Despite her smiling exterior the strain of Katie Holmes’ break-up from Tom Cruise is showing itself in other ways – most notably her rail-thin body.
Katie Holmes, 33, failed to hide her shrinking frame when she spent the day with her and Tom Cruise’s only child, daughter Suri.
Her blue and orange halterneck top clearly displayed her bony back and angular collarbone and her blue jeans seemed to hang off her.
Katie Holmes’ outing came as Tom Cruise’s lawyer lashed out at the actress and her legal team, accusing them of “playing the media”.
High profile lawyer Bert Fields spoke to BBC Radio 1’s Newsbeat. He would not be drawn on specific details of the divorce – but did stick the knife in and insisted Tom Cruise was “really sad about what’s happening”.
While Katie Holmes attempted a steely resolve yesterday, Suri Cruise looked tired and strained by the emotional custody battle her parents are to embark on.
The six-year-old is currently dealing with the news that her parents are set for a high-profile divorce.
Katie Holmes held her daughter tenderly in her arms during a trip with friends – and of course security – to the Children’s Museum of the Arts in the Soho area of New York City.
Little Suri, dressed in a pink dress and holding onto a cuddly toy, clung to her mother.
On Fourth of July, Katie Holmes – who filed for divorce from the Hollywood star last week – spent American holiday Independence Day as a single mother for the first time.
Katie Holmes was seen at Wholefoods supermarket near her Chelsea apartment stocking up on food supplies.
Making her way to the store, dressed casually in a denim shirt and a floral summery skirt, the mother-of-one looked feminine and pretty as she skipped along with Suri, who was in the same multi-coloured poppy dress she was in the night before.
Inside the market, Suri rode in the front of the shopping cart playing with a pale pink cowboy hat, with Katie Holmes photographing her wearing it.
The mother and daughter duo were accompanied by one of Katie Holmes’ bodyguards from her top heavy security team.
During the outing Katie Holmes reassured fans that she is coping following the split from Tom Cruise.
Approached as she stocked up on food, Katie Holmes told a New York Daily News reporter: “I’m alright. Thank you.”
Meanwhile it emerged that Katie Holmes is set to show her label Holmes & Yang at New York Fashion Week this September for the first time.
A spokesperson for Katie Holmes told WWD that her personal life would not impact her fashion label, despite her high-profile split from Tom Cruise last week.
