Fashion Scoops: A Wall Delay... Flight Patterns... Guest Star...

Citing scheduling conflicts, Fendi has decided to stage its fashion show on the Great Wall of China later this fall rather than over the May long weekend.

Gray, who has three children and six grandchildren, said St. John has a devoted following on Capitol Hill and pointed to Cindy McCain, wife of Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain. Although she is still undecided on a presidential candidate, Gray was not indecisive about the appeal of her brand to the women in Washington, saying they fit her idea of the "St. John woman."

"She doesn't have time to have many changes of clothes for each special event and she has to have one outfit that can take her through a lot of events, and that is one of the hallmarks of our label," Gray said.

For women like Tricia Lott, wife of Sen. Trent Lott, the St. John line is a perfect fit for her traveling lifestyle, but she has to stay in shape to wear it, noting she needs to get her "thunder thighs under control" before wearing the brand known for its form-fitting knit suits.

"So many people in D.C. travel, so it's a perfect travel outfit," Lott said. "You just throw it in a suitcase and it's perfect."
