You know how tricky it can be to manage a cocktail, plate of food and conversation while socializing at a fancy party? Well Katie Holmes and designer Zac Posen have come up with a genius solution: cup holder couture!
No, this is not an SNL sketch (which is too bad because it would make a great one). The Days and Nights actress looks like she could truly balance a martini on each of the "holders" poking out from her slim hips...which would at least give some purpose to the otherwise totally awkward design.
Minus the mini hip wings, this wine-colored frock is gorgeous on the brunette beauty. We love the off-the-shoulder cut and deep color. Yes, it's a bit dark for spring, but apparently New York is late to the warm weather game anyway.
But once we get to the waist, it's a little too edgy for our tastes, literally. The structured look around the sides is just not flattering, even if they can hide a glass of wine or some bar nuts. It makes the bottom half of the dress look like it's fit for a much wider woman!
Our bottom line: never add unnecessary inches around the hip or butt area, unless you really can sneak a drink in there to free up your hands for all those air hugs.
