Each year, the Grammy Awards gives the fashion world a little extra boost of inspo. Right in the heart of events season, the night never fails to bring out some of the boldest and most noteworthy looks of the year. Last night, at the 2018 Grammys, many of the stars in attendance gave fans plenty to work with from a style perspective — how about Lady Gaga’s wings? — but one star stopped the show with a very subtle but highly statement-making look. We’re talking about Katie Holmes‘ grey roots.
The 39-year-old actress, who took to the stage at the Grammys as a presenter, stepped out in a dark, sleek, strapless gown by designer Zac Posen, with smoky gold and berry-hued eyes, diamond and emerald-encrusted teardrop earrings and a 1920s-style pixie cut that looked seriously stunning in combination. But the highlight of the look was the subtle but noticeable presence of grey in her ’do.
Yassss! There’s something so empowering about stars who are willing to embrace a bit of grey. And before the age of 40, too!
Holmes was also spotted earlier on in the night on the arm of her dapper beau, Jamie Foxx, at the Pre-Grammys Award Gala. The couple who have been allegedly dating for several years rarely appear in public together, but looked like the very picture of a happy couple at the event last night. There, Holmes donned a red gown with a similarly sleek bob up top.
This isn’t the first time the actress has let the world see what she’s really made of. There’s proof of Holmes’ OK-ness with the greyness as far back as 2011. Here she is looking her regular, glowing self, complete with a few strands of shining grey, at an Armani fashion in 2011.
Holmes may not be alone in this crusade against peoples’ problem with the silver sprigs — other stars such as Kate Middleton and Chrissy Teigen have famously been photographed with a bit of grey showing at the roots in the past, while the likes of Kelly Osbourne have gone full-blown silver fox early on, completely on purpose — but to let her roots shine at one of the most-watched awards shows of the year was still undoubtedly bold. Bold in the best possible way.
