Not unlike her dedication to putting fashion first when it came to her height difference from Tom Cruise, Holmes kept her commitment to taping a guest judge spot on Project Runway: All Stars yesterday, despite having filed for divorce from her husband of six years on Friday.
More than just a celebrity who dresses (herself and her daughter) well, Holmes is making a name for herself in the fashion biz with the label she designs with her stylist: Holmes & Yang, which sells at Barneys.
We once watched the two of them walk Barneys’ sales staff through the line and Holmes always seemed to take it seriously, more so than you might expect from a famous actress. So, we imagine she was actually pretty qualified to offer the remaining contestants some advice on how to “make it work,” even if she couldn’t do the same for her marriage (sorry, had to). According to People, Isaac Mizrahi told reporters that “she did great.” Juicy.
Once she’s freed from Tom and his “scientology goons,” we like the idea of Holmes making her name for herself as a designer (instead of, you know, Tom Cruise’s wife). She’s likable, has good taste, and could potentially go in the direction of the more “serious” celeb designers like the Olsens and Victoria Beckham.
