We don’t know how Katie Holmes does it: a hectic filming schedule, a family, – and now a modelling career too? (Well, probs not so much of the filming, eh Katie?)
Yep, the 'Dawson’s Creek' star appears to have well and truly ditched the red carpet for the catwalk as she posed stripped for a racy new shoot for American jewellery H. Stern – her third campaign for the brand. It’s Katie’s sexiest shoot yet as she is shot wearing barely anything more than diamonds, black eyeliner and tousled locks, staring seductively (or, well, pretty scarily actually) down the camera lens.
Determined to leave her mark on planet Fash, Katie has already starred in a modelling assignment for women’s lifestyle brand Ann Taylor as well as the brilliant Miu Miu back in 2009 (remember?). Oh, and let's not forget she launched a premium designer line with stylist Jeanne Yang, which arrived in the UK last July.
Despite her recent ventures, the 33-year-old has never been seen as a style icon as such – so it’s a good job she has bezzie pal Victoria Beckham to turn to for advice. Katie admitted she regularly calls the pop starlet turned fash queen to pinch her favourite looks of the season. ‘I’m always interested in what she’s liking for the season,' the actress told US ELLE. ‘We go to the same events, and we'll call each other and ask, “What colour are you wearing?”’ Katie and Victoria have been friends since they famously attended Paris Fashion Week together in 2006 and have remained so ever since despite an alleged spat over a err, tattoo.
After a string of movie flops, let’s hope Katie’s finally found her calling… Watch this space.
