“She [Katie] offered coffee, made tea upon request, and invited everyone to take off their shoes if they liked — she already had. ‘Mine hurt,’ she said, acknowledging her stocking feet — navy tights that matched her dusty blue plaid dress from this season’s Holmes & Yang line,” according to WWD.

@V: Copy that.

Why is that farce of a “fashion line” still hanging on?? It’s expensive, cheap-looking, and fails to flatter even if the stick-thin models who wear it.

So, so sick of people without talent getting chances and publicity that they so clearly do not deserve.

Ohmigod–this is one of the ugliest fashion lines ever. Who would wear any of this let alone pay the prices they charge. The evening wear looks cheap like it came from Fredericks (without the deep V’s), the plaid/peplum looks eye watering ugly. And the suede camel pants and that orange blouse–well the 50′s fashion went out over 60 years ago and why H/Y wanted to bring it back is beyond thought. Truly ugly and uninspired.

They were not invited to “fashion week”….hence “the private party” LOL. She is TALENTLESS and living off Tommy. what a user her and her family are.

She’s looking a lot better than she was for a while.

Katie looks pathetic and boring as always.She has no job,and tacky “fashion lines” aren’t exactly jobs…any futile and fake celebrity can pretend to have one,the only thing they have to do is sign a contract,go home,relax and wait for the others to do everything for them.She’s living off Suri’s child support.She’s talentless,ugly and boring.

“How to when buyers and influence fashion blogs – H & Y Gems”

Fashion is known for it’s fickleness, so if you have nothing new to add and want a presence (no matter how insignificant) set the stage and limit your audience (also, keep your fingers cross that no one notices or at least mentions it).

1. Presentation -” luxurious surroundings, a big comfy couch, Gershwin tunes on the sound system, a commanding view of Midtown and a plate of six deli muffins on a coffee table between us.”

2. Compliment [Kiss @$$] – “How do you all do it?” Ms. Yang asks, clearly awed by our presence. “Thank you so much for coming.”

3. Be Exclusive [Kiss some more @$$ and B!tch smack others - i.e., bloggers] – “We wanted to meet with a group of real journalists,” Ms. Yang said. “You approach fashion with a cerebral voice.” [cerebral? I CAN'T STOP LAUGHING - side cramp!]

Well it worked for one editor [Eric Wilson, NYT], who last year said, “Really, We’re Just Here to See Katie” (http://runway.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/12/really-were-just-here-to-see-katie/?ref=fashion), but this year got a taste of the compliments (kiss @ss) and exclusiveness [e.g., Gershwin, muffins and coffee] and then declares, “But I would rather be superficial and tell you about the clothes, for they are perfectly valid, and the nice thing about Holmes & Yang is that they do not, and should not, require a lot of thought.” (http://runway.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/02/07/deep-thoughts-on-holmes-yang/)

“Not a lot of thought” you say…hmmm, well maybe H & Y still has work to do before Mr. Wilson is fully on board with the H & Y motto – “Our goal is to …” Ms. Yang began. And Ms. Holmes picked up, “… to make high-quality pieces that are simple enough, you can wear over and over again.”

“Over and over again”?– sounds like a bad nightmare [-insert- Freddy Krueger]

And then there’s -”There’s No Dressing Up a Bland Start” from another writeup by the NYT (this time by CATHY HORYN)

“I was struck by a comment from Jeanne Yang, the stylist who designs Holmes & Yang with the actress Katie Holmes: “Our clothing is quiet.”Although the collection included four evening dresses that were notably well done in their simplicity, this kind of “quiet” fashion ends up resisting evolution. And I suspect the consumer knows that.”

NYFW 2012 – FAIL
NYFW 2013 – FAIL

NEXT —->”Untitled Christian Camargo Project” – late March early April showing? –

***Here are a few gems from some of those fashion bloggers arrows from that “cerebral” slight.

“Hmmmmm, so we’re sure the world would like to see a list of who is considered a “real journalist” these days. [fashionfoiegras.com]”

“Yesterday, Katie Holmes and Jeanne Yang invited very select press to come see their new collection on the 43rd floor of the New York Palace Hotel, including the Times’ Eric Wilson, who found the shirtdresses “frankly darling.” But why be so hush-hush about it all? “We wanted to meet with a group of real journalists,” Ms. Yang said. “You approach fashion with a cerebral voice.” Oh, that’s why we weren’t invited.

Ouch! another foot-in-mouth episode for K-FLOP [via H & Y]

KEEP WINNING THOSE SUPPORTERS K-FLOP

@dani: I know….I cannot believe the prices. IF I could afford such prices, I would NEVER buy that crap.

@K-FLOP™ – ADMIT – CV ONLY!:

Correction – “How to when buyers and influence fashion blogs – H & Y Gems” —->>>“How to WIN buyers and influence fashion blogs – H & Y Gems”

I wasn’t typing with my “Cerebral Voice” — [:-P]

…I’m still laughing at that….permanent cramp in my side now…Wow! That K-FLOP [via Yang] comes up with some good ones, no?

KH needs to move back to Ohio….she is not NYC, never will be no matter how many projects she “tries”. She may do ok on a lame TV show ……people seem to love Dawson’s Creek and cannot get over her role on that show. She is not Hollywood material. She’s cute at best and pushing 35…..how long can you stay “cute” before everyone that has power thinks you’re a big joke?

There’s an interesting full-length write up in Women’s Wear Daily, reviewing the collection, and some of the conversations between H&Y and the journalists. One of Katie’s lines was that their collection was influenced by Katherine Hepburn, looks of the 40s and Donna Karan. UH, yeah. If that were the case, where were the accented shoulders of Hepburn, and the full-legged slacks. Donna Karan’s aesthetics are her own, and unique to her.

If you look at full size pictures of the H&Y collection, what you do see is some poor tailoring, uneven hems, two plaids that would not even work for parochial school uniforms.

Finally, for Katie to remove her shoes shows a lack of manners while meeting with serious journalists.

I bet some of the journalists needed a stiff drink after the presentation.

@Josephine: If it weren’t for Tommy’s child support, she’d be back in Ohio with her child living with her scheming and conniving parents.

that Yang woman looks and sounds like a byotch……she doesn’t know how to sell and neither does Holmes. I mean…..they need SERIOUS selling and marketing skills to unload that horrid clothing line.

@Susie#1:

Can you picture Audrey Hepburn wearing any of this drivel???

@Dani: No, and not Katherine Hepburn, either. I also don’t see influences from the 40s. Oh well – waste of material.

Katie is beautiful, talented and will be successful. To the bunch of ugly and jealous of this site some advice: go fix what to do and a boyfriend.

First of all, if her shoes were black and not light brown, this outfit would be perfect. Second, she might be lacking in talent, but you could still be happy for her in her personal life, you know? She looks so much better and happier compared to when she was with Tom. Why all the hate? She just got her life back together, cut her some slack people. And I am no Katie Holmes fan by any means.

@Susie#1:

Sorry I meant Katherine, but was thinking of Audrey in capris, but couldn’t imagine her in those camel ones.

She put on a great act for Tommy and the rest of the Scientology crew….she knew what she wanted and she got it. She’s dumb like a fox. And her parents were behind her 100% of the way. Now she is on her own and the only gigs she can muster are a few modeling jobs…..and walking around NYC with her kid eating cupcakes and ice cream. That is what she does best….with that smirky, sickening smile that doesn’t work anymore. What a joke she is. She should look into some lame TV show playing a single mother…..how much you want to bet that will be her next gig?????? Or a Dawson’s Creek reunion….that ought to cover her Whole Foods bill for awhile. Actually Tommy isn’t any different from any other man except for the Scientology bologna….most men want control of their wives. I can see her listening to advice from everyone….everyone in show business that are successful and have power….and in the end she does what she wants because she believes herself that she is talented and very special. All her endeavors have been unsuccessful so far.

I disagree with you. For everything I’ve read, Tom Cruise is a “man” 100% selfish, narcissistic and people around you are pawns on his chessboard of chadrez. I recognize that Katie was not naive, wanted to leverage his career as well, as Nicole, Penelope, and all others. Innocent in this whole mess only the children who were used by opportunists.:
