IT'S A GIRL: Jennifer George, who's due to have a second child any day now, has come up with a new way to show her spring clothes. Her doctors have advised her not to have a runway show because of the stress involved, so she will create a video for the press. "It will be very conceptual. You'll be able to see the collection as we see it. It's not a runway show, but the video has a story," said David Rubin, partner in Jennifer George. The video will be produced by Dah-Len. Every press person will have a video waiting in his or her hotel, said Rubin. The 3-to-4-minute video, entitled, "It's a Girl," features model Miranda. "The whole collection is very feminine, very sexy and what she feels the collection is about," said Rubin. "You'll see lots of clothes, lots of image and lots of attitude," he said.
