Katie Drops a Zero and Looking For Her Hero

by Notorious Spinks on 07.25.2012

Katie graces the cover of ELLE Magazine

We all know by now Katie & Tom called it quits.  I don’t mean to be judgmental or anything but after they wed, well Katie lost something.  Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Tom but I don’t think they were a good match.  I didn’t see that glimmer in Kate’s eyes that I used to love about her.  Before Tom she looked young, fresh and vibrant!  After Tom, she just looked!

Katie’s BACK!

Katie is gracing the August cover of Elle Magazine looking like a woman with a plan!  She looks so sexy! I even love the bangs on her, styled by Celebrity Stylist Andy LeCompte.  She looks HAUTE!

Want to recreate this look? Well according to Andy, it’s simple.  Check out his tips below:

I created this lightweight style by starting with a healthy foundation for hair using Wella Professionals Enrich Shampoo and Conditioner.  Prime wet hair with Wella Professionals Velvet Amplifier to smooth out hair follicles for the ultimate end-look. Wella Professionals Natural Volume Styling Mousse gives hair flexible movement with a soft hold when blow drying hair with a round brush.

Wala Magic!

What do you think of Katie’s new look?

I think she looks great. She definitely disappeared when she married Tom.

I think she looks fabulous! I agree with you. I used to love Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, but after those two got together, I began losing interest in both of them. Now I can’t stand Tom, but I’m starting to love Katie, again.

I used to like Tom, but now I really can’t stand hearing about him.

I’m SO glad she left him! Their whole marriage was weird!

She definitely looks like she has life back in her :)

I love her bangs! I tried bangs like that a few years ago, but my hair grows really fast and all that trimming got on my nerves! :)

She looks great.

I’m not a fan. It’s a little too Kate Moss for me.

I think she looks fabulous!!!!

I’m not keen on the bangs but I hope all is well for Katie.

I love the bangs.

Magazine covers typically have to be photographed months in advance…so I wonder what she had an inkling that this would’ve all come to pass by the time this cover came out!

I like her “new” look!

Reply

Connie July 28, 2012 at 1:20 am

Not so much her look as the person who styled her. I like her everyday out on the street look – to me that’s her.

I was never really a huge Katie Holmes fan to begin with, but she looks good.

She looks very good!

I think she finally looks her age rather than 15 years older and I agree, her and Tom were never an ideal match!

Kathleen July 27, 2012 at 4:19 pm

She looks amazing. I am so glad she got away from the looney bin.

Maggie July 27, 2012 at 9:27 am

Glad she got out! She looks better than ever!

I love it, I just got bangs last month and am still getting use to them.

LOL This title cracked me up!

I haven’t kept up with them but I remember thinking there relationship was odd when they first started dating.

I was so surprised they got together in the first place. I just never really understood that pairing, but then again, what do I know?

I think she looks great! However, I think she needs to keep her daughter’s feelings in mind and keep a low profile for a little bit since it seems like she’s flaunting her pending divorce a bit too much. Even though I’m not a fan of a divorce, it’s obvious that she wasn’t in a healthy marriage. :(

I’m not sure what to think! It all happened so fast!

She is just GORGEOUS!

Although I’m not a fan of divorce, I do think she will be better off without him.

Tricia Nightowlmama July 25, 2012 at 11:51 pm

WOW!!! UM thinking that is a bit much for her I thought she was more reserved. I don’t like it

Reply

Jennifer July 25, 2012 at 10:14 pm

she looks AMAZING! She definitely lots herself when she married him. He would have never allowed her to dress like this on the magazines so I’m glad she’s back to being herself, and a hot mama at that!

I completely agree… and love this pic of her.

Reply

fabulous! I agree, I didn’t “get” it. I love them both, but separately.

Billie July 25, 2012 at 2:41 pm

I’m seeing her again, rather than this weird zombie version of her.
