I'm probably in the minority here, but i absolutely adored everything Katie Holmes wore as she headed in and out of the theatre doors to a paparazzi choca-block. Her distressed baggy jeans by PRPS Jeans with a starting price of $300, were ridiculed because they brought back the 80's peg-leg look.
I prefer Katie smartened up in her high-waisted, wide leg, J-Brand jeans with a casual t-shirt, cardigan and sky-high heels or skinny jeans with a well fitted blazer and metallic coated ballet flats.
Although her looks were kept simple, her handbags were top notch. The first photo shows Katie Holmes carrying around a Chloe Python Paratay bag which has also been seen on Mary-Kate Olsen. She has also been seen toting around a tan YSL Muse 2 bag, Hermes Kelly bag and Giorgio Armani oversized crocodile tote.
She has also been seen numerous times wearing the a crazy amount of high end sunglasses. She has been seen in Michael Kors 526 Crocodile sunglasses in dark navy (4th picture), also seen on Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba and Jennifer Garner. Other sunglasses seen on Katie include Oliver Peoples Sofiane round sunglasses in Red Passion (3rd picture) and a few buckle temple classics by Roger Vivier (1st & 5th pic).
You may not agree, but all in all, she was understated and fabulous.
