It's elementary, dear reader... Katie Holmes can look beautiful and elegant, despite a horrible run of fashion mishaps and grooming gaffes.
And when she does it, Tom Cruise's 32-year-old wife leaves others trailing in her wake, as these shots of her at the Chateau Marmont in LA today prove.
The luminous working mother was at the historic Hollywood spot to promote the new Spring/Summer collection she's been working on with US retailers Ann Taylor.

Holmes is the new much lauded face of the New York-based store, and is said to have had a strong influence upon the collection.
She's modelling a $98 blouse, and a skirt which will retail at around $120 - both are due to arrive in stores in the Summer, the accessories are also Ann Taylor.
Style director Kristen Rawson says the clothes range is inspired by the architecture of Mexico and the paintings of Frida Kahlo.

Rawson said: 'There are creamy separates, soft silks and colour-soaked dresses and tops, as well as a full accessory line.'
Holmes is undeniably a fabulous advertisement for the store.
She looks better than she has in a long while, with her last few appearances in the public eye raising eyebrows for her harried appearance or drab clothing.
Holmes is of course, a hard-working mum, and has been extra busy of late, with daughter Suri's big birthday fifth birthday the weekend before last .

The Kennedy's star threw a tea party at the family's Beverly Hills Mansion to mark the occasion.
Suri - who already developed quite expensive taste with $850 Ferragamo bags and $635 designer dresses at her disposal - held court at the head of the table at the outdoor celebration, according to reports.
She was joined by her siblings Connor, 18, and Isabella, 16, who watched on as she opened gifts.
Katie revealed her plans for the celebration two weeks earlier, saying: 'I kind of like to girl it up! This is my favourite day of the year.'
Harried: Holmes has looked hassled and drab on recent public jaunts
Despite the recent controversy and poor ratings for her mini-series The Kennedys, Katie is hoping for big screen success later this year with two new films due for release.
Firstly, she will appear in the cop thriller The Son Of No-One, which also stars Channing Tatum and Al Pacino.
And Katie has also recently filmed the comedy Jack and Jill - which sees co-star Adam Sandler playing male and female twins.Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1380976/Katie-Holmes-looks-stunning-launch-new-fashion-range-string-style-disasters.html#ixzz1Ki0OJBHm
I know about the pigeon-toed-supposed-to-make-you-look-longer-and-leaner-or-whatever thing. It doesn't. It makes her look like a four-year-old who can't control her feet.
