Victoria Beckham & Katie Holmes Help Each Other Get Dressed

Posted: Updated:

We, being fashion mortals, must rely on our friends, mothers and online flash sales to assemble the perfect outfit for a night out. Not so for celebrities -- who needs a group of amateurs when you've got every top Hollywood stylist on speed dial?

Katie Holmes, apparently. In the January issue of Elle, the actress told the mag that she and pal Victoria Beckham, two of Hollywood's most fashionable gals, consult with each other when picking out those chic red carpet outfits:

Friend and fellow high-profile designer/wife Katie Holmes trusts Beckham's instinct too. "We go to the same events, and we'll call each other to ask, 'What color are you wearing?' " says Holmes. "I'm always interested in what she's liking for the season."

So cute! We wonder if Posh ever recommends anything besides platform Louboutins, oversized sunnies and solid-colored dresses. Better yet, perhaps the friends exchange kiddie clothing tips for little Harper Beckham and Suri Cruise?

Either way, it's style tidbits like these that humanize the larger-than-life stars, similar to when Gwyneth Paltrow explained her friendship with Beyonce with this amazing image:

"Our best times have been when we are just sitting around in sweatpants, having a glass of wine, chatting about life."

We're guessing Victoria never advises Katie to try a pair of sweats.
