Forget Armani, Donna Karan and Dolce & Gabbana – the next time a celebrity tells the world who she’s wearing, don’t be surprised if she says “Suri.”

It seems Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise‘s little girl is turning into quite the fashion icon.

“She loves clothes and she picks out her own clothes,” Katie, 30, said at the Elle Women in Hollywood Tribute on Monday. “She loves that, she [loves] running, she loves dancing, she loves singing.”

And the 3 ½-year-old – who seems to have been getting as much media ink as her folks – doesn’t stop at her personal look – she has a hand in mom’s look, too. She regularly helps picks out the actress’ clothes – including her Alaïa outfit that night.

“I got a thumbs up!” Katie said.
