Katie Holmes raised eyebrows when she haphazardly hiked up the hemline of her floral Louis Vuitton frock for Variety’s Power of ­Women Luncheon in Beverly Hills Sept. 30.

“Bad choice,” ­Phillip Bloch, ­author of The Shopping Diet, sighed of Holmes’ wacky take on the designer dress. “The bottom looks like one person, and the top looks like ­another.”

It was an odd misstep for the stylish star, who loves clothes so much she ­started her own line, Holmes & Yang, with longtime ­stylist Jeanne Yang.

Holmes, 31, herself admits she shouldn’t DIY: “I’ve always loved fabrics . . . [but] I don’t sew very well,” she has said.

How to fix the floral ­fiasco?

“Adding the wider belt from the runway would have made it classier,” Bloch suggests. “Lose the tights, which are way too heavy for a soft, muted print.”

And as for the fact that it looks like a closet castoff from her ­fashionista daughter, Suri, 4?

It’s not too far-fetched: She’s Holmes’ top stylist! “She won’t let me leave unless I’m wearing what she wants,” Holmes has said of her tot. “And I want to make her happy!”
