DKNY PR Girl (AKA Aliza Licht) Unveils Her New Book Cover

If anyone knows how to build a social media presence, it’s Aliza Licht, better known as DKNY PR Girl. She’s the voice of the American brand on social media and keeps us entertained every day with everything from behind-the-scenes looks at Donna Karan HQ to Scandal live tweets (the perfect #TGIT companion). If you’ve been following her Twitter account, you know she’s releasing a book on how to cultivate your social media presence, a 288-page tome titled Leave Your Mark.

leave-ur-mark

The book, currently available for pre-order, is chock-full of tips from the expert media maven on how to build your personal brand in a professional manner. Today, WWD revealed the cover for the book, which features a coffee cup imprinted with a bright red lipstick stain. “The coffee cup exemplifies work — the working person,” Licht explained. “Every day of my life, I look down at my cup and there [are] red lips on it. If there is an icon that represents me, that would be it.” We’d say the lipstick-smeared coffee cup is a familiar sight to plenty of working women.

Licht enlisted the help of her boss, Donna Karan, to pen the foreword for the book, which is a guide to landing your dream job (and kicking butt at it) and building your online persona. This is obviously shaping up to be a must-read for the fashion set as well as folks outside the industry looking to amp up their online presence. You can pre-order the book at Barnes & Noble and at Amazon.co.uk. The book will officially hit shelves in May.

Anna Wintour Gives Us Another Model on the Cover of Vogue This Year! (Forum Buzz)

Christmas has come early after Vogue gives us yet another model on the cover this year. First there was the spectacular three-model cover from September and now to our amazement, Natalia Vodianova graces the November issue wearing an intricate piece from Chanel’s resort collection. Annie Leibovitz shot the Russian beauty at the Palais Garnier in Paris alongside Natalie Portman’s husband, Benjamin Millepied. Natalia is no stranger to fronting American Vogue alone, covering the July issue back in 2007.

Members of our forums are naturally ecstatic to see a model on Vogue‘s cover. “No way!! Another model on the cover of US Vogue? What is happening to this world?” questioned an elated Oxymore.

“I can’t believe they’re having a model on the cover again; it’s so exciting! Natalia is such a force!” raved Nepenthes.

“Wow. This is definitely shocking! I’m not a massive Natalia fan – she’s hit or miss for me – but I think she looks beautiful here and I’m extremely happy to see a model on the cover of US Vogue. I bet it’ll look fantastic on the newsstands,” enthused a surprised happycanadian.

Yet when the excitement died down, forum members began to pick faults with the cover image. “While I applaud having a model on the cover, especially OG. Vodianova, just like on Vanity Fair, doesn’t sell this to me. It’s not [an] exciting cover image,” shared an underwhelmed Miss Dalloway.

A.D.C. even suggested another cover girl for the issue: “Natalia is my ultimate favorite… But even I can’t help but think that if they were gonna give a model an only girl cover Daria Werbowy probably deserved one since Natalia already has one under her belt and three front covers.”

“Is it a bad light or too much Photoshop? Natalia’s face doesn’t look okay. And I don’t like this color of her hair.. It’s so cheap,” disapproved narcyza.

So, there we have it. Models don’t always make for the best magazine covers. See inside the thread for Natalia’s cover story as well as some of the fashion content. Don’t forget to add your own two cents here, too.

Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Recorded a Song

It seems that no area of the entertainment realm will be untouched by Cara Delevingne. The model and aspiring actress is both rumored and confirmed to be involved in quite a few film projects, so many that it’s easy to lose count. She just snagged a role in an adaptation of the YA Novel Paper Towns, is rumored to be the next Bond Girl plus she’s going to be in the upcoming Pan movie. With all these acting roles on her plate plus her modeling duties, it’s a wonder that Cara has time for other career pursuits. But it turns out the model is more of a multitasker than we originally thought. 

In addition to being a budding actress, Cara’s also got a pretty good singing voice and according to the Telegraph, she’s putting it in the hands of Pharrell Williams, who worked with the model on her debut single. A source tells The Sun that Pharrell and Cara plan to pop their latest collaboration on us in the very near future. “They’re going to release the song without warning, complete with video and global launch. They seem to have formed a great little writing collective and apparently it’s a huge song.”

We have no doubts that it will get a lot of buzz — Pharrell is one of the hottest music producers working right now and Cara’s at the top of her game in the fashion world. Their names are individually bound to bring attention to any project. Together, well, that’s a whole new juggernaut of celebrity and certainly a lot of press.

We can’t wait to see what hitmaker Pharrell and Cara release. We’ll definitely be keeping our ears to the ground on this one!

Jennifer Hawkins has confused us in her latest getup, mixing prints, colours, and, well, eras and styles, for an Australia’s Next Top Model elimination today alongside guest judge Jean Paul Gaultier. We’re just not really sure what kind of look she was going for, because there was so much going on with her outfit.

The 30-year-old model donned a pink, purple and black one-shoulder crop with frill detail to show off her toned midriff area, teamed with a monochromatic splash-print midi skirt. As if the look wasn’t playful and in-your-face enough already, Jennifer decided to add strappy heels and 80s-style comb-over waves.

Her fresh makeup and tanned skin looked amazing, undoubtedly thanks to her new J Bronze by Jennifer Hawkins tanning range. Confusingly, that also made her look like a beach babe, in conjunction with the salsa-dancer-meets-80s-school-girl vibes she was already putting out.
