Anybody following Katie Holmes’s fashion game of late will have noticed she’s been sporting some seriously covetable looks: from the cashmere bra and cardigan combo that went viral back in August, to her ongoing, playful riffs on the “mom jeans” trend, the actress has been delivering hit after hit with her off-duty style.
It seems that even when getting dressed up for a night on the town, she doesn’t disappoint, either: just take the look she wore last night to the Rothy’s event in New York. In keeping with the ethos of the brand—their shoes are made primarily from recycled single-use plastic bottles—she opted for a designer who also puts sustainability first: Gabriela Hearst. She wore an ethereal two-tone slip dress in ivory and blush pink, based on a design from Hearst’s Spring 2020 collection and carried the brand’s popular Nina bag, giving the otherwise minimal look a more of-the-moment twist. The final touch? A classic black ballet flat, made from luxurious (and sustainable) merino wool as part of Rothy’s new Merino Collection.
In the picture she posted to Instagram of herself, Holmes also included a blazer shrugged over her shoulders: a neat styling trick for wearing slip dresses all the way through to fall. Captioning the snap “New York moment,” she managed to balance sleek, Manhattanite chic with sustainability credentials. A New York moment, indeed.
