It's one of the greatest mysteries of our time - why, in plummeting temperatures, and with her mum bundled up in hats, scarves and padded jackets, does little Suri Cruise repeatedly step out in the flimsiest of frocks?
Does she have her very own micro-climate? Does she bask in an aura of sunlight and warmth no matter how heavily the snow falls or the wind blows? Well at last the truth behind No-Coat-Suri has been revealed by her mum, Katie Holmes.
Speaking to InStyle magazine, Katie, 32, admits some of the snaps of scantily-clad Suri leave her red-faced:
'Recently, Suri and I were taking a walk and a fight got started because it was cold outside and she didn't want to wear her coat,' she said. 'My philosophy is, well, fine, because after a block of walking you're going to ask me for your coat.
'So the pictures of her [without a coat in cold weather] are sort of embarrassing, but I said, 'Suri, I'll take the hit. Just put it on when you get cold.'
Hmmm. Ok, so if the coatless pics left Katie blushing, we wonder how the affair of the gummy willy sweets left her feeling, or the high-heels on the beach
No coat, but Suri sure likes her shoes...
- Party girl
Suri’s found a pair of real <a href="http://www.parentdish.co.uk/2011/04/06/suri-cruise-birthday-13-000-circus-party/" target="_blank">party</a> shoes in these fancy gold T-bar sandals, and, never one to not get value from her wardrobe, these made quite a few appearances before, naturally, Suri out grew them.</p>
- Out with the old, and in with the new
Ditching gold for silver, Suri squeezes her feet into another pair of heels for a day out. Looks like mum took the easy option of comfy flats for the pair’s walkabout though.</p>
- Heels on the beach
The little lady recently hit the <a href="http://www.parentdish.co.uk/2011/05/31/suri-cruise-steps-out-in-heels-on-the-beach/" target="_blank">beach </a>for a day with her mum, but forgot her flip flops! Instead she tackled the sand in these, gorgeous, but completely impractical, gold heels, complete with party dress, of course.</p>
- Suri in slippers
Ditching the heels, if only for one night only, Suri looks ready for bed in these fantastic pig slippers. Great to see her wearing something fun rather than so grown up. Didn’t fancy joining her, Katie?</p>
- Flower power
Never one to be a wall erm, flower, Suri turned heads when she stepped out a pair of floral slip-on heels, colour clashing brilliantly with a pink heart print dress and stylish mac.</p>
- Not a good look
Not as bad as socks and sandals, but these thick socks and dainty pumps don’t quite work, especially on such tiny tootsies. Lost your fashionista style already, Suri?</p>
- Comfort at last
Hurrah! Suri’s discovered comfort. Here she is, finally, in flat, comfy boots. Clearly she doesn’t want to get those booties dirty though, opting for a carry instead…</p>
- Ballerina beauty
Off to dance class? Nope, just a fancy tutu and ballet pump combo to battle the New York rain. Hey, at least she’s got a brolly, right?</p>
- Grrrrrrrreat choice!
Loving the leopard print on this pair, and there’s not a heel in sight!</p>
- Dad, I need you!
Looks like the stacked heels got a little too much for sleepy Suri. Luckily Tom’s on hand to scoop her, and her heels up for a carry.</p>
