Disappearing act: Katie Holmes has been putting on a brave face but showed off her rail-thin figure after splitting from Tom Cruise
She has been putting on a brave face since her split from husband Tom Cruise last week. But despite her smiling exterior the strain of Katie Holmes' break-up is showing itself in other ways - most notably her rail-thin body.
The actress failed to hide her shrinking frame when she spent the day with her and Tom's only child, daughter Suri.
The 33-year-old's blue and orange halterneck top clearly displayed her bony back and angular collarbone and her blue jeans seemed to hang off her.
Her outing came as Tom's lawyer lashed out at Katie and her legal team, accusing them of 'playing the media'.

High profile lawyer Bert Fields spoke to BBC Radio 1's Newsbeat. He would not be drawn on specific details of the divorce - but did stick the knife in and insisted Tom was 'really sad about what's happening'.
He said: 'We are letting ‘the other side’ [Katie's camp] play the media until they wear everyone out and then we’ll have something to say.'
Fields went on: 'Tactically we can’t say where Tom will file a divorce case and if he’ll be seeking joint custody of Suri.
'It’s not Tom’s style to do this publicly. He is really sad about what’s happening.'

While Katie attempted a steely resolve today, Suri Cruise looked tired and strained by the emotional custody battle her parents are to embark on.
The six-year-old is currently dealing with the news that her parents are set for a high-profile divorce.
Katie held her daughter tenderly in her arms during a trip with friends - and of course security - to the Children's Museum of the Arts in the Soho area of New York City.
Little Suri, dressed in a pink dress and holding onto a cuddly toy, clung to her actress mother.

Yesterday, Katie - who filed for divorce from the Hollywood star last week - spent American holiday Independence Day as a single mother for the first time.
The Dawson's Creek beauty was seen at Wholefoods supermarket near her Chelsea apartment stocking up on food supplies.
Making her way to the store, dressed casually in a denim shirt and a floral summery skirt, the mother-of-one looked feminine and pretty as she skipped along with Suri, who was in the same multi-coloured poppy dress she was in the night before.
Inside the market, Suri rode in the front of the shopping cart playing with a pale pink cowboy hat, with Katie photographing her wearing it.

The mother and daughter duo were accompanied by one of Katie's bodyguards from her top heavy security team.
During the outing Katie reassured fans that she is coping following the split from the Hollywood star.
Approached as she stocked up on food, Katie told a New York Daily News reporter: 'I'm alright. Thank you.'
Meanwhile it emerged today that Katie has been secretly planning her divorce assault for several weeks with the help of her father Martin Holmes.
