Katie Holmes wore an all-leather outfit that was the opposite of skin tight while walking through midtown Manhattan on Tuesday night. The 43-year-old actress donned an oversized black button-down shirt with gold details. The long sleeves went just over her hands, with her red manicure peeking out from the cuffs. Under the shirt, she wore flared leather pants over a pair of silver pointed heels.

Holmes was carrying a black handbag with red lining and left her hair down over her shoulders. She was in natural makeup with a light pink lip.
