Katie Holmes & Connie Britton: Coach's High Line Summer Party!

Katie Holmes is white hot while attending Coach’s Summer Party on The High Line on Tuesday evening (June 11) in New York City.

The 34-year-old actress was joined at the event by Connie Britton, who was looking beautiful in blue.

The Coach Foundation also announced that it made a $5 million gift to the Campaign for the High Line – a fundraising effort to open the park at the Rail Yards and build an endowment to sustain the park’s long-term maintenance.

Earlier in the day, Katie got caught in the rain while stopping for some coffee (pictured below). She was also spotted out that afternoon grabbing lunch in the West Village.

FYI: Katie is wearing a Chloe dress, Azzedine Alaia shoes and Coach‘s Madison Gathered Twist Clutch. Connie was wearing Coach‘s Legacy Gusset Flap.

  • Yassine

    Looking great Katie.

  • :(

    Your posture Katie … Look how she stands, her feet must have hurt terribly in these shoes. While her posture is terrible, for the rest she looks better than usual. I like the picture of Katie with Naomi where they are not wearing their sunglasses.

  • Jean

    WOW WOW WOW at Connie Britton

  • ERICKA

    Connie looks really nice, her makeup is just right and gives her skin a sun-kissed glow.

    I also, like Naomi’s airy pink shirt dress and sandals; she looks casually chic.

  • ck

    Katie’s posture has never been good, but sometimes she has to scruntch down in pics as she’s so tall

  • annie

    as a long time fan I know most of her pics, and really she used to stand good , one foot in front of the other , it’s only been these last few years that she stands like this, don’t know why?
    she never did before, that’s my only compaint , her hair is so nice , when you see the back and side, love the earings on her.

  • Myma

    Connie and Naomi looks great, especially Naomi. Katie looks like she’s wearing an old sheet. She truly has no taste in clothing or any awareness of what looks good on her. That dress just hangs there. I don’t care who designed that dress or if it cost a million dollars. It looks like a bed sheet.

  • Ken

    Katie looks all twisted. Does she have a spine disorder?

    Connie Britton looks the best. What a difference a hit show like Nashville makes in a person’s career. Connie and Hayden are in demand right now. Naomi Watts is doing pretty good right now also. Katie is the one that is struggling with her career. Good luck.

  • Just a comment

    The Katie Holmes we see in these pictures wearing jeans and looking casually is the real Katie Holmes. What a relief for her after trying to be turned into something she was not while she was married to Cruise. This is how Katie would have looked had Cruise allowed her to continue to be herself but he wanted his wife to look glamourous, beautiful, and young to enhance his public image of a heterosexual male, loving, successful, father, husband, brother, etc. Katie was a willing participant and probably enjoyed playing dress up in the beginning but got tired of the charade and would rebel towards the end and would be seen walking out in public looking shabby and spaced out, sad. That was probably to upset Cruise and eventually the way out was to think of an exit plan. This girl we see with jeans and her hair in a bun is Katie Holmes pre Cruise.

  • Just a comment

    How popular is Connie Britton? Very popular that there are 9 pictures of her in a headline for Katie Holmes. Its almost like when Katie is walking with Suri and there are more pictures aimed at Suri than Katie. In this case, there are almost as many pictures of Connie Britton than Katie. Wow! The television show Nashville is a hit. Maybe Katie needs to try and get a role in that show. I think Katie is better off on television than the movies.

  • annie

    everyone has an opinion, and that’s fine, however
    there’s Katie carrying flowers
    katie caught in the rain
    katie carrying suris stuffed animals
    katie going out for coffee
    tons and tons of pics on zimbio
    katie walking down the street
    this is just here on JJ
    don’t even know really who Connie B, is , as i don’t live in the the US but seriously you guys are amazing, I like differing opinions, when they make sense. Suri isn’t even with her, for all those non eventful pics yet they are all over the place.

  • Sincerely concerned

    @Ken: She’s pigeon toed, just like her dad. It doesn’t appear to affect him at his age…. BUT then he doesn’t wear high heals. I suspect she is going to be an orthopedic nightmare as she gets older if she doesn’t slow down with the high heels. With her height, u would think that she would not wear them so much but then I have never been one of a fashionista

  • Anne

    @Just a comment:

    I agree with you on everything. This only reinforces my opinion for everything I’ve read that Cruise is a man extremely selfish and only thinks career. I think the “Scientology” was more to her mother heroine pose, maybe she was afraid of what happened to Nicole (who in my opinion, if she wanted to have fought for adopted children). Katie was smart, he pitched the script right trail. Cruise, did not overcome the shock

    you will see what i mean by her losing weight, and she should gain it back, and see how she’s standing. Maybe no big high heels.
    the prettiest girl ever, ever ever… that’s the Katie I want back…..nothing to do at being 10yrs older, it’s the weight , the posture, everything!

  • Just a comment

    #30 – at Annie – I think that the whole Cruise marriage experience and whatever went on during that time (people telling her what to say, wear, attending Scientology auditing classes, cleansing, possibly even somehow trying to convince Katie that God does not exist (which was what she was raised to believe as a Catholic, all of the stuff she saw and heard in Scientology classes and people she met surely shook her her core, self esteem, confidence and she had to work at maybe even being deprogrammed, etc. I don’t consider Katie Holmes brave for leaving Cruise, I find her DARING, and RECKLESS to get involved with him in the first place. And worse to bring her unborn child into this situation. That is where I question her for having a price to be bought and sold to achieve A list status. I don’t think Katie will ever have an n A list career. She is not talented enough to achieve that status. She might have a minor success here and there but not a lasting, successful career. There is too much competition with talented actresses as it is and Katie carries too much baggage. Even Cruise’s recent movies have not been the blockbusters of years gone by. Not even Nicole Kidman is breaking the box office anymore but she’s already had a good career, won her Best Actress Oscar, and is wealthy thanks to Cruise’s divorce settlement and was able to remarry and have two daughters. She’ll continue to make movies and attend premieres and pose for the camera with her husband but her best movie roles are behind her. Life is good for her but I doubt Katie Holmes will ever had the career Nicole had. Its not gonna happen. And Cruise who’s been in the entertainment industry for nearly 30 years and knows people behind the scenes, a world that Katie is still trying to conquer, knows she cannot bad mouth him or he’ll probably use his connections to get her black listed. Katie will attend these type of events, get her picture in the blogs but the more popular celebrity (like Connie Britton in this case) will get as much exposure as Katie or more. Katie also put herself in this position. Time will tell. Good luck to her and Suri.

    @Just a comment: Putting alot on Mania Days….

  • Sincerely concerned

    I may be long winded but here it goes: 1. If u look at her pics and video of the movie she is doing, I think she looks great. Your posture/flaws is what gives u your character. Like the semi finalist, Michelle, on The Voice. It’s those quirky traits that make or break u. Wasn’t it Nicole that was in the Stepford Wives? 2. Meryl Streep, Helen Mirren, (I could go on) all got awards in their latter years. So quit it with she is getting too old!!! 3. I have to agree a little bit about promoting glamour than going grunge, but than I have to admire her WTF stance in this day of everything must be politically correct. Yes, me too, will find myself defending her and then she turns around and does something where I think, “u idiot”. After all, we ARE all human.

  • annie

    @ just a comment
    I don’t know why anybody thinks that Katie should win an oscar
    there are hundreds of actresses like her around.
    It’s easy to say she should have known better , or she was reckless, to go with him , maybe she really didn’t think that he was that fanatical, you know ,” I’ll deal with all that later”, we all know it happens, you fall in love, the rose coloured glasses are on, everything is beautiful, you see what you want to see, and anything not so good you get convinced that it will sort its self out at some stage.
    I don’t think that human nature is such, that you expect something that you think is beautiful to ever go from bad to worse, to end, I don’t think people are like that , so why should she be any different.?
    She was only 26, HE after all was Tom Cruise, he’s not just anybody.
    Regarding her career, I do honestly believe that there is a game that you have to play, in this profession, if you don’t play it, you’re not in it.
    I do honestly believe that you have to have 2 faces, the pretend you for public concumption, and the real private you.
    The bottom line is we expect people in the public eye to be a certain way, it’s a visual thing.
    Nobody on this earth is more untalented and a joke than the Kardashians, but they are very visual, they work it, they fool everybody and it works,
    Although I’ve liked her since Dawsons, and I think I liked that Katie better, in her early 20′s, the clothes she wore suited her, everything suited her. she wore strappy shoes, very cute dresses.
    I ‘m surprised tho that she’s not a better dresser now, more confident to know what suits her , what doesn’t, a confindent age thing.
    Katie has a definite look…..that is nice jeans, cute understated sexy tops and nice high classic pumps, and little leather jackets, long straight hair, pretty dresses, not drop waisted shapeless things, that she wore the other night, with those shoes.
    I’m a fan, but sometimes I can’t figure her out at all. Sometimes I think she lets herself down.
    She’s only going to get a certain amount of lucky breaks, and beauty endorsements, if she doesn’t wake up to herself somewhere along the way, people are right , she’ll eventually blow it, and it will be all her fault for not being more professional, at how she goes about it.
    As I said before, the Katie up until 2005, was so lovely, with a really natural sex appeal, she used to play Letterman, when she was on his show, paticularly the one when she was promoting Pieces of April, that was Katie at her best , that night.
    The other Letterman that came close, was probably for Jack and Jill, but she’s not consistant, she’s really changed, and I miss that Katie,
    Maybe she needs to do more events, to get dressed up a bit.

    @Just a comment: @Sincerely concerned:

    Holmes, Kidiman Penelope are all opportunists who wanted be stars. Penelope was the most decent, innocent people not involved in these “arrangements” (adoptive or surrogate). I feel for the children (Connor and Bella were rejected by 03 mothers). Holmes, created as a sweet Catholic girl from Ohio took a ridiculous farce this below (substitute and appoint Cruise as a parent). Disgust. So much money spent by the simple fact of not taking sexuality. Can anyone enlighten me why Cruise marry a lot of? Could stay only in dating as Clooney and DiCaprio.

  • Anne

    @Just a comment:

    Katie should have been 10 years, “married”, would earn more. Nicole earned more money and katie with the “save my daughter from Scientology” gained more publicity and scared Cruise.

  • Just a comment

    #39 – Anne – I think in the beginning Katie thought she could stay 10 years or more, she even embraced Scientology (there is a video on YouTube where Billy Bush of Access Hollywood is interviewing her and he asks her about Scienotlogy and she says, she likes it, it is helping her and she’s smiling and looks excited about it), and this is from a girl that was raised and educated as a Roman Catholic. I think in the beginning of their courtship and marriage it was a SLOW SEDUCTION into a world of luxury, fine living and dining, private jets, the doors opening to career opportunities, and possibly a slower introduction to the COS (so she would not be scared off), and since Cruise and Katie’s whereabouts were so public and photographed (and on the Internet), it easy to piece together the years they were together: we all know there marriage ceremony took place in 2006 in Italy, and by 2007 they were living in Germany for four months while Cruise filmed Valkyrie, and then back to the U.S. for Katie to promote Mad Money (which bombed) and for him to film Lambs for Lions, and Tropical Thunder, Knight and Day, Mission Impossible IV, Jack Reacher, Rock of Ages, Oblivion, etc. And by mid 2008, Katie signed on to appear on Broadway for All My Sons and she moved into Cruise’s apartment at the American Felt Building in Manhatten, New York, and she lived there until Feb/March 2009 because after the Broadway play she filmed The Extra Man (another bomb). And from there she went to Australia to film Don’t be afraid of the Dark, and then back to New York to film The Romantics, The Son of No one, and back to Los Angeles to film Jack and Jill. Throughout these years we saw them at premieres and Katie dressed to the nines in designer clothes and beautifully made up, new hair cut, etc. She appeared on the cover of many fashion magazines. She received a lot of exposure. But throughout this time, rumors began to surface about Suri’s development, autism, etc. According to many reports, their marriage was already over 6 months before she filed in June 2012) so that means by Dec 2011 when his movie Mission Impossible IV premiered when they appeared in public they were posing for the cameras. There is a video on YouTube where Katie is actually dropped off near Time Warner and she is meeting up with Cruise at the premiere. Katie is posing with him but looks tense. I think she knew she was leaving and he was too busy to realize she meant business. I think the big difference between Katie fighting for Suri and Nicole not fighting for Connor and Bella (and I know this sounds controversial) but I think Nicole loved them but she was not there biological mother and she knew they were already brainwashed into Scientology and it was a losing battle. Nicole would never leave behind the two daughters she had with Keith Urban. Katie knew if she didn’t leave Cruise would have enlisted Suri into the Sea Org or her indoctrination into Scientology would have begun. Katie would have lost Suri through brainwashing.

  • annie

    I think you’re treated better in scie when you are the kids of Tom Cruise, and Suri would have been treated very well by everybody.
    I think that’s not what Katie really wanted for her daughter, being home schooled, etc. Suri away from the paps is adorable, she just dislikes them passionately, i think.
    Penelope Cruz has slept her way through Hollywood, she took up with every American actor she worked with, she wanted success in America badly.
    Nicole should have fought for her kids, but she made movie after movie, and apparently the kids spent 3 months with each parent at a time, who does that?
    or at least what mother does that?

  • Sincerely concerned

    @Anne: #38, That is a no brainer! Somewhere I read a biography of Cruise. He was a disaster from youth with regards to poor sense of himself or boundaries so what u have is a shallow man who feels fulfilled with the whole family thing. Problem is, it is not real. At least with DeCaprio and Clooney,
    they r comfortable enough by themselves that they rn’t “desperate”. And more simply, he is short and very insecure with it. It is going to be really interesting to see who he ends up with in the next yr. or so. With Katie, she would be smart to not rebound and grow as a mom for at least a couple of yrs.

  • Yassine

    My analysis: Holmes looks great, Naomi too. I like her simplicity, she has a natural side that doesn’t go unnoticed, she looks a bit tired, maybe working hard for her movie, wish her the best. Her dress is fine, the white color (well a light color) was absolutely necessary because it goed along with the theme of the party: summer party. Her stance makes me think she may have some problems with her feets, common usage of high heels is not without consequence on the lives of the women concerned (morton’s syndrom) but fortunately she isn’t fat but I see her wearing more and more shoes.
    I think Holmes is a different person when she is single, she’s using to live as a great mum who wants to take care of her daughter far from scientology, I read a lot about this church, I have evidences of people who were scientologists, just terrible. She did a mistake as everyone did in his life, no? It’s not as she did a little mistake, no she did a BIG mistake, blindly spent 6 years, she said she liked it blah blah blah but in fact she got brainwashed, just see how she was in some interviews, Holmes was …. no longer Holmes … She finally left her husband [that sounded bad for Suri ... Divorce psychologically affects kid] and his church, Holmes simpy didn’t want to lose her daughter through brainwashing, Holmes experienced that. I’m happy to see the real Katie, simple, pretty, she is herself at least. I particularly don’t agree with @Just a comment: at the sense of she won’t have an A-list career and on the other hand, agree with @annie in the fact that she should win an oscar
    First of all, there is 2 major periods in the life of Katie:
    PRE-CRUISE PERIOD: Dawson’s creek is the best performance of her career, a young talented girl just appeared in Hollywood, I particularly thank Kevin Williamson, the serie was epic. Then, she got mature roles in movies: Go, disturning behavior, pieces of april, the gift, phone game, Mrs Tingle are some memorables movies. I didn’t include Batman begins because this movie is particular. Although she was great, perfect chemistry with Bale, I want to include this movie at the TomKat period: there is something not really convinient in that movie that makes us skeptical, she got nominated as the best support actress and the worst supporting actress, I’ve never heard a stuff like that (or I sould more heard/read) but please how is it possible? Do you really think when you critic someone you critic only her performance? She became scientologist, she promoted war of the worlds, her husband, her marriage instead of BB. Since 2006, she always got bad/intense reviews that she never got in the PRE-CRUISE PERIOD except Abandon in which critics were mixed.
    I am a fan of her because I truly think she is a good actress and will impress us, she is very underestimated, I will always be a fan of her, I’m proud of it. I don’t want to be a sheep, a sheep who want to be a fan of a star who has 1000 awards and who “apparently” has a lot of fans, I’m not saying all fans are sheeps but I’ve noticed this trend. I don’t get why people hate her, people didn’t hate her some much during the pre cruise periode, well, not like today. I can figure out people can have an opinion but sometimes it does not look like an opinion, more a hard feeling than opinion but I particularly like the quote of someone of this board who said that we should know who are they to understand these supposed opinions.

  • Yassine

    @annie:

  • Just a comment

    I think Cruise keeps getting married or in relationships with women because he believes it perpetuates his hetoerosexual image of a family man, good husband, great successful team of loving couple (what everyone wishes they had in their life). When people think of George Clooney they think of a playboy, a good looking man with an attractive woman by his side. Same with Leo DiCaprio. When we think of Cruise we think of a man that is married because he has been married more than single. But this fiasco with Katie Holmes has got to be a game changer for him. He should just marry a Scientologist.

  • annie

    You all know how I feel about astrology, so here is how it goes
    JUPITER is the lucky planet, you got a well positioned jupiter in your chart, you are up and running, of course you have case examples, so we’ll say Nicole Kidman, jupiter in her chart is in the area connected to her profession( 10th house), also venus is next to her jupiter , both in the sign of LEO (entertainment), she will have a very long and successful career, awards, oscar, all connected to her work.
    Katie on the other hand, has a 12th house jupiter, the 12th house in a persons chart is the most hidden house, even tho they say that people with this placing have a guardian angel looking after them, they have to fight a bit more to gain the recognition, they have to come out of that house, they have to make extra effort, to come from behind the scenes into the light, and if she doesn’t do it, she won’t have the success that she’s capable of achieving, because she’s not putting herself out there, not just to be seen, like walking down the street, but to make a statement so to speak.
    Again example…..actually perfect example…. Holmes/Yang
    she runs it behind the scenes, it’s not in the open some of those clothes are nice, if she picked the best , most flattering items of her collection, and wore them to the hilt , so to speak, most flattering shoes, beautiful natural hair nice makeup, she’s bringing herself out in the open, out there, she has a waiting audience,
    Holmes/Yang clothes
    Alterna Hair
    Bobbi Brown makeup
    People start taking her seriously, gaining respect.
    I realise that all this sounds Greek to you guys, but success comes easier to some than others, not because one is more talented than the other, but doors open, like being in the right place at the right time, others have to prove themselves.
    Katie has to come out of her hidden private 12th house, into the light, and she will have success.
    That’s why sometimes I can be a bit critical of her, she’s got everything in spades, but doesn’t take advantage of it.
    Hope all this doesn’t sound crazy, tried to simplify it a bit.
    By the way TC has a Sun /Venus at the top of his chart, so success is there for him as well for a very long time.

    Now I am a little simpler in my astrology! Kaley Cuocco, Taylor Swift, Britney Speers, even JFK jr. (All sagi’s) All sizzle in their youth but then??…? Personally, I think that when u try to force them out of there comfort zone (to evolve) they look forced and fizzle. Give them their space and freedom and hope for the best! We will see…..

  • Sincerely concerned

    Me personally, I like pic 3 the best or the pic of her with Luke with the squirrel, laughing, etc. BUT when she has that “scowling at the Paps” look, not attractive! That is the part I don’t like in her. If u want to be famous, the Paps r part of the job. Maturity is taking the good with the bad.
