NYFW Newcomer Katie Holmes Adds Cosmetics Model to Her Growing Fashion Resume

Some stars go into hiding after a divorce, but Katie Holmes seems to be busier than ever after her split from Tom Cruise. She's been photographed a lot bonding with daughter Suri in New York and it's just been revealed that the multitasking mom is the new face of Bobbi Brown cosmetics. This isn't Katie's first modeling gig since she's already appeared in advertisements for Miu Miu, Ann Taylor, J. Crew, and John Frieda. The versatile actress also has a clothing line called Holmes & Yang, which plays right into her classic sense of style.
