Katie Holmes talks fashion, fame, and filming Rare Objects

Endearing screen star Katie Holmes is the latest star to sit down with WSJ. Magazine for its My Monday Morning series. The actress lets the outlet in on the BTS of her upcoming project Rare Objects; her third directorial venture. The film, which she also co-wrote and is starring in, follows two women who forge a friendship in a psychiatric facility. On her decision to enlist stylist Brie Welch for the costumes, she said: “I love the art of dressing and how you can tell a story with an outfit. Brie hadn’t done costumes on a film before, but she is a storyteller in the way she approaches her own style and her work on photo shoots.” Holmes, 44, also spoke about the infamous viral paparazzi shots from 2019—which undoubtedly put buzzy fashion brand Khaite on the global map. “I have no idea why that took off,” she said. “I’m not sure. I don’t know what a cashmere bra symbolized in terms of women going forward—or backward. I mean, did I burn it? Perhaps the cashmere bra should just have the credit go to its designers, as it was a step in a good direction for women to just have comfortable bras.”

Already helming a podcast, Shut Up Evan, Katz promised that the Substack will be an extension of that personal outlet, brimming with no shortage of niche references, celebrity hilarity, and, let’s hope, limitless usage of his favorite word: “lensed.” Fans can sign up for the various options and dig into the first installment here.
