At tonight’s 2022 CFDA Awards in New York City, Katie Holmes walked the red carpet with New York designer (and friend) Jonathan Simkhai. Given the event is known as the “Oscars of fashion,” and honors excellence within the American fashion industry, Holmes had to dress the part. She chose a striking evening look designed by Simkhai that fully embraced glitz and glamour.
The dress’s long, tank-like silhouette and swishy crystal fringe at the hemline evoked the feel of a 1920s flapper dress—though it felt decidedly modern with a scoop neckline and all-over cage finish that subtly showed skin underneath. Even Holmes’s vampy dark red lip and slicked-back bun played into the throwback flapper feel. The whole look belongs in a 1920s speakeasy, possibly doing the Charleston. Though that may be a challenge to do in her fabulous sparkly heels.
