Katie Holmes has kicked off the New York Fashion Week festivities with a bang — and a lot of Instagram posts. 

On Wednesday night, the actress stepped out in a lacy LBD with a cinched waist and flowing skirt, which she paired with a matching black blazer for a fashion event for the Australian brand Zimmermann. She finished off the all-black look with a black Alexander McQueen crocodile clutch, stiletto boots, and gold jewelry, pulling her hair back in a chic updo.

The event, one of the first NYFW gatherings, included a dinner to celebrate Zimmerman's new store on Madison Avenue. If her Instagram is anything to go by, Holmes had a great night out with friends, which she documented from beginning to end — starting with a photo of herself getting ready for the evening.
