You know when you have that great gal-pal who starts dating that less than savory dude who takes up all her time and energy, and all you and your friends can do is hope and pray that someday she’ll come to her senses? And when she finally does, you’re so happy to welcome her back into the fold? That’s how Katie Holmes‘ fans seem to be receiving the news of her divorce and the events that have followed. Katie seems to have a whole arsenal of aspirations she’s been unable to pursue, and now that she’s free, it looks like nothing can stop her. See her upcoming magazine coverbelow!
No one wants to wish divorce on anyone, but I’ll be the first to say sometimes they’re the best thing for everyone involved. Katie Holmes seems to be of this mindset as she’s suddenly filling her time with a guest spot on Project Runway All Stars (another season? pinch me!), the August cover of Elle magazine (looking amazing) and apparently an upcoming runway show at New York Fashion Week in September.
We can only speculate as to the way Katie’s feeling at the moment — at worst she’s staying busy to counter divorce grief, at best she’s feeling an acute sense of freedom — but we can get really excited to see her blossoming on her own. I’m personally interested to see if this trend continues, but for now I just have to give Katie kudos for exercising some serious poise and grace in less than easy circumstances.
Are you looking forward to Katie’s latest forays into fashion? Were you a fan of Katie’s before she married Tom?
