Katie Holmes Dons Red Leather For The Tonight Show With Jay Leno

Remember Joey Potter? Remember how she used to wear those really quaint blouse 'n' denim combos on Dawson's Creek while talking about, like, really deep stuff with her fellow over-eloquent teenage chums? Well, ladies and gentleman, it seems that Katie Holmes has well and truly put her alter ego to bed.
