Nobody can schmooze like Tom Cruise, and he dragged the beautiful Katie Holmes along with him to the White House Correspondents Dinner on May 9. While Tom opted for a tux, Katie dressed head-to-toe in ivory separates from her own Holmes-Yang collection. Guess Katie was serious when she said she was giving design a try a few months back, but whatever happened to kids clothes? I see no universal appeal in this look, but I have to admit even if itís boring Katie does look stunning at the swanky gala affair, held at the Hilton Hotel in Washington, DC. Pairing an ivory blazer with a silky cami (like Zoaís Stretch Tunic with Banded Bottom in Silver) tucked into a mom-esque high waist maxi skirt (opt for Loy and Fordís Lace Skirt in Beige), Katie accented the look with braided gold heels, long wrapped necklaces (try Robyn Rhodeís gorgeous layered Grace Necklace in Gold) and a gold statement cuff (try Danielle Stevenís customized Single Engraved Bracelet in Gold). What do you think of the ensemble? Behind the scenes, Katie was a little bashful at the cocktail party, spotted chatting with Graydon Carter and Time former editor Jim Kelly while her hubby worked the cameras, greeted fans and signed autographs for almost a half hour. It seems like typical TomKat behavior, but Iím surprised Tom let her out of his sight for so long! I canít help but comment that Katie looks much, much happier than usual. Either she had a killer makeup artist or sheís had some time to rejuvenate herself after her exhausting Broadway schedule for All My Sons. Since the last curtain fell, Katie has been spotted honing her singing and dancing skills in Los Angeles Ė and sometimes letting Suri get in on the fun too. Whatís next for Ms. Holmes? Katie is tentatively starring in a big screen remake of the 1973 ABC tv flick Donít Be Afraid of the Dark, which has something to do with a house haunted by devilish creatures. If she moves forward with the project, Katie will be spending the summer filming in Melbourne, Australia. Sounds like a fabulous family vacation! Are any of you big Holmes fans?
