I came across this photo of Katie Holmes a week or so ago and fell in love. Last Tuesday, September 16, she attended a DuJour Magazine party, held in her honor, in NYC, wearing this stretch knit dress by Azzedine Alaia.
The vertical striping of the black dress exposed a black bra beneath; something quite revealing as far as Katie’s fashion aesthetic is known. However; it all appeared tastefully done, rather than a cry to show done skin in a scandalous sense. And how about that pleated bottom?! These aren’t your standard issue school girl pleats; these are much more flirty and have much visual impact/movement. I can see this look as a whole working for many silhouettes and Katie can certainly be looked to for trend inspiration.
Keeping the rest of her look simple and chic with simple jewelry and black pumps, Katie’s voluminous blowout and smoky eye rounded things out quite beautifully.
