Katie Holmes, New York Magazine
Katie Holmes dons the cover of New York Magazine this week for their Fall Fashion edition and sits down to talk about her new new clothing collection, designed in collaboration with her own stylist, Jeanne Yang. Of course, that’s not the only thing the Dawson’s Creek alum talks about. After all, what’s an interview with Katie Holmes without at least some discussion of hubby Tom Cruise and the ever adorable Suri.
Details and magazine cover photo after the jump!
Katie discussed the prospect of working with hubby Tom:
Well, we do collaborate on everything at home. But I mean, he’s Tom Cruise! His body of work is incredible. Every movie he’s done has done really well. I look back, and everything’s a classic. I definitely come home and say to him, ‘So, imagine a scene … how would you play it?’ And he’s helpful and sweet and gracious. He’s quite an incredible human being.
As for Suri, the proud mom gushes:
[Suri’s] so creative and she’s so bright and so special. Whatever she wants to do, I know she’s going to be amazing at it. I’ve already started my applause, and I will be applauding for the rest of my life.
On how she began designing clothes, Katie added:
I started making clothes for Suri when she was born, designing dresses, and then having seamstresses sew them, because I don’t sew very well. As a child, I was always drawing clothes, and I’ve always loved fabrics, and when Suri was born, I wanted to have certain things be from me and created just by me for her. And so that kind of got me into it, and then one day, Jeanne and I were getting ready for something and we thought, men have such beautiful tailored shirts, they have such a uniform, and we thought it would be nice to make things that are simple that you can have forever.
And in case you were wondering, she’s always been into fashion, citing her younger days:
I always loved clothes growing up. My mother had a drapery business. And now, part of being in this business is that you’re around really nice clothes. You do these photo shoots, you get exposed to Hermès and Chloé and Armani, and you start to feel the difference.
It seems Mrs. Cruise has been a busy girl the last few years, and she’s happy to add designer to that listing. I must say I’m curious to see the collection.
