20 Times Suri Was More Fashionable Than Katie Holmes

Suri Cruise was born in April 2006, and ever since then, she has been impressing us with her incredibly fashionable looks. Even when she was a toddler, she would have an impeccable hairstyle and an interesting outfit on. Now that she's 13, we're definitely eager to see what style she embraces during her teenage years.

Of course, Suri's parents are none other than famous actors Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise. We've loved Katie since her turn as Joey Potter on Dawson's Creek, and it has been really cool to follow her as a mom.

While Katie has a low-key way of dressing, favoring preppy looks (and a lot of jeans), Suri's style story is much different. Here are 20 times Suri was more fashionable than Katie Holmes.

20 WHILE KATIE'S GOT A FAIRLY CONSERVATIVE DRESS ON, HER MINI-ME IS ROCKING A BEAUTIFUL, INTERESTING FLORAL DRES

via E Online

Katie's look isn't bad, of course: she looks gorgeous and her dress is dreamy and pretty. But Suri is definitely the winner here. She stands out in her floral print dress and it's something that we would expect someone who is much older to wear. We're impressed (and we're going to be saying that a lot because Suri really knows what she's doing).

A pink coat is always going to be a lot more interesting than a plain beige or brown one. Although Katie and her daughter both stepped out in similar outerwear, we would have to say that Suri definitely wins this round. There's really no comparing these two coats, and Suri is also wearing a cute dress and shoes, whereas Katie is wearing a plain pair of jeans.

Suri is also more fashionable than her mom in this photo. She's wearing a beautiful floral dress and a cute pink bow in her hair. (Maybe we should start wearing bows in our hair?!) Katie looks good, but her plain white t-shirt and blue jeans are no match for Suri's cool dress.

It's amazing to see how grown-up Suri looks here. When Suri was 11, Us Weekly quoted her famous mom as saying, "She is 11 and a half and she’s a great girl and she’s doing so well and I’m enjoying this time. I’m not so worried yet about the teenage years.”

It's tough to handle how fashionable Suri is in this photo. From the tall black boots to the red plaid dress to the coat... There is so much style in this one outfit.

It's hard to picture Katie in an outfit like this one. She dresses a lot more casual than her daughter does, and Suri is often in head-stopping, trendy outfits.

Once again, Suri is wearing a much cooler and more stylish outfit than her mom: while Katie's got a dull shirt on, Suri is sparkling in a starry dress.

According to The Washington Post, Suri actually picks out her mom's clothing: she told Life & Style Weekly, "Suri's had the final say on Katie's red carpet choices since she was two. She's the one who gets to mix and match and choose the final combo her mother will wear." We're not surprised. Suri has amazing taste.

We might not think that a pink coat, pink pants, and pink shoes would go together. Thankfully, we have Suri Cruise to teach us that wearing three shades of the same color can look absolutely amazing. She looks great in her matching pink outfit.

Maybe Suri even chose this combo herself? As Katie Holmes told Life & Style Weekly, "She picks out all of her own clothes and has since she was one-and-a-half."

14 MATCHING MOM AND DAUGHTER: EVEN HERE, SURI SHINES IN HER SWEET LITTLE OUTFIT

Here's another example of Suri being more fashionable than her famous mother. Even though they are wearing basically the same thing (a white skirt and a black and white striped top), Suri still has something special.

This is such a great pic since we can tell that Katie is such a good mom. As she told Today.com, she wants Suri to be proud of herself: "Be true to your sense of opinions. I listen to her. It’s a daily thing."

13 HERE SURI IS LOOKING STYLISH AND CUTE EVEN WHILE TRAVELING AT THE AIRPORT

via Hollywood Life

Okay, we have to step up our airport look because after seeing this fashionable picture of Suri Cruise, we know that we don't look like these when we travel. Her patterned pants, oversized sweater, and big scarf are so cool.

We can definitely see that Suri looks like she's growing up in this photo. When Suri was ten, Katie Holmes told Refinery 29, "Every day, kids get a little further away from you. That's a positive thing. They should be becoming more independent, but it's heartbreaking."

12 HERE SURI IS MUCH YOUNGER, ROCKING HER BLUE DRESS AND LIME GREEN RAINBOOTS, PROVING SHE'S A TINY FASHION PLATE

Suri has always been a fashion plate, and we love this photo of her when she was much younger. Her lime green rainboots are so cute and her navy blue dress is beautiful.

We can guess that her mom wouldn't be too keen on wearing this color combination because we never see the actress in neon green. Suri's so fashionable here, and her long hair is also nicely styled.

11 KATIE'S SUPER CASUAL LOOK, ONCE AGAIN, PALES IN COMPARISON TO SURI'S AMAZING SKIRT — AND SPARKLING HEELS

Katie Holmes seems to love dressing in comfortable clothes, but we can tell that Suri has had a very strong, sharp fashion sense since she was really little. This photo is a perfect example of how Katie and her daughter's style differs.

While Katie is in plain beige pants, Suri has a fabulous skirt on... and we can't forget the sparkling heels. She looks adorable and much more fashionable than her mom.

10 SURI'S GOT A SWEET, CLASSIC SCHOOL GIRL STYLE NO MATTER WHAT

via Marie Claire and Pinterest

Based on these two fashionable pictures, we would say that when Suri was a bit younger, she had a sweet, classic school girl style. She wore a cute jean jacket, grey skirt, and tights like a pro (with a striking pink backpack, of course -- the girl seems to love pink). She also looks great in the photo on the right in a pink dress and ballet flats.

In both pictures, Suri wins the style game over her mom, who looks much more casual than she does.

9 AND HERE SURI IS, TOTALLY UPSTAGING HER MOM ONCE AGAIN, THIS TIME IN A COOL COAT AND PRETTY PINK TIGHTS

via Hollywood Life

Suri seems to adore the color pink, ballet flats, and cool coats. She's wearing all three of these things in this photo, standing next to her famous parents.

Suri is definitely upstaging her mom in this outfit. While she's all decked out and looks like she's heading to a party, her mom's wearing a regular outfit of jeans and a coat.

8 SURI'S POLISHED AND PRETTY WHITE DRESS STANDS OUT, WHILE KATIE'S PLAIN JANE OUTFIT IS SIMPLY OKAY

Suri is also more fashionable than her mom in this photo of the two them walking around. They both look so happy to be hanging out together, and there's truly nothing cuter than that.

While Suri's hair is pulled back into a neat ponytail with a pink headband and she's wearing a pretty frilly white dress, Katie's wearing a Plain Jane outfit of jeans and a blouse.

7 WE CAN'T GET OVER SURI'S BEAUTIFUL COAT IN THIS MOTHER/DAUGHTER SNAPSHOT

via Us Weekly

In this photo, Katie's wearing an outfit that is a bit fancier than we usually see her wear. Her dress, tights, and tall red boots are beautiful.

But her outfit is still no match for Suri's. From her amazing coat to her brown and pink two-toned boots, she's really displaying that she has such a sophisticated style.

6 LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD: WE LOVE SURI'S RED SWEATER, STRIPED HEADBAND, AND PATTERNED DRESS

via Zimbio

We've seen a lot of photos of Suri in ballet flats, dresses, and headbands. This particular outfit might be one of her greatest looks because we love her red, white, and navy blue color combination. While we don't often see Katie in a dress and flats since she tends to pick jeans and tops, Suri is always dressed to (seriously) impress.

5 WITH A PINK BOW AND PATTERNED DRESS, SURI'S LOOK GETS AN A+ FROM US

via Pinterest

As Suri has gotten closer to her teenage years, she has still chosen to wear amazing dresses. In this photo, she's got a leopard print dress on, socks, ballet flats, and a pink bow in her hair. She's also holding a pink purse.

Not many people can pull off the whole socks-and-shoes look but, of course, if anyone was going to, it would be Suri Cruise.

4 A YOUNG SURI CRUISE ALWAYS LOOKED STYLISH BEYOND HER YEARS (AND WE LOVE HER BOB WITH BANGS)

Can we even with the photo of a little Suri on the left, with her skirt and cardigan and bob with bangs?! She was so fashionable even as a toddler. She is #hairgoals and #stylegoals and basically #goals, period. While Katie is wearing a nice and sophisticated outfit in the photo on the left, Suri is still absolutely winning.

3 WHILE HER FAMOUS MOM GOES FOR A CLASSIC STYLE, SURI'S PAIRED A SKIRT AND TOP WITH TWO DIFFERENT PATTERNS

via HawtCelebs

It's clear that Suri is going to go into fashion and be the best designer ever (or excel in whatever style-related job she decides to have) because even just walking around, she's wearing two different patterns... and she has managed to make it work.

We love her pink and gray striped top and her blue patterned skirt. Even her shoes are fashionable. Katie's classic yet plain outfit of a blue t-shirt and jeans are no match for her daughter's outfit.

2 SURI'S DRESS GAME IS SUPER STRONG, TOO, AND WE LOVE THESE DAYTIME LOOKS

both images are via Elle

The future editor of Vogue? A super successful fashion designer? All of the above?

These are all the goals that we can totally see Suri Cruise achieving, at least after seeing these two photos of her. On the left, we see her in a blue dress, pink hat, and ballet flats, and in the photo on the right, she's looking fashionable in an orange dress and red shoes. We really appreciate how she's so bold with her color choices and will wear different ones at the same time.

1 FROM STRUCTURED BOOTS TO SOPHISTICATED COATS, SURI KNOWS HOW TO DRESS (AND COULD DEFINITELY GIVE US ADVICE)

via Pinterest and Cosmopolitan

It's official. We'd love to take fashion advice from Suri Cruise. Whether she's wearing structured boots and a dress and coat like the photo on the left, or she's wearing a proper coat and a schoolgirl look like the photo on the right, she looks so fashionable.

Whether she's wearing a structured coat, pretty dress, or tights and boots, Suri Cruise is definitely more fashionable than her famous mom... and we love every outfit.
