Katie Holmes Switches It Up In Edgy Little Black Dress At DuJour Magazine Event

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.”
