It’s rare to see Katie Holmes model statement jewellery. The star is a Jennifer Fisher hoops and Missoma chain necklace kind of woman. But Katie was seemingly in magpie mode for an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, sporting ginormous gold earrings from Elizabeth Hooper – and a smaller diamond-encrusted hoop from Rainbow K – that weighed her ears down. The sculptural creations elevated her peaked-lapel blazer, white shirt, fringed skirt (all Michael Kors Collection) and black tights, which were a far cry from the easy denim and swaddling outerwear she wears on a daily basis.
The outfit – specifically the mega jewellery and semi-sheer black tights – nodded to the ’80s maximalism that’s trending right now. From Hailey Bieber in gilded Schiaparelli to the excessive gems Rihanna champions regularly (although for her it’s a lifestyle, not a trend), the bolder the better.
As Katie knows, the right jewellery can make a powerful statement, but sometimes, it’s best to wear none at all. She’s a woman who can do both.
