Celebrities Undressed by Kat Giantis

No,  it's nothing that's NSFW - it's just a fashion article.   

Extreme Makeover: Holmes Edition

We've heard it a lot in recent days: Katie Holmes, fashion icon. But just because something is said over and over again doesn't make it true (e.g. Paris Hilton, philanthropist). Now, with comparisons to Jackie O (the face-eating sunglasses) and Vogue overlord Anna Wintour (the laser-cut bob, although is anyone else seeing Edna Mode from "The Incredibles"? Must just be us) flying fast and spuriously, it seems a good time to point out that on her last birthday, Mrs. Tom Cruise turned 29, which makes her a bit dewy for icon status. It also means she's far too young to wander out in public in a standard issue fuzzy grandma robe and post-cataract sunglasses. We don't know if Katie's in-progress transformation from fresh-faced starlet into high-society grande dame is designed to make her appear more age-appropriate for her appreciably older hubby, but soon she'll be bordering on cougar territory, which, to use her favorite superlatives, is neither "magical" nor "amazing."

For the rest of the list:

it's true, but that character's physical features were derived specifically from anna wintour.

I still watch Dawson's Creek. On the N.
owlster 17th-Jan-2008 10:41 pm (UTC)
i'll always love that show

the laser-cut bob, although is anyone else seeing Edna Mode from "The Incredibles"? Must just be us
That is EXACTLY what I thought when I saw that hair. Oh, god no, put a wig on or something.
snobbyshannie 17th-Jan-2008 09:52 pm (UTC)
i agree with this 100%
andieanderson 17th-Jan-2008 09:56 pm (UTC)
wow, that is completely dead on. katie holmes and tom cruise just plain suck. end of story.
angedesoir 17th-Jan-2008 09:56 pm (UTC)
Somehow I think Katie Holmes is older than she lets on.

whirlofagirl 17th-Jan-2008 09:57 pm (UTC)
her style consultant should be getting the credit.
letmeupgradeu 17th-Jan-2008 10:03 pm (UTC)
she's tall and has a stylist. BFD
status_hood 17th-Jan-2008 10:03 pm (UTC)
idk... I like the way she dresses. She looks classy and her clothes go well with her body type. I've always loved her and still do... I just wish she wasn't with Tom . But the way she describes her family is really obnoxious and ridiculous. It makes her sound so up in the clouds.
batteal 17th-Jan-2008 10:07 pm (UTC)
Lol, this article is pretty dead-on.

If she's a "style icon," it's a really boring style. Not offensive or anything, heavens no, but BO-RING, and unoriginal. Pretty sure actual style icons aren't supposed to be clones.
kittenrescue 17th-Jan-2008 10:33 pm (UTC)
I agree that she looks classy, which is a refreshing change from the way some celebs dress. But she's also not exactly innovative, which is a requisite for icon status.

If she wasn't married to Tom (with access to his $)she'd still be wearing clothes from The Gap.
blitzkriegkc 17th-Jan-2008 10:14 pm (UTC)
No, but her stylist should at least get the credit; the cruises are all so overrated.

double_flusher 17th-Jan-2008 10:18 pm (UTC)
lol style icon

uh, anyone else remember the silver Xenu-tastic dress she wore in a post a couple days back, where the back was all missing and fucked up and shaped like a Star Trek communicator device?
owlster 17th-Jan-2008 10:28 pm (UTC)
she's become pretentious. and she's a horrible dresser.
sugary_placenta 17th-Jan-2008 10:32 pm (UTC)
She has become a little pretentious. Like she'd actually be relevant if it weren't for her marriage to Tom.
kittenrescue 17th-Jan-2008 10:34 pm (UTC)
She's become caught up in her own PR. Not an unusual scenario.
owlster 17th-Jan-2008 10:39 pm (UTC)
She's caught up in her *~*magical*~* life and that's all that matters
jeaninemichelle 17th-Jan-2008 10:39 pm (UTC)
can you imagine what crazy tom would do if she DID go around flashing someone? ...all that work preparing her womb for nothing.
sugary_placenta 17th-Jan-2008 10:31 pm (UTC)
I am so glad everyone else is commenting on how old she is starting to dress/look. WTF? Keep it youthful Katie! Oh wait, I mean, Kate.

Also, the comparison between her and Edna Mode is hilariously true!
owlster 17th-Jan-2008 10:40 pm (UTC)
people have been saying she looks/dresses like she's 40 for months and months. now i just find it annoying with her interest in fashion, because she does not have good style.
sugary_placenta 17th-Jan-2008 11:13 pm (UTC)
Really? I guess I missed that while reading celeb gossip. I wish she'd dress her age. You can have style and be interested in fashion without having to dress like an old lady, "Kate".
promisemewings 18th-Jan-2008 01:08 am (UTC)
She dresses like how I think Tom or Victoria Beckham tells her to dress.
antebellumcafe 18th-Jan-2008 03:13 am (UTC)
I think it's a strategy to make her into a credible actress.

Did you see Batman Begins? No one bought her as the assistant DA or whatever. Everyone saw Joey from Dawson's Creek. Hence the plastic surgery, new haircut, older dressing, etc.
sugary_placenta 18th-Jan-2008 03:20 am (UTC)
It probably is. Marrying Tom Cruise is still the best career move she has ever made bahah.
kittenrescue 18th-Jan-2008 01:36 pm (UTC)
But then why choose a role like the one in "Mad Money"?
antebellumcafe 18th-Jan-2008 03:00 pm (UTC)
"I bet she can do comedy. Let's put her in a movie with Diane Keaton and Queen Latifa. Old ladies and black people will go see it!"

You know how when you have sex with a bunch of people in order to forget that really long relationship you had? Well, it's kind of like that.
sophie_ann 17th-Jan-2008 10:32 pm (UTC)
tbh, she has some good fashion ~moments~, but it all seems way too forced

and she still looks dead in the eyes
notenuffglitter 17th-Jan-2008 10:50 pm (UTC)
she's not an icon of anything. not even on LJ
jeannie81 18th-Jan-2008 12:19 am (UTC)
At first glance I thought it was Anna Wintour.
promisemewings 18th-Jan-2008 01:07 am (UTC)
Yeah, she's stylish, but it just seems so....blah and unoriginal.

Does nothing for me. *yawn*
glum_anddumb 18th-Jan-2008 02:33 am (UTC)
My cousin went to high school with Katie Holmes. Apparently she was a slut. Idk.
kittenrescue 18th-Jan-2008 01:35 pm (UTC)
I found her stand about 'waiting for marriage' hard to believe. Does she expect people to believe that she didn't put out for Chris Klein for 5 years and then gave it to Tom Cruise after 5 minutes.
antebellumcafe 18th-Jan-2008 03:09 am (UTC)
did anyone see that episode of Will & Grace where Will gives Grace's sister a make over?

he gives her that same bob hair cut. i always think of that when i see Katie Holmes.
