The Met Costume Institute Gala 2008: Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise

And she was doing so well, too…

To be fair to Katie Holmes, this dress of hers wasn’t quite so shiny from every angle, but oh, those sequins! That flash! The gold chains and bright blue shoes! It’s all looking a helluva lot cheaper than it probably cost, not to mention the fact that the dress looks like it was designed for someone older than Katie/someone who actually lives in the 1980s. What do you think?

    Somehow, I really don’t like how this Giorgio Armani dress looks on Katie. It’s such a forgettable dress! And by pairing with BLUE HEELS looks even worse. Sorry katie, love ya, but not today. 😀

    And the dark makeup didn’t help either – what was that all about? Not her best night by a long shot.

    Maybe she meant to choose Superman’s colours. I hope so.

    It’s like some hellish 80s/Wonder Woman/Mr T/Edwardian nightmare. Does the woman not have mirrors in her house?!

    i think maybe the dress could have been pulled off by someone else at some other time with some other shoes… but just not now on katie holmes..

    Are you all mental?
    The point of wearing this huge bright sparkley frock is to detract attention from Short-Maude on her arm.
    Job well done Katie – nobody noticed the crazy midget.

    i would have LOVED this if it was shorter….its just too much!
    but the shoes are great with the dress and her skin looks gorg with the gold jewelry.
