Katie Holmes Has a New Fashion Guru – Suri!

Forget Armani, Donna Karan and Dolce & Gabbana – the next time a celebrity tells the world who she’s wearing, don’t be surprised if she says “Suri.”

It seems Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise‘s little girl is turning into quite the fashion icon.

“She loves clothes and she picks out her own clothes,” Katie, 30, said at the Elle Women in Hollywood Tribute on Monday. “She loves that, she [loves] running, she loves dancing, she loves singing.”

And the 3 ½-year-old – who seems to have been getting as much media ink as her folks – doesn’t stop at her personal look – she has a hand in mom’s look, too. She regularly helps picks out the actress’ clothes – including her Alaïa outfit that night.

“I got a thumbs up!” Katie said.

She is the epitome of a girly girl🙂

“She loves clothes and she picks out her own clothes,”

Well that might explain why she’s so inappropriately dressed at times. I’ve no qualms with children picking what they wear, I think it’s a great expression of character and helps to enhance individualism. However, it’s got to come with boundaries. It’s got to be weather and event appropriate and it can’t be unhealthy for them. Dresses in winter and heels on a 3 year old are a massive no-no for me but hey, Suri’s not my kid.

Amanda I agree.
I mean, my son picks his own clothes, but I still maker it clear that some parts of his wardrobe are off limits at certain times. And with a 3 year old, we just remove his summer clothes from his closet in winter, he’ll outgrow them anyway by next summer.

My 4 year old niece loves dressing herself and she does pretty well. Her mom started putting matching outfits together in the drawer and told her she could wear whatever she wanted but it had to be an outfit already matched up! Worked out great. She gets to feel independent by selecting her own outfit but also not go out of the house wearing crazy clothing combinations!

I can just see Suri sitting on Katies bed going, “are you sure you want to go out of the house wearing that? Like seriously mom that’s so not cool!”

Hmmmm, explains why Katie’s outfits are usually…not that great. She has a 3 year old picking out her clothes.

She seems very close to her daughter. I am loving the new long haired look that she is rocking.

Cute story.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the way Katie dresses. She looks stylish when she’s at events and relaxed when she’s running errands. There’s no need to look like your on the red carpet all the time.

Cracking up @ Shawna🙂

Katie looks beautiful in that picture. Sometimes she looks older than she is, but in that picture she’s just gorgeous.

No offense, but Katie could use all the help she can get. Her choices are often disastrous. She is naturally very beautiful, but she seriously needs a stylist.
