Katie Holmes swapped her classically chic attire for an edgier look in New York on Tuesday.
While celebrating her DuJour magazine cover, Holmes hit the red carpet in a little black stretch-knit number, complete with slits along the bodice, by Azzedine Alaïa:
As DuJour's fall cover star, Holmes opened up to the magazine about the acting "dry spell" she experienced during her five-year marriage to Tom Cruise.
“It’s the life of an actor. We don’t really have a lot of choice in the matter. You have dry spells, and then you have times when there is a lot of opportunity," Holmes said.
Holmes, who made a big-screen comeback with "The Giver" in August, told the magazine that what really kept her from working was a desire to spend time with her daughter, Suri.
“I totally admire women who go back to work six weeks after giving birth,” she said. “But when she was little, I was not ready. I was a very nervous mother -- like, sleeping next to her crib -- and I was in that mode for a long time.”
