Katie Holmes has appeared topless in a revealing new photo shoot for luxury jewellery company H. Stern.
The normally conservative actress, known for her demure, casual style, has shocked fans with the images, which show Holmes posing provocatively on a beach.
“It's all pretty eyebrow-raising stuff from the mother of a 5 year old,” commented the LA Times.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail speculates that Katie is focusing her attention on modelling after her acting career stalled.
“Katie has been concentrating more on her modelling career after her latest acting offering in The Kennedys was panned by critics,” said the Daily Mail.
The H. Stern ad campaign is currently on display in Israel only, but the campaign is expected to debut in the US over the coming months.
Holmes appears to be vamping up her appearance lately, with the actress admitting she turns to designer and friend Victoria Beckham for fashion inspiration.
"We go to the same events, and we'll call each other to ask, 'What colour are you wearing?'" explained Holmes. “I'm always interested in what (Victoria’s) liking for the season."
