Katie Holmes is on the August cover of InStyle, wearing a shoulder-baring pink dress and her favorite charm necklace featuring her daughter Suri's initial. Katie modeled for the magazine as she gears up for the release of her upcoming comedy Jack and Jill, as well as her horror movie Don't Be Afraid of the Dark. The actress and designer is busy on the big screen this Summer and Fall, but is also staying focused on fashion, recently launching her latest Holmes & Yang collection. Katie was happy to dole out some of her advice on how to dress, as well as share her take on her daughter Suri's much-talked-about style. Here are highlights:
- On taking fashion risks: "I'm not afraid to try a new designer or do something trendy, but it has to look right on my body. You don't want to look like a fashion victim!"
- On her favorite indulgence: "Nice undies. They make you feel special when you put them on in the morning. Even when I was a little girl I loved my 'days of the week' pairs. I love the hot pink ones — that makes my day!"
- On Suri's style: "I do not dress her. She dresses herself! Obviously, I buy her clothes, but she is the one who puts her outfits together. In fact, she helps me. If she likes something of mine, I know it's good."
- On whether she'll have another baby: "I don't feel pressure to do that. We already have a very big family: a full household with cousins who are over a lot, and she has her friends. My biggest thing is making sure she's fully taken care of and doing well."
