Katie personifies the Ann Taylor brand – smart, talented, incredibly chic and living a full life with beauty and grace. We admire and respect Katie for her intellect, kindness and enduring personal style,” adds Christine Beauchamp, president of Ann Taylor Stores, a division of Ann Taylor Stores Corp.

Previous Ann Taylor spokesmodels include Heidi Klum, Naomi Watts, and Milla Jovovich.

Katie was the face of Miu Miu‘s Spring 2009 ad campaign and was featured in J.Crew’s catalog. She and her stylist Jeanne Yang also have Holmes & Yang, a clothing line for women and children.

    Incredibly chic? Enduring Personal style? Intellect? Talent?

    You mean this “amazing” woman who has a limited vocabulary, has starred in a string of flops, dresses as though she is a bag lady? And her personal style is generally dirty, messy hair combined with wrinkled clothing that doesn’t fit her body style and lacks any fashion sense . Are we talkin’ about the same Katie Holmes?

  • truth be told

    it’s best she do something, anything, other than acting. or dancing. or singing. or designing…

  • Davina

    Intellect? Check her out on Youtube.

  • truth be told re: kennedys
  • curious

    ditto laughable

    is it April 1 already?

  • Whatever

    This is the most bland, least interesting “actress” in Hollywood. Sure her wife Tom Cruise bought and paid for this one just like every other magazine cover and acting job she has had in the last few years. She was JOEY on Dawson’s Creek people!!! This girl has NO RANGE!!! Who wants to wear old lady Taylor clothes now with this Scientologist as it’s spokesperson???? YUCK all around.

  • cent

    I believe this about as much as I believe Leighton Meester has any idea about italian brand Missoni

  • Roxy

    Can she every get through an interview without using the word amazing. I’ve seen her in a few TV interviews and this chick has the personality of a dead rat…it’s like watching paint dry…BORING

  • Roxy

    Ever** sorry typo

  • Romeo

    Prove he’s buying her roles, #4 and #11.

  • Susie#1

    Her expression is her normal one: dead eyes. She really looks like a wind-up toy, totally inanimate! And yeah, lots of photo-shopping.

  • joel

    Her vocabulary = “amazing”….and “magic”
    Suri is “magical”.

  • katekate

    Whatever happend to the other one she has? or she got quite a few of Brands of cloths she “spokesmodel” for. Sorry but I can’t help but to LOL.
    Ok little Kaite, ( i don’t mean that literary you are 32 years old) you might as well quit the “acting” job since you are noting relevant for years now, and try to make “Spokesmodel” everywhere and anywhere where they need “stars” like you.

  • CGI

    He buys her stuff but he can’t buy her carrier cos his own carrier is in bad shape. N&D sold only 16mil copies in a month,and did only 75m BO,LOTL and the hilter movie didnot do well.

  • @ Davina #8

    It seems in all stepford wife interview, she looks blank and programed, bip bip ….. suri is amazing, i’m so excited, etc. etc. etc.

  • Leanne

    Would she really “personify the Ann Taylor brand” if she wasn’t married to Tom Cruise? She was an ex Dawsons Creek actress with no publicity before she married him. Then, she married Tom and all of a sudden, she is a well established dancer (remember her ‘dancing’ on ‘So you think you can dance’?), presenting at Golden Globes etc, getting magazine covers and “personifying the Ann Taylor brand”. This is ridiculous!!!

  • Leanne

    Would she really “personify the Ann Taylor brand” is she weren’t married to Tom Cruise? She was an ex Dawsons Creek actress with zero publicity and then she married Tom and all of a sudden Katie is a great ‘dancer’ (remember her ‘dancing’ on ‘So you think you can dance’?), an actress deemed worthy to be on magazine covers and late night talk shows, presenting awards at Golden Globes and “personifying the Ann Taylor brand”.

  • Mikado

    Good joke.

  • lexy hates bilson

    Good for her! She looks great!

  • *~*+*~*

    Ann Taylor represents Scientology

  • Tulip

    Ha, ha! Haters are fuming again. Good for you, Katie, this is wonderful news. What about the little one? Could we see the little fashionista wearing Ann Taylor’s scarfs, jewelry, accessories? Suri would love the shoes, that’s for sure.

  • Lisa

    How nice for Katie.

  • debbie

    Congrats Katie!

  • Kassie

    Well at least they covered up those gigantic cankles of hers. That’s good, right?

  • gina

    ann taylor has become my favorite store since lisa axelson stepped in as creative director two years ago. it used to be where i dragged myself to get boring work clothes, but now it’s like a more reasonably priced, slightly more girly and less preppy j. crew. and the ann taylor loft i think a celebrity as a spokesmodel could only turn me OFF from buying a brand, not make me into a customer. naomi and milla’s ads looked great, but surprisingly heidi’s weren’t that flattering. they styled her short haircut into this weird elvis pompadour and she kind of had the crazy eyes going on. i wonder what they’ll do with katie’s.

  • catherine

    I think she looks elegant in this photos…I even thought she is Jacqueline Smith….she is also humble when it comes to all bad and negative critics given to her.People are just so full of hate and it is draining the life out of them,this is why they hate a person so much that they hate life itself….It is ashame,that maybe/probably lots of you giving this person a negative comments must be so perfect with no mistakes in life.Sad,really sad.

  • mailey

    ann taylor is for old ladies. like katie.

  • Lavito

    OMG, Ann Taylor used to one of my favorite stores to shop, clothes fit nicely. Not anymore, or at least when they get rid of Katie Holmes. It’s amazing how this woman that dresses like shit and looks like she’s needs a shower now lands a job with Ann Taylor. Hopefully they’ll get rid of her after the Spring campaign when their sales drop. And, you Katie Holmes fans, big freaking deal she lands a job where doesn’t have to speak and her clothes and makeup are provided for her. She can’t act, she can’t sing, she can’t do anything but sit in front of a camera.

  • A Katie Fan Still

    I don’t think anyone really hates her. It’s just she gets a bad rap because of who she’s married to. People who has followed her career miss the old Katie and don’t say it’s because she’s a mature adult who has a child now.The thing that irks people is that Katie Holmes used to have a bubbly and quirky personality (a strong sense of self)… one that could actually form a complete sentence and thought. And now it’s like this imposter has taken over her body in the form of a zombie/robot or maybe alien to some. lol She just seems completely fake now. And by fake, I means “more rehearsed”. Like she’s thinking more than what she’s saying and feeling.

  • From Paris with Love

    Wow all hail photoshop! Katie is a pretty girl but that pic looks like goddess Helena Christensen (42).

  • valma44

    i agree with A Katie Fan Still she is so boring now, sadly

  • Joey

    I think Katie is just as beautiful, talented, and fashionable as Ann Taylor’s statement. I think her marriage to Cruise is what makes people dislike her.

  • planetdoodoo

    We admire and respect Katie for her intellect, kindness and enduring personal style,” …

    her intellect??? ROFLMAO!

  • Taylor

    I wonder if the Anne Klein line can whip up a coat for little Suri?

  • Taylor

    Whoops, I meant Ann Taylor!!!

  • pr person

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Not very smart to have a woman who looks like death on most days represent or ‘be the face’ of your company. So now when she is photographed out and about looking like her usual shlumpy self… we will all think of Ann Taylor and know where we WON’T be shopping. HAHAHAHAHA!

  • Juliet


    Prove he is not Mr. Know-it-All.

  • RAc

    Thank God for Photoshop!!

  • EKKKK!

    Yep! This is the strong intelligent, glam gal they want! Just gorgeous!!! And soooo chic.

  • EKKKK!
  • Romeo

    No, #25. She doesn’t.

    That’s not my job, #42.

  • Katherine

    Honestly, when I see Katie Holmes now, I don’t see a strong, talented woman at all. I see a controlled, depressed, unkempt looking woman who seems to have lost herself in her marriage to an egomaniac. I feel sorry for her and am not trying to insult her looks, just that I don’t think Anne Klein is seeing what most of the public seems to see now. It amazes me how Tom Cruise seems to drain the life out of his wives. Happily, they all seem to go onto more functional relationships. It must be exhausting dealing with him and his persona.

  • Susie

    Actually, its pretty obvious. Katie looks fabulous after professionally made up and dressed. When left to her own talents, she has none. Any one on this blog I’m sure would look just as good, if not better than Katie with all the help she gets to look good for her photo shoots.

  • Juliet


    Oh so you admit it is your job to defend these cult members. Hope the cult is paying you well.

  • Paula

    As far as Katie Holmes is concerned, it seems that people are on a witch hunt. No matter what she does, no matter what she wears, all she gets is criticism. What is wrong here??? I think she is pretty. She seems to be a good and very present mother. I don’t care about Scientology but last time I checked, we were still in a free country. She is just being a regular person…
