Beachside glamour: Katie Holmes and her daughter Suri Cruise stepped out in heels today for a Memorial Day beach party in Malibu
They may have been relaxing beachside, but that still didn't stop Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise from putting their best foot forward.
The mother and daughter duo both wore high heels as they attended a Memorial Day beach party in Malibu, today.
The five-year-old toddler slipped her tiny feet into some gold strappy platforms, while her 32-year-old mother opted for some charcoal kitten-heels as they took to the sand for some seaside fun.
Suri paired her grown-up shoes with a pretty pink floral skirt and a white long-sleeved top, and wore her chocolate locks out and loose around her shoulders.
Her mother looked equally chic in a pair of denim shorts, a white v-neck tee and a black linen blazer.
She finished off the look with which a straw fedora hat.
The pair had a ball under the warm Californian sun, with Katie keeping a close eye on Suri who was particularly taken by a pink balloon.
Suri watched wide-eyed as other children played nearby with beach toys, but made sure to keep close to her mother.
Well-heeled: Suri appeared to be taking style tips from her mother
After their seaside fun, the tired tot required a helping hand up the stairs from Katie, as they made their way back into the party.
Katie husband and Suri's dad Tom Cruise was also at the bash.
The 48-year-old actor, who was also wearing a fedora hat, opted to stay closer indoors with his other son Connor, 16.
This isn't the first time Suri has emerged in her glamorous pair of gilded heels.
Just a couple of weeks ago, the little girl jetted out of Miami with her mother in a private jet, again wearing the golden shoes.
With gusts created by the plane's turbines, the smiling tot was left grabbing on to her head as her hair billowed everywhere.

The stylish youngster was dressed in green leggings, a grey top and gold shoes.
Her father Tom, 48, was seen taking a protective hold of his daughter as Katie, disembarked from the car.
The family had been spending their last few days in Miami while Tom had started filming on his new project Rock Of Ages alongside Alec Baldwin, Malin Akerman, Russell Brand and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Suri has been credited — and blamed — for sparking a multi-million-dollar mania for putting pampered kids in designer labels after stepping out in $800 miniature Marc Jacobs heels and $2,100 Dolce & Gabbana trench coats.
Suri has been wearing high heels for two years, with Katie describing them as 'ballroom dancing shoes for kids.'
Thanks to a serious shopping habit that has been indulged ever since she was a toddler, Suri's wardrobe is said to be worth nearly $3.3million.

The toddler has also been wearing make-up for two years and was spotted earlier this year making selections at beauty chain Sephora in New York.
She favours pink lipstick for daytime and a dramatic slash of red at night.
She also has her own designer bags to carry her books and cuddly toys — she has a smaller version of her mother’s Ferragamo Sofia bag and often carries her very own $18,000 Hermes handbag.
