Katie Holmes Hosts Independent Feature Project

Katie Holmes Hosts Independent Feature Project

Katie Holmes dons head-to-toe black at the Independent Feature Project 30th Year Celebration at the Cooper Square Hotel in the NoHo neighborhood of New York City on Sunday (April 26).

The 30-year-old actress looked fabulous at the event, pairing her Alexander McQueen silk halter top with matching pants. She finished off her look with a fierce pair of Givenchy sandals. Katie hosted the swank party.

The mission of the IFP is to produce programs that assist independent filmmakers in connecting with film industry professionals and ultimately, connecting to audiences. For more info on the non-profit, visit IFP.org.

Katie told ET, “I’m really honored to be here because they do so much good in helping filmmakers to show their voice and their talents.”

yea im glad she “put herself together” for the event!

she usually looks like she just rolled outta bed!

she truly looks gorgeous here in the face

# 5

Love it when KH does the glamour thing! Looks great! Wish she’d do it more often. She can have a lot of charisma when she makes the effort. Also, if this woman is pregnant, I’ll eat my hat. Then again, it may be the very early stages.

# 6

beautiful :-)

# 7

She looks great. In a way I hope the rumors are true about her dumping Tom! Go Katie!

# 8

She looks fabulous! I love the makeover Posh gave her :)

# 9

her face looks so sad

OK.. 1 thing @ 04/26/2009 at 9:45 pm

Shouldn’t the people hosting these kinds of events have a career that is note worthy. I mean Katie is hardly a A list actress. But maybe everyone else was out of town.. Oh and she is married to Tom.. I forgot that one.

Maybe I’m being too harsh. Maybe Katie has done some quality work outside TV that I am not aware of.

Sorry my BAD..

Good to see Katie looking so pretty!

Why does she no longer smile with her teeth? She used to look so happy pre-Tom. Now, all he smiles look like smirks. Is it a Scieno thing? Did they audit out all her open smiles?

Did she have incoming movie? Since she married Tom i never heard about her coming movie.

#7 Where did you hear Katie is dumpng Tom? I know we can only hope. Why doesn’t she get herself together like this all the time, it can’t be that hard with all the help she has at her disposal. P.S. I think the shoes are too clunkly for this outfit, a nice sexy sandal would have gone much better

she looks so lovely and chic

Thanks JJ

so hawt

Katie looks really beautiful here. The outfit is not amazing, but attractive, simple and chic. Her face is gorgeous and her hair and makeup are perfect.

# no.10 yes you missed out Katie being a marvel at Broadway and bringing good money for NY.

I think she looks MUCH better than she has in a long time…..but why is she hosting parties now???? I know she was never A-list, but c’mon!….

this is embarrassing…

I really hope Tom picks the Matarese with Denzel Washington and Katie goes back to the bigscreen too. Im hearing all these rumors of her returning to Broadway with a musical this time around.
With her daily dancing practices at the studio maybe she’s really doing a musical in Broadway or a musical movie helmed by the makes of Hairspray.

Breathtaking
all around talent
classy
and sweet and so nice to everyone

break-up rumours? @ 04/26/2009 at 10:07 pm

Why isnt her husband there to support her?

What a babe! Great mom and wife too!!

Tommy boy must be bored out of his mind with this one….

Im not usually a fan of black but wow Katie looks amazing……

#20, How is hosting an event embarrassing? Many stars do things like this. I think it’s great for her to support independent filmmakers.

Katie looks great! Love the hair and makeup.

all im saying @ 04/26/2009 at 10:10 pm

hey Tom’s wife looks really hot

Smartie =) @ 04/26/2009 at 10:10 pm

Nice outfit. Class.

classy indeed and she looks so beautiful
and sophisticated. wtg Katie :)

Critics are brutal. I was watching PBS about a week ago and 4 or 5 critics were talking about the Theater. They dissed on Holmes that she had a part in the play that prevented her from RUINING the entire play. Basically her part wasn’t significant so if she screwed it up, the Play overall wouldn’t suffer. They said that she got the part for her NAME ( being married to Tom Cruise). They didn’t have any respect for her ‘acting’ talent.

She and Tom are a gorgeous duo. I like her style.

Re her smirk: Posh was known to have said that showing your teeth when you smile has “no class.” I guess Katie took that to heart and she always looks like she has indigestion.

wow she looks great!

What a stunner!

anistonisaHYpocrite @ 04/26/2009 at 10:59 pm

Just out of curiosity I went and rented “Pieces of April” because I heard it was good. I was surprised at how much I liked it and how great Katie’s performance was in it. I’ve never been much of a fan of hers, but she convinced me in that film. I hope she starts making some new movies, she’s got a unique presence is stunning. Go Katie!

She looks awesome!

This chick is such a non talent. She’s also a Posh copycat. She imitates Posh’s smirk because her teeth are yellow and crooked as he*ll.

Can she get anymore beautiful?

SHE BETTER NOT BE PREGNANT! @ 04/26/2009 at 11:08 pm

since she was SMOKING one week ago at posh’s birthday dinner!

listenuppp @ 04/26/2009 at 11:09 pm

Her haircut is awful! It makes her look 10 years older, plain and manly. She’s only 30, but looks 40.

@fact:

lol, don’t exaggerate. her broadway performance was substandard, and deemed, at best, adequate by critics.

on the other hand, the people who make up rumors and write nasty comments are sad. let her be. she may not be the world’s greatest actress, but neither are 98% of the industry. she loves it, so she might as well do it.

she’s hot

looking ok.

has to wear very baggy pants to hide the tree trunks. Seems like she is pigeon-toed. Feet are always turned in while she walks or stands.

Megan fox rocks @ 04/27/2009 at 12:13 am

wow she looks so gorgeous

What a giant D-list troll.

WOW. Will ya look at that. Get a few dozen makeup and hair people together and slap a designer outfit on her and Katie Holmes can actually look half decent. Who would have known considering she usually looks unkempt and messy with a dead look in her eyes.

Maybe she looks so much better because she’s away from that crazy little jerk she’s married to. If Katie has half a brain, she’ll get as far away from Cruise as possible. Since they married, she’s gone downhill fast, looking miserable, unhappy, out of it and a complete mess most of the time.

If this is the way she looks away from Cruise, I say RUN KATIE RUN AND TAKE SURI WITH YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

…………………………………..LITTLE TOMMY KNOWS, folks?

well, someone cleans up good.

I wonder why tom is not with her though. When we see pix of katie she’s usually by herself or with Suri… hardly ever with cruise.

Great actress and sweet lady. She’s beautiful and her smile is too.

great actress???? hell no!

hilarious comment.

gag

Michaelangelo @ 04/27/2009 at 1:01 am

Quit nit-picking, #12.

So you could accuse him of hogging the spotlight anyway, #23? They’re not breaking up and he’s simply busy.

That’s crazy, #31.

Pictures please, #42.

Are you a scientologist , #55. No offense but i’m trying to understand why you patrol the tomkat threads.

She looks hot and elegant not to
mention a damn fine promising talent.

I hope she gets a nod or even wins the Tonys for Arthur Miller!

Katie is a beauty. Such great body,height,and presence.

Complete package and most of all full of grace and class.

Not mean to anyone at all.

vinnyblue @ 04/27/2009 at 1:51 am

KAT IS GORGEOUS

jolly roger @ 04/27/2009 at 1:54 am

Why is Katie wearing a ton of makeup and still loooks like a twisted face horror show star. What is wrong with looking natural? Everybody wants to be fake. No real stars left…so sad.

The ONLY time I can say I really like Katie’s look.
THE ONLY TIME!!!! But where is Tiny-Tom???

The bottom half fails.

you people need to quit katie does not need to dress up for everthing she beautiful either way she looks 10 times better than these other actresses whose face is stretced from too much bitox even when she does not wear make up as for breaking up tom and katie are the happiest couple in hollywood why are the haters complaining now when katie is alone so they cant say shes using suri or tom is controling her tom supported katie at her sisters husband wedding they will never please everybody because some sad people are all about hate but im happy katie seems okay with it like she says all she gonna to is keep loving her husband and their 3 kids and let everybody else say what they will shes pure class through and through

Looks like she’s had botox injections.

Katie looks gorgeous here, and there are more photos of her smiling wide at wireimage.com for those wondering.

half.full @ 04/27/2009 at 4:23 am

she has asymmetric breasts!

katie looks great here! i love it too when katie glams up for events…she looks polished, happy and sophisticated here. although she may look a bit too old…at least she looks good.

Bad outfit, bad hair….and same robot looking face.

Too funny! I can tell there are about 2 fans of hers on here that keep re-posting constantly!! Ha-ha…..Cruises must of had to pay them after Nicole Kidman looked hot in blue jeans and last week and everyone raved about her.

And her outfit?? A complete mess and boring black with no structure. She could have at least had someone press her pants for her.

I see her Scientology minder is still stuck to her side like glue. I guess it’s in case she opens her mouth to talk she can remind her to say “Tom is amazing”, “My life is magical”, “Once he made me pasta”, Instead of “HELP ME”!!!!!!!!!!!

IF YOU WANT BEAUTIFUL KATIE SMILES AND TEETH, GO TO WIREIMAGE, JJ NEVER SHOWS THE BEST OF KATIE EVER, THANK GOODNESS YOU CAN ALSO GO TO OTHER SITES TO SEE FANTASTIC PHOTOS.

Maya ,we had the same thoughts.

ACTUALLY THERE IS A VIDEO CLIP OF KATIE BEING INTERVIEWED ON THE INSIDER, NOW THERE IS A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN, PUTS MOST OF THE PHONEY ACTRESSES AND MODELS TO TOTAL SHAME. GO KATIE.

She is turning into a fashion force to be reckoned with.

bud smoka @ 04/27/2009 at 7:01 am

KUNTY LOOKS ALMOST DO-ABLE HERE!!!

WAY TOO MUCH MAKE-UP.
I used to like her. She doesn’t seem happy anymore.
She seems like she’s trying to cover up something.
What’s up with her smile? Is it her teeth?

there was never a rumor about dumping her husband so get over all your excitements.
she is always pretty even before and after her marriage,it was just noone actually agreed about her happiness.
if she is doing this event so what?there is nothing wrong with that and absolutely not embarrasing.
second it is best that her husband,Tom is not with her,he happens to be working,you know,and secondly;if he is by her side then everyone will give them negative remarks on why is he around all the time,lastly,everyone for sure will speculate that,that is why everybody is flashing bulbs to take her pix because he is around/by her side.

She was never ugly in the first pleaseand she IS NOT trying to be an A-lister.She is happy where she is and whom she married to so why so hateful to her,besides,what did she do to all hateful perfect ******* like some of you?huh???nothing???If you don’t like her or Tom,why do you all know so much about her or them?Now I know a lot that are now probably responding to this comments that you are insisting of being not hateful:So what exactly are you doing when you critisize someone.kindly look in the mirror if you own one.
One last thing,why will she be jealous of Nicole,who was never known to be an actress until she met TOM.Believe me,she was not ever a popular in this country of many good american talents other that foreign celebrities.She was never an A-list before Tom.Katie was already a well known actress before she got married.If everyone knew Dawson’s Creek,then she is already well-known.Nicole was NEVER,ever until she married Tom Cruise.Even when she was just here for the movie,Days of thunder,NO ONE actually knew her.My gosh.

itstrueagain @ 04/27/2009 at 8:37 am

The break up news was a ‘blind-item”. Paraphrasing, what actress married to a world famous actor is trying to break her pre-nup but consulting with her father, also a lawyer, to end the marriage?”
Hmmmmmmmm, who could that be?

fashionaddict @ 04/27/2009 at 8:44 am

Professional make up makes a lot of difference! She looks fabulous here. Something is missing here, probably a belt over the hip will complete the look. Just my opinion.

she looks good here but where is Tom?

She does look great, although I think she has on too much foundation. Way to go Katie…she’s stunning.

she looks good on this event – yes!
great / promising actress – no!
dumped – probably!

Cankle girl and her minder look like they just came from a funeral. But that can’t be, she never ATTENDED her brother-laws funeral! Sad sack of sh*t.

By the way, where is her Tiny Tom??

Another bland, boring outfit brought to you by robowife.

Looks like you can snap that grossly skinny arm right off at the joint!

#65-April

are u a teen…or perhaps a immature young adult that sees with funny glasses and half a brain?

lol

Stunning?! Hardly.

It’s called Hair+Makeup and a Stylist!

Sorry, I dont like the trousers. They dont hang properly, she has good legs a skirt would of looked better.

If posh said smiling with teeth shows no class, then I wonder what she refers to showing the iron balls with shrivelled orange skin in her chest as? hahahahahahh

Holmes is just another stupid celeb who is convinced she is important while majority are laughing at her back..She lost her her major quality , the girl next door look..ahahhah

She is so f0king stupid, its unreal!

I HATE HER SMIRK. That is the only way she smiles.

@Louise:

how did u get that thing cloned from an unpublished Daily Mail comment I have NO idea! ;)

I HATE HER SMIRK! Get some new teeth if you don’t like the ones you have.

#80 If you choose to call critics hateful then you must also be prepared to take the blinders off and

(1) realize that they support an organization that causes a lot of harm to MANY INNOCENT PEOPLE AND THEIR FAMILIES …………………..

(2) they are celebrities and they foster an image to the public, the public can therefore respond to that image anyway they choose wether is in a nice or nasty way

(3) all they have to do to stop the negative critics is to DISSAPEAR
from public life and stop schilling for Scientology

Way to go #98! I couldnt have said it better.

her so-called smile is phony.

it’s like she is forced to smile because she has to.

smack her face and victoria’s too until they come to their senses…IF it’s not too late. lol

i just noticed she has dumbo’s ear!

katie has a funny looking teeth before she became mrs. cruise. and finally, after the marriage, she can afford to have a tooth veneers. i wonder why she isn’t showing her pearly whites now, it probably turned yellow again like it used to be.

Re:ACTUALLY THERE IS A VIDEO CLIP OF KATIE BEING INTERVIEWED ON THE INSIDER, NOW THERE IS A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN, PUTS MOST OF THE PHONEY ACTRESSES AND MODELS TO TOTAL SHAME. GO KATIE.

Really? They all look the same to me.

alluring KATIE @ 04/27/2009 at 1:00 pm

Katie is amazingly alluring! If you pay attention she has an inner class & grace, it’s distinguishable because it’s innate not something taught to her. She has a Grace Kelly & Princess Diane “it factor” about her. HEAVENLY!

Seriously, how much did u get paid for this BATSHIT

batshit ahahhahahahhahahhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaROFLMAO

She looks great ! Love the top . She is looking closer to the katie we use to see. JMO, but I think she is rockin’ the short hair , love it :)

hotness overload

a total fan @ 04/27/2009 at 3:04 pm

so very sexy

her left boob in hanging low, she really needs to wear bras now. Someone needs to suggest her that

A Grace Kelly, Pricess Diana look???Ha-ha,Ha-ha, that has to be the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard!!…..Now, go rent Mad Money and remember what you said, then you will be laughing too.

amazing style
she looks sexy and hot

alluring KATIE @ 04/27/2009 at 1:00 pm
Katie is amazingly alluring! If you pay attention she has an inner class & grace,
**********************
that class and grace is actually very very inside of her, is very hidden, specially when she slouches and stick her tummy out on the worse posture ever.

it’s distinguishable because it’s innate not something taught to her.
*********************
honey, it is Undistinguishable, actually. She needs walking and modeling classes badly if she wants to be the jet setter -trendy- wife ofa star that sometime the put out as if she were all that. A fashion adviser and a teacher could come handy.

She has a Grace Kelly & Princess Diane “it factor” about her. HEAVENLY!
******************
Regardless of Princessess Grace and Diana pecadilloes, they really had allure, I agree in that, but Katie does not have “that”. Just because she married Tommy that does not get her allure. Not even by far. Hunched back, ugly hair (looks better longer), fat legs (her whole body looked better before her marriage).

#105 (alluring Katie_

lol…hilarious wht you said!

You need glasses and a real brain and throw in some good taste too.

OMG…I am still laughing!

amazingly alluring??? LOL LOL LOL LOL LOLLLOLLOLOLOLOLLL

hot and sexy Katie…that Tom is so lucky

What is so amazing alluring with a slouchy posture combined with an asymmetrical smile?

how boring
u no the most exciting thing ive heard about her for the past month or so
SHE’S A SECRET SMOKER!!
i didnt think tommy girl let her smoke tbh
sigh, bored

THE TRUTH HURTS SO MUCH DOESN’T IT HATERS
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND LOVING FAMILY IN HOLLYWOOD ………………………..FAMILY CRUISE.!!!!
MOST ADORABLE CHILD IN HOLLYWOOD

SURI CRUISE!!!!!

ALLISON F. @ 04/27/2009 at 10:39 pm

I’m actually surprised–she looks healthy AND her skin is not the odd gray color it has been for the past four or five months. She needs to continue doing what she’s doing. (Also, nix the pants.)

Go away you imposter, don’t you ever use my name wrinkly and I DON’T AGREE.

Michaelangelo @ 04/28/2009 at 1:29 am

You have to be a Scientologist to like TomKat, #56?

That’s a ridiculous thing to ask of them so you can behave like human beings, #98.

I think the top half looks great, not liking the pants so much. The face looks beautiful, the hair would be better if it were longer. All in all I think she looks good. Good for you Katie. It’s nice to read some nice comments about this woman.

Dressing like an old hag again. Boring and blah…..Those trousers are terrible. Damnit girl…..spice it up, your only 30!

She looks great except for the pants part!

news is very impressive at all, I hope he becomes the perfect woman
