Readers of Vogue, Elle and other glossy fashion magazines have probably seen ads for St. John designs in which a smartly dressed woman is surrounded by handsome, adoring men. In the past, the lady was Kelly Gray, daughter of the St. John’s founder. Angelina Jolie is the company’s new face.
Neither one will be at the St. John’s Boutique trunk show today and Friday on the Country Club Plaza. But if you stop by, you can get a peek at the new fall line and score free champagne and appetizers. Drop in at 234 Nichols Road between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. today or
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday. Preview the black-and-white-themed clothing, which hits stores in late July. Black ankle- and knee-high boots are paired with white fur-trimmed jackets, tweed dresses and black slouchy hats. Call 816-531-9400 for more information.
