Katie seems to be saying, “Is this OK? This is OK, right? I thought so.” Yes, this is OK, but just OK. We remember that denim wash, Holmes. You’re right on trend, but we take issue with that pant length.
Grade: B. (Not terrible, but do your hair. You’re on TRL!)
Oh, dear. Katie went from tough chick to Easter chick with this horrifying dress. Worse, she totally doesn’t mesh with her castmates (from L-R, James Van der Beek, Kerr Smith, Michelle Williams and Joshua Jackson).
Here’s Katie (with Claire Danes!) at what’s probably her first fashion week experience. She wore this lovely satin sheet to the Calvin Klein show. Joey Potter got a great fashion orientation this year — she also went to the Vera Wang show and hung out with Carolina Herrera at the Fragrance Foundation’s FiFi Awards.
Grade: C. (Shapeless sheet, but excellent color choice.)
There’s no denying that when Katie started dating Tom Cruise, she started making smarter style choices (still, we attribute this more to her maturing and not, you know, Tom’s influence). We dig the hair and the plunging neckline of the jumpsuit.
Grade: B+. (Fab outfit, not sure about the accessory.)
BAM! Can you believe this was the same year as the previous picture? This looks like an ad for something sexy. We love everything about this: the black tights, the high waist, the insane flare, the big sunglasses, the hair whipping in the wind. Good for Katie for pumping up the volume when in Paris with Victoria Beckham!
Grade A: (When in Paris with Posh…)
Katie skipped the Dizzy Feet event in 2012 — it was supposed to be her first red carpet appearance since splitting from Tom Cruise. We don’t know what she would have worn, but we loved her look in 2009!
Grade: A. (Sleek and fabulous.)
