Katie Holmes: The Big Bang Theory


That. Hair. Has Katie Holmes ever looked better?

As for the person responsible, it's one Mr. Joe Zee, Elle's creative director and a man who clearly has a sixth sense for when a girl could use a little fringe. Back in 2003, during his days at W, Zee transformed Britney Spears for a cover story wherein she revealed she'd been deflowered by Justin Timberlake and scolded the singer for spilling the beans about their breakup to Barbara Walters.

On the brink of her split from Tom Cruise, and under Zee's (psychic!) direction, Holmes got a new look for her August Elle cover. "The bangs and straight hair was really a collaboration between Katie, myself and Andy Lecompte, the hairstylist," Zee says. "We wanted something that was distinctly Katie, but yet a new way we haven't seen her. It was almost reminiscent of early Cher and that type of carefree glamour."

Looking good, Holmes. And good looking out, Zee.

    She is a natural beauty, but the right hair always seems to do wonders for her look! Love this!

    Aaaa this is the exact haircut I was looking for myself. Very 70s gone chic. Thanks for the heads up!

  • Bridesbymonique

    She really has grown into a beautiful woman.

    As much as I love the hair, she looks sad, thin, frail, and vulnerable. There's zero light in her eyes. Poor thing :

      Agreed! She looks photoshopped to death. Way too glossed over. She's a natural beauty - seen her up close and personal several times and she has great skin and a great smile. Here she looks like the life has been sucked out of her.

    Looking better than ever! And its funny, how we women tend to change hairstyles after changes in our lives have occured, don't you think? I know people that have made a decision to change things in their life as well, that started it off with a haircut!

    Photoshopped to death. use saw her walking down the street. Very pretty. Very natural. Looks like a tranny on the cover of Elle. Sorry.
