Katie Holmes is hotter than ever.

Only eight months after her divorce from Tom Cruise, the 34-year-old mom is gracing the cover of Allure magazine… topless.

The former Dawson’s Creek star, wearing nothing but makeup, looks effortlessly beautiful as the magazine’s April cover girl.

"I wanted her makeup to look sexy and slept in," says Dotti, the makeup artist for the shoot. Mission accomplished— Katie looks H-O-T.

In the mag, on stands March 26, the actress opens up about her multiple projects and what’s in store for the upcoming year.

Besides starring in the Broadway show Dead Accounts from Nov. 2012- Jan. 2013, Katie is also the face for the Bobbi Brown cosmetics Spring 2013 line.  "I've been a fan of her makeup for so many years, because I just feel comfortable putting it on," Katie says. "And I don't feel like I can screw it up."

And now that Katie’s stint on stage is over and she's focusing on new ventures, there have been talks of the brunette beauty heading to law school to follow in her family’s footsteps.

So is there any truth to the rumors?
"Well, my brother and father are attorneys, and—we'll see. I like the practical thinking of attorneys," she replied to the new reports. It doesn’t sound like a no to us!

 It's safe to say Katie is definitely back in the game. Regardless of what project should next arise, this is one starlet who's ready to knock it out of the park.
