In the last year, Suri Cruise suddenly went from teeny toddler, to a genuine style icon. She was just so damn cute. And her mini-me ensembles that she wore out and about with Mom were, frankly heart-melting.
But in the last couple of months, her style went in a new direction, most specifically: up. Suri started wearing insanely high heels (which okay, for a toddler, means heels that are about an inch high…). And with every outfit, regardless of how inappropriate for the occasion (think: Victoria Beckham at school sports day).
We must admit we found this a little puzzling, as high heels on a little girl kind of smacks of Miley Cyrus’ racier ensembles, to say nothing of being bad for teeny feet (Victoria Beckham’s fugly bunions have received a lot of press in recent weeks, and presumably she only started wearing heels in her teens).
Katie and Tom aren’t exactly Dina and Michael Lohan, so what’s with the crazy liberal attitude to high heels for Suri?
Well, Katie has finally revealed all. "They are actually ballroom dancing shoes for kids," Holmes told Access Hollywood, who explained that Suri had become fascinated with the shoes after seeing Mommy’s dance routine on her guest appearance on US reality show "So You Think You Can Dance" earlier this year.
Presumably, dance shoes have to give a certain level of support to the foot, and a certain comfort factor. Hmm, we’re still not convinced about the Miley Cirus angle though. Far be it from us to question the stylings of such a dedicated fashionista, but maybe stick to mini Burberry trenches instead, poppet?
