She’s a master of putting together stylish ensembles as temperatures drop.
And Katie Holmes didn’t disappoint on Tuesday when she showed off an elegant double-breasted houndstooth overcoat while strolling with her boyfriend Emilio Vitolo Jr. in New York City.
The 41-year-old actress and the 33-year-old chef linked arms and bared smiles that even their masks couldn’t hide.

Underneath her coat, Katie had on a cropped beige turtleneck with a frayed collar that she left unfurled and long sleeves that nearly swallowed up her hands.
The 5ft9in Dawson’s Creek star also wore a simple pair of jeans with black boots.
She rounded out her ensemble with a dark brown handbag that was slung over her shoulder, and she wore her dark tresses tied into a ponytail.
Emilio had on a more muted look with a charcoal overcoat atop a gray ribbed sweater, along with dark jeans and gray–blue suede shoes.

Trip for two: The two visited a museum before taking a romantic stroll through Washington Square Park in Lower Manhattan
Both Katie and Emilio wore black masks to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, which has been surging to alarming levels throughout the United States.
The two did their best to social distance while catching up on some culture with a trip to a museum.
Later, the lovebirds couldn’t keep their hands off each other during a romantic stroll through Washington Square Park in Lower Manhattan.
‘Tis the season: Katie was ready for the holiday season and posted a photo of a Christmas tree from Emilio’s restaurant Emilio’s Ballato, which his father owns
The couple appeared to be getting into the holiday spirit, as Katie shared a holiday-themed photo to her Insta Stories later in the day from inside Emilio’s restaurant.
She posted a photo of a decorated Christmas tree on top of a counter in one of the restaurant’s windows, which she soundtracked to Michael Bublé’s version of It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas.
She had the refrain type out along with the music while tagging her boyfriend and his brother Anthony, the executive chef at their restaurant Emilio’s Ballato.
The restaurant is owned by their father, Emilio Vitolo Sr., who is known for occupying a table close to the door and determining at which table people will be seated and in what order.
Despite the insular style, plenty of celebrities have been drawn to the restaurant’s classic Italian dishes, including former President Barack Obama, Hollywood stars Tom Hanks and Bradley Cooper, and pop superstars Justin Bieber and Rihanna.

New romance: Katie and Emilio reportedly met for the first time last year, though it wasn’t until September that they launched their relationship
Katie and Emilio reportedly met for the first time last year, though it wasn’t until September that they launched their relationship.
The Batman Begins star’s approach to romance seems to have not endeared her to Emilio’s mother Lourdes, as Page Six reported in October that she was upset by their relationship.
DailyMail.com confirmed exclusively on September 10 that Emilio broke off his previous engagement with his live-in fiancée Rachel Emmons, 24, via text when handsy photos of him and Katie were first published.
The handbag designer, who had been engaged to the restaurateur for 18 months, was left shocked and scrambling and had to move back home.

‘[Lourdes] thinks she brought him up better than that,’ an insider said. ‘She didn’t like how [Emilio] handled this at all.’
However, another source painted a less rosy portrait of Vitolo and Emmons’ relationship.
‘He and his fiancée were taking it slow, and it wasn’t working out,’ they said.
According to them, someone like Katie is more his speed.
‘He likes older women,’ they continued. ‘He dated an older anchor at Fox, and others, so he has a history with older women.’
Moving on: Katie previously secretly dated Jamie Foxx in 2013, following her 2012 divorce, but they split in 2019 shortly after going public as a couple; shown in May 2019
Holmes and Jamie Foxx, 52, previously split last May, after they began a discreet relationship back in 2013.
The exes had only just made their first official red carpet debut as a couple at last year’s Met Gala in May.
Another insider told Us Weekly last month: ‘Katie has no ill will toward Jamie, but she has completely moved on from him and just thinks of Jamie in a friend type of way now.’
They also revealed that she ‘is happy she can be free and comfortable with her relationship with Emilio and doesn’t need for it to be private, like her past relationship with Jamie Foxx was.’
Holmes and Foxx’s relationship came after she was married to his pal Tom Cruise, 58, from 2006 to 2012, sharing daughter Suri.
