MILAN--So yes. Katie Holmes sat front row at Max Mara this morning. So did the New Yorker's David Remnick. Why was he there? Well, who really knows. It could have something to do with advertising. It could have something to do with a friend. It could have something to do with neither of those things.
But really, it was a good show for a high brow journalist to take in. Remnick surely imagines New Yorker readers wearing this kind of ultra-luxe, ultra-discreet clothing. (Sigh. We all have our ideal reader....) But I didn't have too much time to ponder what he was thinking, given the desirability of the looks being presented on the runway.
I immediately began plotting a path to Rich Ladydom, where I could buy the grey flanel coat with a fur panel, the camel blazer, and the blush fur dress coat without maxing out my credit card. These are clothes made to make you feel good. Cozy pieces that you won't think ill of next season. If only I had David's brains...and Katie's bank account, I'd be smart and invest in a few items from Max Mara Fall 2011.
