J.Crew News: The Romantics Cast Hearts J.Crew!

"Thanks!" to many of you, including Lisa, as well as jcrewmommy & AppGal (in this post), who let us know (& shared the following links) that Katie Holmes & Co. are sporting J.Crew's upcoming collection.

The following is an article from InStyle (click here):
The Romantics Cast Get J. Crew’d!

Malin Akerman, Josh Duhamel and Katie Holmes gathered for a photo shoot in N.Y.C. yesterday to promote their new film The Romantics, a rom-com about a group of college friends who reunite for a wedding on Long Island.

The cast, which also includes Anna Paquin and Adam Brody, modeled pieces from J.Crew’s upcoming Fall 2010 collection.

Akerman looked quirky cool in a sequined skirt and sleeveless hoodie. Holmes, who plays the maid of honor (and executive produced the film), dazzled in a glittery dusty pink sheath paired with a classic brown belt, while Duhamel looked like he stepped right out of the catalog in a slim suit and preppy striped tie. We’ve confirmed that the cast wears a lot of the label throughout the film (out this summer), and judging by this photo shoot, we can’t wait to see the rest of the film’s fashion!
For more coverage on J.Crew + the Romantics:
Katie Holmes is no stranger to J.Crew. When Dawson's Creek first aired, the cast modeled J.Crew often in their show. As a result, J.Crew decided to use them for an entire catalog that was sent to customers back in 1997.

Katie Holmes apparently still loves the J.Crew. "Thanks!" to Lucy, as well as JulieStyles (in this post) & Crewbie, who let us know that she was sporting the Sequin Studio Sweatshirt (Item 26138; $168.00) on her date night with hubby Tom Cruise. For images, click here.

What are your thoughts on the "models"? Do you like how the outfits, featuring J.Crew, are styled? Are you excited to see J.Crew in the new movie?


  1. The studio sweatshirt is so unfortunate- even on Katie, its looks like it has holes in it!

  2. The book on which the movie is based is pretty bad (violated rule of "show, don't tell" in every possible way) . . . but since the novel was written by a movie producer it should turn into a nice little WASP lifestyle porn movie a la JC or Ralph Lauren, and who better to outfit the cast than JC?

    Also, not buying Katie freaking Holmes as the character who is meant to be the non-WASP in the group, but knock yourself out, Hollywood!

    Notwithstanding the above, I know that I *will* go see the movie, LOL!

  3. I freaking love that dress Katie has on. Would that I had somewhere to wear it! I still think she's just gorgeous, crazy husband or not. :-) It is very weird, though, for one brand of clothing to almost play a role in a film. Like product placement. It's odd and it makes me feel funny for a reason I can't really describe. Like ... the movie is going to be one big J Crew commercial or something! I'm surprised the filmmakers would disclose this relationship so readily.

  4. I love Katie's dress and the blonde woman's sequin skirt. Of course J.Crew will probably price both over 1,000.000 and unaffordable for most people.

  5. I agree with Elaine. It's weird that the wardrobe is advertised as being from JCrew.

  6. J. Crew probably gave them the clothes or even paid to have them placed in the movie. That's why they are being advertised. Such extensive product placement is rarely free.

  7. Here is a link to video of the shoot.....

  8. They had a blip on E! news tonight about this shoot and included some pics from the Dawson's Creek catalog! Ah...those were the days! I wish I could get my hands on that catalog again...I stupidly threw it away a few years back :(

  9. strategic. product. placement. same with anthro on glee. carry on , people.
