Katie Holmes has really elevated her style game in the weeks since news of her split with long-term boyfriend Jamie Foxx broke. Last night, the actress was out in Manhattan for the Nordstrom NYC store opening party. She looked fantastic in a long-sleeved black mini dress that she paired with sheer black polka dot tights and a red lip.

And here's the LBD Holmes wore (I'm almost certain!):

Holmes went to two events last night: Nordstrom NYC's VIP opening party and the La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club 2019 Gala.

This isn't Holmes' only outfit that has gotten attention of late. The actress's wardrobe throughout fashion week in September included some of her best outfits of the year. Holmes wore a monochromatic royal blue suit:

Holmes' split from Jamie Foxx was first reported at the end of August, although they actually separated in May. PeopleUs Weekly, and Entertainment Tonight each got quotes from sources at the time, explaining what led to Holmes ending things with Foxx after six years of dating.

“It has been many years of him stepping out with other women,” Us' source said. “He’s disrespectful, and their lives were different. His partying ways don’t fit with hers as she’s focused on raising her daughter [Suri Cruise] and working.”


Entertainment Tonight's source claimed distance was a factor: Holmes is based in New York City, and Foxx lives in LA. "They never had a typical relationship," the source said. "They have always been incredibly independent, and their lives didn't revolve around each other. They lived separately and in different cities and saw each other occasionally."

People's source painted a much more neutral picture of the situation. “It ran its course," a source said. "This industry is very tough on relationships. Jamie thinks Katie is an incredible human being. They had a very, very deep connection. They brought each other a lot of joy and laughter.”
