Suri Cruise Takes Wearing Heels to the Next Level

It’s been well documented that Suri Cruise likes her high heels. She’s been wearing them since she was 3. And now at the ripe old age of 5, she’s still rocking her heels.

But, on December 16th, she ventured from her New York hotel with her Dad, Tom Cruise, wearing not only strappy gold heels but also a summery pink dress with bare legs and feet. Being the concerned citizens we are, we checked the weather. It wasn’t quite 8°C on December 16th in New York. And it was windy. And yes, we’re sure she was just being ushered from a hotel to a warm car, and yes, Daddy has a coat in his hand. But unless he also has socks in his hand, we’d like to know how her little legs and toes aren’t freezing to bits! We’re cold just looking at her.

Remember those days when you used to go to clubs, and you would forgo your coat and your warm boots because you wanted to wear sexy shoes and you knew there wassn’t a coat check at the club, and you didn’t want to lose your winter gear, and you didn’t want to hold on to it all night as you were dancing? It’s like that. But when you’re FIVE YEARS OLD.

We don’t want to judge—because we don’t know what kind of fit she pitched, or the Cruise family’s approach to clothing selection or any of those things. But we admit, in this case, we’re judging Tom Cruise. We are. Sorry, Tom, but put the girl in some tights.

There’s one plus side to all of this: at least she’s not wearing hose with those open-toed strappy gold shoes. Because that, friends, is a fashion faux pas no one should make.

What do you think? No big whoop?

  1. Since they’re leaving a hotel, one would wonder why they packed a summer dress and strappy heels in December in the first place.

    Making too much of a picture. I raised my kids in the far north and they didnt dress accordingly. Kids don’t feel the cold.

    Unless you have ever been around a 5 year old that likes dress up you can not comment on this. My daughter wears the most rediculous things sometimes. My guess is it went something like this “Daddy I neeeeeed to wear this….but it’s my favourite dress….but….but…but” and to avoid a tantrum he said fine. They weren’t going for a walk in the park so no big whoop in my books!

    When I read the headline, I was expecting to see a picture of Suri wearing high heels similar to what I wear on date night with my husband (at least inches wise). The shoes that she is wearing look very similar to play dress up shoes you can buy. The shoes, themselves, are no big deal in my opinion. As for how she is dressed otherwise. Perhaps, she threw a hissy fit about not wanting to wear her coat (or whatever else 5 year olds throw hissy fits about) and it was just easier to get her into the car and deal with it after. If they were outside for a longer period of time, then yes there would be an issue.

    When it’s cold the children get the choice of what to wear – if they want a dress but it’s cold out they can choose tights or pants underneath or snowpants on top. My 11 and 4 year olds are good with this. As the mother of 2 girls I decide if it is not safe-it doesn’t happen. Parents should have backbones and stand up for what is right. If my daughter was to have a temper tantrums I would deal with it appropriately. (i.e. take away the option to wear a dress for a few days)

    My 3 year old is sitting in my lap right now and exclaimed upon seeing this photo: “Where are the little girl’s tights and why is she wearing THOSE shoes?” Enough said.

    As a mom, I’ve learned (the hard way) to keep my judgements to myself – it comes back to haunt you in the end. Perhaps they are on their way to the airport where they’ll jet off to some tropical destination. Then Tom is overdressed.

    I am a mom of a strong willed 5 year old. There have been many days she has worn a summer dress when it wasn’t summer. She will also wear her favorite purple shirt, pink leggings and orange, brown and beige striped leggings together. Most parents who see this know she has dressed herself. I am thankful for her indedendant “style” and enforce the rules on more important things. Like brushing teeth and looking both ways before crossing the street.
