ish. Her bust looks weird, and the hem is unforgivable. Plus the too-casual hair and makeup? Katie, go home and start again.
… and I don’t like the matchy shoes. The idea of that neckline is good on her but then it all goes wrong.
I like this color on her… and that’s it. It looks like she’s either drunk or on heroin. People don’t usually mix the two, right?
A gift-wrapped uterus rarely works for anyone…
From the neck up, she looks like one of those heroin-chic American Apparel models.
This is not working on any level-and Ms. Holmes, please get that stray hair out of your eyes, stat.
wow. there is not one single thing right about this.
Poor Katie, she’s being held captive by that dress.
I blame the Scientologists.
The hip things… they’re frightening me! I guess… the color could be worse, in theory?
All together now…Comb…Yo’…HAIR.
What a fantastically ill suited dress.
She looks like she just had a bad bout of morning sickness, about 4 months pregnant?
I blame Zac Posen for that horribly overdesigned dress, but Katie, I’m going to have to blame you for that head suit. If your dress is that complicated, you have to complete the look with some hair styling and makeup, or you look like a young girl playing dress-up.
I thought it was badly hemmed, but it has that weird bubble-hem effect on the model, too. And that’s the least of the problems.
So true. Coco is one of the fiercest and best posers in the business. if she can’t sell it, the design is clearly at fault.
This is like one of those scared straight Faces of Heroin ads.
that embellishment on the pooch was such a poor design choice.
Girl, that’s not your dress! Or your makeup!
She looks drunk.
Thanks to TLo and the Bitter Kittens I could take just one look at this dress and it would scream Zac Posen at me. He is the “master” of silk and satin with oddly placed bows, draping, bustles, etc.
I don’t think that dress would look good on a hangar.
Sex in the limo. That’s the only excuse for that look.
BRUSH YOUR HAIR WOMAN!
Size up, punkin. Makes your belly look big and you obviously can’t lift your arms.
why the heroin addict makeup?
Oh my gosh. This is just terrible. Hair is terrible, makeup is terrible, dress is REALLY terrible. Whaaaaat is going on here.
A homeless woman who resembles Katie Holmes stole a dress from David’s Bridal and crashed an industry event for the hors d’oeuvres? Is this a Lifetime movie?
To paraphrase another bitter kitten: What. The. Actual. Fuck. am I seeing right now
Those waist folds were all played out by 2008 when Leanne won Project Runway.
Get that woman some chapstick and a hairbrush STAT!
Suri’s filing emancipation papers even as we speak…
Oh my god. HOW DO YOU NOT COMMENT ON THIS?!? This is a great example on why I dislike the ‘whiteboard’ feature. I don’t come here for pictures, I come for witty banter and commentary. This shit is tragic and pregnant. You have to say something.
This is very ‘prom chaperone, post-hookup.’
Sad Charlotte York
Go home, Katie, you’re drunk. That hair and makeup, ugh! The dress does nothing for her at all. Droopy boob and poochy belly. Sheesh! It’s all the fault of that dress!
Girl That Is Nobody’s Dress
What is the opposite of “WERQ”?
WREQ, I believe.
Why do male designers think we would ever want to make our hips look bigger? Ugh! I don’t want to have origami on my hips!
that’s a WTF dress if ever i saw one: bad design, bad fabric, bad color, bad matchymatch shoes. ‘Taint Miss Meadows, it’s a Misfire.
looks like she’s just standing there awkwardly with the dress hanging off her, like she’s a hanger. her face is saying “who am i and what am i doing here?”
I hate it. It’s a made for a completely flat person. That hair and make up makes her look tired and little cray cray. She should stay away from shiny material and find a brush, someone to trim those bangs and new makeup artit.
BRIDESMAID WHO CAME DIRECTLY FROM SLEEPING ON LAST NIGHT’S MAKEUP AND HAIR.
Coca Rocha is selling the hell out of that dress. Katie, not so much.
She looks like she’s ill. That should never happen.
Ohmigod, the cup holders on the hips from a long ago Project Runway episode!! Who was it that did those? Zac Posen STOLE the idea, ha! (j/k)
Good lord woman, No, no, no. The color, the silhouette, the hair, the makeup, the posture…No.
Did she forget to brush her hair before stepping out of the limo? Droopy hair, droopy dress, droopy face. Someone isn’t taking their anti-depressants.
She looks like she could be Elizabeth McGovern’s daughter. Something about the pose, the toothless smile and the chin pointed downward in these pics is giving me Lady Cora. That dress is giving me agita. Who doesn’t want snack caddies on their hips? And the hair. That’s Coachella hair, dear.
That dress is hiddy and she looks like she just rolled out of bed with last night’s makeup, applied during a slumber party, is still on.
She looks like she got busy with someone on the limo ride to the event.
She looks a bit like Angelina Jolie — during her Billy Bob Thornton days. A necklace fashioned from vile of blood would be the perfect accessory for this sad look.
boy does she loathe that dress…as do I.
She looks like a dark haired Goldie Hawn. Which is not particularly flattering when you consider how many years Goldie’s got on her.
A raisn colored trainwreck!
Is it me, or is she morphing into Sally Field?
She looks like the bridesmaid who lost the bouquet fight.
Bad on so many levels — the slumping posture, the sad-sack face, the uncombed hair, the seriously unattractive silhouette of the dress, the pockets that make her look like one of those old-fashioned change-givers at a casino. The whole look is that of a really terrible morning-after.
Hideous. Matronly. Hipbows. BAD.
She looks like someone roughed her up just before she hit the RC.
nice color on her, maybe only her.
Look! That woman looks a lot like Katie Holmes!
She is boring and this dress is awful. She looks like shes trying to look British eccentric and it’s not her. Go back to the Gap.
Not trying to be mean, but if she didn’t live in NYC, would she get as much attention?
OH she CANNOT work those droopy shoulder thingys. It doesn’t look good on her! I’m fine with the rest of the dress.
Still laying low in fear of Scientology I see…..
Girl That’s Not Your Posture
