Katie Holmes Turns 30
Is she “showing her age”?
Tom Cruise’s better half turned the big 3-0 last week. Is Katie Holmes “showing her age?” Hmmm. She is looking a little … shall we say … peaked? But seriously, if that’s “showing your age” then the rest of us mere mortals are in big trouble.
The former Dawson’s Creek starlet (remember those peachy cheeks?) was signing autographs outside the Schoenfeld Theatre in New York on Wednesday when a nasty little shutterbug snapped a pic of her looking “gaunt” and “hollow-cheeked.” Wait — so Katie’s HUMAN? Stop the presses! Hold the phones! Everybody FLIP OUT. Yeah, she did have a bit of baggage under her eyes and a peculiar cold sore attached to her bottom lip but come on.
Not only must she be totally exhausted from appearing twice daily on stage in Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, but Wednesday evening she was parenting Suri solo while Mr. Cruise was off promoting his latest flick Valkyrie. And of course, just being a working mother is tiring all on its own, nannies or no nannies. (Do the Cruises have nannies?)
Let’s get one thing straight: Katie Holmes is drop-dead gorgeous, she always has been and always will be. The woman could wear big baggy jeans (oh wait we’ve already seen that) and a litter box on her head and she still wouldn’t look bad … well, maybe not an actual litter box but you get my point.
Apparently Miu Miu concurs. The haute label has crowned Katie the new face of the Spring/Summer 2009 campaign. Though she won’t be alone in the ad campaign, you just know she’ll steal the show … big 3-0 or not.
