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.

What’s your take on Suri Cruise wearing lipstick? No big deal or bad idea? Share your thoughts in the comments.
