I wondered why Katie Holmes has been looking less haggard and as if she’s been plugged into an e-meter for days on end and more gorgeously made up recently and now I know.
Her tenure as the face of Bobbi Brown cosmetics has kicked in with two new publicity stills for the campaign being released on the make-up brand’s site.
Yes she looks good, but will the former bride of Scientology sell cosmetics?
Personally, I don’t think so.
There’s not really such a thing as a Katie Holmes fan these days and the public are still seemingly stinging from the nagging feeling that she was a willing participant in a fake marriage that brought a child into the equation and no-one seems to be buying into the strong, independent woman schtick she’s been flogging since post her lightening-quick divorce last summer.
To take the temperature of how people feel towards the 33-year-old Ohio native, all you have to do is look at the ticket sales for the aptly-named Dead Accounts.
I do wish Holmes well, but it’s interesting to see how things are panning out for her now, compared with how she must have dreamed they would do seven years ago when Miscavige et al approached her with the idea of marrying Tom Thumb.
Meanwhile, her predecessor is in Paris after a New Year jaunt to Sydney, Australia, where she’s back at work on the Grace Kelly biopic.
I think the problem is that whilst Nicole acted the part of Mrs. Cruise well because she’s an actress who can turn her hand to anything, the Dawson’s Creek alum bit off more than she could chew.
Never mind, there’s always her clothing line, eh?
