Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes: The Former Couple's Best Red Carpet Looks

It seems even the power of Scientology couldn't keep them together: after five years of marriage, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorcing.

Below, we take a look at the couple's most stylish married and dating moments. It's hard to tell when things went wrong, but at least they hit some of their looks very, very right—even if our vote for the most stylish Holmes/Cruise family member might still be Suri.

May 2008: Met Ball

Taking that year's Superheroes theme to heart, Katie paired her red Armani gown with bright cobalt heels. Snaps for appropriateness. (Meanwhile, it's unclear if Tom knows that "white tie" dress code doesn't actually mean wear a white tie.)

January 2009: "Valkyrie" UK Premiere

Katie's Escada dress would fit right in on the Great Gatsby set, in a good way.

June 2005: "War of the Worlds" Premiere

And so the couple's coordination begins. (Although, how good is the burgundy color of Katie's leather jacket? Tom missed out.)

August 2008: "Tropic Thunder" LA Premiere

I love it when Joey Potter gets a little bit slick, like in this dress from her very own line, Holmes & Yang. To match her sleek look, Tom wore sunglasses at night. Naturally.

June 2010: "Knight and Day" Spain Premiere

We obsessed over Clueless at the same time as Dawson's Creek, so we love a mashup of the worlds where Katie Holmes wears an Alaïa ("an a-what-uh?").

February 2008: A Benefit at LACMA

Like Emma Stone's red Lanvin dress with the exaggerated bow, Katie's white gown—also Lanvin, but vintage—is eye-catching and elegant. Tom countered with a white and navy combo of his own.

Katie chose one of the darkest, most sophisticated gowns that Monique Lhullier's made.

October 2007: "Lions for Lambs" Berlin Premiere

The sparkles are cool but the eccentric silhouette might be the best part of Katie's Armani Prive dress.

March 2011: The Kennedys Premiere

She looks natural and softer here than usual, in that mid '90s way I really like. Extra points for pairing that powder blue Ralph Lauren dress with a sweet little locket and undone hair. (And a husband in a  "I'm lowkey in a leather jacket" look.)

February 2008: Gucci Benefit

Tom looks dapper in that velvet jacket, but Katie commands the attention. I don't know what's better: the ruby red Alexander McQueen dress or choice to pair yellow shoes with it.

February 2012: "Vanity Fair" Oscar Party

Pictures from this night—one of their last major appearances as a couple—will probably be all over the news. Good thing both Tom and Katie (in Elie Saab Couture) look pretty fabulous.
