Imagine walking out of class and heading straight to the American Apparel office in Hell’s Kitchen to model a few looks for their upcoming campaign. Believe it or not, this is the life of 18 year old Dirty Diana, New York’s it girl. We recall first seeing Diana on Tumblr and immediately falling in love with her hair. The voluminous, dark brown nature of it had us completely fixated, and we knew we had to find her. We wanted a real, natural girl for our next Karmaloop Style Short and this was the perfect match.
After letting Diana pick through her dream wardrobe on Karmaloop, we started brainstorming ideas for our shoot and told her to meet us at our office in Soho the week after. Our director Gitoo recalls how easy going Diana was on the day of, “completely open and willing to rock with our ideas.” “We ended up teaching her how to do laundry, since she is too much of a superstar to care about that,” joked Gitoo, noting how comfortable Diana was in front of the camera, whether she was in a pair of Jeffery Campbell or Reeboks.
Check out this Q&A we did with her after the shoot:
What were you doing last night at midnight?
Reading The Catcher In The Rye.
If you could only go on one website forever what would you choose?
Tumblr for sure.
What are the best and worst things about living in New York?
The best thing definitely has to be the opportunities and the different types of people. The worst is the cold ass weather during the winter.
What’s the last text you sent?
“Don’t come to this burger place it’s a rip off look at these lil ass burgers”
What is one item you cant leave the house without (wardrobe)?
Does my red lipstick count?
If you could be any cartoon character which would you be?
