Katie Holmes just made her first public appearance since after the divorce from Tom Cruise . Katie Holmes has been selected to be the first celebrity endorser of beauty brand Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. Apparently the “Project Runway” guest judge is reemerging into society after her high-profile divorce and becoming one of the hot topics in NYC.
At the 2012 Style Awards in New York, Katie made her first public appearance since she filed for divorce from movie star Tom Cruise. She presented an award to designer Carolina Herrera.
And that’s not all! Founder of the cosmetic line, Bobbi Brown, confirmed the deal on Thursday, and said, “This all came together eight weeks ago, when Katie and I were introduced by a mutual friend.”
“We had tea in the afternoon, and we bonded,” Brown said in an interview. “
And then it was, ‘Oh, my God, you would be the perfect face for Bobbi,” Brown said.
“We weren’t looking for a celebrity, just a cool, amazing woman who would fit with our brand. And she’s just ridiculously, naturally beautiful.”
It was unclear what was in the tea.
Katie Holmes said that she’s excited to work with Bobbi Brown cosmetics, which has been in existence for 21 years without a celebrity endorser.
“This is my first foray into beauty products and the evolution of a look,” Katie said.
Katie also shares a fashion company with her friend and former stylist, Jeanne Yang.
“You want the hair and makeup to support the woman, just like you want the clothes to support the woman,” Katie said. “You don’t want to lose the woman. That’s how Jeanne and I design.”
No, losing the woman would probably be less than optimal.
Katie’s divorce settlement has not been made public, but she sure seems to be looking for work these days.
