Extreme makeover

Filed on December 3, 2007

Katie Holmes' amazing makeover continues with sleek new bob. In recent months, she's been accused of morphing into her husband with her cropped hairstyle.

exYet Katie Holmes' sleek new bob - complete with this season's must-have fringe - seems to be inspired more by her 18-month-old daughter's mop of hair than that of husband Tom Cruise.

The actress showed off her glamorous new look while attending an award ceremony in Germany to honour her spouse.

Wearing a tight-fitting shoulderless black gown and a sequined bolero, the statuesque Holmes smiled for the cameras as her and Cruise posed on the red carpet.

While Cruise's second wife Nicole Kidman joked after they separated that she could now wear high heels, the dimunitive Cruise seemed happy to let his statuesque third wife tower over him.

In recent years Holmes has transformed herself into one of Hollywood's most admired fashion icons with her effortless style.

If she doesn't owe her latest hairstyle to daughter Suri - perhaps she was attempting a hairdo which combines close friend Victoria Beckham's bob with Kate Moss's fringe?

Or maybe she's harking back to the look of tinseltown's original queen of the black bobbed look, Louise Brooks?

Cruise, who has spent most of the year filming in Germany, was being honoured at the annual Bambi Awards in Duesseldorf which pays tribute to those in the world of entertainment, literature, sport and politics.

Considered the most powerful celebrity in Hollywood, insiders say Cruise's role in film Rubicon (formerly known as Valkyrie) could finally win him the elusive Academy Award.

The World War II thriller is about a group of German officers plot to kill Hitler.

Other attendees at the star-studded event included Desperate Housewives' actress Eva Longoria, singer Rihanna and 73-year-old Italian actress Sophia Loren who surely must be the world's sexiest septuagenarian.
