Katie Holmes won’t ever let go of her prom dress from 1997.
The Dawson’s Creek actress is known for her chic yet relaxed aesthetic, famously pulling off a Khaite cashmere bra and cardigan last August.
But when it comes to her favourite outfits, Katie admitted in an interview for the April 2020 issue of U.S. InStyle magazine that she still loves the “grunge” look she wore to her senior dance in the late 1990s.
“I went through this phase as a kid where I changed my clothes 10 times a day. I think I drove my mother crazy,” she shared of experimenting with fashion while growing up in Ohio. “But I loved my prom dress senior year. It was a long gold lace dress from Cache, that store in the mall. This was 1997, so it was grunge time. Was I cool enough to wear my dress with Doc Martens? No, I wasn’t. Did I want to? Yes, I did. I still have it in a storage unit.”
Elsewhere in the chat, Katie opened up about how she incorporates self-care into her daily routine. She’s a big fan of dance and boxing classes, as well as hot yoga, and since turning 41 in December, has put more effort into her skincare regime.
“I’m basically always putting lotion on,” the star laughed. “I do all that Dr. Barbara Sturm stuff: hyaluronic, face brightening, face cream, skin cream. It’s so vain. But that happens. It kind of hits you…. I used to get away with no make-up. When I was a teenager and a young actress, it was about being sort of grungy. Now I’m like, ‘Oh god, I have to do stuff!’ It sounds so superficial.”
