Katie Holmes shares adorable photos of Suri from her mom’s party


Much like Tom Cruise, we haven’t seen much of Katie’s Holmes’ daughter Suri lately. Fortunately, Katie shared some photos of her mother Kathleen’s surprise birthday party over the weekend that feature the now ten-year-old Suri:

Gah, those photos are gorgeous, aren’t they? Did anyone else audibly “aaaaw” upon seeing them? That last one warms even my cold, cynical heart. Kudos to the photographer for capturing so much feeling. Katie also shared Suri in full celebration mode:

Even without their outfits on display, you can tell that both ladies were likely beyond fashionable. So is Suri taking sartorial advice from her mother? Nope. Katie told US Weekly that Suri’s style is all her own.

Holmes recently opened up to Us Weekly about Suri’s style insisting she doesn’t take any cues from her fashionable mama.

“No, absolutely not,” she said at the Cartier Fifth Avenue Mansion’s New York Fashion Week reopening on Wednesday, September 7. “She has her own [sense of style].”

However Holmes said she has picked up a valuable fashion and beauty tip from her own mom, Kathleen.

“[She taught me that] being true to yourself is beautiful,” the Dawson’s Creek alum told Us.

[From US Weekly]

My daughter has very definite opinions on her look and does not care for my fashion input either. We had a disagreement over a shirt the other day that I said didn’t match what she was wearing. She argued that even though the patterns were competing, the main color in the shirt was picked up in one of the stripes on the skirt and therefore, went perfectly. She’s nine.

In other Katie news, RadarOnline claims that Katie only has one year left on the “silence” clause of her divorce settlement to Tom. Supposedly, a stipulation was built into the settlement that said Katie couldn’t talk about Tom, Scientology or do anything to embarrass him – like date publicly. If this is true, does that mean that 2017 will finally be the year Katie and Jamie Foxx step out together? Get married? I hope so. I doubt Katie will ever overtly say anything about Scientology but maybe Jamie could work in a few not-so-veiled references in his wedding toast?

    I can see a silence clause in that she couldn’t talk about him publicly, but one that says she can’t date and or remarry? What’s in it for her, other than escaping that lunatic and his cult?

    Also, why would the silence clause ever run out? surely it would be in perpetuity? What good is a few years of silence if after that she can go tell all?

    • Alyse says:

      It does seem strange that Tom would agree to a time limit on her silence.

    • Nicole says:

      I’m going to guess that it was a sticking point. Ie she agreed to only five years which is just long enough for the people to forget (maybe). Reality is she didn’t need to sign an NDA Katie could’ve dragged the divorce out for years and I’m guessing his people did not want that. Lesser of two evils.
      I seriously doubt the clause about dating though. But stranger things have been signed into contracts

      • Naya says:

        This. Much of that contract would be unenforceable but we are talking about a man who is second in command of an organisation that makes members sign a billion year contract. He probably had those terms thrown in for psychological effect. The clauses draw a line in the sand and both parties know that if she crosses it, he will unleash his creepy cult and probably fight for more influence over Suri. I think Kate signed it to avoid a drag out very public fight, to protect her baby and anyway after that media circus she wasnt interested in having another PR relationship. And when the Jamie thing happened (and it is happening, doubters) Jamie wasnt one to pimp out his relationships for press either, so the clauses havent mattered to either one of them.

      • ygsf says:

        The billion year contract thing cracks me up…I know it’s for real in Scientology, but all I can think of is in Austin Powers when Dr. Evil is negotiating taking over the world.

  2. Escondista says:

    They’re both doing so well. You go, Joey Potter!

  3. Alyse says:

    She’s ten?! That flew by! Lovely photos.

    • Pix says:

      Seriously. I remember when they were carrying that little girl everywhere in her tiny, sparkled heels. The best thing Katie ever did was save her daughter from that cult. I will always respect her for that. Now, if in five years Suri starts modeling for Marc Jacobs, I will be appalled. Ha!

      • crtb says:

        Suri now seems to be so much happier and well adjusted. When Tom had her under her influence, she did as she pleased, was spoiled and out of control with no limits or boundaries. They were eating dinner at 10:00pm. She wore clothes that were inappropriate for the weather and place. They attending the theater not entended for children late at night. She has no bed time. She didn’t play with other children. They were treating a very young child as if she were a young adult. With her mom, she seems to be dressed like a child and she isn’t seen having meltdowns. She has friends and goes to a normal school.

    • NYer says:

      This gives me hope…that my baby will still climb in my lap when he’s ten.

      That, and I want those white trousers. I’d wear the hell out of them.

      • Kitten says:

        Oddly enough, I like that whole outfit. The contrasting textures with the soft, loose hairstyle is somehow very flattering on her.

      • supposedtobeworking says:

        my 10 and 12 year old daughters still climb in for snuggles from time to time : ) Sometimes I have to lock the 12 year old down for one, but she giggles, so I’m happy.

      • Konspiracytheory says:

        My 13 year old son still does – love it, but I’m left feeling like my legs are being crushed, lol.

    • Kitten says:

      I know! She’s my age…I suddenly feel so immature…

  4. Loopy says:

    Cannot believe that Tom Cruise refuses to see this child because of some kooky religion.

    • Dani says:

      That kid is waaaaay better off. He hasn’t had the most stunning affect on his other kids.

    • Gardenia says:

      It’s so sad. I hope he wakes up and snaps out of it, but I fear he’s in too deep to turn back now. It would be epic if he did though.

  5. Jayna says:

    The clause story is silly about not dating publicly for all these years. I don’t believe there is any such clause. It’s just a rag mag story to fit with the fact that she hasn’t publicly dated anyone. People still believe she’s with Jamie Fox? I don’t believe that either. He was seen in Miami with a blonde.

    She’s never going to bad-mouth the father of her child. That hurts Suri, even if he is an absentee father. Putting their private story out there for strangers doesn’t benefit Suri. I would believe there was a clause for her not to bad-mouth his so-called religion and she agreed because she got what she wanted, Suri protected and out of it.

    • Little Darling says:

      I believe it 100%, because this is the ego stroking that Tom Cruise seems to need. He knew damn well that Katie could go on a massive public dating spree once she was released from under the toe of his lifted boots. By putting that clause in, he couldn’t be “ridiculed” (by the voices in his head) at how fast she moved on, or with who etc. I definitely think his ego is that large.

      I also think she’s been seeing Jamie Foxx for a few years. Not a lot to go on with that, but little stories and photos seem to support this, so I will believe it.

    • Goldie says:

      As someone who follows Katie pretty closely, I believe that she is dating Jamie. Or if they broke up, it happened fairly recently.

      I don’t believe that she signed a contract forbidding her from publicly dating though. I just think that Jamie has always kept his relationships super private. Like I can’t recall him ever publicly dating anyone. And after all the hoopla surrounding her marriage, Katie probably wants to keep her relationship private. That said, I do wish they would just come out of hiding already. After 3 years, I find it kind of sad that they can’t just go out and do normal things together. They’re missing out on so many potential bonding experiences.
      Jamie once said, that if he’s dating someone, you’ll never know about it. I seriously think he would happily keep the relationship under wraps for years and years, if he has his way. It’s crazy to me and I think Katie deserves better, but maybe it works for them.

  6. LondonGal says:

    Huge respect for this woman. She got out for the health and future of her daughter who she is clearly devoted to. You go Katie Holmes.x

    • JenniferJustice says:

      I second that! If there was/is/ such a “dating” clause in the judgement, it was strictly so Tom could maintain some control over her which only affirms his “problems” and it didn’t do any good other than helped her find someone selfless enough to work through it and be there for her anyway – #FoxRocks!#

      I hope Cruise NEVER sees the light and tries to get back in Suri’s life. It would do her more harm than good. She is by far, better off without him. It may not be ideal to grow up without your birth father, but it’s still the lesser of the two evils.

  7. Trishizle says:

    She looks so much like her dad in the last pic

  8. KikiGee says:

    Wow. Katie looks stunning in that top photo. The hair,make-up, outfit – love it. Her beauty seems to have matured (naturally) and I think she looks amazing.

    • Neelyo says:

      I thought the same thing. She was a pretty teen but that sometimes doesn’t age well, but she really has matured into a beautiful woman. And naturally sophisticated, versus that silly ‘Kate Holmes’ phase of her marriage. The bob, the put on voice, the whole thing was ridiculous.

      • Toxic Shock Avenger says:

        Gotta admit, I miss The Bob. She AND her hair are gorgeous, period, but that bob made me want short hair. (Fortunately I did not cut mine off, knowing that only an actual head+neck transplant would make it work. As the hairdresser joke goes…”it’s a comb, honey, not a wand.”)

    • Myrna says:

      If only she’d dress this way all the time.
      Simply gorgeous.
      She’s so tall and lovely, but when she dresses down, her style is awkward and unflattering.
      High waisted wide legged trousers are her friend – glamorous and she has the height to carry them.

      She was so very pretty in Dawson’s Creek and she did mature into a woman just as pretty.
      And it’s wonderful to see the clear minded happy smile.
      Stark contrast from her crazy, sick, scary Tom Cruise days.

      • Alicat1822 says:

        Just chiming in on the Katie love! She’s classy, smart and brave. A good egg, in addition to being beautiful and talented. I wish she would do a “Chicago” style movie/musical adaptation.

    • isabelle says:

      She looks natural. Not botoxed and ‘fake’. She looks great.

    • Angel says:

      I was just thinking that. She looks so relaxed, real sexy, the kind of Woman sexy (with a capital W!) that comes from knowing yourself and liking yourself or at least not giving a damn:)

  9. Patricia says:

    Awwww those pics. Katie’s face makes me think of those moments when my own child falls asleep on me and I’m thinking “he’s still my tiny baby, still my little baby”. It looks like she’s thinking something like that.

    After all the years of bulls**t Katie’s been through it seems she’s determined to now just be an authentic person. She seems very real and normal, and like she appreciates normalcy. Wishing her the best. And also wishing Suri the best when the time comes for her to confront the fact that her father abandoned her.

  10. Mia4S says:

    I like to tell people I have two motivations for eating healthy and staying fit:

    1. Being present for my family and friends; and
    2. Living long enough for the REAL tell-all books on this whole situation to come out. 😉

  11. Sea Dragon says:

    Katie and Tommy Davis’ImeanTomCruise’s little girl is growing up!

  12. hey-ya says:

    …well Katie can look forward to lots of blinds about side pieces when this alleged condition of her divorce comes to an end…

  13. JudyK says:

    Katie looks gorgeous in that first pic. Love the pic of Suri nestled against Katie’s neck.

    Reminded me so much of my daughter’s 10th birthday party when I picked my little girl up (our method was her running and jumping into my arms)–a stranger walked over to me and said, “Your daughter looks exactly like you.” My daughter is adopted, and that was the best compliment I ever received.

    Anyway, these pics make me nostalgic. Tom Cruise is a creep.

    • Delta Juliet says:

      A friend of mine has an adopted son and he is the spitting image of her! It’s crazy!

      • JudyK says:

        That’s wonderful. When I was still married and our daughter was in pre-school, my husband and I went to pick her up. The teacher told us we had a problem because she was telling people she was adopted. We told her that was true, and she responded, “How is that possible? She looks exactly like both of you.”

        These are memories I cherish.

  14. GingerCrunch says:

    My cynical heart saw the #littleangels and thought about the crazy hell my 21 and 24 year olds have provided us! #laughingthroughtears #gallowshumorsavedme #waaaahimissmybabies

  15. Mata says:

    During the couch jumping era, Tom corrected an interviewer who called her Katie. Tom went on in this arrogant, smug, controlling manner that her name was now Kate. Katie was a little girl’s name and Kate was a woman’s name. He would only call her Kate. I wonder if keeping her name, Katie on everything was another way of taking back her identity from the tiny madman.

    Seeing the name on her instagram made me remember it.

    • Myrna says:

      Good point!
      I bet there is something to it.

    • Christin says:

      I remember that preference regarding her name. Cruise control plus ego, which is why I can believe he might even value not being embarrassed over his child.

    • holly hobby says:

      That wasn’t the only time. He used to call Nicole Nic. I think it’s his way of being the alpha partner.

    • Lucy2 says:

      The level of control he wanted over her, and probably everyone else in his life, was insane. I’m glad she broke free and has created a better life for her daughter.

  16. QQ says:

    This chick is soooo Bland that her only consistent Talking point is how Suri Has style/picks her outfit and assorted pablum… Is amazing that she still gets coverage!, that said the White outfit is the Kickiest chicest thing she’s worn in a while!

    Id be interested on if she indeed starts talking about something interesting or dating someone not Jamie Foxx ( I Still don’t get what people base this fantasy that they have a secret relationship/are about to marry etc)

    • winter says:

      you have never lied and i love your profile picture so cute !! yes i agree she is so bland i don’t think they dating either who want’s to hide a relationship never go anywhere public ever and deal with crazy CO$?
      happy that she giving suir a normal life but i can never understand why everyone acts like she was forced against her will to marry him ?

  17. someone says:

    I’ve always wondered if Tom Cruise’s mother was instrumental in helping Tom alienate his kids from Nicole. Maybe one of the reasons he wasn’t able to do the same with Suri is because his mother started displaying the Alzheimer symptoms and wasn’t able to help Tom. Yes there are single fathers who can manage everything on their own but Tom strikes me as the type of father that needs a woman behind him to help with the logistics of his kids. When he divorced Nicole he had his mother. Heck, his mom even lived with Tom and Katie when they were first married. Now it’s just him and his Scientology goons….He doesn’t have someone to step in and play the maternal role for him and smooth the way.

  18. gigi says:

    Sure looks more like Tommy Davis every day.

  19. Rich says:

    Why are we continuously bombarded with Katie Holes stories? No one really cares!

  20. Dinah says:

    Ahh, Suri is so gorgeous. She looks just like Katie, a timeless beauty, no matter who the biological father is. Tom Cruise admitted to Oprah he had the mumps, wasn’t it? Anyway, the implication was he is sterile and that’s why he and Nicole chose to adopt while they were a couple of child-bearing age.

  21. annie says:

    I grew up with DC and have followed katie a long time. Never cared much for TC until he got together with Katie but after reading some things that he has done….this guy has a mean and ruthless streak to him.
    After what he did to NK, not so much that she doesn’t see her kids, because she has and always had access to top legal people if she wanted, but because he lies as well as everything else. I think Katie saw a lot of things quite early on in her marriage and as time went on especially concerning Suri she felt she had to bale out sooner than later.
    TC has sold all his property in LA and seems to now live in the UK and travels all over the place making movies back to back. He finishes one movie and starts another one so when does he get to see his daughter?
    Also not sure about the Jamie Foxx romance, he was photographed with the mother of his younger daughter at a cook off.
    yet Katie was seen in a boat with a guy the other day, who didn’t look like security and nobody said anything, because the media is fixated with her and JF.
    Anyway she looks fab in the white pants and top.
