Can Anyone Else See The Resemblance?


I have spoken recently about how Katie Holmes has been inspired by Victoria Beckham.

Looking at Victoria's Harper's Baazar US editorial, it has an uncanny resemblance to Katie Holmes' Harper's Bazaar shoot which took place last year, which was also shot by photographer Peter Lindbergh and styled by Victoria Beckham herself.




Your thoughts please.

... What. The last three pictures look NOTHING alike.
THe white ball gown victoria is wearing versus the black ruffley dress katie is wearing?
the suits are the only resemblence. but the way they are styled makes it very different

Steph said...

I do see a resemblance as well. But then since Victoria styled that photoshoot, it doesn't come across as suprising as she'd have probably picked tips on how to pose with certain outfits and all that...I guess coupled with the same photographer even creates room for more similarities.

Lind said...

I don't see the problem when she was the stylist for the Katie Holmes shoot anyway, so it's her ideas in both!

Janie said...

Mmmmm very interesting.
Doesn't Katie's hair look so much prettier long?

DVB said...

Susan, you did not understand the post.

I am not saying they are the same. I am saying the styling resembles each other.

Yes one dress is black and the other is white, but look beyond that and it is clear -to me- the styling is the same, which is not surprising considering Victoria Beckham styled Katie's shoot.

lilli said...

I totally agree with you dvb. The style is very similar.

Karolinka.cy said...

Similar or not but Victoria looks so much better than Katie, it's not about pretier or sth, she just look more glamour!

dvb... I haven't log on here for a very long time. :P and I just read all post I miss... Seriously, I don't know what the deal is with these two. There are a LOT of resemblance when it comes to their choice of clothing. I'm actually a bit shocked when I saw a glimpse of Katie and Tom's sexy photoshoot which is awfully similar to how David and Victoria always do.

Victoria was a stylist for Katie on that photoshoot, she had nothing to do with the pictures or the posing. The dresses are nowhere near the same or similiar, the style of the photoshoot is though, so i think we should blame the photographer, as he's obviously not too inovative.

Meg said...

I think it suggests Vic had input in styling her Bazaar shoot. It's basically the same setting so it's natural she'd do some things similar to what she might have suggested to Katie.

What can I say, Mrs. Victoria Beckham has got great style! Both shoots are very similar and both fabulous! Katie should hang around her more often, she looked her best when she did. Now without Victoria, not so great.

DVB said...

I thought a stylist was also involved in the poses and wardrobe.

So I guess like you say Electra, it was just lack of innovation by the photographer.

Sara said...

I dont see it at all, as anyone who buys Bazaar regulary knows that its their usual forumla for celeb spreads, they are all done the same way basically, and as evident here, its the same setting (at Malibu beach)and completly different clothes, how is that D&G dress similar to the black one Katie has on is beyond me!

I think you were a bit to overzealous with this one.

DVB said...

Sara, if you don't agree that is fine, but to call me overzealous is just not necessary.

I do try to update this blog regularly and make it interesting with posts that spark debates.

If you go on other VB sites, all they do is talk about her clothes, but I try to give more.

There was a time when I was very busy and I was told off for not updating this blog regularly, now I have got back into the swing of blogging again, you now tell basically tell me that I should not have added this post.

I just can not win.

I really think for someone to crtize DVB but still go to your blog says something about them. It is similar you can't deny that, all DVB is doing is bringing what she saw to the attention on people that go to the blog. If you don't like it and you feel you need to comment negativley then why are you still on the blog? Its similar in the way that there is a suit a form fitting dress and a gown type dress and then the frilly white one. Of course its not the EXACT same! Did DVB say it was the exact replica? No. It makes sense if victoria styled Kate for there to be a similar tone with both. DVB was asking comment on the shoot not for you to comment on herself. Im sorry but I find it very rude that you would call some one overzealous that is writing this blog just to share with You the reader because she likes to, and then to comment on her character is a bit rude.

Sara said...

This is just Harper's Bazaar's formula for shoots. A lot of their celeb editorials are similar to this with a similar setting.

DVB said...

Thanks Nikki.

At least you get what I was trying to do here.

ayuni said...

gotta agree with u DVB. the style is similar.

btw, dont let some comment bring u down yeah?
i really love this blog. =)

Glam Beckhams Foro said...

everyone can lie on a couch and pose,there are thousand of pix like that, also million models posing with their arms like that, etc, etc. i dont see any resemblance in the photos. But i always find Katie wears a similar outfit than VB did. she's such a copycat. cant stand her.

Kiki Kiari said...

I agree with Nikki there. I loved the fact that you noticed some little stuff that people always miss.

I dunno.. If it's concerning other celebrities, I don't really found it weird, but the similarities are always there when it comes to Katie. It seems to me that Katie's appearance nowadays is influenced by Victoria, then again, the post you just posted, DVB is indicating that Katie did the photo shoot first, eh? This is just so weird... Did Victoria really styled herself there? Maybe other celebrities have had same kinda style applied to them as these two...

krisha said...

regardless, i think Katie Holmes looks a lot better in the tux than victoria, more relaxed and less posed.
