BEHIND THE SCENES WITH OUR APRIL COVER STAR, KATIE HOLMES
Who knew Katie Holmes was a diehard Radiohead fan? Once she arrived on set for our shoot at a sprawling estate in Tarrytown, N.Y., she couldn’t get enough of the band’s seminal song, “Creep,” which played on repeat all day. The tune’s classic refrain, “I don’t belong here,” couldn’t have been less true for the actress, who was totally in her element while modeling sexy dresses by Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino. She danced around with her glam team between shots and at one point paused her one-track playlist to serenade hairstylist DJ Quintero with a rendition of Mary Wells’s 1964 hit “My Guy.” Before we wrapped, Holmes reminisced about her first-ever Instyle cover shoot in 2005. “We went to a bakery that day, and I had way too much frosting,” she joked.
“But I’m just as excited today as I was then.”
