Suri Cruise becomes Christian Louboutin’s youngest customer

Suricruisekatieholmes First up: isn’t this an adorable photo of Katie Holmes and little Suri? Second up: having got the matching haircuts, it now seems that Katie and Suri are going for the matching shoes, with Christian Louboutin apparently commissioned to make a pair of bespoke (well, they’d have to be bespoke, given that his line doesn’t generally go down to toddler size) pair of little shoes for Suri.

I’m not quite sure what to think about this. While there’s a tiny  part of me that wants to gasp "OMG! THE WASTE!", I think most of me just thinks, "Well, it’s their money, if that’s how they want to spend it, fine by me." And hell, if I had Tom’s millions, maybe I’d buy me a teeny weeny pair of Louboutins too, who knows? Also: I’d really like to see the shoes.

Where does everyone else stand on the buying of designer-duds for the not-quite-two-year-olds?

    Buying designer shoes for a toddler that will outgrow the shoes in months’, if not weeks’, time is one of the most absurd things I have ever heard. Then again, celebrities do absurd things all the time (case in point, Britney Spears) and it’s their money so they can do as they please. In my book though, it goes down as one of the biggest wastes of money ever.

    Like Kathleen above me said, it’s so impractical to buy expensive shoes (or expensive anything!) for toddlers because they grow so fast! Not to mention, I think a pair of Louboutins is something to be cherished and well-cared-for – something tells me toddlers may have a little trouble grasping that concept. And yes, it’s their money and they can do what they please with it, but there are people in this world who don’t have food, let alone shoes…

    I think it’s an adorable idea, but I would have waited until she was older if it was me. Kids that young outgrow their clothes so fast!
