In or Out: Katie Holmes in Stella McCartney
We’ve been looking at this all day and it intrigues us just enough to want to devote a post to it, but apparently not enough that we can make a ruling. We think there’s an innate chicness to the idea of this look – and it does, in fact, look chic on the model – but any chicness seems to have evaporated the minute Mrs. Cruise put this on. And we can’t really figure out why. She’s got the figure to wear this look and it appears to fit her okay. We kind of like the polka dot pumps, even if they do look half a size too big. The hair and makeup aren’t head-turning or anything but they’re inoffensive. We even like the turned-up sleeves. But something about this kind of look seems not to work with her.
We’re being so maddeningly vague because that’s exactly how we feel about it: vague. Vaguely interested; vaguely not liking it upon inspection. We’re turning the inning and outing duties over to you, our beloved minions. Is she IN or is she OUT?
Remember to show your work.
