Katie Holmes and her design partner (and stylist) Jeanne Yang debuted their new fall collection for Holmes & Yang to editors yesterday in an intimate setting held at the Palace Hotel in New York City. The collection was inspired by working women and mothers, Yang told InStyle.com after the show, an inspiration that lent itself to go-anywhere pieces for day and night and a wearable beauty look created by Bobbi Brown (fittingly, as Holmes is the face of the brand). “The best thing about our collection is that it does not need a lot of explanation,” Yang said. “The clothing speaks for itself.” It does—but it also speaks to Katie’s style, and she’s already eyeing some of the pieces she co-created for fall, like this plaid pencil skirt with an off-the-shoulder top (above left). “It is very flattering and shows off a woman’s elegance,” the actress said of the look.

Katie Holmes is expanding her presence in the beauty world! The actress, who is the first celebrity face of Bobbi Brown cosmetics, just signed on as the co-owner and spokesperson for Alterna haircare. According to Holmes, one of the driving forces behind her decision was the brand’s eco-friendly nature. “I love that Alterna uses natural and organic ingredients and stays away from harsh chemicals like sulfates and parabens,” she told WWD. “It’s good for my hair and good for the earth, so I feel good using it.” Plus, Alterna’s president Joan Malloy hinted that a hair accessory collaboration with the star’s Holmes & Yang label may be in the works. We’re crossing our fingers! Keep an eye out for Holmes’s campaign shots for the brand’s Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil, which roll out in mid-February.
