We've heard that Suri Cruise is really into fashion before, but in the February issue of Elle, Katie Holmes reiterates how dedicated her daughter is to clothes.

Katie also talks about playing Jackie in the upcoming TV show The Kennedys, saying, "I worked as hard as I could, because I loved her." And: "I didn't realize that [Jackie] had lost a child in August and then [Jack] was assassinated in November. I couldn't believe it. She had so much strength….I loved her love of family, how important it was for her to be a good mother."


But back to Suri! The kid knows exactly what she wants:

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. 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.'

Plus, Suri is full of advice:
She'll really tell me [what she thinks]. 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.

And the paparazzi's interest in Suri gets doesn't worry Katie: "I don't worry so much. It is what it is, and it's fine."

Oh, Tom and Katie! I assure you, no matter how flawless her taste, sharp her eyesight, or commanding in her opinions, Suri is exactly like most other children her age. I know it's a hard truth, but your kid is just like everyone else. Tom, you should already know this.

In regards to the comments downthread about Suri growing up to be insufferable (which may well happen, or not, who knows), has anyone ever heard a peep about Connor and Bella acting up, acting out, being assholes, etc? I know that in their spare time they're kept in a hermetically sealed vault at Scientology HQ, but they do seem to be pretty well-behaved when they do venture out.

Random story: One year, at Book Expo America (BEA), the Scientologists were giving out galley copies of a new children's picture book about how to behave. Now, you and I know it's a recruiting tool, but I swear, there was nothing in the book that I or any colleagues could argue was objectionable. And believe me, we looked. It was all, 'Be nice to your teachers, don't do drugs, be good to your parents, keep your room clean, share your stuff, work hard in school". It also included "only drink in moderation" and "be monogomous", which was weird for a kid's picture book, but also hinted at how early they talk about, or rather don't hide, things like drinking and sex. Too bad it's a cult, though.
