Latest Obsession: Katie Holmes Rehearsals

As she headed to rehearsals for her latest Broadway play All My Sons by Arthur Miller, Katie Holmes was under the watchful eye of many fashion critics. Many Anti-Scientologists ripped into her about her dress sense, way of life and style transformation.

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.

Girl put your Beanie on!

No longer reserved for family trips to the snow, the beanie is new cool kid in the hat department. The look which sprung off the well groomed heads of Paris and Milan fashion week attendees, saw it make its way on many catwalks, promininetly that of Alexander Wang.

Rachel Bilson has adopted the look by wearing her simple black beanie with a loose white tank, Chanel chain handbag, gold sandals and the celebirity favourite, Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses in tortoise shell.
Nicole Richie also looked super darn cool as she headed to Beverly Glen Country Mart for ice-cream with her man's brother, Benji Madden. She was L.A personified in her downtown city style.
Miss Richie wore distressed looking frayed 'Nicollette' shorts by Abercrombie and Fitch, teamed with a grey American Apparel t-shirt, laid back haviana flip flops and a studded vintage style belt. As with her fashion equal, Rachel Bilson, she too opted for Ray Ban sunglasses. Nicole Richie wears Ray Ban Large Metal Aviators. This is a look that is definitely going to be a staple for me this spring/summer in Australia.

Tie Dye, not dying down

The catwalks advocated and the celebrities reciprocated by wearing this seasons essential tie dye trend.
Tie dye has been flooding the floors of all our favourite high street stores and has become a summer staple. It's 60's, it's carefree and oh so cool.
Many stars have been seen rocking including Fergie, Mischa Barton, Rachel Bilson and even Miss Sensibility Hayden Pannettiere got in on the trend and wore a loose lavender tank.

But as always, Nicole Richie made casual look captivating. As she strolled through New York City with baby Harlow, she wore a black, salmon, grey combination tank top with Abercrombie and Fitch 'Nicolette' distressed frayed denim shorts and classic Ray Ban Large Metal II RB 3026 gold frame sunglasses. The plaited belt and hair added to the hippie vibe. But nothing beats a chilled Starbucks and a gorgeous baby!

Victoria & David Flash their Excess!

Victoria Beckham flashed her money during her son's soccer game this week. She dressed to the nine and halves in a Prada print dress, classic Orange Hermes Birkin bag, DvB sunglasses and Jimmy Choo high heel sandals.
Her outfit gave me instant deja-vu to late 2007, when Victoria wore the exact same outfit as she headed out of Heathrow Airport with her Spice Girl pal Melanie Brown.

While Victoria was flashing her designer goods in one direction, David Beckham showed off his $600,000 Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead coupe, as he picked his children up from school. He was also escorted by two security vehicle. Ahhh to be a Beckham!

Catwoman Returns!

Halle Berry may have turned a dozen pubescent boys heads in her leather-clad portrayal of Catwoman, but the real life catwoman turned heads for all the wrong reasons this week.

Jocelyn Wildenstein, dubbed catwoman for her extensive plastic surgery to resemble a "wildcat", was seen out having lunch with her fashion designer boyfriend Lloyd Klein. Jocelyn has become the poster child of 'plastic surgery gone too far'.

During her marriage to the late Billionaire Alec Wildenstein, Jocelyn feared that her husband was losing interest in her, thus she underwent cosmetic surgery in order to reignite his passion for her. She surgically enhanced her facial features to resemble the cats of the wild with the knowledge that her husband was an avid feline enthusiast.

Her husband naturally shrieked in horror when he saw her face, (wouldn't be surprised if her face were the cause of death)...

With Jocelyn's knowledge, would it not have been more sensible to take her husband on an African Safari as opposed to modelling your face after a cat? Just saying...
