Katie Holmes is showing off her sensual side!

The mother of one is drop-dead gorgeous on the cover of Allure magazine's April issue, where she poses in sexy swimwear with dripping wet hair for an overall smoldering look.

The former TV star also opens up about her whirlwind year—her divorce from Tom Cruise was finalized in August after six years of marriage—and the doting mother of 6-year-old Suri talks about the possibility of expanding her family someday.

"I don't know," she says of giving Suri a sibling. "I'm open to it."

Talk about a mini fashion army!

But first, the former Dawson's Creek star is looking to have a "good year" after a drama-filled 2012, and she even admits she's open to a career change outside the acting world:

"Well, my brother and father are attorneys, and—we'll see. I like the practical thinking of attorneys," she confesses.

Since her much-buzzed-about divorce, Holmes has been living in New York, focusing on her career and her adorable little girl. She also starred in the Broadway play Dead Accounts and shared her feelings about the overall experience, even though the play closed seven weeks early.

"I was open to—well, to whoever wanted me," she explains of taking on the role. "But it was always my goal to make it back to the stage."

But now, she's focused on moving on, both personally and professionally, and she hopes for peace for both herself—and the world—in the coming year.

"I hope this is a peaceful year for a lot of people in the world. When you look back on the last year, there were a lot of tragedies—Hurricane Sandy, the Connecticut shooting. I…I just hope it's a good year for everyone."

We hope so too, Katie!
