Katie Holmes has had a number of dress changes while recording her new movie, ‘Watergate Girl,’ in New York City on May 3.
Katie Holmes, 42, stunned in not only one but two outfits while filming Watergate Girl in New York City on Monday, May 3.
Katie will be producing and acting in the 2020 memory film The Watergate Girl: My Fight for Truth and Justice Against Criminal President, written by attorney Jill-Wine Banks, who worked as a Watergate prosecutor in the early 70s.
To channel the style of the era, Katie began her work day in a retro outfit: a long dress with a Peter Pan collar covered in 70’s-esque mustard and black stripes. She completed the ensemble with bunched-up crew socks and loafers (well, Katie had on a plaid face mask on too, but we’re presuming that won’t be making it into the movie).
Later this Monday, Katie exchanged her striped dress for another look from the past: a long-sleeved dress with a pink floral pattern tucked into a black skirt, which was cinched at the waist with a black belt adorned with gold medallions.
It looked like we could imagine someone wearing it at Woodstock, which happened just a few years before the Watergate scandal. Some details on Katie’s dress, however, were a far cry from the groovy era of the infamous music festival: she also wore a paisley print face mask with Uggs.
Katie’s new movie is not just about the Watergate scandal. Dawson’s Creek star tells the story of a woman who was sexually discriminated against at her job, being only 30 years old when she was the only woman serving on the legal team that prosecuted those involved in the political scandal. In fact, press at the time dubbed Jill-Wine the “mini-skirted lawyer,” just to give you an idea of what she was dealing with at the time.
Not seen on the movie set that day was Katie’s boyfriend, restaurateur Emilio Vitolo Jr., 33, who she has been dating since September 2020. Things have “cooled off” between the couple who once enjoyed packing in a PDA all over the NYC.
“Katie has a lot of big priorities in her life — she’s a single mom. Her daughter [Suri Cruise, 15] always comes first and things were moving very fast,” a source told Page Six. Clearly, Katie’s new priority is filming this movie!
