Katie Holmes get the jump on Christmas cheer in a seasonal white coat… as she prepares to return to stage for first time in over a DECADE
The 43-year-old, who has a 16-year-old daughter called Suri by her ex-husband Tom Cruise, wrapped herself in a seasonally stylish white coat.
She modeled an elegantly pale pink turtleneck with matching slacks as she headed into Falconeri to indulge in a spot of retail therapy.

Katie’s latest sighting comes after news broke that she is about to return to the New York stage for the first time in over a decade.
Next February she will open off-Broadway in the role of a fictional movie star in The Wanderers by Anna Ziegler, Deadline reports.
The playwright’s previous show Photograph 51 ran in London with a cast led by Nicole Kidman – Katie’s predecessor as Tom Cruise’s ex-wife.
Her most recent appearance on the New York stage was in the 2012 Broadway run of Theresa Rebeck’s play Dead Accounts.

Katie starred in Dead Accounts opposite Norbert Leo Butz, the theater heartthrob who played the male lead in the original cast of Wicked.
She previously made her debut on the Great White Way in a star-studded revival of All My Sons by Arthur Miller in 2008.
Her glittering cast included such luminaries as The Crown actor John Lithgow, The Birdcage actress Dianne Wiest and Morning Glory sizzler Patrick Wilson.

While promoting her run in All My Sons, she gushed to NPR: ‘I always wanted to do a Broadway play – since I was a little girl.’
At the time she was still Mrs. Tom Cruise, and her global fame was touted as a box office draw for her first appearance on the New York stage.
‘I’ve really enjoyed having the opportunity to rehearse for this amount of time, to work on a character and discover more and more…every night is different,’ she said. ‘And just the whole experience of a live performance is incredibly different.’
