I never thought I’d put the words Katie Holmes and ‘fashion week’ in the same sentence. It’s not that the former model does not have the body to pull off haute couture looks – far from it. However, after being hitched to TommyGirl for the past seven years, her clothes and look were more dowdy and tamed for a woman in her 20s. Now that she has released the sprite from her life, Katie is going back to her roots by debuting a new line at Fashion Week.
Joining the ranks of celebrity designers, Holmes and Yang (co-founder Yang is her personal stylist) will premiere in the tents during Fashion Week at Lincoln Center. Interesting to note is that Katie’s former fake friend, Victoria ‘Posh Spice’ Beckham, will also be in the tents as well with her own line, Grazia.
Let’s see if this line will be a success for a woman who has dressed like she was 40 since she was 27. One thing is for certain: there will be alot of publicity surrounding her debut. I, for one, am rooting for Katie. She certainly deserves a bit of success of her own after putting her movie career on hold to raise a Thetan.
And a child too!
