Who knew Katie Holmes could rock a bold, red lip so beautifully?

The actress, 34, puts Us in the holiday spirit as the face of Bobbi Brown's Old Hollywood collection campaign. Dressed in a festive, red, lace cutout dress by Fabiola Arias, Tom Cruise's ex looks fierce and flawless in the retro-styled holiday ad campaign.

Holmes, who is usually spotted wearing minimal makeup while running errands in Manhattan (where the actress lives with daughter Suri, 7), completely transforms in the holiday ad campaign. The Romantics leading lady looks exceptionally stunning with a bold, retro rouge hue swiped across her lips, her shiny brunette locks tumbling in large waves, as she gives a fierce stare in to the camera lens with her hands on hips.

Holmes, who has her own clothing line Holmes & Yang, recently expanded her contract with Bobbi Brown by debuting a cosmetic collaboration with the beauty brand, called Bobbi & Katie. (She has been a brand ambassador for the company since 2012.)

These days, the Dawson's Creek alum is currently filming The Giver in South Africa alongside Taylor Swift, Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, and Alexander Skarsgard. Relatively new to Twitter (Holmes joined on Oct. 25), She has been sharing photos and tweets from the set.
