Little did "Dreamgirls" star Jennifer Hudson know when she walked the 2007 Oscars red carpet that she would inspire a shiny metallic bolero trend.

Poor Jennifer took a lot of heat at the time — as did her stylist Andre Leon Talley. I believe the most common phrase was a " ‘Star Trek’ costume?"

But I bet they’re both smiling today, after photos surfaced of Katie Holmes wearing a very similar look to the Bambi Awards in Germany.

We know you like Katie’s new ‘do (more on copycat cuts HERE). Although, the more I look at this impossibly sleek and shiny cut, the more I think it could be a really cute wig.

But what do you think of Katie’s half metal jacket?

Is it better than Jennifer’s version? Does the bolero bowl you over?

We need a verdict, folks! Your vote may help stop this bolero business in its tracks.
