Does Katie Holmes’ Post Break-Up Makeover Make Her Look Cheap?

Liz Jones thinks Katie Holmes is looking too nice.

The Daily Mail Columnist declares:

Classic, isn’t it? Katie Holmes files for divorce and abandons her uniform of the past few years — awful mummy jeans, no make-up and ballet pumps — and slips into a pair of high heels, tossing her newly conker-shiny hair over her aerobicised, milky shoulder. When your marriage breaks up, you are supposed to look dreadful, to mourn. You need time when you are not putting yourself out there in order to reflect and learn…To hurry into heels is disrespectful, I think, to what you had together; to what you might have in the future.

Huh? Well, look, I believe I recognize that dress Katie Holmes is wearing. It is Prada, and it’s two years old. So, Katie probably didn’t rush out to buy it right now as a result of her marriage being in shambles. Also, her hair is in a pony tail. She is not strolling through the streets in bandage dress and a blow-out. I think she looks pretty appropriate. And, honestly, after break-ups my first reaction is usually to put on my favorite dresses so that I feel pretty, and as though I was not dumped because I am a hideous troll monster. Do you dress up after ending relationships? Do you agree that it’s disrespectful? I mean, Katie Holmes might just have needed to go someplace nice that night. It seems like we do not really lead lives that allow us to go into mourning for a pro-longed period, because we do not live in the Victorian age.
I think she looks great, okay? Team Katie!

      Wow, her hair is so shiny that from the thumbnail I thought she had gone way overboard and jumped on the old lady hair that was a thing for a while.

      I think Katie has every right to dress up, especially in high heels. After all, I doubt that she was doing much heel-wearing when she was with Tom.

      I agree, the DM column doesn’t make much sense. I will say that I thought she looked really great until I scrolled down to those heels. They are truly fug. And call me crazy, but I never thought she dressed THAT bad these past few years. Shrug.

      Mourning!? He didn’t die, she was divorced. Breakups are the moment to look your prettiest.

      “To hurry into heels is disrespectful”? To what, the flats industry, which clearly thrives on divorces? Girl looks like Kate Middleton, she’s fine…

      She’s finally able to wear heels now because she doesn’t have to worry about towering over her tiny husband.

      She is a celebrity, so while some of us may choose to wallow in sweats for exactly one half of the length of our relationship, she may not have a choice. And I’m with Jennifer Wright on this…after a break up I usually go all out, make up, get my hair done, find a dress that makes me feel good, which in turn makes me feel good.
