HILTON'S APPAREL LICENSEE WEIGHS IN: Deke Jamieson, senior vice president of marketing and licensing at Dollhouse, a division of BBC Apparel Group Inc., the master licensee for the Paris Hilton brand, remains enthusiastic about the collection, despite the fact that Paris Hilton is headed to jail. "We are behind Paris 100 percent," he said. "We believe in her and her status as well as her ability to sell product. This situation is not changing the way we do business at all." In addition to Macy's, he insisted the line will be in Nordstrom and other department and specialty stores nationwide. "Orders are flowing in daily," he said.

TV BRIDE: Sandra Oh, who plays Cristina Yang in "Grey's Anatomy," will be wearing a bridal gown from Amsale on tonight's season finale, when she marries Isaiah Washington's character, Dr. Preston Burke. The dress is a strapless beaded Chantilly lace and satin trumpet gown, with beading on the hemline and a chapel-length train. Amsale isn't new to "Grey's Anatomy" — this is her second season finale of the popular ABC series. Last year, Izzie, played by Katherine Heigl, wore a dress from the designer's Party Collection. The bridal gown is carried at Saks Fifth Avenue.

DOWN THE HOMESTRETCH: Hermès is about to give equestrian fans something to look forward to beyond the Preakness and the Kentucky Derby. Hermès USA chief Robert Chavez is planning an extravaganza for the June 21 opening of the luxury house's Broad Street store. After checking out the Rena Dumas-designed 4,000-square-foot digs, revelers will make their way to a yet-to-be-named location, which will be redesigned to look like 18th-century stables inspired by the ones at Versailles and complete with French horsemen.

FASHIONABLE FACIALS: After teaming up with Zac Posen on his fashion shows the last three years, Darphin is introducing its own facial designed for globe-trotting women and inspired by Posen himself. The company introduced the Front Row Facial at a lunch hosted by Posen and Ivanka Trump at Bergdorf Goodman on Wednesday. Zani Gugelmann, Katie Lee Joel, Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss, Kelly Bensimon, Marjorie Gubelmann and Genevieve Jones attended. Posen said the facial is about "working out a routine, inner restoration and beauty." Posen and Trump couldn't wait to try out the treatment. Last week, Posen closed his studio so the duo could put the treatment to the test with a Darphin skin care specialist.
