Katie Holmes is the new Face of Ann Taylor

Katie Holmes is the quintessential all-American girl so it was only a matter of time before an iconic American brand featured her as it's face. Ann Taylor has tapped the actress to appear in its Spring 2011 advertising campaign, which will debut in the March magazines. Holmes was shot my photographer om Munro in a beautiful Los Angeles home–one that probably pales in comparison to the palatial mansion she shares with her husband Tom Cruise.

“We are thrilled to have Katie as the face of Ann Taylor,” said Christine Beauchamp, president of Ann Taylor Stores. “Katie personifies the Ann Taylor brand – smart, talented, incredibly chic, and living a full life with beauty and grace.”

Holmes follows in the footsteps of Heidi Klum, Milla Jovovich and Naomi Watts, who have all appeared in previous Ann Taylor campaigns.
