Katie Holmes is proving to be a creature of habit when it comes to her wardrobe.
On Wednesday the 42-year-old Dawson’s Creek actress was spotted in a nearly identical denim outfit she wore on Tuesday, as she strolled through NYC with boyfriend Emilio Vitolo Jr., 33.
Feeling the Canadian tuxedo look this week, Holmes walked arm and arm with her restaurateur beau – who has gotten the seal of approval from Katie’s friends – as she switched up her sneakers for a bit of variety.
Sporting a multi-wash denim blazer that looked to be made from upcycled pairs of jeans, Katie flexed her downtown style.
She matched the jacket with a pair of bootcut jeans and threw on a pair of metallic sneakers.
Holmes went makeup free for the outing and kept her brown hair tied back in a low ponytail.
The Emilio’s Ballato chef kept it classic in a black wool coat and a pair of black jeans with stylish black boots, and they both wore matching face masks.
The couple of five months have been spending a lot of time with each other as of late, with Vitolo even making the relationship Instagram official on her birthday.
Merging their circles in recent months, Emilio has gotten the seal of approval from her daughter Suri, 14, and reportedly ‘adores’ her, and Holmes has been spotted dining at his Italian restaurant with Vitolo’s father.
A source told ET on Tuesday that she has even introduced him to her circle of friends and they are ‘obsessed with him.’
Though it was initially reported that those close to her had ‘some concern’ about the seriousness of the relationship, it seems Vitolo has started to win her friends and family over.
Bringing her actor-chef beau to an outdoor dinner on the Upper East side recently, she was able to introduce her new love to her friends, as he received high marks all around.
Reportedly her friends think he is ‘the most charismatic man she’s ever been with.’
‘He’s so funny and confident and gets along with everyone. Best of all, he is so attentive and affectionate towards Katie,’ the insider shared.
The relationship started off on precarious terms as Vitolo was engaged at the time photos of he and the Batman Begins actress kissing surfaced, prompting him to end the engagement via text.
‘Instead of a few dates over an extended period of time, they were able to have a month’s worth of dates in a matter of days,’ which only strengthened their bond.
Sam Allardyce will receive a six-figure bonus for every place West Bromwich Albion finish above 18th in the Premier League, due to an extraordinary contract that could earn him up to £10million in 18 months at the club.
In a complex deal, the new manager’s remuneration package is directly linked to his side’s finishing position, with Allardyce to receive a percentage of the club’s Premier League prize money if they avoid relegation on top of pay for keeping them up.
The value of Allardyce’s contract is capped at £10m if he hits every performance target, although he has not made the immediate impact West Brom were hoping for since being appointed last month, taking one point from three matches and angering some players with public criticism.
Former Burnley chairman Mike Garlick has secured a guarantee that the club will revert to his ownership if ALK Capital default on the terms of their takeover.
The Delaware-based sport and media investment group bought a controlling 84 per cent stake in Burnley last month but the £150million takeover is due to be paid in three staged payments, much of which is contingent upon borrowing. Garlick will regain control if there are issues with any of the subsequent payments and has also retained his place on the board — although ALK managing director Alan Pace has replaced him as chairman.
Clarke explains his gaffes
Former chairman Greg Clarke has written to some FA Board members offering an explanation for the disgraceful comments which led to him resigning last November.
While not seeking to excuse his use of dated language and racist stereotypes, and conceding it was unacceptable, Clarke is understood to have told his former colleagues he was exhausted and unwell, due to the stress of dealing with the fallout from the Project Big Picture row, and was not in a fit state to appear before the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport committee where he made his gaffes.
Ironically, Clarke did much to promote the cause of achieving greater racial equality during his time at the FA, pushing through the governing body’s new Football Leadership Diversity Code and nominating Paul Elliott to become the first black member of the FA Board.
The Premier League’s move to tighten up their Covid-19 protocols extends to their VAR hub and broadcasting operation at Stockley Park, in addition to clubs’ stadiums and training grounds. From next week, all visitors to Stockley Park will be required to wear surgical masks that they will be provided with, rather than being permitted to bring their own facial protection, which has been the case since the site re-opened last June.
Saudi boost to Newcastle bid
Broadcaster beIN Sports have held positive talks with the Saudi Arabian government about lifting their ban on broadcasting there — which could help revive the Public Investment Fund’s proposed takeover of Newcastle that was blocked by the Premier League last summer.
The Premier League is BeIN Sports’ biggest offering and they extended their contract for the Middle East and North Africa region in a £367million deal last month, despite currently having their signalled blocked in Saudi Arabia.
Saudi’s decision to end their three-year blockade of Qatar earlier this month has led to progress in the long-running TV dispute, however, and a return to legal broadcasting would remove a key part of the Premier League’s opposition to the Newcastle bid.

French motorcycle rider Pierre Cherpin has died five days after being involved in a horror crash during the seventh stage of the Dakar Rally, organisers said on Friday.
The 52-year-old amateur, who was taking part unassisted in his fourth Dakar rally, had undergone neurosurgery and was placed in a medically induced coma after the crash in the Saudi Arabian desert.
'During his transfer by medical plane from Jeddah to France, Pierre Cherpin died from the injuries caused by his fall during the seventh stage from Ha'il to Sakaka on Jan. 10,' organisers said in a statement.
'The driver crashed at km 178, around 1:00pm. Doctors found him unconscious when they reached him by helicopter. Taken to Sakaka’s hospital, the medical report revealed a severe head trauma with loss of consciousness.'
He was the first fatality this year in an event that has claimed many lives since the first Paris-Dakar rally was held in 1978.
Two motorcycle riders died after falls in last year's rally, Portugal's Paulo Goncalves during competition and Dutchman Edwin Straver some days later as a result of his injuries.
The famous endurance event takes place over two weeks with 322 entrants taking part in a wide range of vehicles including bikes, trucks, cars and quad bikes.
Organisers said Cherpin was found unconscious after being reached by the medical helicopter.
After surgery he was airlifted from Sakaka to hospital in Jeddah, from where he was being flown to the French city of Lille.
A two-time finisher of the event, that ended in Jeddah on Friday, Cherpin had been 77th overall on the eve of his accident.
'I am an amateur, I don't want to win but to discover landscapes that I would never have had the opportunity to see otherwise,' he had said before the event.
'Everything is exciting: riding the bike, living out your passion, getting to know yourself.'
