On Wednesday evening, Katie Holmes continued to prove that, yes, there is life after divorce when she stepped out for a dinner date with a friend in New York.

The 33-year-old actress — who settled her divorce from her husband of five and a half years, Tom Cruise, on Monday — brought a mix of casual and chic to her style as she made her way about town, donning a cream-colored blazer, black leather pants, heels and hardly a touch of makeup.

It’s just the latest New York sighting of the former Dawson’s Creek star; just yesterday, Holmes took her six-year-old daughter, Suri, to Chelsea Piers, where she was accompanied by her mother, Kathleen.

Holmes — who is set to play a single mother in the upcoming movie Molly — filed for divorce from Cruise on June 29, in a move that reportedly left him blindsided.

The divorce was quickly settled 10 days later, on July 9. Details remain confidential; however, it is said that Holmes has received custody of Suri, while Cruise has been given generous visitation rights.

Holmes married Cruise in November 2006, only a few months after the couple welcomed Suri into the world.

Cruise is currently in California filming the sci-fi movie Oblivion.
