Katie Holmes was a fashionista in full-force in the early years of the TomKat whirlwind romance. In the last few years, the actress has seemed like she’s deathly tired of the media attention. To ward off press attention and paparazzi hound dogs, the young mom stopped stepping out looking like a million bucks.
It seemed like she just wanted to blend in and be left alone. Now and then however, she’s spotted carrying a cool bag or wearing interesting shoes. Bags seem to be more of her thing though. (She’s been spotted wearing the same boots all of last season, shockingly.)
This bag has two flaps and creates the funny illusion that the viewer’s vision has doubled. The optical trick makes you look at it more intensely, a cooler way of getting someone to notice your bag than having a logo plastered on it. This quirky design shows that the bag isn’t just a run of the mill mass-produced item, it was designed by someone who puts thought and creativity into their work.
Even though Katie looks like a miffed superstar with her oversized sunglasses, cold steely glare and designer bag, she’s traveling on New York’s subway like an ordinary commoner just like the rest of us. Seems like a woman who is grounded, down to earth, highly fashionable but very weary of the media scrutiny, even though some speculate she engineers her life to keep public interest growing. What do you make of this leading lady and her complicated yet intriguing life and fashion sense?
