Katie Holmes living la dolce vita with a VIP pass to Milan Fashion Week

Tom and Katie: Love in the fast lane

It's where she first made her debut as Tom Cruise's plus one and where the couple married.

So Katie Holmes always gets a thrill out of coming back to Italy.

Apart from the opportunity for a trip down memory lane, there's always the delicious cuisine and the shopping.

And during this week's trip to mark her new role – as the 2011 MaxMara Face of the Future, given to recipients for their style and taste – the actress said she fully intended to indulge in some retail therapy.

In particular, added the mother-of-one, she had her eyes open for something for her four-year-old, Suri – arguably the best dressed little girl in Hollywood.

Sitting front row at the Italian fashion house's Milan Fashion Week show, the 32-year-old looked elegant in a classic camel coat over a brown silk one-shouldered jumpsuit.

"It's so soft and comfortable. I love their clothes," enthused Katie, who was accompanied by her mum.

The stylish brunette seemed particularly impressed with the brand's autumn/winter 2011 collection.

Inspired by classic British wardrobe staples – from the parka and the duffel coat to the biker jacket – the collection featured strapless dresses in sequin-embellished tartan.

For the evening, there were strapless jumpsuits and fringed ball gowns.

It was created for the cool, contemporary woman – epitomised, said MaxMara's British designer Ian Griffiths, by Katie, whose style he described as 'chic and modern'.

Elsewhere in Milan, Prada presented a sexy collection inspired by the Twenties and the Sixties – two of designer Miuccia Prada's favourite decades.

And Italian duo Dominico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana showcased an 'alphabet' collection for their young D&G label.

Letters were painted on the catwalk and the backdrop, appeared as jewellery, and also featured on skirts and boyfriend blazers.
