Is it just me or do these pants not fit Katie Holmes well?

You would think that with all her money that she could get a tailor. This makes me not feel so badly when I don't achieve the perfect fit

I find that a lot of celebrities look like high priced bag ladies (or call girls.) Sometimes on Red Carpet events you can even see fabric ripples on seem lines (meaning the fabric is slightly puckered because it wasn't feed evenly). At the price of some of those dresses you would think that they would use a walking foot or an IDT to make them.

Maybe it just looked puckered because the cleavage line ends slightly above the belly button. Such an awful look on any one.

I hope this isn't a design she created, that would be bad advertising.

Maybe they are old...looks like plenty of room in the abdomen...maybe a post pregnancy pair?

Poor thing! Maybe she should have taken the elevator down.

I partly blame that stupid super-stretchy fabric so many pants are made out of these days. Weird wrinkles are becoming pretty much the norm. Most people don't seem to even notice them.

When I saw the subject I just expected another too tight fit but these don't fit at all. Maybe she was at a sleepover and grabbed someone else's pants. There are so many skilled seamstresses and tailors that I don't understand why someone like this or Whoopie or Rosie would have clothing that just doesn't fit.

And have you noticed how often females in the media wear jackets so tight that the buttons strain and it makes stress wrinkles and pulls in the fabric. I don't understand the trend of wearing the jackets and blouses so taut. Try bouncing a quarter off of some of these and it will put your eye out on the rebound.

Lucky for me no one is taking my picture every day

I'm so glad you started this thread. I find myself watching what the local news people wear. We have a traffic lady on one of our stations that wears the best fitting clothes, as long as she stays away from leg hugging skirts. There is also an "on the spot" reporter that is always dressed to the nines. Her clothes fit very well. Then there are the co-anchors. Oh my! Lucky for them, they sit most of the newscast behind a desk. Jackets with twisting arms, and as 7yrstitch pointed out, the "much too tight" buttoned jacket. And who on earth dresses these men!???? I've never seen such combinations of suits, shirts and ties I was watching First Wives Club last night and noted Diane Keaton's high rise trousers.
