Katie Holmes caused a stir a couple of months back with a dazzling set of ads for luxury jeweller H Stern, and the actress is back for more, featuring in a new set of risque ads for the brand. The 33-year-old, who has modelled sporadically since settling down with Tom Cruise, stares down the camera lens in a series of bikini shots.
Holmes switches between black and white bikinis for the photographs, many of which see her lying on the sand showing off diamonds and gold jewellery. Although she has turned attention to raising her daughter Suri in recent years, Katie has fronted fashion campaigns before, including a high profile shoot for Ann Taylor in the spring of 2011. However, the latest ads for H. Stern are deemed to be her sexiest yet. According to the Huffington Post, the sizzling photographs are only being used promotionally in Israel at the minute, but could feature on billboards in the U.S. in the near future.
Film-wise, it was a strange year for Holmes in 2011, who began by starring in biopic The Kennedys. The mini-series was rejected by numerous networks before finding a home at ReelzChannel, however, it received mainly positive reviews upon its release. She then starred alongside Adam Sandler in the critically panned 'Jack and Jill' - reviews aggregating website Rotten Tomatoes handed the movie a score of 0%.
