Katie Holmes is a simple girl at heart
It seems like every week Katie Holmes delights us with a stylish new street look in New York, so it’s only fitting that the actress was a star guest at the opening party of high-end retailer Fashionphile. for second-hand luxury handbags and accessories that have just arrived in Manhattan.
Holmes peeked into his closet to BAZAAR.com and revealed to us what her wardrobe is all about these days, how she shops, and what items she can’t live without.
After attending the Silver Ball, The Moth’s 25th anniversary gala honoring David Byrne – for which she wore an airy sherbet orange dress on the red carpet with boyfriend Bobby Wooten – Holmes says she is in made “pretty simple” when it comes to her style. And if she’s being honest, she wasn’t always too into fashion.
“It really came with the job of being an actor,” she says BAZAAR of her relatively recent interest in clothing.
“I did two movies in a row this year, and I also did the costumes, which made me appreciate my costume designer friends and all the costume designers I’ve worked with in the past,” said said Holmes, speaking about the film Rare Items and an as-yet-untitled Connecticut-based romance film. “It made me appreciate silhouettes and cuts and colors in a way that I thought I had, but when you put it on camera, when you’re trying to tell a story, you can see how clothes can do a lot. work for you.”
The actress says storytelling is her true passion, so making fashion part of it and growing with it throughout her film career has been very rewarding. “And we live in a world where we have a premiere and you want to be beautiful, and it becomes a fashion person and I’m like, well, I just like to be beautiful, I’m not really a fashion person. fashion. We all just want to look good,” she says.
In recent weeks, Holmes has been spotted wearing an ivory suit with hot pink heels, a backless knit crop top with wide leg pants and a green raincoat with blue pants out on the town. But she tells BAZAAR that what she feels most comfortable in is an old t-shirt.
“I love my t-shirts and I love my vintage t-shirts. They’re so yummy. They’re a little dirty or a little stained or whatever, and that’s me,” said the Coda said the star.
It’s ironic, really, that the actress known for her sleek style – both on and off the red carpet – would rather hang out in a faded t-shirt, but comfort is comfort, and she says giving a long life to her clothes is very important to her. This doesn’t always mean wearing the same clothes over and over again, but most of the time it means reselling or giving them away, as well as buying used and vintage items.
“We don’t have a choice anymore,” she says of sustainability when shopping for clothes and supporting new brands. “We have to be smart and aware and do the right thing.”
Holmes has a personal collection of beloved vintage bags, but she says her most used these days is a Bottega Veneta. “I feel like it’s one of the brands whose pieces I always love because they’re so creative and chic. It feels like you’re wearing a museum piece. So fashion passes on another level,” she says.
