Katie Holmes failed miserably in selling me on this dress from her own Holmes & Yang line. While it looks like haphazardly chosen separates, this is actually a dress. I don't know what's worse: the awkward elastic-looking waistline or the top that was obviously uncomfortable (there are several photos of Katie Holmes trying to adjust it on the red carpet). There's also a fit problem that exposes her bra or whatever she's got going underneath.
Speaking of awkward, I can't recall Uma Thurman ever missing the mark so completely. Uma looks like she's heading to a Victorian Bar Mitzvah; I don't care that it's Lanvin. It's just bad, even on someone as tall and naturally elegant as Uma Thurman. Adding to this mess are the raw and unfinished neckline and too small a clutch that couldn't hold all of Uma's essentials and kept popping open.
