"I think you have to know the silhouettes that work for yourself and do things that are comfortable," Holmes, in a red lace Marchesa Notte dress with nude pumps, told Us Weekly at the Marchesa show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week on Wednesday, Feb. 12. "I always tend to go plain."

For the Bobbi Brown spokeswoman, 35, that usually translates to dresses with a natural waist, simple necklines, and solid colors. But that doesn't mean the Holmes & Yang designer doesn't take a fashion risk. "If I’m going to do a trend, then I’ll do that trend and pair it with something plain," Tom Cruise's ex-wife told Us. " I don’t do that trend from head to toe." Case in point: For the Donna Karan show, Holmes wore a sexy leather dress with an on-trend sheer skirt.

Also in the front row at the Marchesa show were Anna Kendrick, Sarah Paulson, and Tyra Banks.
