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

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

Katie has done a marvelous job of changing from an up and coming, brilliant actress to an obedient stepford wife and stepford mother.

Doesn’t the kid have any little friends her own age?? Like the Brangelina crowd…only seem to have each other to play with. This one only seems to have her mother as her playdate…

I think Katy is really pretty, however I have always felt she dresses to OLD for her age. Her outfits would look better on say, her mother. Secondly, she can raise her daughter how she sees fit. If they get their mother/daughter time shopping then, good for them.

This is so pathetic. Suri looks like a ragamuffin 99%of the time and Katie takes fashion tips from her? LMAO Katie, your kid is a cute, normal 4 year old–no need to keep selling her to the crowd for her “amazing” abilities. I remember one time she described Suri as “A beautiful woman” when she was like 2.


Again with the horrible comments. This is just a small blurb of something their daughter does, I didn’t read that they let her run their life or that she hasn’t learn to give. GEEZ…..get over yourselves already!

When i was 3 i was passed round adult circles as the entertainment, as noone could believe that a 3 year old could not only hold a conversation with adults but have opinions too. Ive also dreamed of being a fashion designer since the age of 6 when i was given my first fashion wheel. 23 years old now, I have worked and paid for my own education trying to realise my dreams. I don’t see anything wrong with encouraging your childs passions or talking to them like an adult. If anything it made me more independent and work harder.
