JONES' SPECIAL MOVE: Olivia Ziegler has joined Jones Apparel Group's career collection as senior vice president of merchandising for special sizes. In this newly created position, Ziegler will report to Mark Mendelson, president of merchandising for Jones Career Collection. Ziegler was most recently vice president and general merchandise manager for Talbots, where she was involved in planning, merchandising and developing strategy.

The actress/model will also appear in Celine's catalogs, which are distributed to more than 80,000 customers. Hair slicked back, Jovovich was shot by Vincent Peters. Some images are head shots showing only a collar of clothing at most.

The European Commission is poised to impose retaliatory sanctions on U.S. products, including apparel, in both cases. An EU spokesman said Friday that the World Trade Organization has pushed back the date to mid-July for a decision on the amount of sanctions the EU would be entitled to impose on the U.S., which lost a dispute over tax breaks for U.S. exporters. The EU has sought WTO permission to retaliate on more than $4 billion worth of U.S. goods. Separately, the EU has drawn up a list of products valued at over $900 million on which it is poised to slap retaliatory duties against the U.S. because of punitive tariffs the U.S. placed on global steel imports in March.
