HIS SWEATER GIRL: Katie Holmes
has a soft spot for fiancé Tom Cruise
—and she recently bought him a few more. The pregnant Holmes saw Inhabit's line of cozy cover-ups at Fred Segal Trend in Santa Monica and snagged him four cashmere sweaters and five cotton henleys and polos. That ought to warm his heart too....
