Katie Holmes, wife of Tom Cruise and celebrity mom to Suri Cruise, is the new Hollywood fashion icon sure to become a super model for clothing company Ann Taylor.
Finally, a lovely Hollywood wife and mother who has stayed chic and fashionable without looking perpetually like she is trying to be a wayward teenager. Celebrity mom Katie Holmes has been a devoted and doting mom to young daughter Suri Cruise (age 4) since the raven hair little girl was born.
Suri Cruise made celebrity fashion headlines this past week when she was spotted in Vancouver wearing a faux fur winter coat — a pet friendly style she was said to adopt after saying she wanted a real mink coat. One visit to the petting zoo seemed to cure that urge for her — and GCN writers all agree the little girl is darling.
Now, the announcement and spy photos of Katie Holmes modeling conservative and classic Ann Taylor women’s wear comes as a nice surprise to all her fans in Hollywood and moms around the world.
No shocking apparel is sold at the company. Only real clothes for real young women and mothers who want upscale and classic wardrobe pieces but can’t afford the higher priced boutique shopping (or don’t philosophically endorse excessive spending). That’s right — no Christina Aguilera or outfits to copy cat Taylor Momsen.
Radar Online shared the following details:
Katie Holmes’ latest movie may have flopped at the Sundance Film Festival this week, but at least the beautiful brunette has fabulous advertising campaign to look forward to. RadarOnline.com has a behind-the-scenes photo of Katie, modeling for Ann Taylor’s Spring 2011 collection.
Ann Taylor announced earlier this month that Katie was the new face of their all-American brand, and that famed photographer Tom Munro had shot Mrs. Tom Cruise in December for the upcoming campaign.
If this photo is any indicator of what to expect with Katie’s Ann Taylor advertising campaign, we are certainly in for a treat!
The move to endorse the well known clothing line is a good one for Katie Holmes, as lately her movie career has been (we hate to say this because we think she;s a nice girl) failing. Her acting gig playing Jackie Kennedy for the History Channel was canceled as the script was too controversial to aire, and her last film — one we can’t even remember — just tanked at the Sundance film festival.
That’s why her move to model Ann Taylor clothing and give her celebrity endorsement to the preppy-but-chic fashion line is such a good one…
Because even though Katie Holmes is so much younger than her husband Tom Cruise, to make a reach out to women in their thirties, forties, fifties, and beyond by getting her face known through the clothing marketing, she’ll be reaching out to connect with women she wants to have come see her movies.
Cheers to the successful partnership, Katie. Best wishes — absolutely.
