Katie Holmes in a hot pink dress & great coat for Letterman: awkward or sexy?

Katie Holmes

Here are photos of Katie Holmes yesterday outside the Ed Sullivan theater ahead of an episode of “Late Night with David Letterman.” It must have been really creepy to have to sit in the exact same seat as Tom just a few days ago when Letterman dropped his F-bomb. Like, I bet she could pick up his advanced, OT Level VIII scent in the chair. Maybe Dave swapped out chairs in advance for her. I’d hate to put my butt where Tom’s lift-wearing butt has been, and I haven’t even slept with the guy.

Look at what Katie’s wearing! She looks fantastic in this body-hugging, hot pink dress, doesn’t she? Nice coat too. Katie is definitely not sleeping with Tom now, and she might even be dating again, according to an eyewitness report from the NY Daily News:

Katie Holmes may have dived into the New York City dating pool. The Dead Accounts actress and mom to 6-year-old daughter Suri was spotted with a handsome guy who walked her inside her Chelsea building late Saturday night and lingered while they said an extended goodbye.

“They were saying a long, long goodnight, talking and looking pretty romantic in the lobby around 2 a.m.,” an eyewitness tells Confidenti@l’s Marianne Garvey. “He looked like a finance type, was wearing classic Cole Haan shoes and a navy pea coat. He walked her to the elevator and then she said ‘good night’ and smiled.”

Our spy also says Holmes, who turned 34 on Tuesday, looked “gorgeous,” dressed simply in a white Burberry trench with jeans and flats and was leaning against the wall “twirling her hair with one leg up. She was very pretty and very flirty.”

I hope this story is true, and Katie had a certain glow to herself last night. Girl is working it.

Here’s a clip from last night’s Letterman episode. It’s not really noteworthy (Katie talks about forgetting part of her speech for Dead Accounts) except to see a full view of the dress. Also, the difference between this and her 2008 Letterman appearance is pretty signficant. Bye bye, Katebot.

This week’s tabloids are all worked up about whether Suri will spend Christmas with Tom or Katie. As we’ve already heard, Tom claims that all of his kids will be with him for the holidays. However, he allegedly spent Thanksgiving with Suri, so it must be Katie’s turn for Christmas. Of course, we just covered this week’s Star story that says Katie and Tom were doing it while he was visiting NYC to promote Jack Reacher, and the full story has even grosser (totally made-up) details about how “Katie’s physical passion for Tom never subsided,” and they’re going to spend Christmas together as a cohesive family unit in Telluride. Whatever.

Unfortunately, Katie changed outfits after the taping of “The Late Show,” and I really don’t know why she was wearing this. She kind of lost me here.

    I do not like that neckline on her.
    I am glad we are done with Katebot

  2. SofiaR says:

    Has she EVER worn a pair of flattering/unfug shoes? :/

  3. lori says:

    I don’t understand why these people have to change clothes 2 or 3 times for one appearance. Its ridiculous.

  4. Aria says:

    As I said in older posts, her style is improving. Baby steps.
    I adore the first ensemble and I kind of like the last one from the waist up.

    Merry Christmas!

  5. littlestar says:

    She looks gorgeous! Her hair and face are lovely. Now that she’s rid of Tom, it looks like she’s finally come into her own. And I LOVE that pink dress – does anyone know who designed it? Not that I can afford it, but it’s nice to dream :) .

  6. RobN says:

    Nothing but haters around here. There is nothing better than a nice pair of red Christmas sweats.

  7. Happy21 says:

    She looks good but needs some lift by way of a good bra. Her tits look awful.

  8. Isa says:

    Boring! I still can’t believe she is also a designer. Awful clothes.

  9. katherine says:

    This woman is so freaking gorgeous. I hate her for having such a beautiful face. I dont like her body well I dont like her style she needs to be more glamorous. She looks so much like Kate Middleton.If I was her I would become friends with something called BOTOX!

  10. bea says:

    I think she’s working with a stylist now.

    The nude shoe REALLY helps her legs out. Also, her slacks (which look like super fancy sweat pants) are flattering. Not crazy about the shoes, but not horrible.

    Very pretty, natural look.

  11. mkyarwood says:

    I’d wear that second outfit. It’s kind of boygirl, and I like that style. Even the weird booties are interesting to me, though docs would work better, and the jacket should be a lighter blue.

  12. Moana says:

    Katie fancies herself a fashion maven, but she rarely wears anything that looks good on HER. She’s not the trendsetter she imagines.

    • TG says:

      I agree Katie and Jessica Biel both have the saem problem with style. They both think they are special and hip and they aren’t. They just don’t look right in the clothes that they choose to wear. Though I love the red pants outfit except for those f*cking ugly booties. I really can’t stand those Isabel Marant short boots everyone is wearing. Country music looks rarely ever look good on anyone. But, I hate tiny tom so I love that she is stealing his thunder.

  13. Hannah says:

    She is so beautiful! And no fake hair or eyelashes either!

  14. serena says:

    God she looked amazing, now this is the Katie I want to see.

  15. KellyinSeattle says:

    I think she’s beautiful and lovely, but I hate the clothes.

  16. Eleonor says:

    That coat is beautiful. The second outfit is a mess, what the hell that shoes are awful!!

    Speaking of shoes, I can’t tell how I loved Nicole Kidman (on the Late Show) and her “I can wear heels now” after the divorce.

  17. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    She looks so beautiful lately, and it’s great to see the sparkle back in her eyes. Welcome back Katie!

    I bet she has some great horror stories to tell about being married to Tiny Tom… Shame that we will never hear them.

  18. Memphis says:

    I’ve always liked Katie, and she’s looking so much better recently! The pink dress and coat was a good choice…But that second outfit, sorry, but it’s just all kinds of unmatched ugly.

  19. Fran says:

    This has got to be the youngest 34 year old I have ever seen. She really looks 10 years younger then her age.

  20. Belle says:

    I think she looks gorgeous… I hate the second outfit (except the blue coat, as I posted above… lol), but she still looks beautiful in it :)

    Also mentioned above… anyone take note of the outfit described on her alleged date… the white Burberry trench with jeans and flats? For some reason, I want that outfit without having even seen it!

  21. J7 says:

    She NEVER manages to get it right! Does she choose her clothes whilst blindfolded???

  22. Jenny says:

    She looks so happy, makes me so happy for her! I also love the pink dress, her hair an make up, she is so beautiful.

  23. Little Miss Sunshine says:

    “I’d hate to put my butt where Tom’s lift-wearing butt has been, and I haven’t even slept with the guy.”

    Neither has Katie.

    • Lauren says:

      Katie looks pretty. I am amazed at her tenacity, and Tom underestimated her as well. She has a pretty face and hair, but sorry, her legs are chunky and unfortunate. Relieved the Tommy-Suri freakshow has expired, and Katie is trying to provide a stable environment for Suri.

  24. annie says:

    James Van de Beek , once said in an interview about Katie, that she doesn’t realise how beautiful she is. I always thought it amazing, you see all these actresses and models, who think they are something, and here is a girl who probably could leave them all in the shade, and doesn’t always take advantage of this fact.
    I read that the guy in the above article is gay, and that he’s Katies best friend.
    Before Tom , Katie had a gay best friend, she said so in an Instyle interview, I wonder if it’s him?
    Anyway, I like both outfits, the pink dress and coat are nice, and the other one is cute and casual.
    Katie’s a gorgeous girl, she should take advantage, dress up and use makeup more often.

  25. asdfg says:

    Both outfits are awkward. She needs a new hair style, color or something. Not sure.

  26. hmm says:


    That “interview” LOL

    She’s so BORING! No personality.

    She is Joey Potter.

  27. BengalCat2000 says:

    I caught “Pieces of April” on tv a few weeks ago & it made me love her. So what if she doesn’t have the best style, she seems more down to earth than most celebs.

  28. Christina says:

    She looks great! Getting away from that deluded freak Tom is the best thing she could have ever done. I was a fan of hers for a long time before she got brainwashed into marrying that midgety lunatic. I am hoping she can get back to making better movies soon. Pieces Of April is an underrated gem. I really love that movie, and it also has Patricia Clarkson, who is phenomenal in pretty much everything.

    • BengalCat2000 says:

      @ Christina, I hope she chooses more indie films/theatre now that she dumped that maniacal hobbit. I saw POA when it came out yrs ago & seeing it again (randomly on the tube) reminded me that she’s too good for shite like “Jack & Jill”.

  29. Elizabeth says:

    Is it just me or does Katie really have a brise on her right bo*b ? :O passions with TOm?? *eyeroll*

  30. Ace says:

    How did she meet Tom in the first place? I remember thinking “how random”. Why is “Joey Potter” with Tom Cruise!? How did they actually meet?

  31. Barrett says:

    She looks pretty. Great pink color. But she has unusually droopy boobs for a young woman. She needed the top of the dress, tightened at the straps or a better bra, something…. It’s weird like she often gets part of her look right but forgets an aspect which leaves the look slightly off or sloppy!

  32. baja says:

    this “Slutty” dress is her way to say: SO LONG SUCKER TOM!!

  33. I.want.shoes says:

    She looks great. And maybe it’s the holiday cheers rubbing off on me, but I am willing to even forgive her red sweatpants. But NOT the fug booties.

  34. Scarlet Pimpernel says:

    Yay! Sparkle is back in those eyes!

  35. leushka says:

    To me she is an absolutely mediocre looking woman. Do not understand why she is considered to be a star, if there are in EU full streets of such women. However I like her style as it is very similar to what we like in EU. Finally she wears make up when she goes out. Good for her.

  36. la chica says:

    Very ordinary-looking woman. Nothing special. Twisted mouth. Cankles. Slouchy body. Tom only picked her because she went around saying that her lifelong wish was to be his wife. And then her dream/nightmare came through. Be careful what you wish for.

  37. Jayna says:

    That second outfit is awful. Love the first.

  38. izza says:

    She’s nice looking, but seems to have lost a lot of weight. Love to dress her,for a few outings, she would look amazing!
