In an exclusive interview with Women's Wear Daily, actress Katie Holmes announced what her next big move will be: A first-ever cosmetics deal in Bobbi Brown.
As the brand's first celebrity face, the 33-year old fashion designer will be appearing on the Bobbi Brown's advertisement campaign next spring. Either discussing her fashion line or her upcoming projects, Holmes revealed that her goal is to keep trying something new and not being afraid to fail.
Katie Holmes impressed buyers and editors at her first showing for label "Holmes & Yang," on Wednesday. The actress also announced that she will be the new face of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, beginning in Spring 2013.
"Who cares?" Holmes said. "At least you tried. It's usually the people who haven't tried who are the naysayers," the actress added. Katie Holmes is obviously excited as she tries to integrate herself and learn from the tight-knit New York fashion industry especially when she is visiting store buyers for the first time.
"When you go in and you show your clothing, you think that they're going to buy the whole collection," Holmes shared with a laugh to Women's Wear Daily. "And when they don't, you're like, 'What do you mean? It all goes together. So what do we do with this?' So that was new, but I think that's kind of a life thing 'What, you don't want all of me?'" the actress shared.
Meanwhile, Katie Holmes' deal with Bobbi Brown came about two months ago after being introduced by a mutual friend. "We bonded," Brown shared to Women's Wear Daily. "And then it was, 'Oh my God, you would be the perfect face for Bobbi.' We weren't looking for a celebrity, just a cool, amazing woman who would fit with our brand. And she's just ridiculously naturally beautiful," Brown further added.
According to reports, the Holmes and Brown partnership is estimated to be worth $2-$3 million. In 2013, Katie Holmes' name will appear on a capsule collection of color cosmetics. "This is my first foray into beauty products and the evolution of a look," Holmes said. The actress shares an easygoing style philosophy as well as a Midwest upbringing with Brown, who made her name with her clean and easy-to-use products.
This beauty contract will definitely mark another step to success for Katie Holmes as she builds her foundation in the fashion and style industry.
