Katie Holmes: Suri Wears the Pants in the Family

Katie Holmes is this month’s Elle covergirl, and it makes me long for the old sweet innocent Joey Potter.

Katie looks so wholesome and naturally pretty in the photos, it’s hard not to think who she could have been had she not signed up to be Tom Cruise’s beard for life.

On the bright side, she does have an adorable daughter Suri, who apparently runs the show in that household. She even bullies her poor ma into wearing…gasp…suede pants! I don’t care how old you are—that’s just asking for camel toe.

Katie tells the mag, “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.”

She also talks about her shopping excursions with her daughter. “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,” Katie tells the mag. “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.’”

Um, yeah. It’s called—your four-year-old knows you have a black card and can trick you into anything—including toddler kitten heels!

Check out Katie in the pics below…if Suri picked these out, we may just have a budding fashion director on our hands…
