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 elle.com. — Alla Byrne

What’s the difference between “getting advice” and “taking advice?”…just curious

When you get advice, you process it but don’t use it. When you take advice, you process it and use it to make a decision.

@Kim, you’ve GOT to be kidding me. I have been watching this whole mess from near the beginning and since she married Tom, Katie’s fashion went DOWNHILL. Rarely does she look elegant or put together these days. This pic is probably the best pic I’ve seen of her since I don’t know when. Otherwise you see her looking tired but with a very forced smile on her face and ill-fitting clothes.

Don’t believe me? Google every picture in the last several years and compare to before and after her marriage to Tom Cruise.

Oh brother, ya’ll can take a thing and run with it. When my daughter was four she loved playing dress up and thought she was a fashion queen. She is 13 and still tries to accessorize me. She is a girly girl. Nothing wrong with that.

I wish we would stop putting Katie Holmes and Suri up on this pedestal. Just because Katie Holmes married Tom Cruise does not make her an A list actress, and just because they have money to buy designer clothes does not make Katie or Suri fashionistas. I wish Elle or any other magazine would put someone else on the cover who truly represents what a fashionista is. Those of us who can pull together looks without the money or the stylists. I really wish we would all quit glorifying Katie and her child.

Nothing is wrong with Tom and Kate’s parenting. My 4 year old girl is the same, knows what she wants to wear and how to put things together and always she gets “I love your outfit” compliment, everywhere we go. There is nothing wrong there, I am very proud that my kid has a sense of style that so many people lack. Suri is the same way, just a little girl who knows how to dress. i wish many adults would dress better, i cannot stand seeing people in streets wearing uncoordinated, untastfuly put together clothes, honestly

Kim relax on all the comments. People are allowed to have opinions. Get a life. This whole situation isn’t healthy and I agree w/ Alyssa- they aren’t fashionistas. at all. NEXT.

Boy is that sick.. That poor little girl will grow up and have to have the big cruel world out there and have no idea how to act. What a shame. Also sick to death of watching them carrying that 4 year old, for heaven sakes she has legs and feet let her use them

i think it’s adorable. what mother does not dream of taking their daughter shopping!! it’s one excerpt of their life. i mean, i’m sure she could go on and on about her development and brag about how smart she is and that she knows her ABCs, blah, blah, brag much, but she gave you a cute mom/daugther story and it is a fashion magazine. i believe i read a story a while back that they served food at a food bank. geez people. if i have a daughter which i hope to have i will sure enough be telling my friends about our shopping adventures.
