Katie Holmes is back and boy oh' boy are we happy to see her return with vengeance. Appearing on the cover of Allure Magazine since her messy divorce from Tom Cruise, the 34-year-old Holmes looks uber sexy with dark brown eyeliner and mascara and a glowing (and we mean glowing) complexion.

The actress opens up to the beauty magazine about becoming the face of Bobbi Brown, living in New York City -- the paparazzi that follow her, and plans for the future. When asked when she might want to expand her family, Holmes replied, "I don't know, I'm open to it." One thing is clear, Holmes has no plans of slowing down. From on-stage performances to movies and more spokesperson gigs, Katie has a plan. "Well, my brother and father are attorneys, and – we'll see. I like the practical thinking of attorneys," said Katie.

We know whatever Katie does next, the world will be watching. Whether she chooses to remain private or re-enters the spotlight, we are certainly ready for more of Katie Holmes.
