We've seen her out and about NYC with daughter Suri, but last night Katie Holmes got all dolled up for her first public appearance since divorcing Tom Cruise ... and she looked great!

The ex-Mrs. Cruise was seen attending the 9th Annual Style Awards at Lincoln Center in New York on Wednesday night, where she presented the Designer of the Year Award to Carolina Herrera.

Katie's hair and makeup was on point and she looked lovely in a black button down shirt paired with a gold skirt with black embellishments.

She was also seen sitting at the same table with Katharine McPhee and designer Joe Zee at the event, which will air September 14 on Style Network.

Check out more photos of Katie back on the scene above!
