- On Friday afternoon, ahead of the long weekend, Katie Holmes treated her Instagram followers to a rare selfie.
- The actress' latest picture perfectly sets the Memorial Day Weekend #mood. In it, she grins coyly at the camera (a smile that definitely harkens back to her iconic Dawson's Creek character, Joey Potter), while backlit by a shining sunburst.
- Appropriately, Katie captioned the photo with six sun emojis—and nothing else.
You've heard the old saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words," right? Well, when it comes to Katie Holmes' sparse, artsy AF Instagram, a picture is worth a thousand words—and no fewer than six emojis.
On Friday, the actress geared up for the holiday weekend by adding a rare selfie to her Insta grid and she captioned the new addition with a simple string of expressive little emojis: "☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️."
Six sunbursts are exactly the right caption for Katie's new picture, which is her sun-shiniest selfie of all time. In fact, it might crack the top ten list of the most sun-shiniest selfies of all time ever, among all humans. In the photo, Katie is flashing a sly, close-mouthed Joey Potter-esque grin while backlit by an IRL sunburst that puts all six of her emojis to shame.

Katie doesn't do a ton of tagging on Instagram, but there is a telling tag embedded in this photo. The actress tagged Maison Mayle, the clothing brand behind the classically low-key look she's sporting in the photo. Admittedly, all we can see in the photo is the color of Katie's pink and white button-down top. Also admittedly, we don't need to see any more of the outfit to know that A.) it's perfect and B.) we're obsessed.
