Meet the Woman Behind Suri's Burn Book

If you're anything like us, you were monumentally crushed to learn that the awesomely snarky celebrity kid blog Suri's Burn Book is not, in fact, penned by Tom and Katie's precocious six- year-old.
In reality, 25-year-old Allie Hagan is behind the popular Tumblr which is self described as "a study in Suri and the people who disappoint her." Popular targets are Harper Beckham, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt and Willow Smith, but Hagan assures that, although biting, the humor is "all in good fun."
Initially conceived as a celebrity baby blog, the site evolved into Suri's Burn Book when Allie began to fear a full grown adult's critical musings of famous kids' star style might come across a bit mean-spirited.
"I am a 25-year-old...I thought if I was going to be …a little bit jokey…it would come across as kind of... unnecessary and possibly, a little bit creepy, so instead I decided to write it in the voice of Suri Cruise."
So what attracted Allie to TomKat's pint-sized fashionista as the perfect personality to channel for her blog?
"[Suri] obviously holds herself and her fashion to a very high standard," she explains. "I knew that she was the one who could pass a little judgment on the others."
And as it turns out, the choice was a good one! After only a year online, Allie already scored a publisher to bring her website's six-year-old's musings to paperback. Titled Suri's Burn Book: Well-Dressed Commentary From Hollywood's Little Sweetheart, the collection will hit shelves this fall.
