New life, new look? Katie Holmes almost unrecognizable on Russian magazine cover

Those of us outside of Russia may never buy a Russian copy of Harper's Bazaar, but thanks to the magic of the Internet, we can still see how Katie Holmes looks on the cover of the October 2012 issue. And she looks ... sleekly glamorous and almost unrecognizable.

"America's Top Model" fans should take note -- Holmes was photographed for the Russian edition by fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon, who's been a guest photographer on that show.

And he did a stunning, if somewhat shocking, job. Holmes, 33, is always pretty, but this cover takes Tom Cruise's ex-wife to a different level. No Joey from "Dawson's Creek" here. With smokey eyeshadow, nude lipcolor, and long wavy hair, she looks like a different woman.

New life, new look?
