Katie Holmes rocked a casual look as she landed at Nice airport on Wednesday ahead of the 76th annual Cannes Film Festival
The Dawson’s Creek actress, 44, kept it comfy in a long tan coat, which she pulled over a pale pink polo shirt.
She completed the look by adding a splash of color with bold red pants and opted for relaxed footwear with a pair of Adidas shoes.
The laid-back ensemble anticipates what will no doubt be a few glamorous days for the iconic ’90s beauty.
Katie’s look was age-defying as she showed off her toned face with minimal glowing makeup and added just a few shades for a sunny week in France.

Katie was married to Tom Cruise between 2006 and 2012. The couple has a daughter, Suri.
In March, Suri, 17, began applying to colleges with her mother’s help — but the teen’s famous father, Tom Cruise, won’t help her because the actor “plays no part” in his child’s life.
A source close to Holmes told the DailyMail.com in March that Suri “has sent out some applications” and “tends to” study fashion in NYC, a choice that her style-conscious mother, Katie, would be very pleased to make.
However, the source noted that while Tom won’t help Suri choose where she goes to school, he will pay her tuition, according to his top-secret divorce agreement with Holmes.
While Katie is taking an active role in helping her daughter apply for college, the teen’s father, Mission Impossible star Tom, 60, will have no part in the process — he has been estranged from his daughter since 2013, a year after he and Katie divorced.
At the time of their split, it was reported that Katie had chosen to end the couple’s marriage for fear of raising her daughter to be a Scientologist – a religion to which Tom is incredibly devoted.
Her decision to leave the religion and marriage caused a major rift between the former spouses, resulting in the relationship between Tom and Suri becoming more and more distant over the years.

The insider explained that Tom “plays no part in (Suri’s) life” – after it was previously revealed that the pair hadn’t seen each other in years.
Tom disagreed that his religion caused him to become estranged from Suri.
In 2013, Tom sued In Touch magazine for $50 million when the outlet reported that he had “abandoned” his daughter.
When the case went to court, Tom said he couldn’t see Suri because of his busy work schedule.
Tom and Katie were among the most iconic couples of the early 2000s; after a year of dating, they married in November 2006 in a lavish ceremony in Italy.
The Dawson’s Creek actress filed for divorce from him six years later, citing irreconcilable differences.
According to their divorce papers, Tom agreed to pay Katie $400,000 a year until Suri turned 18 years old.
The documents also state that Tom agreed to pay for all of Suri’s expenses, including “medical, dental, insurance, education, college, and other extracurricular costs.”

However, the Mission Impossible actor is not present in Suri’s life.
Tom reportedly hasn’t seen Suri in over 10 years, but he does have a close relationship with the two children he shares with Nicole Kidman, Isabella, 30, and Connor, 28.
Nicole – who filed for divorce in 2001 after 11 years of marriage due to Tom’s Scientology ties – has not spoken to Tom in nearly 20 years.
