Transcript for Katie Holmes Speaks Out After Tom Cruise Divorce
And katie holmes just spoke out for the first time since her high-profile divorce from tom cruise. And if she thought she was rattled by all of the allegations swirling around, she doesn't seem to be. She is proving to be a triple-threat of her own. Actress, model and brand-new fashion designer. Abc's linsey davis has the latest. Reporter: She's newly single, back in the spotlight and trying on a new role for size. Katie holmes made her first official public appearance since her tabloid headline split from tom cruise at the ninth annual style awards. What an amazing night this has been. Reporter: A fitting venue, for the actress-turned-fashion designer. The 33-year-old who was one half of the holmes & yang clothing line, is now taking on cosmetics. In an exclusive interview with "women's wear daily" this week, holmes opens up about her latest venture. Collaborating on a line of beauty products. Holmes is lending her name to the collection of cosmetics and her face to a new ad campaign for bobby brown cosmetics. A brand that traditionally has not put a face on the product. Holmes has simultaneously taken on the world of retail. In the article, she describes her reactio buyers who rejected some of the pieces in her collection. That was new, she said. But I think that's kind of a life thing. What? You don't want all of me? That rejection certainly isn't stopping holmes and her stylist-turned-business partner, from revealing their fall line at new york's famed fashion week. She describes it as classic but with a tiny bit of a rock 'n' roll edge. Reporter: Holmes says the clothes are for real women that want to look pretty and have it be easy. Holmes admits things haven't been easy for her. But she tries to keep things in perspective. As she correctly pointed out, there's a lot of people who have a lot worse problems in the world. I think she's been an amazing, multifacetted woman. I don't think the public has seen all of the facets that are katie. Reporter: As far as where suri will be going to school, all holmes would say is they're finding out in due time. You can catch all of the style awards next friday. Don't think she's giving up acting. She will be on broadway in november. A new movie next year. She's keeping busy. We'll have a lot more tonight on "20/20," including confirmation for the first time from tom cruise's publicist, that he and that actress that they were allegedly auditioning, did date briefly. Looking forward to that. Now, our monthly mashup.
