It really is a good morning, because Katie Holmes’ pretty pants just gave our wandering eyes something to daydream about.
On Wednesday, the Dawson’s Creek actress made a guest appearance on Good Morning America to spill all the details about her new off-Broadway play, The Wanderers. For the television interview, the actress dressed to impress in a $495 pair of satin pants from the New York-based brand Kallmeyer — and after the show, she changed into another pair of pants from the brand!
She styled the wide-leg champagne pants with a black shirt, matching black socks, and a white button-up shirt for the perfect sitting-down outfit. To equip her look with even more star power, she added some more shine with a pair of silver wedges.

Satin pants can be super attention-grabbing when styled with extra sparkles and colorful accessories. But when styled minimally with neutral colors and simple garments, they’re a fun addition to everyday looks, too. They’re also wearable in the summer when lighter colors are trending, during the holidays when everyone wants some extra glitz, and during those it’s still too cold for shorts, spring days.
When looking for a pair of office-friendly pants, it’s always a big plus when they’re cute. Still work-appropriate, these wide-leg pants from Anne Klein come in a taupe color that will blend in when presenting in front of the execs, but will also leave your keen-on-fashion co-workers smiling with pride. They also make for a great capsule wardrobe starter piece, and come in black as well.
Available in sizes 0 to 16, they have a high-rise fit, so that a too-tight waistband will no longer be a problem when sitting down.

Plus, Holmes isn’t the only celeb embracing this pant style. And Just Like That… Actress Sarah Jessica Parker wore a similar pair of satin pants back in October of last year. Hers were pink, but still had us all googly-eyed at their shiny sheen. Other stars like Anne Hathaway and Hilary Duff have also worn the soft, radiant material, but shied away from pants in favor of breezier midi skirts.
