Across town, Louise arrives at a photoshoot for Elle's 25th anniversary celebrations. Joe says Olivia is in Japan on assignment so he wants her to interview Karolina Kurkova. Joe, Erin and Keith - Elle.com's editorial director - watch. Keith thinks Louise is good but she has more of a TV announcer style and some things require a more subdued approach that Olivia might be better at.
Meanwhile, Olivia arrives at the Elle offices in Tokyo and meets Kana, the magazine's director of PR and Akiko, the editor-in-chief. They suggest Olivia should appear on stage with the designers at a party that night so Akiko can ask her about her style.
Meanwhile, Whitney meets Alison Brod, owner of Alison Brod PR, who says they will do everything they can to promote the Whitney Eve line if she chooses to hire them.
At Elle, Erin tells Seth that Louise did well at the interview. They both wonder what will happen when Olivia gets back and don't seem to think there is much expectation that she will bring good material with her. Over in Tokyo, Olivia is at the Tibi Launch Party and is questioned about her style and her first impressions of Japan in front of the audience.
Erin later asks Joe if he has decided who will be the new face of Elle's website. He says he hasn't decided yet and he's hearing great things about what Olivia is doing in Japan. Erin then says that Louise has been offered a hosting job in LA and that if she doesn't get the Elle job she will take that instead.
Olivia returns from Japan for a board-room meeting at Elle attended by Joe, Erin and Louise among others. Joe tells Louise she has done an incredible job, and congratulates Olivia on her successful trip. He then announces that Olivia will be the new face of the Elle website and says he is sorry for Louise to be leaving. Joe then tells Olivia she needs to work closely with Erin. "Are you OK with that?" asks Olivia with a smile.
Roxy later tells Whitney that her loyalty is to Kelly because she has invested in her. Whitney understands but doesn't know what to do. "If you sign with Alison things will change with you and Kelly," warns Roxy. Whitney nods her head and appears deep in thought as Roxy walks away.
