When I was a kid, the priciest item I owned was a $95 Fossil watch with a polyester strap. Which is why now, even as an adult, I can't help but seethe with jealousy over Suri Cruise's insane fashion budget—the sartorial world is her oyster!
On Monday, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’s 12-year-old daughter wore a long-sleeve floral Dolce & Gabbana dress with a girly bow embellishment when she joined her mama for the black-tie Spring Gala for American Ballet Theatre in N.Y.C..
The, um, hefty price tag would make make most moms run for cover—the dress rings in at $1,195—but Holmes didn’t duck. Instead, she lent her sartorial support in the form of a matching embroidered floral number by pal Zac Posen. If the gala had been handing out best-dressed prizes, mom and daughter would have taken home the title.
Don’t think little Cruise is extra or demanding, though. In fact, her $1,195 is pretty chill in comparison to other celebrity tots. Blue Ivy Carter, for instance, has been known to rely on Mischka Aoki dresses with an $8,405 asking price, while North West gets her clothes tailored from mom Kim Kardashian’s very own closet. Must be nice.
If ridiculously priced lewks make you squirm, perhaps stay away from learning the cost of Meghan Markle’s wedding dress. Hint: it’s worth more than a mortgage.
