Katie Holmes is the face of Miu Miu's Spring/Summer 2009 Ad. She has evolved from a young lovely teenager to a grown-up woman who takes care of her daughter, Suri.
She's not known well as a fashion icon. In fact she will always be remembered as Joey from Dawson's Creek. But people need to accept that the girl is now a woman - matured and confident.
I have read a lot of mean comments about her photos from other websites:
"She's a freak.. Married to a scientologist.."
"Tom ruined her.. I like her better as Joey.."
"She's so skinny.."
"She's not model material, she looks fake on those photos.."
"Those are not her legs.. because hers are fat.."
"She and her bff Victoria Beckham look alike.. So scary.."
What's mine? This is her metamorphosis.. Once a caterpillar, and now a butterfly.. She can't stay young forever so let her leave the charming teenager image behind.
With each chapter becoming yet another facet of a crystalline, complicated feminine ideal.
Where an ingrained elegance meets immediacy and lightness.
Where independence, improbably, meets sensuality.
Where sophistication meets nonchalance.
The very definition of creative transformation,
to complement a woman who is impossible to define.
Miu Miu's S/S 2009 Collection are "literally" on fire, and so is Katie in her photos. Acclaimed fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott shot this ad campaign in New York last November 2008.
