Arguably, former Dawson’s Creek star Katie Holmes is one of Hollywood’s favorite stars. In the last year, the actress has successfully taken on the role of Jacqueline Kennedy and continues to fuse killer red carpet style (think classic Chanel looks) with casual off-duty pieces. But her biggest bragging right? It seems to be calling herself Mom.
The 38-year-old brunette often takes to Instagram to show us just how much she loves raising her now 11-year-old daughter Suri Cruise (dad is Holmes's ex-husband Tom Cruise). As we’ve learned thanks to social media, the adorable mother-daughter duo are obsessed with fun-loving pastimes like learning how to apply makeup, donning goofy feather scarves, and taking trips to the museum.
