Katie Holmes in Zac Posen at Brooks Brothers event: gorgeous?


Katie Holmes attended the Brooks Brothers Bicentennial Celebration in this plum Zac Posen gown and accessorized with Zac himself. She looked incredible. The color is luscious. I’d have preferred the embroidery just around the neck, I think the detailing under the bust detracts from the cut of the bodice but it’s not terrible. This is a lovely silhouette on Katie. The only real criticism I have with it is the fabric is so light, the dress veers into the formal nightgown territory and I really, really don’t want for that trend to resurface. But the dress had a cute little crop jacket (you can see here) that makes up for it. This would have been my go-to wedding look in the 90s: jacket for the ceremony, removed to reveal a sleek little number for dancing. She looks like she only wore a bracelet by way of jewelry, which looks fine, I just haven’t seen that before. I would have needed earrings if it was me.

In other Katie news, she and Jamie Foxx were spotted out recently at Nobu in New York City. You can see photos of them here. As usual, they weren’t hiding but tried to stay lowkey on their datenight. However, she wore a bright purple floral kimono-style coat and floppy hat while he opted for fire-engine red satin crew jacket – not exactly subtle. As far as the status of their relationship, without direct confirmation, it sounds like they’re just doing their thing. They’re together, they adore each other but they want to stay under the radar. Why? Because that’s what’s been working for them:

The pair has kept their romance extremely private since they were first spotted dancing with one another in the Hamptons in 2013, one year after the Dawson’s Creek alum split from Tom Cruise following six years of marriage. Since then, they’ve mostly spent time together at one another’s homes in Los Angeles and avoided the spotlight.

“Jamie and Katie’s relationship is not a secret but they both like to keep it under the radar,” a Foxx source previously told PEOPLE of the couple. “They have nothing to hide but Jamie, especially, is very low key about his life in general, and rarely talks about it. He is not one to acknowledge anything about his private life and neither does Katie.”

“They are happy, they just don’t flaunt anything,” the insider continued. “Jamie will always go out of his way to stay discreet. That is his way, and it works for him. If they could stay secret forever, Jamie would be happy.”

It makes sense. Jamie really has always been low profile about his personal life and Katie, well – I imagine she’s had enough of high profile romances. A part of me wonders if they are actually exclusively together but another part thinks, eh – they’ve been together for five years, whatever they’ve got, it’s working so who cares.

    No… I don’t like it one bit.the colour is too sombre and matronly and the cut makes her body look shapeless and bad.

    • Josephine says:

      In other pics it has a little jacket that makes it look 100% mother of the bride. I don’t hate it without the jacket, but I agree that it leans toward matronly. Maybe the material?

    • Ture says:

      The dress is lovely. Those shoes with that dress though, that’s another story. I think she should have gone with sandals. I always feel like sandals rather than courts should be worn with maxi gowns. That’s my opinion though

      • Rachel in August says:

        I love it as well, and the unusual colour is so understated and pretty. At least the dress is not wearing HER.

  2. Naptime says:

    She’s incredibly slim but I still think this fit is way too tight. That’s some fine tailoring/craftsmanship though… The fact that there isn’t a single crease. Did she talk there and stand all night??

  3. Chrissy says:

    I think you’re right Hecate. Some dangly earrings would have looked great.

    • imqrious2 says:

      Definitely needed a little sparkle by her face. She looks rather tired. A bit of a primer/highlighter mixed with concealer under her eyes would do wonders (just had a Chanel makeup makeover with one of their top artists, and when he did this for me…WOW what a difference under my eyes!).

      Anyway…LOVE the hairstyle on her.

  4. Louise177 says:

    The dress is ok. It’s very vanilla so not much to criticize. As for Katie and Jamie’s relationship, I think it’s fine that they don’t talk about each other. It’s what they want.

  5. Eliza says:

    New mom and nothing to watch on tv, so I’ve been binging Project Runway on demand after coming across it on tv (haven’t seen it since Christian S won foreeever ago).

    1) I realise i like Zac as a tv personality, and 2) the fact that he’s creative head for brooks brothers woman seems so random but hey get paid.

    I also like that Zac and Katie have such a supportive relationship. They both seem like such nice people.

  6. Astrid says:

    The dress makes her boobs look weird

  7. annabanana says:

    Something looks odd with her face I can’t say what exactly. She kinda looks like someone on the solo pics, I want to say Sandra bullock but not sure.

    • Henners of Oz says:

      I think she’s gone too heavy on the bronzer / fake tan. Her arms are much fairer than her face. I like the dress on her, hate the shoes though, terrible pairing

  8. Redgrl says:

    Ah, anyone who has managed to escape from a cult and keep her child safe can wear whatever she likes as far as I’m concerned! 😉 That said, I don’t mind the dress but the bolero is a big no for me.

  9. kiddo says:

    Looks like a bridesmaid dress from 2001.
    Hard pass.

  10. naomipaige says:

    Feh! I’m not impressed. Not sure what the big deal is about with this chick. She’s a dime a dozen.

  11. Beth says:

    Not the worst, but it’s kind of boring with nothing special about it. I really dislike shoes with pointy toes, and them being nude colored makes them even worse

  12. T.Fanty says:

    Re: the nightgown dress trend coming back. I think we are safe. I don’t think that anyone is looking at Katie Holmes’ sartorial choices and thinking “trailblazer.”

  13. LadyT says:

    I’m impressed how incredibly smooth it looks on her. When I was a 20 yr old gymnast I had a satin biased cut gown and it looked like a lumpy bumpy mess compared to this and there were no actual lumps and bumps. Maybe foundations? But extremely well hidden.

  14. Spicecake38 says:

    Love her hair,she does short hair well.She’s a simple beauty and I like that she’s not in the spotlight with her relationship with Jamie.

  15. Angel says:

    I like her hair

  16. cf86713 says:

    I actually like the dress and the hair but I thought that mermaid dress and hair style she had a while back was much better than this look.

  17. A Fan says:

    Never thought I’d say this about Katie Holmes…but, YES, she looked gorgeous. She consistently wears the worst clothes for her body shape. This is very, very flattering on her. It may not be the hippest or most fashionable dress around, but, boy it looks good on her. Her hair looks great, too.

    [*All around winner. Hope it lasts.*]

    I find Katie very unique in the world of stardom, in that she never goes out of her way to impresss, you me or whoever, she is who she is, she wears what she wants, how she wants it and doesn’t give a fig,
    Could give hundred examples of stars who wear the same style, at each event, she doesn’t, she wears anything and everything , as long as there is variety , she will wear it.
    Jen Aniston hasn’t changed her style in like forever, I get it, why change something , when nothing else suits me, and that is the norm in Hollywood, In reality they are all plain Janes, pretending to be something they are not, so scared to show their real selves to the world.
    Then again there’s always The Kardashians, the whole sad lot of them.

  19. annie says:

    love her hair like that, carries the dress well, love her friendship with ZP.
    katie always looks good in his clothes.
    as for her relationship with jamie, saw some blurred pics of him taking her home in LA and since he looks like he introduced her to the luxe life lounge , nobody can see when she flies in and out , same with him.
    one thing tho, they both wear the same gucci shoes with the fur. i am sure she presented at grammys because of him and i am sure he had an hour long interview at the tribecca film festival, because she is best friends with jane rosenthall, who started up the festival with robert dinero, i like how they look out for each other.
    still can’t shake my doubts about jamie, then again i gave TC the benefit of the doubt many times when katie was with him, so maybe not such a good judge of character,
