Katie Holmes has been a fan-favourite in the spotlight since her teen years and we’ve watched her flourish from rocking tomboy chic on the red carpet to the style icon she is today. From her days on Dawson’s Creek, to her peak years with Tom Cruise and her life post-divorce, Holmes has definitely had many milestones of her life showcased for the world to see, and along with that comes plenty of of fashion hits and misses. Despite her many life chapters, Holmes’ core style seems to have remained quite consistent and often features clean lines, bold colours and simplistic detailing. The star constantly exudes elegance and focuses much of her attention on extravagant smokey eyes and bright lips rather than highly embellished dresses. Holmes is so naturally stunning that she doesn’t need excessive adornment to look chic and polished. Watch Holmes transform from the casual girl-next-door to a style connoisseur as we track her fashion evolution starting back in 2002.
MTV Movie Awards — 2002
During her Dawson’s Creek days, Katie Holmes was the ultimate girl-next-door as she took to the screen as Joey Potter. The star was just 19-years-old when she first starred on this hit series and her youthfulness is clear in her decision to opt for casual boot-cut jeans at the MTV movie awards in 2002. Despite the laid-back vibe of the low rise jeans paired with a basic black T-shirt and simple chain necklace, Holmes still looks gorgeous and confident posing at one of her first Hollywood events.
