Katie Holmes lives a pretty private life lately. She still acts regularly, though she seems pretty picky about the projects she takes on these days. She’s clearly content to be a mom to her daughter and quietly, semisecretly date Jamie Foxx. Who wouldn’t be down with that life?
But Holmes has a huge new job she’s also kept very under wraps. Forgoing a runway show at this year’s New York Fashion Week, designer Zac Posen instead created a look book to showcase his new line — and the entire thing stars Holmes.
He chose her to model every single one of his new looks, and he’s been dropping some behind-the-scenes peeks at the process of shooting the look book on his Instagram. With her new short bob slicked back, Holmes looks absolutely incredible in all Posen’s old Hollywood-inspired, glam gowns.
Just look at this magenta mermaid dress:
And take a moment to take in Holmes’ gorgeous slicked-back bob:
Posen is following in the footsteps of other designers, including Rodarte and Kanye West, who have traded runway shows for look books showing their designs on stars. Posen has done similar work to this in the past, but usually uses a handful of A-listers to show off his designs. This time, it’s all Holmes.
And this is obviously a huge job for Holmes, who is absolutely rocking all those gowns. We can’t wait to see the complete look book, because if these sneak peeks are any indication, it’s going to be amazing.
