'Tis the season for topless magazine covers. First everyone's favorite girl-next-door, Kate Hudson, took it off for Glamour magazine's April 2013 issue. Now Katie Holmes, everyone's favorite girl-down-the-creek, is getting (slightly) wet and wild for Allure.
Holmes poses for Allure's April 2013 issue in Agent Provocateur swimwear (plus Jason Wu and DKNY dresses, but we're guessing people are going to be focused on the former). The beauty look isn't totally drastic -- she's still got that dewy skin, long brown hair and smudgy Bobbi Brown-approved makeup. But Allure went and doused her with water, giving her a tousled bedhead look. Oh, and they took her top off. "Katie is back and sexy as ever!" is obviously the message here. (And it's true.)
But Holmes, being who she is, obviously strikes a subtler tone. When talking about what her future holds, she simply says, "I hope this is a peaceful year for a lot of people in the world." She chats more about Suri than, say, Tom Cruise, praising her daughter's buzzed-about fashion sense: "She's got a great eye, she really does."
See how Katie's look has changed:
