Top Secret Suri Photos Released Wednesday
LATEST: SURI CRUISE will finally make her public debut five months after her birth, when photos of the baby hit newsstands in the US on Wednesday (06SEPT06). The hotly anticipated photos of TOM CRUISE and KATIE HOLMES' offspring will appear in the October issue of Vanity Fair magazine. A source who has seen the cover of the magazine, which features both parents on the cover with Suri, tells American publication Us Weekly, "She's the most precious little girl. "She has an exotic look - dark hair, fair skin and an adorable doll-like face." In the magazine, Cruise insists Suri has "Kate's lips and eyes," while Holmes think she looks "more like Tom." The photos, which were reportedly protected by guards at a Kentucky printing press before being shipped, were shot by celebrity photographer ANNIE LEIBOVITZ at Cruise's retreat in Telluride, Colorado in July (06). Vanity Fair reporter JANE SARKIN stayed with the couple for five days and found out that Cruise's first date was with Holmes on 18 April (05) - exactly one year before Suri was born. She also learned that when Cruise proposed to Holmes at the Eiffel Tower in Paris on 17 June (05), the actor got down on one knee and recited a two-page poem he had written. Holmes revealed during the interview that she reads tabloid reports written about her and her family saying, "It's really frustrating the amount of s**t that's out there." Cruise and Holmes both claim to be bewildered by the "Where's Suri?" campaign which has dominated the press since the baby's birth. Cruise claims, "We were always going to release a photo." Holmes adds, "We weren't trying to hide anything."
