All eyes were on Katie Holmes this week after she filed for divorce from her husband of five years Tom Cruise on Friday. She moved in to a new apartment in New York and was spotted without her engagement ring and then Elle US unveiled their August cover star.
Katie was photographed by Carter Smith and styled by Joe Zee for the cover where she is rocking a more grown-up, sexy look. Inside the publication is an interview with her which took place 6 weeks before she filed for divorce, but still contains some interesting statements. Perhaps the most telling is when she talks about growing up, “I definitely feel much more comfortable in my own skin. I feel sexier. I think in my 20s, it’s like you’re trying too hard to figure everything out... I’m starting to come into my own. It’s like a new phase.”
Katie also talks about Tom in the interview saying, "He has been Tom Cruise for 30 years. I know who I am and where I am and where I want to go, so I want to focus on that." We're probably reading much more in to this than we would have a month ago, but the whole situation certainly is intriguing. Do you like this cover? Regardless, we're certain this issue will be flying off newsstands!
