This Monday evening was rather ordinary and apart from posting some new pictures on my blog and watching cartoons with my kid there was not much exciting going on, and while browsing the net I wished there was something interesting and heart-touching to read.

My dear friend Eirien finally decided to share with the broader audience her writings!

This story is so deep and breathes with wisdom that I am ready to read it over and over again.

I am not a master of words myself, so I will only say - I LOVE this story with all my heart and I think that it's one of the BEST pieces I ever read!

Katie looks Chic & Classique in this ad - exactly what Ann Taylor represents!

article from PopSugar:
Katie Holmes strikes a pretty pose in her first ad as the new face of Ann Taylor. She joined her The Romantics costars for a J. Crew photo shoot last year, but this time the February Elle cover girl is all on her own looking pretty in navy blue. Katie spoke of her new role to WWD saying, "I applaud women who are doing their best to be the best versions of themselves and who are working really hard. And I’m glad that there is a store like Ann Taylor that can offer amazing styles for the many different roles that women play." She also gushed a bit about her own love of the brand, telling Hollywood Reporter, "I've been a fan of Ann Taylor since I was a young girl — I grew up loving the clothes. I'm thrilled to be a part of a brand I believe in." Katie's miniseries The Kennedys may never air in the US, but most of you would love to watch her take on iconic Jackie O as the actress also continues to cement her stylish place in the fashion world.

sorry, there was a major confusion with the recent spottings of S&K..

S&K went grocery shopping to a Whole Foods supermarket in Vancouver on Thursday, January 6th.

S&K went shopping to Chapters Bookstore and later visited Tom on the set in Vancouver on Friday, January 7th.

so, below are the pictures & outfit info from the 7th of January:
Suri is wearing the same outfit as yesterday but sans the headband and flower-print dress.


for the under-layer Suri most likely used Tank Dress in Black from American Apparel.
(its hard to be 100% sure from these pictures.. :) )

Who Wore EEL Faux Fur Coat Better - Maddox or Suri?

Surprise! :)

Maddox Jolie Pitt wore spotted many times during this fall/winter season wearing his favorite Delicieuse Faux Fur Coat from FW'10 Collection by Eliane et Lena, often combined with his Taper Hat and jeans.

Suri created her almost unique look, combining Delicieuse Faux Fur Coat from FW'10 Collection by Eliane et Lena with Pink Flower Headband, Cowboy Boots by Däv Kids and Tank Dress in Black by American Apparel and flower print dress/skirt.

Let's VOTE!!!
Despite this coat being from a girls collection, it looks too bulky on Suri and i personally, like it better on Maddox.. :)

Magazines - January 2011

Katie Holmes graces Elle‘s February cover.
Behind The Cover story:
Cutting her Thanksgiving weekend short, Katie Holmes arrived for her Sunday morning ELLE cover shoot channeling her most talked-about alter ego since Joey Potter. In March, she’ll play fashion’s favorite first lady, Jackie Kennedy, in the History channel’s first scripted miniseries, The Kennedys. From the looks of things, she picked up a style secret or two from her character; her ultrachic Isabel Marant lavender short-sleeve sweater and black cropped pants telegraphed the elegance of a modern-day Camelot. Holmes was happy to step into something a bit friskier, though—her shoot was inspired by the dark, sexy drama of the 1992 Japanese movie Tokyo Decadence. 


When Holmes’ iconic family arrived at the L.A. studio, four-year-old Suri got to work helping her mom dress up in looks from Stella McCartney, Phillip Lim, and her own Holmes & Yang label. Meanwhile, husband Tom Cruise sneaked off to admire the selection of vintage and fine jewelry for the shoot, admitting that he was on the hunt for the perfect gift for his leading lady. Soy latte in hand, Holmes dialed up Michael Jackson and Beyoncé on her iPod and watched Suri and Cruise play tag, the little one waving to Mom between giggles. Later in the day, designer Tom Ford, who was shooting in a studio nearby, dropped in to say hello; after he left, Holmes donned a body-con backless dress from the designer’s new collection. Her look was a long way from the sweet girl from down the creek.


ELLE interview:


On working hard to perfect her role as former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy: “I worked as hard as I could, because I loved her. On set there was this feeling that we had to create something very special, because these people were very special.”

On playing such a complex role:“[The Kennedys] were like movie stars. There was such a professionalism to their public image.”

On admiring Jackie Kennedy’s strength: “I didn’t realize that she had lost a child in August and then [Jack] was assassinated in November. I couldn’t believe it. She had so much strength….I loved her love of family, how important it was for her to be a good mother.”

On the design process for her clothing line, Holmes & Yang: “I have such an appreciation for the fine details and the amount of work it takes. I really appreciate clothing and designers so much more. It’s made shopping even better.”

On decorating: “I like to create a nice table. I love roses and orchids and French tulips and berries, and then a lot of things that are just pretty and I have no idea what their names are.”

On Suri’s shopping style: “The other day we came out of a store, and she said, ‘I want to go there,’ pointing at another store quite a distance away. In that store was the dress that she wanted. I said, ‘Wow, Suri. You’re something. You picked that out from a football field away.’”

On getting fashion advice from Suri: “She’ll really tell me [what she thinks]. Like today I’m wearing brown suede pants, and she said, ‘I don’t like your pants.’ But then she’ll say, ‘You’ve got to wear these shoes.’ Or ‘That’s so pretty, Mom. Wear that.’ She’s got a great eye.”

On not letting the attention from the paparazzi get to her: “I don’t worry so much. It is what it is, and it’s fine. I’ll go somewhere because I need to get something done.”

December 2010 - News

It was recently reported by PEOPLE Magazine - With days before Christmas, Katie Holmes dropped into a favorite French-based children's clothing boutique in Beverly Hills recently to pick out gifts for six children – including 4-year-old daughter Suri.

"Her tastes were very classic," another customer, who was inside the Bonpoint shop on Brighton Way at the same time, tells PEOPLE. "Very practical."

Among the purchases: sweaters in caramel and grey for a 10-year-old girl and a jacket and slacks outfit for a very young boy.

Other selections were a bit more "fanciful," the source says, including "a princess dress for a girl [of] about 8 or so."

Holmes also picked out a short gold dress and ruby red shoes, described as "very red carpet," as well as some beach-ready shoulder-strapped sundresses.

^^according to the provided description, one of these 2 dress was most likely purchased for Suri:
both dresses are from Bonpoint's Holiday line and already sold-out online.
