When a woman ignites a fashion frenzy simply by hailing a cab in a cashmere bra, you know she’s entered a whole new stratosphere of style stardom. Katie Holmes, of course, has done just that.

Though we’ve long admired her effortless outfit choices — let’s face it, she looks as chic on the red carpet as she does while back-to-school shopping with 13-year-old daughter Suri in NYC — our April cover star has kicked her fashion game into high gear in recent months. Whether she’s stopping traffic in that viral matching set from Khaite or rocking a white dress paired with black tights and open-toe sandals to a gala, the Dawson’s Creek alum is making one bold style move after another. And we are here for it.

Because we truly can’t get enough of her confident yet relatable cool-girl vibe, for our April issue, we asked Holmes to fill us in on everything she’s loving right now. Scroll down for 14 of her favorite things, from wardrobe and beauty essentials (jeans and lip gloss: check) to her most-craved slice of pizza in the city.
