Katie Holmes Honored at 2011 Crystal + Lucy Awards


She’s managed to be both a successful actress and a style icon, and Katie Holmes was given a very special honor at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards on Thursday night (June 16).

With the ceremony being held inside the Beverly Hilton Hotel's International Ballroom, the “Mad Money” mommy accepted the Women in Film Face of the Future trophy for her work in the industry and potential for Tinseltown longevity.

In accepting her award, Holmes thanked her parents, who were in the audience, and husband Tom Cruise, “whose commitment to his work and family inspires me daily.”

Looking ahead to what’s next, Katie told press that she’d love to play “someone glamorous, a combination of Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe.”

Holmes explained, "They're very different but bring together in one character that ladylike feeling and that pain and also the strength. It's something I'm interested in exploring."

Meanwhile, other Crystal + Lucy attendees included Crystal Award for Excellence in Film honoree Annette Bening, who turned up alongside husband Warren Beatty, as well as Elle Fanning, Brittany Snow, Rose McGowan, Cote de Pablo, Garcelle Beauvais and Jenna Elfman.

Women in Film was established in 1973 to help women succeed in the entertainment industry by providing scholarships, classes and other services and support.
