#TomKat Files for Divorce While Katie Holmes Lands Fashion Deals and Covers


Not all is bad in the life of Katie Holmes amidst public divorce filings, Scientology escapes, and midnight ice cream runs with daughter Suri, the used-to-be half of #TomKat is immersing herself in the fashion world, more so than ever before. Not long after the divorce initiations were publicized, news of Katie Holmes' fashion ventures came to Twitter light. British Vogue tweeted, "Katie Holmes is taking her  label to New York Fashion Week this September." Styleite adds, "More big things for Katie Holmes: a New York Fashion Week show AND an Elle cover." Elle magazine tweeted an image of their latest cover girl, "Our August cover girl is —like you've never seen before." While The Fashion Spot mused, "How lucky is @ELLEmagazine that their Katie Holmes cover is out on the brink of the divorce announcement? Issue must be flying off shelves." The bigger question remains, when will Suri, the most fashionable of the now defunct trio, make her fashion debut? 


Anna Wintour Has a Secret Date with Galliano While Raf Debuts at Dior 

As if Raf Simons' celeb-filled Dior debut wasn't getting enough attention as it is. Now, it turns out potentially bigger news was also happening that same night. The Cut got hold of Instagram snaps of someone who looks a lot like Anna Wintour dining with someone who looks a lot like ex-Dior designer John Galliano at the Ritz in Paris. Instagrammer albertkcpang aka Albert Pang told The Cut he was “100% positive” it was Galliano. Soon enough, the images hit the Twittersphere, with the top fashion Twitter accounts discussing this mysterious date. Fashionista tweeted, "Did Anna Wintour eat with John Galliano in Paris the same night as Raf's Dior debut?" More importantly, The Fashion Spot muses, "Wintour & Galliano's Paris meet-up — does this mean comeback?" While no statements have been made by either party, anything is possible when Anna is in the picture.
