Spotted outside of the Elise Overland show in February (above, far left), Diamond was dressed like a champ in Alexander Wang's Velvet Cape from the designer's F/W 08 collection; we love how the black trim contrasts with not only the shimmering gold material of the coat but also her bleached blond bob. Worn with a pair of Les Chiffoniers Leather Leggings with Zips ($843) and a treasured vintage tee, this is certainly a contender for our favorite Diamond ensemble. Though her cape-coat is no longer available, try Topshop's Premium Satin Longline Blazer ($160) with a pair of sleek body-con bottoms like Armani Exchange's Faux Leather Leggings ($48); the former matches Diamond's choice in sheen and color, but in the price department, our selection has the original beat! Another knock-out component to her look is our GOTM's affinity for edgy accessories; though she is rarely spotted without her oversized emerald green Yves Saint Laurent Arty Ovale Ring ($195), we think Rachel Leigh's Gumball Ring ($72) is a great semi-precious alternative to Diamond's designer hand candy!
It appears that statement outerwear and must-have leather skinnies are a bit of a Diamond trademark, as the look she wore to Alexander Wang's after-party (second from left) proves. Like her fashionable peers Lauren Santo Domingo and Vanessa Traina, Diamond has been spotted around town in Altuzarra pieces, proving that she has a keen eye for emerging design talents. The much-buzzed about line from the Proenza Schouler and Givenchy alum, Joseph Altuzarra has quickly become a sartorial star on the rise, and for good reason-clearly this is not your mother's mink or sweater set! Our GOTM rocked the Ivory Drop Shoulder Seamed Knit with Pearl Mink Tails ($1530, 212.826.8900) with Alexander Wang's Stretch Snakeskin Pants ($474) to add a hard edge to her statement top. The look is sophisticated, unique, and totally chic. If you are a fan of her fur-adorned piece, try Jill Stuart's Adelaide Sweater ($578) for a fringe-festooned crème choice.
While we appreciate Diamond's styling deftness with her beloved skin-tight trousers, we also appreciate the interesting way she plays with texture and color in her eveningwear choices. Seen attending the Sundance Channel and Proenza Schouler-hosted premiere of The Day Before, Diamond rocked Alexandre Herchcovitch's Smoking Sequin Dress ($1650, 212.219.2688) with a beloved pair of Alaia heels (second from right). Her eye-catching ensemble makes a bold statement with its multi-color, multi-patterned design and gathered sparkly material. Take a lesson from Diamond's playbook and try Haute Hippie's Illusion Fringe Sequined Dress ($595) or their Sequin-Embellished Tank Dress ($365) for your next cocktail occasion and be prepared to steal the show!
Of course, today's story wouldn't be complete without showcasing our GOTM in rock' n' roll's fabric of life: leather. Though she singles out her Rick Owens Blister Leather Biker Jacket ($2695) as her favorite piece of clothing to wear with everything, we like how Diamond mixed it with a feminine floral Alexandre Herchcovitch Beaded Dress ($925, 212.219.2688) to attend Anna Sui's S/S 10 show at the Bryant Park Tents during New York fashion week (far right). Though the Rick Owens jacket is a classic and well worth the investment, we also like Dallin Chase's Jasper Leather Jacket ($598) or Silence & Noise's Faux Leather Jacket ($128); combine any of these outerwear options with a diaphanous flower printed dress like Paul Smith's Multicoloured River Print Sleeveless Dress ($369) to get a Diamond-worthy ensemble. Just finish off the look with Proenza Schouler's Suede Snub-Toe Ankle Boots ($795) as our GOTM did (or try the Laceup Bootie ($78) from Deena & Ozzy for a more modestly priced alternative) and you'll be ready for any fashionable occasion that may come your way! For an even more authentic Diamond quality appearance, use a heavy hand while applying a dark eyeliner like Diamond's favorite MAC's Kohl Power Eye Pencil ($15) in Feline to look like fashion's newest It girl!
