With the parade of celebrity break-ups and make-ups which seemingly occur on each tick of the clock, one can easily forget yesterday's eternally devoted it-couple. None was more befuddling, affectionate, or sartorially on-the-nose than Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise. For the better part of a decade, the world watched, slack-jawed, as the couple jumped on sofas, trotted around in matching designer wares, and fawned over their daughter. Though their union ended in 2012, one remnant of the marriage remains — aside from the adorable Suri. Cruise and Holmes' marriage brought the world the short-lived era of Couture-Chic Katie, when she befriended Victoria Beckham and the well-dressed pair became temporarily inseparable. In honor of Throwback Thursday, here are 13 times Katie Holmes looked like Victoria Beckham on the red carpet.

In A Beaded Strapless Gown

From the signature Beckham smirk to the glossy slick-back hair and subdued, navy gown, Holmes channeled posh like a pro.

In A Strapless Black Gown And The Ubiquitous Black Sunglasses, 2006

The sartorial twins stepped out in coordinated black sunnies, black strapless couture, and a dose of that signature je ne sais quoi.

In A Fierce Black Ensemble And Sunnies, 2006

Holmes looked lackluster without Bex at her side, but still channeled her style icon with wrap-around, tinted shades, a black turtleneck, and black skirt.

In A Gold And Navy Gown, 2007

Holmes’ bob was the perfect amalgamation of Anna Wintour and Victoria Beckham, paired with a navy sweetheart neckline gown and a heavily sequined, gilded bolero.

In A Drop-Waist, Silver Dress, 2007

A saucy cropped ‘do and simple silver drop-waist dress were sheer Beckham in 2007. 

In A Single-Shoulder Satin Gown, 2007

The Dawson’s Creek alum left character Joey in the dust with this draped, single-shoulder black satin gown in 2007.

In An LBD, 2007

Holmes yet again poached her BFF’s style with this Beckham-favored LBD.

In A Navy Sheath, 2007

A navy sheath, minimalist jewelry, and glossy bob were sheer Beckham in 2007.

In A Red Trench Coat, 2008

A pouty Holmes suited up in a double-breasted crimson trench and white blouse in 2008.

In A Tailored Red Dress, 2008

Holmes gave the paparazzi a chilly stare on the red carpet at a 2008 Gucci event, clad in a tailored rouge dress that could easily have been snatched from pal Victoria’s signature line.

In A Printed Sheath Dress, 2008

On a nondescript night in 2008, Bex opened the door of her walk-in closet to find that one of her sea of printed, grey sheath dresses had been taken, to later show up on the red carpet by one Katie Holmes. Or so I imagine the story goes.

In A Silver Cut-Out Mini, 2008

A pearly grey, metallic mini featured an exposed back and a hefty dose of Beckham chic in 2008.

In A Bow-Embellished LBD, 2009

With her polished bob slightly obscuring her face and her fitted black bow-embellished gown perfectly styled, it could almost be Victoria Beckham in Tom Cruise’s arms.
