I believe this Scientology escapee is about two months from liaising with Taye Diggs in the sunshine: the rumours are true, Katie Holmes is getting her groove back.
With her marriage to Tom Cruise fading into the distance (until the media’s divorce debacle, of course), Katie has followed the announcement by nabbing the August cover of Elle and leaking a few pieces from the accompanying interview. Foreshadowing alert.
I definitely feel much more comfortable in my own skin. I feel sexier. I think in my 20s, it’s like you’re trying too hard to figure everything out . . . I’m starting to come into my own. It’s like a new phase.
Continuing on her upward trajectory, it has also been announced that the actress will be hosting the first New York Fashion Week presentation for Holmes & Yang – the label she launched in 2009 with stylist Jeanne Yang – this September. I’m not seeing Bridget Jones marathons and Ben and Jerrys binging in the future for this one.
Day Two of my HK Hotels extravaganza was spent at The Library Hotel; a hotel I consider the Manhattan Ultimate for intellectuals and fashionistas alike. Roughly a 60-second stroll from the gargantuan New York Public Library (and therefore Bryant Park, and therefore New York Fashion Week), The Library would check all of any 20-something’s boxes.
20-somethings to 60-somethings, in fact, as this hotel has all the qualities of a private member’s club with the most unbelievably welcoming feel. The customer service team – especially Billy at the front desk – was one of unparalleled excellence. One that obviously thinks of The Library as more than a job. One that always noted ‘the little things’. One that made sure I stayed in the (ever-appropriate) Journalism Room.
TripAdvisor had even selected the Library Hotel as winner of The Best Luxury Hotel in The United States. Travel bugs alike know that TripAdvisor is the Hotelier God. You just don’t second guess Hotelier God.

Models came out in 5 shades of blue eyeshadow that seemed a world away from the incredible collection. The show – “Uncursed” – took us through a mass of stunning black looks and led us through blues, golds, and (eventually) whites by means of ostrich feathers and heavy embroidery. Obsessing over oil-spill foil-printed neoprene.
