Take yourself back to the autumn of 2019, when Katie Holmes broke the internet by casually hailing a cab in SoHo, clad in a chic barley-hued cashmere bra and cardigan set from Khaite.
Paired with straight-leg jeans and sleek black open-toe sandals, her ensemble marked a significant shift in fashion. Now, Holmes makes another bra-first statement, this time courtesy of a prestigious Parisian fashion house.
At a Chanel dinner to celebrate its Fifth Avenue watches and fine jewelry flagship, Holmes wore, well, head-to-toe Chanel. Her outfit included a navy cashmere cardigan with utilitarian pocket details with matching louche trousers in the same butter-soft fabric. Underneath her cardi, a lacy black bra peeked through. Accessories included a striking diamond necklace, diamond earrings, a black leather quilted shoulder bag, and black and white ankle-strap pumps.
While the trend for exposed bras has resurfaced in recent months, with celebrities like Emma Watson, Emily Ratajkowksi and Sharon Stone embracing the peekaboo style, it was the Dawson’s Creek actor who initially propelled the look to fame with her daring cashmere look.
It’s thrilling to see Katie Holmes has returned to her cozy, yet super chic styling hack in the most luscious of Chanel pieces.
