Katie Holmes pairs a J. Mendel dress and DKNY tank on the October 2010 cover of Marie Claire, on stands Sept. 14. The 31-year-old actress will be debuting her producer’s hat in her newest film, The Romantics.
Honest, self-effacing, and funny, Holmes at 31 seems comfortable and confident in her role as an actress, wife, and mother. Which is refreshing, because for those of us who loved Joey, her apple-cheeked, perky-but-vulnerable character on Dawson’s Creek, there was a moment a few years ago when it seemed as though Holmes might have been swallowed up by the Hollywood media machine. But the Holmes we know and love is back — if not exactly the teen sweetheart who peered out from behind a tire swing on the cover of Rolling Stone in 1998, then a chic, grown-up version, in control of her life and at peace with her place in the Hollywood firmament.
Read more of the interview over at Marie Claire, where Holmes, an Ohio native, opens up about life with Tom Cruise, how she’s a slow driver, and whether Suri should be expecting an brothers and sisters in the future.
What do you think about the cover? Would you mix an army tank top with a high fashion asymetrical dress?
