HER FAVORITE PLACE
Katie Holmes made another break from the Cruise compound to go to the place “where nothing bad can happen to you” – Barneys in Beverly Hills, of course. Barbra Streisand was browsing in the store just a couple of hours before Katie arrived, and no one paid attention – there were no paparazzi in sight. But the millisecond Katie set foot in the door a mob of snappers assembled outside. Hmmm… wonder who called them… a first floor clerk or SOMEONE else…Kate, followed by her Scientology entourage, headed straight for the designer department. (NO more junior co-op stuff for HER!) She took her time and picked out several dresses (a wedding dress was NOT among them.) She was overheard telling a companion “This is my favorite store.” Another shopper said she looked sad compared to the euphoria most women feel when shopping at Barneys. There was no sign of the “happy act” she puts on when Tom is around. Closing time of 7 PM came and went and the photogs were still entrenched outside – Katie was in no hurry to get home.
