Katie Holmes shows off her sexy side, sporting tousled, wet hair and cleavage, on the cover of Allure magazine's April 2013 issue.
The 34-year-old actress, single mom and and "Dawson's Creek" alum reveals in an interview with the outlet how a certain reality star and drag queen helped inspire her fashion career and how her and ex-husband Tom Cruise's daughter Suri has her own "great eye" for style.
Holmes last year launched her own clothing line, Holmes & Yang and is currently the celebrity face of two beauty brands -- Alterna Haircare, which she also co-owns, and Bobbi Brown cosmetics. She also used to be a teen model and student at a modeling and charm school in her native Toledo, Ohio, according to the Toledo Blade.
"Growing up, I was really into the supermodels," Holmes, a native of Ohio, told Allure. "I would listen to RuPaul's 'You Better Work.'"
RuPaul, now known as the host of the reality show "RuPaul's Drag Race," scored a hit with the 1992 song "Supermodel (You Better Work)." (Watch music video, below)
In an Allure photo spread, Holmes "works" it herself, sporting several sexy and chic outfits, including a black zip-up Agent Provocateur swimsuit and an embellished black Jason Wu gown.
Her daughter Suri is a tabloid favorite and has emerged as one of the fashion-conscious celebrity kids. She is often photographed dressed in bright and colorful dresses and shoes, including high heels, although she has showcased more casual looks recently. Her style has even inspired a fan-made fashion blog.
Holmes told Allure that her daughter picks out her own outfits, saying: "She's got a great eye, she really does."
Holmes and Suri are often photographed by the paparazzi in New York City, where they moved following the actress' split from Cruise last year. Homes, who is currently not romantically linked to anyone, also told Allure that she has not ruled out having more children.
"I don't know," she said. "I'm open to it."
