Katie Holmes is US InStyle Magazine’s August 2011 cover girl, as photographed by David Slijper and although her pink cover was a bit bland (and you know how much I love pink), I love her inside editorial and additional cover, as styled by Jeanne Yang.
Highlights of Katie’s interview include:
On the excitement of landing new roles: “If there were one thing I could teach my younger self, it would be this: Realize your own power.”
On wanting to age gracefully: “Hopefully I can age gracefully. And if not, I’ll have to figure it out. But I don’t think I’m ever going to do my lips – my sisters would kill me!”
On her willingness to experiment with new clothes: “I’m not afraid to try a new designer or do something trendy, but it has to look right on my body. You don’t want to look like a fashion victim!”
On always making sure to be ‘ladylike’: “I always try to conduct myself in a ladylike manner. That was my mom’s advice to me before every school dance, and it’s really locked in.”
I think that’s what I love the most about Katie, ‘conducting herself in a lady-like manner’ … now that is someone to look up to. To see more on Katie’s interview you can visit the InStyle website.
