FOR months, she has looked tired, drawn and much older than her 30 years. But Katie Holmes silenced every critic last week after pulling off a stunning transformation for the Japanese premiere of Tom Cruise's film Valkyrie. Now it has emerged that for Mrs Cruise, beauty indeed comes at a price. The mother-of-one is said to have splashed out 30,000 pounds on the incredible makeover, which took more than two days to execute. While holed up at the Ritz-Carlton in Tokyo ahead of the red carpet appearance, Katie was reportedly treated to intensive pampering sessions by a team of beauty experts. It took six hours to have long hair extensions put in, which came with a 2,000 pounds price tag, according to a US publication. She also apparently spent 7,000 pounds in spa treatments, 20,000 pounds in dental veneers and further 1,000 pounds for premium make-up. It certainly gave the actress back her sparkle, which seemed to have faded in recent times as the result of a rumoured Scientology detox. For Katie, the pricey makeover was money well spent. "She was happier than she's been in months," a source told America's InTouch magazine. And fans were impressed too, with one observer telling the publication: "She didn't have a wrinkle on her face, her hair was perfect, and she had the body of a supermodel. "She was absolutely flawless." - Daily Mail
