Katie first with the shrunken jacket

01 September 2008


First she pretty much single-handedly launched the rolled-up-ankle boyfriend jeans look that is massive right now (check her out in the jeans special in tomorrow's Grazia to see what we're talking about). And now, Katie's the first A-lister we've spotted wearing the super shrunken leather jacket which is set to be the defining wardrobe staple for A/W 2008. Who'd have thunk it, little Katie Holmes a fashion innovator?  Weird, but true. Since moving to New York and stepping out of the shadow of her BFF (that's best fashion friend) Victoria Beckham, she has developed her very own, very cool fashion groove. She's ditched the mother-of-the-bride look and pulled together an urban hipsters look more appropriate for a successful Hollywood star. We have to hand it to Katie - she's got everything from her gamine haircut, to the cut of her jeans bang on. We're in the process of finding out where her jacket is from and we'll let you know when we do. A shrunken leather jacket is perfect for sharpening up a t-shirt and jeans, as KH has, or giving a structured evening dress an edge - so put one on your shopping list now!
