Joey would love the sleek girl-next-door hair, but she’d also approve of Holmes’s fresh-faced makeup, especially the peachy color on her cheeks and lips and the black scoop-neck crochet gown. (Holmes also skipped the heels in favor of black ballet flats, which makes her even cooler in our eyes.) It’s the perfect balance of glammed-up celebrity and effortless chic, a tightrope that Holmes has been successfully walking since her earliest days in Hollywood.
The straight hair isn’t the only ’90s-inspired style we’ve seen on the actor as of late. Earlier in June, she did a full 180 with tousled Julia Roberts curls brushed over to one side, smoky eyes and glossy lips. She loves a well-timed beauty surprise, like an out-of-character red lip or edgy baby bangs. Holmes is the ultimate example of knowing what works for you but not being afraid to step out of your comfort zone.
