Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Katie Holmes Allure

Katie Holmes’ skin is positively glowing on the cover of Allure’s April 2013 issue, which hits newsstands on Tuesday, March 26.

The 34-year-old actress shares a lot with the mag, covering her family, beauty advice, expanding her family, and her hopes for 2013, but she doesn’t mention Tom Cruise. I’m guessing he was off limits.
Here are some extracts from the mum-of-one’s interview.

On rumours that she is going to be an attorney: “Well, my brother and father are attorneys, and – we’ll see. I like the practical thinking of attorneys.”

On her cancelled Broadway play, Dead Accounts: “I was open to – well, to whoever wanted me. But it was always my goal to make it back to the stage.”

On her plan for this year: “I hope this is a peaceful year for a lot of people in the world. When you look back on the last year, there were a lot of tragedies – Hurricane Sandy, the Connecticut shooting. I…I just hope it’s a good year for everyone.”

Katie Holmes In Dolce & Gabanna - The New York Observer 25th Anniversary Party

Katie Holmes attended The New York Observer 25th Anniversary Party at Four Seasons Restaurant in New York City yesterday evening.

Striking a slightly awkward pose, the actress wore a Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2013 black dress for the occasion.

Her raffia-effect embroidered tulle dress, which she nipped in at the waist with a black leather belt, was styled with a spaghetti-strap top for extra coverage.

Keeping the look effortlessly simple, she opted for neutral makeup, a gold bracelet and Valentino open-toe t-bar sandals to complete her look.

I have been excited about Katie’s style since the Katie-Posh years, but I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I do actually like this look.

Simple and elegant, without the usual bore factor.

Katie Holmes In Chloé - The Other Place' Broadway Opening Night Performance

Katie Holmes attended the Manhattan Theater Club’s ‘The Other Place’ Broadway opening night performance held at Samuel J. Friedman Theatre in New York City last week.

Opting for chic separates, she wore an ivory shirt with black tapered pants, which she styled with an impeccably cut wool-crepe Chloé ‘Santorini’ collarless blazer from the Resort 2013 collection.

Featuring notched lapels and three-quarter-length sleeves, the typically elegant structured piece from the Parisian label smartens up what could have been a typically blah look for Katie.

I would love to see this look worn again during the summer months with the coordinating shorts.

Katie Holmes’ sense of style may have been compromised in 2012 by her rather turbulent divorce from Tom Cruise—and from Scientology. But there are no excuses in the game of fashion, and there’s no better time than the New Year for this star to launch a sartorial revamp.

She has a propensity for dressing way beyond her 34 years, in looks that are too mature, sometimes slouchy and ill-fitting, and, daresay, even drab and frumpy.

Occasionally, Katie pulls off a good stare-worthy statement (her Elie Saab confection at the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar party was divine), but too often there’s a mom-jeans vibe clouding the picture.

She needs to take a cue from her sugar-sweet, six-year-old daughter, Suri, and dress more youthfully.

There’s no question Katie is a natural beauty and has an eye for fashion; she’s the first celebrity face for Bobbi Brown cosmetics and co-represents her own Holmes & Yang collection, after all.

Plus, she’s the perfect hanger with a dynamite post-divorce “revenge” body working for her. Now, she just could use a better closet and a concentrated effort to embrace more elevated fashion—or maybe she just needs a good stylist.

Katie Holmes made a guest appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ yesterday evening to promote her current Broadway show, ‘Dead Accounts’.

In an attempt to shake off the boring tag we have given her last few red carpet looks, she arrived at the Ed Sullivan Theatre wearing a shocking-pink Narciso Rodriguez fitted knee-length dress, which she was keen to show off to the photogs despite trying to keep warm under her military-green Balenciaga wool coat.

Elongating her perfect pins, she wore a pair of nude suede Isabel Marant pumps with a cute bow accent.

This is the most alive she has looked in weeks. I’m usually so bored by her.

The lights are on and for once someone is at home.
