Katie Holmes is to be the first ever face of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics.

The former 'Dawson's Creek' actress - who recently finalised her divorce with Tom Cruise after five years of marriage - is believed to have penned a deal with the brand, although representatives for both parties have not yet confirmed the development.

On Sunday (09.09.12), Katie's fashion range Holmes & Yang, which she founded with Jeanne Yang in 2009, will have its showing at New York Fashion Week, and the 33-year-old actress is said to be keen to make a big impression.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: ''This is a big deal for Katie to show in the tents, under the full attention of The Fashion Editors and the glare of the media scrutiny.

''They could have done a small show elsewhere, so this proves she and Jeanne are very serious about their business.''

The ready-to-wear line is stocked in exclusive boutiques including Barneys in New York and Harvey Nichols in London.
