Katie Holmes Takes a Duck Face Selfie, Reveals Why She Missed the Met Gala Dinner

Put away that duck face, Katie Holmes!
The Alterna Haircare co-owner and brand ambassador was spotted taking a duck face selfie (a big no-no in the selfie rule book) while attending a product launch for the brand on Wednesday in NYC. During the launch, she spoke about her experience at the Met Gala on Monday evening, dishing on why she missed the dinner as well as her opinion on Frank Ocean's performance.
"I had a great time," Holmes, who donned a Nina Ricci dress and Alaļa stilettos for the annual fashion fete, said. "Frank Ocean did a great job and the exhibition was divine. But I missed dinner because I went to the bathroom. It took so long to get to the bathroom and back."
Holmes shared her thoughts at the "intimate breakfast" which was attended by only about "50 people" (no other celebs attended) in honor of the launch of Alterna's new Caviar Replenishing Moisture Milk.
As a nod to the product, the "industrial space was converted into an all-white milk-themed event" which included a milk bar for smoothies as well as all-white flooring, according to an eyewitness.
"I love the ingredients that they use in the products," said Holmes. "I'm really excited about the Caviar Replenishing Moisture Milk product, especially after the winter we had."
Holmes flaunted her fashionable side in a purple chiffon dress which she paired with strappy sky-high sandals. She wore her hair down in soft curls and added minimal gold jewelry to her pretty ensemble.
While Holmes looked lovely as she promoted the product, the actress found herself on many a worst dressed list following the 2014 Met Gala after she rocked an over-the-top canary yellow dress which looked a lot like the gown worn by Disney princess Belle.
Next time, stick with a simple look, Katie!
