Why Can’t Suri Cruise Play Dress-Up?
So Tom and Katie’s daughter likes to wear high heels and super-girlie dresses. What’s the big deal?

So, now it appears that little Suri Cruise has a makeup bag. Oh, the horror! Not only do Tom and Katie let her wear high heels and flamenco dresses, but she has her OWN MAKEUP BAG! What’s next — a profile on Match.com? Her very own custom stripper pole?
Seriously, people, everyone needs to calm down about Suri’s propensity to play dress-up. So she has her very own little dance shoes with heels. She just wants to be like her mama. What’s so horrible about that? She obviously loves all things dress-up and girly — she’s just one of those girls. And her parents “indulge her” — but why shouldn’t they?
The Daily Mail proclaims, direly:
Suri Cruise’s love of makeup and high heels shows no sign of abating.
And despite recent criticism that she is allowing her daughter to grow up too quickly, mother Katie Holmes seems quite happy to continue to indulge her.
Katie, 30, and three-year-old Suri — Ms. Holmes’ daughter with husband Tom Cruise, 46 — were snapped yesterday afternoon visiting the actor on the set of his upcoming film Knight and Day in Seville in Spain.
[Suri] clutched a pink makeup bag which appeared to contain an assortment of lip glosses in many different shades, although she didn’t appear to be wearing any.
But in contrast, she also had a soft toy snuggled underneath her arm, which many would consider a much more appropriate accessory for a three-year-old girl.
As little girls go, there’s a spectrum — on one end is your typical tomboy, like my little sister who insisted on cutting her hair short and played with army guys until she hit puberty. On the other hand you have girls like, well, like me when I was little, and my daughter now. My favorite toys were a pair of giant rhinestone earrings and a collection of vintage hats. I lusted after Lee Press-On Nails and couldn’t wait to be old enough to wear lip gloss (Bonnie Bell Lipsmackers being a poor substitute).
