I think they dyed the baby's hair...

Sticky Keys said...

Of course the baby is gorgeous, but I also wonder about the hair, it's a little too perfect. And shouldn't they have had a blonde genetically? I don't know, I'm on Team Cruise man, sorry.

Sticky Keys said...

ps. I can't not stop laughing at the story title.

Yes, Suri, she's our baby!

Ha!

is it just me or that baby asian?

Joe R. said...

People are saying Asian. Or Eskimo. The magazine cover leans that way, I'll admit. Mostly, I think she just looks "baby." Babies have scrunched-up faces. Of course, she's an alien, and aliens don't have races like we do here on Earth, so...

Joe R. said...

Oh, and p.s.: nice to see you around here again, sam. Always good to see return commenters.

Kamikaze Camel said...

I thought the Asian thing too. Weird.

that is seriously a lot of hair though. I doubt Tom Cruise's folicles are that great that the kid gets it immediately after being born.

Speaking of which, shouldn't Cruise be going bald or greying right about now?

Stephanie V.W. Lucianovic said...

The hair is scaring the shit out of me. It looks like a wig and a little too much like Cruise's current style!

Melbell237 said...

I think her eyes look like Katie's. And I think she's wearing a baby toupee. Heh.

Sars said...

Call me crazy, but...that baby does look like Tom.

...Cruise. It looks like Tom Cruise.

Tara said...

You are crazy. Unless, of course, you're talking about Tom Cruise of Iqaluit.

marion said...

Eh. I looked Asian as a small baby, and had a massive head of black hair. And I am most definitely Caucasian (and have very different hair now). Kid looks like theirs. Now, that's not to say she wasn't assembled in a Scientology lab, but...

As for the blonde thing - why would she be blonde? Neither parent is blonde now, I don't think Katie Holmes was ever a natural blonde, and even if both Tom and Katie were blond as children, their progeny don't have to be blond (my parents were blond as babies, but neither my brother nor I were).

(Just to make it clear: I think that Tom Cruise is a ginormous freak, and Katie Holmes is a zombie, but nevertheless, I do think that's their baby on the cover of VF.)

The baby doesn't look Asian, but she DOES look like she's wearing a wig.

I love how the girl already knows how to pose for a camera. She was bred to be needy for attention.

"And the award for best actress of the decade goes to..."

Emma said...

I don't think that baby is real.

Carrie Ann said...

If it wouldn't be an invasion of my sister's privacy, I would post her baby picture where you would see a shock of thick black hair standing straight up (kind of like Suri's).

Did I mention that my sister is a blonde? All of that black hair was replaced by fine wisps of blonde by the time she hit 8 months.

Anyway, Suri is CUTE cute cute, no matter who her parents are. (I think she looks like Katie, but I'm not so sure about Tom yet.)

Who's Tom's new publicist? All this apologizing, people saving, cute baby displaying - someone's really working for that Christmas bonus.

To Marion:

As for the blonde thing - why would she be blonde? Neither parent is blonde now, I don't think Katie Holmes was ever a natural blonde, and even if both Tom and Katie were blond as children, their progeny don't have to be blond (my parents were blond as babies, but neither my brother nor I were).

I don't have too much (read: any) experience in the field of genetics, but I rarely see two people with black hair produce a child with black hair (unless they're uhh.. not white... hmmm, that analogy kind of broke down).

I've seen babies with that black of hair before, but usually one of their parents are blonde as mentioned above.

I didn't actually mean that Suri should be blonde, but that hair that dark was really unusual considering her parents.

Like I said, I have no idea what I'm talking about, but it was something I noticed right away.

Dinah said...

That baby looks just like Katie did on the first season of Dawson's Creek.

KT said...

I looked even more eskimo/native american as a baby and I am as white as they come. I think that what looks weird to me is that the hair looks like it's been "done" already. Like by a professional stylist. Babies are already cute, there's no reason to be doing anything to them yet.

Sticky Keys said...

Here's a whole lot more Suri for you Joer, because I know you care.

Her hair doesn't look so awkward in the rest of the pics, so that's one thing down.
