Katie Holmes struck a few sexy poses for the photographers as she made her way to the 56th annual Drama Desk awards at Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC Monday night.
Holmes looked ravishing in electric purple as she glided into the event. The actress wasn't nominated, but she was there to support her fellow thespians.
The Drama Desk was created to "explore key issues of the theater community" and actually helped launch the careers of many successful actors and playwrights. Dustin Hoffman even signed onto The Graduate just days after receiving his 1966 DD award.
Will Katie consider settling in NYC and going back to theater?
