Harley Viera-Newton

Thursday, July 14, 2011

This gorgeous London native isn’t your average model-DJ-musician. Yes, the 23-year-old stunner’s rap sheet includes modeling in Cole Hann and DKNY campaigns and spinning at hot spots the Beatrice Inn, Lit and Santos, but this girl about town’s most impressive gig yet is not your average nine to five. Viera-Newton is the house DJ and Beauty and Social Ambassador for Dior’s makeup line, meaning that the musician does everything from consulting Dior on new releases to hosting and DJing events for the luxury brand. If anyone is the right girl for this endeavor, it’s the multi-talented Viera-Newton; the sometime model is the bass player for the band Lissy Trullie and former intern of famed photographer Mario Testino. She grew up in L.A. but ventured New York to study Egyptology at N.Y.U. Her genes are quite impressive too: her father is Ashley Newton, president of Columbia Records and her mother is Brazilian model Cristina Viera-Newton, co-founder of Tom Binns jewelry line. The young DJ and regular on the nightlife scene was signed to Roc Nation by rap mogul Jay-Z in early 2011. There seems to be no stopping this girl. Viera-Newton is frequently seen enjoying her jet-set life with bff and fellow DJ Cassie Coane by her side.
