As one of Tinseltown's most stylish tots, Suri Cruise always looks like a perfect little lady. But during a recent jaunt out with mom Katie Holmes in NYC, she looked a bit more like a little old man.

On April 8, the adorable 4-year-old was spotted heading to dinner at SoHo's trendy Balthazar restaurant wearing a summery white dress and -- gasp! -- shoes with dark socks pulled up almost to her knees.

Its quite a switcheroo for girlie Suri, who often wears high heels -- though she's recently been on a fuzzy-piggie-slipper kick -- and has become a mini fashion icon with her closet full of designer frocks by everyone from Bonpoint to Burberry.

We don't know whether Suri was borrowing dad Tom Cruise's socks for her big night on the town, but it seems she did take a page out of her mom's style book: Holmes also sported socks -- a pair of argyles -- with her heels.

StyleList applauds Suri for her bold fashion choice in going Grandpa, but we sure hope she doesn't start wearing her pants all the way up to her neck.
