Katie Holmes has come a long way since the days of playing fresh faced Joey Potter on Dawson’s Creek. Mother to possibly one of the most talked about Hollywood children Suri, and married to high profile actor Tom Cruise, Katie is certainly earning her style stripes of late.
Since her friendships with Victoria Beckham and Giorgio Armani have blossomed, the fashion world has sat up and taken notice of the woman who looks as at home gracing the pages of a glossy draped in couture, as she does going about her life as a busy working mum. If she gets a new haircut we need to know about it, if she’s spotted out and about, we want to know what she’s wearing.
With her recent portrayal of one the most well known and revered style icons, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and the launch of her own label, Holmes & Yang in conjunction with stylist and friend Jeanne Yang, Katie’s fashion star is definitely in the ascendant.
Her own effortless glamour never fails to please here at Upper Street and aiming to create an element of “luxury quality” in her new label, two words very dear to us, Katie makes our fashion hearts pitter-patter that little bit more.
Working city chic in navy with accents of red, Katie’s look here is beautifully effortless. Set your own style tone by opting for red suede platform peep toes with a navy counter back and heel for a simple but stand out design… and wear with everything.
Capturing the timeless elegance of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in the recent mini series, Katie is a vision in that iconic pink and black suit. Pay tribute to this first lady of style with a retro-chic inspired pair of pink satin d’Orsay courts finished with a contrasting black patent heel and bow. Ladylike glamour at it’s very best.
Not only is Katie our kind of girl, she’s a jeans and heels girl. Wear this season’s uber 70′s trend must-have, the flared jean, with a pair of sexy snake strappy sandals. Add sunnies and a simple shirt and you’re chic personified.
If like Katie you can end up towering over your man when you add high heels into the mix, don’t forget that when you design your perfect Upper Street shoe, you can select the lower heel and platform option at the checkout.
Upper Street shoes come in a huge range of sizes from the petite 33 (UK 1.5) to the generous 43 (UK 10) with 4 width fittings. We also offer free alterations to fit and we’re so confident that you’ll love your final design that we’ll refund you if you don’t!
