Katie Holmes Gets (and Takes!) Fashion Advice from Daughter Suri Courtesy Elle

At age 4, Suri Cruise is already a seasoned fashionista. Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s daughter has been spotted in everything from Burberry dresses to silver pumps. And it turns out that she’s not only picking out her own clothes, but she’s not afraid to give her famous parents style pointers. “She’ll really tell me [what she thinks],” Holmes told ELLE.”“Like today I’m wearing brown suede pants, and she said, ‘I don’t like your pants.’ But then she’ll say, ‘You’ve got to wear these shoes.’ Or ‘That’s so pretty, Mom. Wear that.’ She’s got a great eye.” The actress, who co-designs her own clothing line, Holmes & Yang, has obviously passed on her flare for fashion to Suri and the two are often spotted shopping together. “The other day we came out of a store, and she said, ‘I want to go there,’ pointing at another store quite a distance away,” Holmes notes. “In that store was the dress that she wanted. I said, ‘Wow, Suri. You’re something. You picked that out from a football field away.’” To read more from Katie’s cover interview, go to — Alla Byrne

Love that Tom and Katie let Suri have her own sense of style and that she makes suggestions for her family to the style as well.
My daughter has that sense of style also I often ask her thoughts on my outfits and she is 12 and has done since she was little. xx

Magnolia and Laura have it right. Suri’s being raised to cross lines and seemingly not have many boundaries kids her age need. It’s going to be really interesting once she becomes a tween, then a teen. I actually have more respect for Madonna than I ever thought I would because she seems to be raising Lola pretty decently, and at least Lola’s old enough to truly give some fashion input. At 4, Suri should stick to dressing Barbies and not her mommy.

Sorry on

Does Suri ever play, or does she always shop? Is that the paparazzi giving us that impression, or is Mommy really encouraging her to buy? Maybe Katie Holmes should introduce Suri to Suze Orman.

This is what’s wrong with the world today. Everyone is up in arms about a little girl who loves to be a little princess but yet we bow to and praise the parents of the one who wants to be called John, collects dead animal and carries a sword.
What’s wrong here? People check your hate.

…fashion “flare”? Is Suri writing for People now, too? Perhaps it’s some other 4 year old.

Thea on

Fashion “flare”? Did Suri write the article, too?

What century does everyone live in??? There is SO much more to do with/teach a girl than how to shop!
Read to her,throw and catch a ball (yes,moms can do this too),play board games,horse-back riding,skating,swimmming,etc. Some girls are into sports,academics,and that’s all right. Who gives a d*** if some girls and women aren’t into fashion?

Wow, reminds me of some friends who were so proud of their 4 yr old because he could recite the top 20 off of MTV. It’s a strange old world. It seems very true that they treat Suri like she is a grown up. She is not growing up in the real world. I expect she will grow up to be like Paris Hilton.

You can clearly see she takes fashion advice from her daughter…her clothes never match!
Katie holmes never wears an outfit that makes you go wow!
