Celebrity Style Guru: Katie Holmes
Are your everyday outfits more dressed up than dressed down? Do you have a closet full of frilly, little girl dresses—or have you already purchased a little boy's suit and tie set—with your due date still months away? Do you love retro styles from the 40s and 50s? A yes answer to any of these questions means you share the same tastes in maternity and kids clothes as Katie Holmes.
Holmes' style is classic Hollywood. While pregnant in 2006 with daughter Suri, her maternity look was soft, feminine, and very put together. Photos of the pregnant Dawson's Creek star show she favored silky maternity tops and empire-waist dresses in cream colors and jewel tones. Holmes usually paired outfits with timeless—and comfortable—ballet flats. Now Mrs. Tom Cruise makes sure her daughter's style matches her own.
Classic Mother Pregnancy Tip: Holmes completed her flawless maternity style with expertly applied makeup. To copy Holmes' glow, Suzanne Cooper, an esthetician from Manalapan, New Jersey, suggests going easy on the foundation, explaining that because pregnancy hormones make skin more sensitive and break-out prone, over-applied liquid or powder foundation can clog pores and cause blackheads. Instead, exfoliate and moisturize skin, using eyeliner and mascara to play up eyes and a soft, shimmery shade of lipstick to emphasize the mouth.
