She has always doted over her six-year-old princess, but today Katie Holmes' desire to keep little Suri happy went into overdrive in her latest outing with the mini fashionista.
The actress, who announced plans to divorce Tom Cruise late last month, continued to keep their daughter entertained as they visited the Children’s Museum of the Arts today.
Both looked impeccably stylish, with the mother-of-one leading the way in a red and blue striped dress.
Quality time: Katie Holmes squeezed in an outing with Suri Cruise at the Children's Museum of the Arts in New York City today
The long-sleeve frock fell mid-thigh, putting her slender pins on parade yet flattering her somewhat gaunt frame.
Just her mother, Suri kept her long brunette locks out and donned flat pumps to traipse the streets of Manhattan.
Cuddling up: Tom Cruise's daughter surrounded herself with toys and a blanket
She surrounded herself with a comfort blanket and cuddly toys as the VIPs were guided into the venue by staff.
Katie was later seen without her child as she made a business stop at the Time Warner Center in the Big Apple, while Suri went to the Puppy City pet shop in Brooklyn with friends.
Suri clearly looks up to her mum in the styles stakes and donned a burnt orange number similar to the one Holmes was seen in the day before.

While mother's away: Suri and friends later went to to the Puppy City pet shop
The former Dawson’s Creek actress stepped out to grab a coffee with her mother Kathleen on Friday.
Earlier in the day Katie took Suri out, treating her again to some new toys and a face painting session.
The pair enjoyed some quality time together at swanky toy shop FAO Schwarz, where the Batman Begins star could not resist spoiling her.
She also took her and a young friend for a lunch at coffee shop Via Quadronno.
