Katie Holmes Shares a Rare Picture of Suri Cruise for Her 14th Birthday

From behind. But still.

  • This weekend, Suri Cruise turned 14 and her mom, Katie Holmes (opens in new tab), celebrated the occasion on Instagram.
  • On Saturday, the actress shared a rare photo of her teenaged daughter on her personal Instagram (opens in new tab) to mark the big day.
  • The picture was taken from behind and doesn't show Suri's face—but does show off the birthday girl's incredible, pink and white flower crown, which perfectly matches her pink and white tie-dyed shirt. 

Suri Cruise (opens in new tab) turned 14 (I know, right?) this weekend, and Katie Holmes (opens in new tab) gave the rest of the world an Instagram gift for the occasion: A rare picture of Suri (opens in new tab).

True, the picture in question doesn't actually show, you know, Suri's face or anything, but it's still a picture of the elusive, effortlessly cool teen so we'll take it.

The photo, taken from behind, shows off Suri's long, long brunette locks, (opens in new tab) which the birthday girl topped with a fun, oversized, pink and white flower crown. Suri, naturally, matched said crown to her pink and white, tie-dyed top.

"Birthday vibes," Katie captioned (opens in new tab) the picture, along with a couple of double heart emojis (also in pink, of course).

Take a look at the birthday picture in all its pretty-in-pink glory below:
