Why Suri Cruise Never Wears A Coat - Katie Holmes Reveals All

Why Suri Cruise never wear a coat -  Katie Holmes reveals all PA

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 saga?

No coat, but Suri sure likes her shoes...
