An impressively poised Katie Holmes taped her guest judging appearance on Project Runway All Stars in July just four days after filing to divorce Tom Cruise, and now Us Weekly has a first look at her scenes on the Lifetime hit.
In a superteaser trailer from Project Runway All Stars' second season, Holmes critiques the designers who are returning to the show in hopes of another shot at Runway's top prize. "I've been watching," fan Holmes, 33, tells the designers as they prepare to send their looks down the runway. (Other celebrity guest judges this season include Liv Tyler, Kylie Minogue and Stacy Keibler.)
Holmes filmed her episode at New York City's famed Parsons School of Design on July 2 in Midtown Manhattan, just a short distance from the brand-new $12,000-a-month apartment she rented in secret weeks before filing to divorce Cruise on June 28. Holmes has since made NYC her home base as she raises daughter Suri, 6, as a single mom.
Heidi Klum, who handed over the Project Runway All Stars hosting duties to supermodel Angela Lindvall, knew Holmes would nail her appearance on the Lifetime series. "She has great style. She has her own style. She's a designer, so I'm sure she did a good job," Klum told The Hollywood Reporter of the actress, who has her own clothing line, Holmes & Yang, with her stylist Jeanne Yang.
Project Runway All Stars premieres Thursday, Oct. 25 at 9 p.m. (EST) on Lifetime.
