First It Was the Heels, Now It’s Lipstick–Where Will Katie Holmes Draw the Line?

Who could forget all the slack Katie Holmes caught back in 2009 when her then 4-year-old daughter was snapped wearing a pair of kitten heels. Even though I tend to be old-fashioned about these types of things, seeing Suri in the shoes didn’t really bother me.

But when I came across this recent picture of Suri sporting deep red lipstick, I did stop and wonder if it’s about time for Katie Holmes to draw the line. I’m all for encouraging parents to trust their instincts, but a 5-year-old wearing lipstick? What’s next? A tattoo when she’s 10?

I get that Suri wearing makeup isn’t really hurting anyone, but it does make me wonder if there will be adverse consequences in the long run. If mom obliges her request to wear heels at age 3 and lipstick at age 5, isn’t Katie Holmes sort of setting a precedent that Suri can get whatever she asks for down the road? Seems like a bad trend to be establishing so young if you ask me.

  • I don’t really like it but to each their own. Also, Suri has another parent too( and one who happens to be very famous) I’m just curious about why no one ever really talks about him when it comes to articles about Suri. Why is everything blamed on Katie?

  • Who are we to judge? Who cares what she does with her child. Katie is the mom, she can do what she wants, as long as it doesn’t cause her kid any harm. She will also have to deal with the consequences of her actions. So if she creates a spoiled little monster in the process, that also will be her problem, and not mine. Let’s live and let live.

  • you know, i wonder if they were doing like a b&w photo shoot that day and the red lips were a little color thing. That could be cute and acceptable but I agree that lipstick (even pink) is silly at that age. My kids all had chapstick but no colors…perhaps a flavor or 2 but no color. My daughter is now 11 and I allow her to wear lipgloss…no color though, shiney is enough.
