Best Emmy skin: Katie Holmes

When TIFF was winding last week and several of us sat around comparing notes and gossiping, as we always do after the festival, a few minutes of the conversation was devoted to a certain actress who looked spectacular in photographs, wearing what was truly an inspired dress, but who actually has a serious skin problem which you can see up close. It’s a massive layer of foundation covering her forehead and even then, the bumps underneath are quite noticeable.

Some things won’t go away even if you keep throwing money at them. And you’d be surprised, given how perfect they look so much of the time, how often UN-perfect they really are. You think they all have skin like Katie Holmes. They don’t.

Katie Holmes has extraordinary skin. And hair. I liked the messy bun. I liked the clean lines of her Calvin Klein. I know some of you thought it was a little too casual, and I don’t disagree that this may have been more appropriate for something like the Spirit Awards, but this wasn’t her night, and when it’s not your night, if you’re going to go to any extreme, better the one that doesn’t scream “ME I’M THE STAR OF THE SHOW”. It’s a foreign concept for many people in her business.
