Days after filing to divorce Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes taped an episode of Project Runway: All Stars, in which she appears as a guest judge.
Heidi Klum, host of the spinoff's parent series, Project Runway, thinks the actress and hands-on mother of 6-year-old Suri Cruise will ace the gig because of her experience co-designing the label Holmes & Yang with stylist Jeanne Yang.
"She has great style. She has her own style. She's a designer, so I'm sure she did a good job," Klum told THR on Tuesday night at Project Runway's 10-season anniversary party on New York City's High Line.
"I think she has a great line," Klum said of Holmes & Yang. "I like a lot of her clothes, especially right now. She has these very beautiful, like, spaghetti-strap camisoles. I love them, and the line. Sometimes these very basic things are the hardest ones to find."
Project Runway's 10th installment debuts Thursday, bringing back Klum, mentor Tim Gunn and judges Michael Kors and Nina Garcia. An airdate for its upcoming All-Stars edition, featuring Isaac Mizrahi as a judge, has not yet been determined.
Last week, Holmes and Cruise reached a settlement in their divorce proceedings -- less than two weeks after Holmes filed to end their five-year marriage.
As previously reported, Holmes & Yang will make their first outing at New York Fashion Week in September with a presentation as opposed to a runway show. The co-designers founded the well reviewed line in 2009; is it is currently sold at Barneys and Harvey Nichols in London, and includes daywear, eveningwear and handbags"
