Gunn, meanwhile, said he is under no pressure to recommend only Liz Claiborne products. "The answers I provide to the questions OK! asks reflect the opinions I have garnered from my experience in the fashion industry," he said. "While the answers to that particular question refer to brands owned by Liz Claiborne Inc., I call out a variety of brands in the other questions — again those labels I feel best answer the question. The editors at OK! magazine know that, among the many hats I wear, chief creative officer of Liz Claiborne Inc. is one and they decide how best to identify me to readers."
Gunn contributed a handful of columns to the magazine, but OK! will swap Gunn's column for advice from Stacy London from TLC's "What Not to Wear," in order to keep the column fresh, OK!'s spokesman explained.

JUNO RISING: Diablo Cody, née Brook Busey, is an undeniable blogosphere success story: A talent agent spotted her blog on being a stripper in Minnesota and persuaded her to write a memoir, and then the screenwriting sample that became the widely acclaimed film "Juno," currently in theaters. (On Thursday, the film, its lead actress and her screenplay were nominated for Golden Globe awards.) Now she's adding magazine columnist to her roster. While Entertainment Weekly can't print the name of her blog (nor can this newspaper — as EW editor in chief Rick Tetzeli joked, the dashes in The P---y Ranch don't indicate "penny"), it can make her the magazine's first female back-page columnist, alternating with the likes of Stephen King. "She's a lot of fun, she says what she thinks, she's new enough to Hollywood that she still writes about it with a really fresh perspective, but she's really in the game," said Tetzeli. The column makes its debut today and includes Cody's musings on her press junket for "Juno." A preview: It wasn't as close to "Almost Famous" as she'd hoped. — I.C.
