How publicists make an “It” girl
For Business of Fashion, Diana Pearl speaks to the stylists and publicists of today’s “It” girls to examine how those who hold the title reached the elusive status. Ivy Getty, the 28-year-old heiress, worked with Savannah Engel, founder of the PR firm Savi, to have her nuptials covered in Vogue Weddings. Since then, the two have strategized how to maximize Getty’s personal brand. Getty has since received media training, boosted her social media presence and now makes consistent appearances at public-facing events. “Our goal is not at all to make her famous,” said Engel. “Our goal is to create her brand. It’s not about the next two years, it’s the next 10 to 15 years.” {Business of Fashion/paywalled}
