Alone time is magical too! Smiling Katie Holmes is footloose and fancy-free in New York while Suri and Tom enjoy Disney World
00:52 GMT, 4 August 2012
Katie Holmes seems to be in a really good place, right now.
Her ex-husband Tom Cruise and their six-year-old daughter Suri may be in the trademarked 'most magical place on Earth' but for Katie, 33, there's clearly nowhere better than Manhattan when she's free of commitments.
So happy right now: Katie Holmes looked delirious with joy as she chatted on the phone while doing errands in Manhattan today
The former Dawson's Creek star is currently more footloose and fancy free than she has been in years.
Ever since meeting and falling pregnant to Tom Cruise, 50, in fact.
And while there's no doubting her
devotion to Suri, the actress seemed to be enjoying alone time today
as she floated around Chelsea doing errands.
Katy, who was wearing a casual denim dress, cream cardigan and her hair loose and bed-rubbed pretty, beamed as she chatted into her phone, which had a floral cover encasing it.
Important call: Perhaps Katy is on the phone to a stylist, she needs one judging by her look here
The Holmes and Yang designer didn't look
like someone you'd want style advice from in her raggedy attire, but
the sheer luminosity of her smile made her look more beautiful than when
she was trussed up in designer clothes on the red carpet with Cruise.
Clearly for Katie, a day without the restrictions of being Mrs Tom Cruise or even a doting mommy is quite the novelt, still.
If as some cynics are to believed, Tom is waging a PR war with his very public fun making, perhaps Katie is hitting back with these gleeful poses.
Free time: Katy is getting things done while Suri is out of town with her father, Tom
She certainly looked glum earlier in the week as the first shots of Tom and their daughter having a wonderful time leaked from the Florida theme park.
Katie is working up to a career renaissance as the Batman Begins star is soon to star on Broadway as Lorna in Dead Accounts.
Since the shock announcement of Katie's divorce from Tom there has been plenty of speculation about what went wrong in their five-year marriage.
Catching up on gossip Katie was animated during her telephone conversation
Manhattan is her oyster: Katie is free for he first time in years
It's all go: Katie seemed to receive an interesting text or email, too
But according to a mutual friend of the couple it wasn't that they fell out of love.
In fact Rock Of Ages director Adam Shankman, who worked with Cruise on his film earlier this year, told Ryan Seacrest that the couple 'love each other'.
'They are doing great,' Shankman said when Seacrest asked how the former couple were coping.
'They actually love each other so much and believe in each other, and I love them both and I wish them both well.'
