Katie Holmes's Ruffled Shirt Is the Sartorial Equivalent of Popping Champagne
This shirt is self-care.
Joe Biden supporters haven’t popped the celebratory champagne *just* yet, but Katie Holmes’s blouse is one step ahead of the game.
The actress and her chef boyfriend Emilio Vitolo Jr. stepped out in N.Y.C. on Thursday, matching in their go-to Evolvetogether face masks. Holmes wore a long brown leather Madga Butrym coat ($3,670; magdabutrym.com), cropped dark-wash jeans, flat black boots, and, the pièce de résistance: a ruffle-front white shirt from one of the actress’s favorite brands, Khaite ($680; net-a-porter.com).
This shirt is Seinfeld-inspired high-fashion. It’s the sartorial equivalent of popping champagne in your mid-century modern living room while Anderson Cooper compares Donald Trump to an "obese turtle in the sun.". It’s choosing to go to sleep at 10 p.m. on election night. It is, factually, self-care (though painting your nails or throwing on a sheet mask will not cost a fraction of this $680 blouse).
Congratulations to Katie and congratulations to this shirt.
