Yesterday was Katie Holmes‘ birthday, so Tom took the family out to dinner to celebrate. That’s sweet, isn’t it? I thought that for about two seconds, and then I started wondering about what Katie is wearing.
See, I’ve read Evil Beet for a long, long time before I actually started working here. And for those of you who have also been here a long time, you probably remember the Katie Holmes Jean Watch. It was a period in 2008 in which Katie Holmes insisted on wearing silly pants, and it alerted me to her occasional lack of fashion sense. Since then, especially since I started this job, I’ve kept a close eye on Katie and her clothes. And that’s how we are here today.
Do you guys like Katie’s outfit? Because I can’t decide. The shoes are cute, but jumpsuits make me anxious. I need some help with this one, friends.
“We literally bumped into that top Scientologist Katie Holmes on the way into the studio. We came out of the lift and BANG, there she was.Now at this point my mate, and friend of the stars, Scully was doing a bit of filming for my website and managed to capture the moment. [Holmes] looked a bit miffed at the various North-West accents and some vigorous handshaking. … [But] There was no need to send one of her people over to demand the video be deleted!!!! Unf***in’-believable. We didn’t let [Holmes] spoil the day though. And what a day. Loved it.”
Oasis’s Noel Gallagher on meeting Katie Holmes for the first time, which he claims to have actually been sort of excited about prior to their actual meeting. Too bad Katie’s apparently a super-bitch ice queen who thinks she’s hot shit because she came in 3rd or 4th yet won the Tom Cruise Looks for an All-American Girl contest.
During the month of October, I kind of got obsessed with scary movies. We were buying a few DVDs a week, going to the awesome second-run movie theater in the next town over, and borrowing whatever we could from friends. It was kind of a problem, but like a really really fun problem that you don’t realize is a problem until you wake up a few nights in a row from awful nightmares about old lady vampires and zombie children on a school bus. Since then, I’ve moved on to documentaries about animals, but the terror still lingers in my mind.
So maybe I’m letting that affect how I’m viewing this picture of Katie Holmes and little Suri. Maybe in reality, this is a picture of an adorable little girl and her doting mother, and I have no reason to be afraid. Or maybe I’m onto something …
Katie Holmes is one of those celebrities that I will never get sick of … looking at. She’s sort of average-ish, I guess, but in her average-ness is complete gorgeousness. I’m not saying that anyone who can snag Tom Cruise has got to be hot, because I think he was getting pretty desperate to settle down when he “chose” Katie out of a group of five or six other Hollywood starlets who happened to be available at the time, but I am saying that Tom kind of won the marriage lottery, because Katie gets far less credit than what she actually deserves. I mean, yeah, she moves her face in funny ways when she talks and sort of portrays every character she’s cast as the same, but hey. Her beginnings were humble – she came from Dawson’s Creek, and hell. Look where she is now.
I’ve always been a fan of Katie Holmes‘ look. She’s pretty without being overdone (when she’s not being Photoshopped to oblivion), and her overall look is soft and feminine no matter if she’s rocking sweats and sweat, or a dress that I’d have to save up for three years in order to purchase. That being said, girlfriend looks absolutely awesome on the October cover of Elle Russia, doesn’t she? I mean, she practically looks like she’s both in control of her own mind, and making her own career and business decisions! I don’t know what kind of newfangled Photoshop feature that is, but she’s working it well, folks!
Listen up, kiddies: I am a huge horror fan (and here is my favorite horror movie site), but I am also a pauper. So I seldom see movies in the theater unless I am super convinced of either their terrifyingness or their terrible-ness.
The last movie I saw was Insidious, for instance. (Do you have Catholic guilt? Do you suffer from sleep paralysis? If either question earns a “yes,” please do not see Insidious, because it is a Mindfreak in the worst way. Love, Sleepless in Chicago, Still.)
So! Here’s a surprisingly-competent Katie Holmes (with Memento‘s Guy Pearce) in the Guillermo del Toro -produced Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark:
Next: I’ve heard and read a lot of complaints about the trailer for the Francis Ford Coppola’s Twixt, an indie horror starring Val Kilmer, Elle Fanning, and Bruce Dern, with music by Dan Deacon. Folks say the trailer looks cheap; I think it looks like a horror film populated by paper dolls. What do you think?
Finally, here’s perennial unicorn Tilda Swinton—and co-starring John C. Reilly as her husband—in a horrific Bad Seed plot about a mother and her sociopath son (based on a novel based on a true-ish story).
For those of you who have followed this blog for a long time, or even those of you who have kept up with celebrity gossip for a long time, you’ll remember that Katie Holmes hasn’t always had the greatest fashion sense. Sure, she’s been looking better these days, I guess, but this is the first time I think she’s looked cute. Or, you know, almost cute. Either way, it’s a start.
The only things I don’t like about this dress are the sides of it, because I think cut out dresses are usually silly, and the hem. There’s something off about the hem, isn’t there? I don’t know, it bothers me, and that’s mostly what’s keeping me from just flat out calling her adorable here.
