Would You Wear Stockings With a Run in Them?

Katie Holmes's stockings recently had a run at the inner thigh, but she didn't seem to care . . .

If I was wearing an edgy outfit, I'd require it! But if I was in something neat and put together, I'd be mortified!

At first only in cold days with pants :P But like this i wouldn´t. But if it happened i would only take it off if it was REAAAAAAAALLY BIG.

not on purpose - but I actually think she looks really cool in this pic, runs and all - like I say, I wouldn't plan to do it (especially because it just looks like you're trying too hard - like wearing town jeans), but I also wouldn't freak out if my stockings got torn - I would just wait until I got home and then throw them away...

I used to wear holey tights all the time when I was a teenager. I'd even layer different pairs to make an arbitrary lace pattern. It works in a lot of cases, but if you just have one like that... it looks kind of sloppy or careless.

only if the runs were intentional and worked with the whole look. I wouldn't wear them out of laziness or just not giving an f.

Yeah - I would take them off if I noticed a run in them if possible. It would bother me too much to carry on with them that way...maybe it's just me. But I certainly hope Katey didn't realize she had a run - someone like her need NOT run around with stockings like that as much as she spends on clothes buy another pair somewhere!

Most definitely. I think it adds edge to a simple attire.. with killer 4inch boots. Alexander Wang's fall RTW has definitely inspired me.

I'd take them off as soon as I saw it, but I'm sure our darling Katie just didnt realize. I always make sure my legs are shaved and moisturized under tights, just in case this happens, cause I'm a bit of a walking disaster.

I can't stand when I have a run in my stockings. I think it looks trashy. Now if she somehow didn't notice, it's understandable. But... blech.

I'm thinking Katie like most ladies didn't even realize she had a run in her's not biggie it happens to the best of them!

maybe it's all the years of catholic school...but runs don't faze me. especially if they're (oddly) pretty or in a good place. it sounds weird, doesn't it? if you have the confidence to rock it, rock it.

No, wearing ripped stocking makes me feel like a cheap whore.

No I would defi take them off, it's easy to carry an extra pair of stockings and you can always bring a cheap pair in case- I detest stocking runs they make me feel sloppy.

I think the outfit would look better without stockings, but this is definitely an improvement to her loose fitting boy jeans.
