Suits you: Katie Holmes on the set of her Ann Taylor Spring/Summer ad in Pasadena, California
Katie Holmes may be struggling to impress in her acting career but the star had no such trouble on the set of her latest fashion shoot.
The Dawson's Creek star was recently unveiled as the new celebrity face of up scale women's work wear brand Ann Taylor and dazzles in the newly released behind-the-scenes shots from the campaign.
The mother-of-one, and wife of actor Tom Cruise, looks like a supermodel in the sultry pictures for the Spring/Summer 2011 campaign, taken last month.
In one shot Katie wears a tailored tuxedo trouser suit with smokey eye make-up and wavy locks.
In another she slides a casual jacket off her shoulder to reveal a shiny silver top and white high-waisted skirt as a wind machine is used to blow her hair.
The shoot itself took place in the garden of a private residence in Pasadena, California.
Katie posed in front of Cherry blossom trees and vine covered walls during the romantic shoot.

'She's stylish and photographs beautifully,' Samantha Yanks, Editor in chief of Gotham Magazine told Popeater.
'What you find with her style is that she embraces uniform dressing. It's a simple formula that she uses: a monochromatic palette made up of pieces that have an elegance and ease to them. '
'That's the very essence of Ann Taylor. She embodies the brand. The pairing doesn't come as a surprise at all.'
The success of the shoot comes in the wake of a difficult week for the star who became embroiled in a drama surrounding her new film The Son Of No One.

A trade writer falsely wrote that there was a 'mass exodus' from the films official screening at the Sundance Film Festival on Monday.
Daily Mail film writer Baz Bamigboye said: 'I was at the screening at the Yarrow Hotel on Monday and such claims are lies and were penned to damage the actress' professional reputation.'
As a result of the reports the actress, who has a small supporting role in the film, was said to be in two minds about attending the world première on Friday.
This is the second issue for the actress in recent weeks after her mini series The Kennedy's was shelved by the History Channel at the last minute for historical inaccuracies.
