Way Too Much Attention Is Being Paid to Katie’s Jeans

… and I’m part of the problem. Hear me out: Katie Holmes has a promotional genius behind her, whipping up a frenzy all on account of some silly denim. How much coverage has she managed to finagle simply because of a fugly pair of jeans? Or, more accurately, Tom’s fugly pair of jeans:

“Katie Holmes hasn’t just been wearing men’s jeans on recent NYC outings – she’s wearing husband Tom Cruise’s jeans!

‘It’s the new look Katie is going for,’ a source tells Us. A reason Holmes has been rolling them up? She’s 5′9″ and Cruise is 5′7″.”

Well, at least there was some change yesterday– uncuffed, baby!
