Actress Katie Holmes walked down the red carpet in a form fitting black outfit, stealing the show last night. The younger half of TomKat was in NY for the premiere of HairSpray.
Holmes has close ties with several of the cast members of the movie, and her attendance at the premiere was even more notable due to the absence of her husband, Tom Cruise, who remained in Germany filming his next movie. It was often speculated whether we would ever see Katie sans Tom, and now one of life great mysteries has been solved.
While attending the premiere, Holmes took time to give Queen Latifah a big hug as she congratulated her performance in HairSpray. Latifa, a friend of Holmes since filming Mad Money together earlier this year, reported that "She's cool, man, She's cool. I'm glad she came. Hopefully she will have a good time. I want everyone to go in there and enjoy the movie. I think they will."
Another cast member of HairSpray with close ties to both Katie and Tom is fellow scientologist John Travolta. Travolta attended their fairytale wedding last November and is said to "steal the show" in his latest release.
On another note, there are rumors circulating (again) that Katie is pregnant with baby number two. This whole scenario came about a month ago, with nothing coming of it. But we'll be sure to keep an eye on things and let you know if anything more substantial comes of these latest claims.
In the meantime, enjoy the pictures of Katie at the Hairspray premiere on July 16, along with shots of her with Suri at a Berlin Airport (July 15).
