Suri Designs Her Own Clothes!

Katie Holmes, former resident of a certain creek, now member of the A-list, Broadway star and mother of Hollywood’s most photographed child, has spoken out about her and Suri's fashion chops; “I started making clothes for Suri when she was born, designing dresses, and then having seamstresses sew them.” We've all boggled at the pictures of tiny Suri, not only for her colour-co-ordinated little ensembles but also the freakish levels of grooming - never a hair out of place, never so much as a smudge on her pinafore - does she remind anyone else of a character from a children's story set in Victorian times, all tea in the nursery with the Governess and starched frills for Sunday best?

Katie goes on to say that her love of fashion might well be in her blood; 'I always loved clothes growing up. My mother had a drapery business. And now, part of being in this business is that you’re around really nice clothes. You do these photo shoots, you get exposed to Hermès and Chloé and Armani, and you start to feel the difference.'

Even the colour of Suri's snacks must match her outfits

BUT, most wonderful (slash insane) of all – she reveals that Suri is so particular about what she wears that she customises her own things. 'She says, “I want this sleeve cut,” and it’s like, “Okay, we’ll cut it.” She picks out all of her own clothes and has since she was 1½'. Yikes! She’s now reached the grand old age of FOUR, let's not forget! Tavi and Lourdes may well start to feel past it when they hear this news, poor things.

Mrs Cruise also admitted that not even the grown-ups in the house can escape from Suri’s beady eye for all things sartorial; '[when] Tom and I went to the Met ball a couple of years ago, I had this beautiful red gown and these royal-blue shoes that I wasn’t planning on wearing, but Suri made me put them on and so I was like, “Okay, I trust you.'

So now we know!
