Suri Cruise & Shiloh Jolie-Pitt: the princess versus the tomboy

Brad Pitt Has A Daughter's Outing With Shiloh And Zahara In The Georgetown Area Of Washington DC

Star Magazine has the craziest story this week. It’s about this alleged battle (that doesn’t exist) between two three-and-a-half year old celebrity girls, Suri Cruise and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt. Every so often, some tabloid (or legitimate magazine) will run a “Shiloh v. Suri” piece, as if the two girls are even in each other’s orbits. I guess it’s because they were born around the same time, and because their parents are famous? Or is it because they both look like their little hell raisers, in totally different ways?

Anyway, I think Star was just using the “Suri v. Shiloh” thing because they wanted to show some cute new pictures of the two girls. Star ran the lipstick and kitten-heels photos for Suri, and Shiloh is shown in her recent outing in France, where she donned camouflage pants, a jaunty hat, a sword and a big gap in her teeth. If you couldn’t see where this is going, I’ll spell it out for you – the princess versus the tomboy. I would have skipped it, but some of this stuff is hysterical. Suri is too “dainty” (like father, like daughter) and Shiloh lost her front tooth playing football with her big brothers. Meanwhile, Empress Zahara was hosting a tea party and couldn’t be bothered with all of this nonsense:

SURI CRUISE: She’s only 3, but Suri is already a budding fashionista. Her indulgent parents let her choose her own outfits and do her own girly thing. As insider says: “Suri like frilly dresses and hates pants… she loves playing dress-up and sitting in front of a huge mirror, putting on Katie’s makeup. Suri has a huge closet, and she gets to pick out her own clothes every day. She loves high heels and she never wants to wear the same dress twice. One time Katie bought her cargo and Capri pants with matching vests and hats, but Suri said ‘NO!’ She wouldn’t put them on. Katie wouldn’t mind if Suri got dirty once in a while making mud pies… But Suri is too dainty for that.”

SHILOH JOLIE-PITT: Shiloh doesn’t have much time for dressing up – unless it’s like her hero of the moment, which is currently Robin Hood! An insider says: “Shiloh is encouraged to be who she wants, and right now she wants to be Robin Hood… she asked Brad for boxing gloves so she could punch Maddox and Pax better. She also climbs trees and wrestles! While Zahara plays with baby dolls and has tea parties with Pax and Vivienne, Shi recently lost a tooth playing football with Maddox and Pax. Pax knocked it out by accident, and Shiloh was stunned for a moment. But she didn’t even cry, even though there was blood in her mouth. After Angie cleaned her up, Shi went right back out and started playing again! She’s totally fearless.”

It’s cute, right? It could have gone to a sketchy place, but Star kept it cute. I love that Shiloh’s new hero is Robin Hood – she must have moved off of Peter Pan. Next up will probably be Zorro. I think it’s interesting that lately Suri seems to be wearing more pants – like these recent pictures of her in Boston with her mom. Suri has started layering tiered tunic or dresses over pants or leggings. It’s very cute, and it makes me believe that she really is dressing herself. What I don’t buy is that it’s Suri who says she won’t wear anything twice – that sounds like something Tom and Katie are saying because they know what a media hit Suri is, and they want to keep providing us with cute pictures.

Here’s Suri in Boston with Katie yesterday. Images thanks to INF Photo.

    They are both cute. I think what Shiloh wears very little to do with the way her parents live. They are always traveling , she has 3 brothers that are around her age, so she probably is always following them around and is hard to play with your brother with a dress. Plus look at all of her siblings they dress alike.

  2. rhonyc says:

    i totally heart lil’ shiloh.

    she may look like brad, but she’s a chip off her mom’s block.

    a lil’ future badass in the making.

    love it!

  3. posterboy says:

    It would be nice to see Shiloh in a dress once in a while, she’s such a pretty little girl but the way she’s always dressed she looks like a boy.

  4. Prissa says:

    They are both cuties. Shiloh looks like Brad, but she resembles her grandpa too. It’s funny they have Suri in pants AND a dress. It must be very cold in Boston.

  5. Praise St. Angie! says:

    agreed, both are adorable.

    Empress Z can’t be bothered with this pettiness…she knows that SHE is the real star of this hullabuloo.

  6. Bodhi says:

    I agree QB. I think Shi just wants to be like her big brothers!

  7. nanster says:

    It seems really silly to me to call a 3-year-old a fashionista!

  8. Shelly Shellz says:

    Theyre both cuties but Shiloh takes the cake!

  9. Catherine says:

    I hate these comparisons. Both girls are darling in their own ways.

  10. Mandy says:

    Adorable! But I’m not sure that I believe Suri refuses to wear the same thing twice. When my nieces were her age, they had one or two favorite outfits, and they would either wear one of them, or refuse to get dressed at all!

    Note to parents: it makes us childless people very uncomfortable when we visit you and your kids are running around naked!

  11. t-t83 says:

    i dont think shiloh loks more like brad…she has her mom’s lips! to me she look just like angelina

  12. Just a Poster says:

    The real difference is, Shiloh gets to be a child.. Suri, not so much.

  13. PJ says:

    At least it’s a refreshing departure from Jennifer vs. Angelina! Maybe that made-up rivalry has finally run its course?

    And she lets them all know that with just a slight head turn and an arched eyebrow. All Hail Empress Z!!!!

  15. Charity is Chic says:

    What I don’t understand is why these girls’ parents don’t try to pass some privacy laws in the US, like the ones they have in Europe making it against the law to publish photos of small children. I feel like they are all using their kids to keep themselves in the news.

  16. BitterBetty says:

    This is sick. and dumb.

  17. TwinkleToes says:

    Both cute but Suri is the best looking celeb kid. Her eyes are fierce.

  18. Jules says:

    I think it’s disgusting that Suri is being pimped out by her parents.

  19. Charity is Chic says:

    Hey Jules, who sold their kids’ privacy to People Magazine for millions of dollars? Suri’s parents or Shiloh’s?

  20. Diablo says:


  21. asiont says:

    shiloh kicks ass.

  22. l says:

    Charity is chic:

    That’s right Brad & Angie did!!!!

    Tom & Katie chose Vanity Fair to do the pimpin’ with!

  23. Mimi says:

    Hey Charity who take the money and give to Entities to help other people’s?
    Who spend 3 millions… (OK this is a “maybe” but they certainly spend more then 1 million on clothes)in ONE CHILDREN?

  24. KateNonymous says:

    Oh, good lord. As if the “feuds” of celebutards weren’t moronic and pointless enough, now we have a point-counterpoint on two little girls who probably have never heard of each other? Yawn.

  25. Charity is Chic says:

    Two girls who have probably never heard of each other? I would say they’ve definitely not heard of one another. I go back to my initial point which is that these kids shouldn’t be famous in the first place. Their parents should be protecting their privacy, not pimping them out to the magazines, People, Vanity Fair or otherwise.

  26. bizarre says:

    Suri = Paris Hilton

  27. Mimi says:

    So Charity u lose one point and then go back to another absurd point. They don’t now that they are celebrity kids and the reason that they are is because of their parents that make movies that WE pay to see and make they recognize worldwide make then gain millions of money that make then millionaires. But why stop let’s go further we also pay to read the BS that magazines writhe about then because WE NEED TO NOW what’s is happening in other’s people’s life… the mags fill our necessity TO NOW what the fuck they eat wear live fight and this mags do this paying unscrupulous people to do WHATEVER takes to GET A PHOTO on the children or they parents because WE NEED TO NOW if a children dresses better then the others or if one of the children loses a teeth BECAUSE WE NEED TO NOW and u still want to say that is fault of the parents if they are buying something or watching something if their kids appear in mags that sell to u me us we…and we us me and u buy or better u and me don’t spend our money on this shit mags we came to the Internet and say GOOD or BAD things about people that WE U US ME DON’T NOW because WE NEED TO NOW … GET THE POINT? Neither do i but if is ur culture DONT HATE THE PLAYERS HATE THE GAME that u that is living there help to build

  28. Mandy says:

    @bizarre –
    Paris Hilton with a Scientology upbringing?! God help us. No, Xenu help us!

  29. nita says:

    at 3, you are what your parents make you

  30. hello! says:

    Charity-you rush to judge everything about the Pitts and other celebs, then say that these people should BE MORE PRIVATE and keep their kids PRIVATE. Why don’t you stop fueling the media facination with these morons by shutting your mouth and not feeding the monster, huh? Every comment equals a hit equals more stories. But, then that might require getting an actual life.

  31. Skizz says:

    I always have to laugh at the people hating on celebs who sell a photo of their child. You obviously do not understand the nature of the possarazzi.

    The parents can take a picture in a controlled setting and give the money to charity, never let their children outside, hang the baby off a balcony, or let some stalker get paid.

    For the amount of money even a poor shot would be worth, photogs would be trying to sneak up to their bedroom window.

  32. Jazz says:

    Never wants to wear the same dress twice? When you’re 3, you wear whatever your parents put on you.

  33. Jojo says:

    Jeez, those are some beautiful kids!

  34. shenae says:

    and it looks like shiloh has a cleft on her chin..she’s cute..both of them are:)

  35. Diane says:

    Tomboy’s and Feminine Girls, both are great = )

  36. Judy says:

    Both those kids are cute and are very very different. Shilo I think has a normal kind of childhood ,rough tumble and getting dirty where Suri is not allowed to do those things most of the time she doesnt even use her own legs they carry her everywhere. All of these kids have their own personalities . I doubt very much if Brad and Angie will spend 3 million bucks on a kids wardrobe that is just nonesense.

  37. Cheyenne says:

    These comparisons are silly and pointless. Both little girls are lovely. But unless Suri’s parents give her a sibling soon, I’m betting she is going to grow up totally spoiled and selfish. Shiloh used to depend on big sister Z to protect her when the boys got rough but it looks like she’s able to handle her own business now. Boxing gloves indeed!

  38. Cheyenne says:

    Jazz: When you’re 3, you wear whatever your parents put on you.

    What Suri’s parents put on her are $3,000 designer dresses. She looks cute but I’ve never seen her playing like any other child does. Shiloh wears her older siblings’s hand-me-downs. The kids all wear each other’s clothes. Seems eminently sensible when you have six very active children who are running around playing all day long.

  39. Westender says:

    Both Shiloh and Suri are very adorable children. But I have to ask this: Why does so many of the photos taken of Suri, she looks so sad?

  40. crazydaisy says:

    the peter pan robin hood transition is a natural, since both characters basically wear the same outfit. my son had a peter pan costume when he was 3 and it totally doubled as robin. just replace sword with bow and arrow and you’re good to go.

  41. nuria says:

    suri is so cute, i wish she was my child, and give her a break shes a 3 year old GIRL, what do u expect ,i love fashion since i was two, im 12 now, and shiloh is so cute ,i wish i had them both!!!!!!!

  42. Elle says:

    Betty & Veronica

  43. Hieronymus Grex says:

    I know a lot of people can only express their admiration for something by putting it in the form of some sort of conflict or competition, regardless of whether or not one truly exists- BUT COME THE F&*K ON ?!

  44. damn says:

    Little Chastity Bono!!!!!!!! ha

  45. RubyKaur says:

    My daughter is much better looking than these two…..just saying….

  46. Ameia says:

    I believe you Ruby. I think Shiloh is cute, but Suri has a surly face.

  47. blue_planet says:

    Wow, only 3 years old or so and already wearing skinny jeans. Is it just me or do the Jolie-Pitts a little too fashion conscious with their children

  48. lennie says:

    Both are very cute little girls, as are ALL cutie pies their age. Suri is definately the girly-girl one for now, but I just have the feeling that Shiloh is going to be the real beauty later. Just comparing their features, Suri’s nose and mouth are going to be like Tom’s for me, while Shiloh – barely 3- already has some very harmonious features from eyes to mouth. Just my opinion though, let us see in 15 years 🙂 🙂 🙂

  49. Larissa says:

    Shiloh is THE BEST

  50. teamshi says:

    I’m sorry but Suri gets on my last nerve. She looks like a little brat that throws temper tantrums if she doesn’t get her way. She’s only 3 and she’s already got the “diva” attitude going. Her mother is no beauty and her father is one of the uglys. She has no cute features about her. At all. She was ugly as a baby and is ugly now. I can’t stand hearing about this spoiled rotten brat. Shiloh on the other hand is gorgeous! She’s a real child unlike Suri. She likes to get down and dirty and then go inside and play tea party. She has the best of both worlds. She’s treated like a normal child and therefor acts like a normal child. She’s gonna be a flawless beauty as she grows up.

  51. Team Violet Affleck says:

    Sorry, team shi, but you don’t even know her. I’m sure as a rich kid Shiloh gets spoiled too. Shiloh looks like a little Brad, which is just creepy since he’s not exactly attractive anymore. Katie needs to quit letting Suri turn into a fashionista but she’s obviously letting her be a kid, and she’s easily the cute one, whereas Shiloh isn’t now and will grow up with Brad’s masculine features. Tomboys are always such brats too, gotta go out of their way to be boyish, aggressive, and b*tchy drama queens who hate women. Non tomboys FTW!

    But you’re all forgetting that the Affleck girls are the cutest and the best!

  52. well for me shiloh is the best!!!! i think she’ll be the angelina II totally fearless!! i love her!!!! and shes totally cute!!!! for suri, shes nice<< but i think shes a SPOILED BRAT, ISNT IT!!!! I LOOVE U SHILOH !! HOPE I CAN WATCH A TOMB RAIDER II starring shiloh Heheh
