She looked a far cry from her conservative Dawson’s Creek character Joey Potter in a fresh ad campaign for a popular brand of jewellery.

Katie Holmes defied her apparent penchant for oversized clothing in a new promotion of H Stern jewellery as she posed in accessories while wearing little clothing.

The 33-year-old bared almost all while sporting a large dangling gold necklace, a variety of earrings, including diamond jewellery, and a beaded ring.

Tom Cruise’s wife proved she was model material, as photographers grasped her high cheekbones and tantalising physique to bring edge to the campaign.

In one snap, the Batman Begins star posed with her bra straps hanging down her arms, while her hand rested on her shoulder to reveal her cleavage.

In recent years, audiences have become used to considering Holmes the mother to Suri and wife of Cruise, rather than a budding actress in her own right.

However, it seems the beauty is on course to accelerate a little of her former self as she might inspire women in search of online jewellery.
