Katie Holmes's Geometric Braid Is Living In My Head Rent-Free
Katie Holmes, is that a nose ring? The Dawson's Creek star has always been known for her sleek, classic looks, but she's been having a style renaissance — and her latest appearance is the perfect example.
Holmes was recently on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon wearing a super-sleek, geometric, long braid, courtesy of stylist DJ Quintero, who often works with the star. (Quintero is also responsible for the baby bangs Holmes was seen wearing in late 2022.) Holmes's signature brunette hair was swept up from her face into two large sections: one at the top of her head and one at the base. Her hair was slicked down with gel for shine and control and fastened into a low ponytail at the nape of her neck, then braided down her back. The result was a chic, versatile braid that paired beautifully with her stylish gray suit and crisp white shirt. Joey Potter would be proud.
Makeup artist Genevieve Herr kept the makeup equally simple and elegant with sculpted bronze cheeks and a matching bronze eye, a touch of eyeliner and mascara, and a matte, light pink lipstick. And yes, that is a silver hoop nose ring — a fun addition to Holmes's minimalistic personal style and casual-chic vibe.
While she has always been a style and beauty standout in her own right, we really love when Holmes shakes things up a bit. In 2017, she made a splash when she chopped her hair into a pixie cut, and she's been known to step outside her minimal makeup comfort zone with false lashes and a berry red lip. Oh, and then there was that time she wore Adidas sneakers with a silky gown on the red carpet. No matter the decade, Holmes is a master of the element of surprise.
