Katie Holmes has been laying rather low since news spread in late June that she was calling off her marriage to Tom Cruise after five years and a lot of rumors. Although she’s been seen out and about a few times with daughter Suri, Holmes hasn’t made a public appearance since her very public split…until now.
Holmes was recently at the 2012 Style Awards in New York as a presenter, where she handed out an award to designer Carolina Herrera. It was also announced last week that she’ll be the new face of Bobbi Brown cosmetics, something which came as a bit of a shock to fans of the makeup and skincare line since Brown has never used a celebrity spokesperson to endorse her products.
“We had tea in the afternoon, and we bonded,” Brown said. “And then it was, ‘Oh, my God, you would be the perfect face for Bobbi’. We weren’t looking for a celebrity, just a cool, amazing woman who would fit with our brand. And she’s just ridiculously, naturally beautiful.”
Holmes has been keeping busy since the divorce, lining up a show at New York Fashion Week for her line Holmes And Yang, as well as landing a job on Broadway, where she’ll appear in a show for the first time since 2008.
