Katie Holmes Just Explained This Viral Cashmere Bra Moment
In August 2019, Katie Holmes’ outfit of the day went totally viral. Who can forget the matching bra and cashmere sweater she was photographed wearing on her day out in New York?
It was pure luxury, but there was also a sexy edge to the look thanks to the way the loose sweater hung off her shoulder. The internet went wild for it, but given how private Holmes is, we thought we’d never know what she was thinking when she got dressed that morning. Thanks to a new interview with InStyle to promote their new movie The Secret: Dare to Dream, we finally have answers to all of our burning cashmere bra questions.
Asked about the fashion moment she’s having right now, Holmes jokingly told the magazine, “I’ve been in this business for a while. We both know you have your ups and downs. It was a really exciting time because of the cashmere bra.
But when asked why she chose this $520 Khaite bra and $1,540 sweater combo (which sold out quickly after wearing it), Holmes had a pretty apt answer. “Honestly, I didn’t feel so sexy. And I saw this and I was like, Sexy. I can do this! I thought it would be nice if I was in a cabana sitting by the fire and that I wore [matching] sweater over it,” she said. “That’s how my brain works. But then I was like, Oh wait, I’m not in a cabin, and I’m not going to a cabin. I still thought I could pull it off, though. I had noticed other people wearing bras with blazers.
As for the perfect positioning of the sweater? We can blame Katie Holmes’ daughter, Suri, for that. “I didn’t want to get in trouble with my teenager!” We were running errands at school and I was just trying to hail a cab on Sixth Avenue,” she said with a laugh. “It looked way more glamorous than it was.”
