By Any Jeans Necessary: Katie Holmes was well aware the paparazzi would be lying in wait when she left her dance class, which means she knew this outfit would be photographed for posterity. Yet she saw no reason to slip into something a little less comfortable. Shortsightedness: 1. Katie: 0. Mrs. Tom Cruise crushes the last vestiges of her media-touted but evidence-light "fashion icon" status beneath the hairy-toe-creating fringe of her clunky gladiator sandals, which are just the peculiarly festooned tip of a very unsightly iceberg. Separately (or perhaps if worn by Suri), her cuffed denim shorts and button-down plaid shirt might seen fun and casual, but together, it's like Jennifer Grey from "Dirty Dancing" ditched easy listening and went grunge. Or, as Katie's stylist probably told her while trying to sell this more-misguided-than-"Mad Money 2" style concept: "Nobody puts Baby in a corner at a Nirvana concert."
