Many fashionistas were surprised to hear of the sudden demise of Holmes & Yang, Katie Holmes’s five-year-old clothing line with her stylist Jeanne Yang. Despite the line’s increasingly high profile, landing high-fashion spreads and and a spot at New York Fashion Week, the split had apparently been a long time coming.

At the time, insiders speculated about the reason Holmes and Yang ended their partnership, but the two key players were staying silent. Now, Holmes has spoken to Elle UK about the split. “I loved every minute of my time working on Holmes & Yang. I remain passionate about the design aesthetic we created, and am so happy with what Jeanne and I accomplished,” she said. “However I am now concentrating on acting and motherhood, which did not leave the label the time and attention it deserved. I’m really thrilled that the final showcase for Holmes & Yang is in Elle — I had a blast at my shoot for the magazine. It is fantastic to feel like it’s ending on a high.”

Yang declined to comment to PEOPLE, but last week, a source shared some insight with us. “They have different approaches to absolutely everything: how to run the company, how to promote it and how to handle the press,” the source said. “The conflict isn’t about any one thing, it’s sort of about everything.”

What do you think of Holmes’s explanation? Are you sorry to see Holmes & Yang go?

Katie Holmes's Clothing Line, Holmes & Yang, Is Finished

Katie Holmes can scratch “designer” off her résumé — for now, anyway. After five years of creating a fashion line with her stylist Jeanne Yang, the two have parted ways.

“The Holmes & Yang partnership has ended,” Holmes’s rep confirms.

The pair debuted their first collection in Los Angeles in 2009; they eventually showed a collection at New York Fashion Week in 2012, and their designs were worn by stars including Nicole Richie, Amy Adams and Olivia Wilde. Yang told PEOPLE in February 2013 that the goal of their line was comfort for their customers.

But the flourishing partnership apparently waned in recent months due to a variety of differences, says a source.

With the exception of one major haircut in 2009 (you may remember these bangs), Katie Holmes has always sported the same long, brown, center-parted locks appropriate to her “girl next door” status. But now she’s mixing things up a bit, instead going for “girl next door who just got home from college with something different but you can’t quite put your finger on it.” Yes, that’s right, she cut her hair.

Quick: What do you hope you look like at that holiday party where you know you’re going to see your dumb ex, and you want to look amazing? Glossy waves, flawless skin, perfect red lips and a killer dress? Well, you just described Katie Holmes‘s latest Bobbi Brown ads, if you’re looking for inspiration.

The star gives her best “sultry diva” pose for the line’s latest campaign. After her two previous looks (‘girl next door’ lovely and romantic night out), she traded neutral lips and pink cheeks for a knockout face that would stop any man in his tracks.

The first face of Bobbi Brown is all done up in the line’s Old Hollywood eye palette and glamorous black ink liner, but what we really want to talk about is those bloodred lips, courtesy of the Old Hollywood limited edition red lipstick. Brown says you swipe it on right out of the tube, but for Holmes’s precise look, use a lip brush and top it with lip liner.

What do you think of Holmes’s head-turning makeover?

Hey Katie Holmes, We Bet You Never Pictured Rihanna Wearing Your Clothes

Rihanna Wears Holmes & YangSplash News Online

By this point, few of us find any of Rihanna’s wardrobe choices surprising. Yet we have a feeling her latest ensemble might have taken at least one person by surprise: Katie Holmes.

The singer stepped out in Sydney over the weekend wearing a cropped moto jacket and matching suede trousers by Holmes’s fashion label, Holmes & Yang. And somehow, we don’t think RiRi was the consumer Holmes and her long-term stylist/design partner Jeanne Yang had in mind when creating their “comfortable” and “simple” pieces.

The Rihanna way to wear the suede separates: styling the coat as a crop top (naturally) and pulling her pants down to expose her black undies. The Holmes & Yang way (below): Pair the jacket with a black high-waisted pants and an ivory cami, and style the suede bottoms with a demure silk tie-front blouse, for a very classic, all-American vibe.

Which is why we imagine Katie Holmes wondering how her designs got into the hands of the risk-taking popstar, who usually favors looks like this and this. Read More
