Katie Holmes poses in bra to show off stretch marks in unedited Instagram post

Katie Holmes is celebrating her spread in Vogue Australia by sharing new, behind-the-scene shots of her photoshoot last week.

The unedited snapshots depict the 40-year-old actress posing in just a bra, blazer and trousers while proudly showing off her stretch marks on her stomach. It's a move that's been hailed by Holmes' Instagram followers as both brave and bold for the star's choice to forgo Photoshopping the lines.

"It is wonderful to be working today with such amazing women!" Holmes captions the two-photograph post, much to the applause of her 2 million Instagram followers. Her "pregnancy warrior marks" are visible in the second photo.

"Love how beautiful and natural you are with your body. You aren’t afraid to show your body exactly how it is," wrote one fan. Said another, "So bold!! I love that you’re slightly showing the pregnancy warrior marks. You go girl!!!!"

The mom-of-one most recently earned a place on our street style radar after photos emerged of her hailing a taxi in late August wearing one of fall's biggest trends, a cashmere bralette and cardigan set by Khaite. The look caused such a frenzy that the barley set promptly sold out, but it's back in stock, along with other colors, on the designer's website.
