Katie Holmes is renowned for her timeless sense of style and looked fantastic in a recent photo posted on her Instagram account. Going back to basics, the 38-year-old had fun playing around with a polaroid camera, resulting in a striking picture of the pretty actress. In the summer-ready shot, Katie looked laid-back in a pair of oversized shades and a loose-fit white blouse. The photo was popular with the Dawson Creek star’s fans, with one taking to the comments section to write: "Natural beauty," while another added: "You look beautiful." A third asked: "Do you ever take a bad picture?"

While Katie is much adored for her down-to-earth approach to fashion, the actress is no stranger to getting dressed up for the red carpet either. Back in June, she turned heads at the 2017 Fragrance Foundation Awards in New York, stepping out in a form-fitting gown by her good friend, designer Zac Posen. The £7,932 dress was adorned with intricate beaded floral embroidery in gold and forest green hues. The whimsical embellishments offset the statement fishtail train, which glided behind her as she made her way inside the star-studded ceremony.

The doting mum's influence also appears to be rubbing off on her only child, 11-year-old Suri. Katie previously opened up about her then four-year-old daughter's love of fashion, saying: "I grew up the youngest of five, so there were a lot of hand-me-downs that I would sort of change up. And Suri and I do that now with her clothes. Or rather, she does it. She says, 'I want this sleeve cut,' and it's like, 'Okay, we'll cut it.'"

Katie often shares sweet insights into her time with daughter, which have included going to the salon and hunting for vintage treasures in a New York thrift store. In one image, which Katie captioned: "Vintage shopping," Suri is seen in the background trying on a hat, as Katie showcases a beautiful velvet embellished bag, which is adorned with pearl detailing and floral embroidery.
