The show must go on! Katie Holmes attends Suri's dance recital as brushfires rage within miles of their Calabasas home

As a Broadway star herself, she knows the show must go on.

True to form, Katie Holmes ensured daughter Suri didn't miss her dance recital on Saturday night - despite the raging brushfires within a few miles of their home.

The pre-planned performance came as fires swept across 500-acres near Calabasas, where the actress lives with her daughter.

Luckily their luxury home was not amongst the 3,000 thought to be at risk from the flames.

The 37-year-old star attended the Los Angeles performance alongside her parents.

The former Mrs Tom Cruise looked stylish in an asymmetrical ruffled black cherry-print dress which revealed a bit of leg.

She paired the festive frock with a black cardigan, matching flats and she kept her accessories simple with a gold pendant necklace.

Mother and daughter coordinated hairstyles with chic high buns and 10-year-old Suri donned a white sparkling gown.

Get cherry picking chic like Katie in a Saint Laurent dress

Katie Holmes rarely sticks to one label, and recently has worn designer looks by the likes of Michael Kors, Isabel Marant and now Saint Laurent. Phew! And it's a tough job hunting each and every dress down, but we're not called Fashion Finder for nothing!

The -list actress/mom looked chic but casual in this one-shouldered little number. It's by Saint Laurent and we love the romantic ruffle layers and fun cherry print. While you could turn it up into a more evening look with some platform heels and a choker, Katie went for a more suburban mom, off duty look by adding a cardigan to it.

It goes to show you how versitile this piece is so head over to SSENSE now to pick up this exact one. The only thing is that there's only one left and it's a size French 38 (US 6). However with our help, recreating the look is simple! We cherry picked several similarly printed numbers below and added a floral ruffled piece for fun.

Katie's mini-me wore a girly ribbon in her hair and slipped into a pair of comfy Nike sneakers after the production.

Holmes' mother Kathleen wore a black and white polka-dot dress with tan sandals, while her father, Martin opted for a bright orange polo shirt and white trousers.

Katie and her family appeared to have had to leave their home shortly before the photos were taken.

It is believed a handful of celebrities may have been made to evacuate their homes over the weekend, after a third-alarm brush fire sparked up on Saturday in Calabasas causing a mandatory evacuation of 5,000 people.

'Three thousand homes are evacuated, which is about 5,000 people,' Tony Coroalles, city manager of Calabasas, told CNN.

The fire is close to the homes of Kim's sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, as well as Scott Disick, Lamar Odom, Jessica Simpson, the Jackson family and Mariah Care. 

Katie has full custody of her daughter following her 2012 split from Tom Cruise after being married for five years.
