Fugger: Katie Holmes

Mostly Fabs: WWD and Variety Stylemaker’s Party

ALL of these people look like they’re going to a party in June — other, perhaps, than Katie Holmes — but it’s a REAL CUTE party.

Fugs and Fabs: The Fashion Group International Gala

We saw Diane Kruger’s offering; now let’s check out the rest, headlined by The Return of the Biel. (Is their portmanteau Timbielake or is that too confusing?)

CFDA Meh Carpet: Katie Holmes in Ralph Lauren

I do love olive green, and naps, and this is basically both of those things together:

It’s… FINE, and she’s dressed, and she brushed her hair, but is this even remotely passing for the best or dreamiest or weirdest (or even riskiest) in fashion on a night meant to honor that? No. My money is on Katie Holmes glancing enviously across the room at Diane Kruger and thinking, “Why? WHY is that never me?” (Which would be awkward, as Diane is with Katie’s off-screen ex and on-screen love, Pacey, but it would be fair to have regrets about that TOO.) Imagine if Katie, just once, showed up in something like that red Prabal, styled with a Kruger-like updo. Our breath would leave our bodies and we’d be like, “FINALLY. IT’S FINALLY HAPPENING.” Instead… still waiting. You can do it, Katie. SURPRISE US. THERE’S STILL TIME.

Met Gala Fug or Fab: Katie Holmes in Zac Posen

On his Instagram, Zac Posen called this his “auspicious clouds dress.”

I actually quite like it, especially as a departure from the usual hourglass-shaped satiny gowns he likes to do, with lots of twists and darts in the bodice. This has a serenity to it – a gorgeous, inky night sky with gently swirling clouds.

And of course, an open back:

Fug or Fab: Katie Holmes

All my magazines are intent on reporting this Katie Holmes/Jamie Foxx hookup, which dances around the idea that they’re having sex but don’t care if it goes anywhere. I really wish Katie and Jamie would go ahead and release a joint statement that says, “Yes, we are just nailing. We’re cool with it. We are two consenting adults who have fulfilling lives and are completely content to bang casually when the mood and geography work in our favor.”  Then again, maybe that’s what this face says:

The lips say, “I had lipstick on AT ONE POINT but it DISAPPEARED. Perhaps onto SOMEONE ELSE’S FACE.” The dress says that even killer fabrics can be ruined when something is at least a size too small, and cut like a very strange geometry experiment. And the shoes say, “Who CARES? We want to eavesdrop from the bedroom floor while she tells Jamie Foxx all about Scientology.”

Fug or Fab: Katie Holmes in Marc Cain

I was going to full-out fug this, and then I looked at it, and it’s CRAZY but I might kind of enjoy it?

But it might just be the cozy goodness of that coat speaking to me.

Golden Globes Well Played: Katie Holmes in Marchesa

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Marchesa gown so completely… chill.

She looks good, right? We were jonesing for Katie to pop out of the Cruise divorce looking insanely stylish and sleek, and instead we got this abominable Kors top and Belle’s dress after the beast accidentally sneezed on it (can you even believe that’s from the same designer as this?) and good lord I just can’t. So while this might not be turning my soul into an inferno, it’s solid and pretty and TWO BRACELETS and her CHEEKBONES and I’ll take it.
