Style Profile...Dianna Lunt, NYC

Dianna Lunt

Assistant Fashion Editor, Big Man Magazine and Freelance Stylist

Style icons
I love Lou Dillon's quirky, messy chic and the styling of Emmanuelle Alt and Marie Chaix

Describe your personal style

I build my daily look around
An emotion

Personal Style quirk?
Prairie tomboy meets Parisian chic

Favorite designers?
Martin Margiela, Marni, Dries Van Noten, Jil Sander, YSL

The first thing I look at in another Sartorialist's outfit ...
Balance of silhouette and the pairing of fabric textures.

Favorite stores?
Opening Ceremony is great and I love Maryam Nassir Zadeh in the Lower East Side, if I had a store that's what I'd want it to look like. Their presentation and store merchandising is so colorful, well thought out and inspiring, not at all stuffy.

Most stylish city?
Paris, because the women have a sense of effortlessness to their style and they're not afraid to wear color. I also love Copenhagen's streetwear.

Favorite vacation spot?
I don't really take vacations, but I used to live in Florence and I miss it all the time. I'm hoping to go back very soon...

Favorite cocktail?
I don't drink cocktails but I love a good whiskey on the rocks.

Favorite place to search for inspiration?
Vintage markets in Paris

I spend my weekends…
At brunch with my boyfriend, and reading magazines in the bathtub.

I loved her look in the first picture!

Mm not sure about the denim on denim, but the second look asserts a keen eye in layering. Lovely!

That denim-on-denim look is absolute PERFECTION. She's quite talented!

1 question: where can one get lace up boots like in the 2nd photo.. they are just what I am looking for

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:52 PM) : 

The jeans to lace booties look is very much the fashionista choice of the moment, yet somehow still feels original because the Target's and H&M's of the world haven't picked it up. She's quite cute.

Really interesting to learn a little about the people you shoot!

So funny! The jeans shirt, 501s rolled up as capris was the look of the moment, for a moment, back in the late 80s.

I like this feature & her pants.


Anonymous mmmmmmmmmakers said ... (10:57 PM) : 

Lady knows how to dress [although I agree with some of the above, I'm not entirely sold on the denim ensemble], but perhaps could take a tip on whiskey: leave the rocks on the street. Whiskey's best flavors come out at room temp!


Anonymous Jennifer said ... (11:12 PM) : 

Hey, that denim on denim is questionable but she kinds works it. Like the second look, v. nice.


Blogger uhuhuhjn said ... (11:15 PM) : 



Blogger Emily said ... (11:17 PM) : 

Her outfit with the vintage jeans and chambray shirt is burned into my brain-- I love dressing like that, and she pulls it off with such effortlessness and grace! Thanks for the styleprofile of her.


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:42 PM) : 

Hey! She's got Garance's dream hat!


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:08 AM) : 

I love the mostly masculine feel of her clothing yet with feminine touches such as red lipstick and heels. I am drawn to this sense of style because of the casual attitude of the clothes, yet the overall look is so on point. A wonderful mixture of neutrals. She looks comfortable which exudes confidence. A perfect example of how a woman doesn't need a short skirt and sky high heels to look fantastic.


Blogger Hawa said ... (12:17 AM) : 

i can so see mens fashion inspiring her wardrobe and it comes as no surprise that she would work for a mens is indeed effortless and i see no pretention what so ever!

Big Jeans are the look

Blogger Chateau de Chic said ... (1:19 AM) : 

This post I enjoy very much because I always find myself wondering about the thoughts and feelings of the people in your photos who we usually only get to see for a single moment.


Anonymous Runway Reviews said ... (1:34 AM) : 

interesting and funny sometimes.
Great questions/ Powerful answers.
Love the second look because like Dianna says : Prairie tomboy meets Parisian chic. And i love style for that: be casual pieces with powerful accessories or fabrics to be elegant.

Same shoes in black and brown? I like them.
Gorgeous skin.

Beautiful light on your photos

The 1st photo is one of my favorites (because of the different blues, her pose, the mixing of fabrics, NY cabs behind her...), so great to get to know a little bit about her! I love her shoes

She is so right about Parisian women! Like we all know from Garance:

Great great post! I love it. Sometimes pictures stand for themselves but it is also nice to get a little insight into the person's life. Will there be more?


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:09 AM) : 

We've seen the first look before, right? Or is it just me?

Well anyway, i adoree the denim look and i am so inredibly jealous about how effortless those outfits look on her. Also, i am in complete agreement with her when she mentions that she looks for the shape of the silhouette.


Blogger Graham I. Haynes said ... (5:50 AM) : 

She really pulls off the denim-on-denim well. The boots and hat top off the look well for an intentionally clashing look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:50 AM) : 

Great style,her outfits really are compositions!!!

what a great personality


Blogger Jules, London said ... (8:32 AM) : 

Double denim is hard to do. I'm not confident at all at even trying it. Still, the boots and hat quirkify it enough. I much prefer the second look with the neutral layering. Exemplary fall style in this comfortable yet elegant outfit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:37 AM) : 

My kind of style. I just can't understand the mania for such enormous scarves around the neck, they are not flattering at all, too much volume on the upper part of the body.

Loves her first look!


Anonymous Zenas313 said ... (8:56 AM) : 


I thought for a moment you were recycling your old shots, we have seen the first photo about a year ago? Sorry to have doubted you - that is a wonderful profile. She loves whiskey on the rocks . . . oh my!


Anonymous ChristopherGLORIA said ... (9:12 AM) : 

I know nothing about photography, but do you notice that on overcast days you can see details in patterns and color much better than on days with blaring sunlight?

I love the boots in the first photo - does anyone know where they are from?
Great Style Profile

Blogger cnmngrrrl said ... (10:01 AM) : 

I thought she was Molly Ringwald when I first saw the first photo. But in the second photo, she doesn't look like MR at all.

yay! i love Copenhagen street style too!! and i think she's managed to capture it a bit in her second look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:34 PM) : 

The hat, the hair and the lipstick -- what a wonderful triptych. From the neck down, though, is not impressive. Her shirt and jeans do her a disservice. She could do better.


Blogger Evgeniya said ... (12:46 PM) : 

Color? In Paris? I've never seen that much black and gray in my life!


Anonymous Holly said ... (12:50 PM) : 

I'm with her prairie tomboy meets Parisian chic!!! I love it!


Blogger Lucas Jones said ... (1:10 PM) : 

PERFECTION! Her thin frame is perfect for swaddling and baggy clothes. And she really knows how to frame her wonderful face.


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:43 PM) : 

Like others I don't much care for the first look and I agree that it is far too redolent of the 80's. The second look I love, a relaxed and feminine take on menswear. I love the lace up shoes and her pants, which with their tapered cut have the look of jodhpurs. All in all in both photos, she reminds me of Molly Ringwald.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:56 PM) : 

Parisiennes not afraid of color? I beg to differ, unless by color she means taupe.


Blogger krisnn said ... (2:07 PM) : 

where the fade line begins on her jeans... is that sunlight? i see the same line on the jacket she is wearing..
anyways, i've always despised denim with denim, the "Canadian Suit" if you will. but this woman pulls it off, and if there's such a thing as 'prairie tomboy meets Parisian chic' then she is the total embodiment of it!

another gorgeous post, Sartorialist


Blogger Carlos Alberto Silva said ... (2:45 PM) : 

The second look is so cool, very elaborated and well mixed. The first one reminds me of Bon Jovi in the 90's.. Helloooo, girl don't you read Vogue?!

Link me

I really like how you've questioned them, most of the time, when browsing through blogs, I never find names of models and people, and I get disappointed, but to see this, I am trés trés happy.

Blogger ingefaer said ... (4:02 PM) : 

Maison Chaplin." Don't you read Vogue?"
You are not serious with that question I hope. People with personal style do not need Vogue to tell them how to dress.

She has fantastic style. I love her denim on denim especially. I had reposted this photo to my blog when it came out (credited to you of course) and it is nice to know about the gal behind the style.

possibly the best shade of lipstick ever. perfectly suited to her outfit.
and i love her comment on silhouette as basis of style. i do the same!

Canadian tux? Haha...

Anyway wonderful pictures. And As for Copenhagen street style - well mr. Sartorialist you should pencils us into your busy schedule. We do try our best you know. But come in June that's the prettiest time a year if you ask me.

I couldn't agree more regarding Florence oosing of casual elegance.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:00 PM) : 

Wow, somebody should tell her how cool and quirky she is. I don't think she realizes it.

Yay, we are treated to inner-views now. I dig the denim on denim.

Nice one :)


Blogger robin said ... (11:19 PM) : 

yes, yes, it is beautiful but what about the shoes?? where are the shoes from? I am a recent convert to the sartorialist so I am sure this question gets asked a lot in the comment section but does it ever get answered?

I do like the style in the first picture. I think Denim on denim is very difficult, but by her excellent selection of size and color, it looks so fashionable.
Simple but different from others.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:01 AM) : 

The second look is OK, although I’m not a big fan of such pants and the whole ‘bag lady’ thing. I don’t like anything about the first outfit though: the baggy boyfriend jeans make her look short-legged and chubby (although she’s not), denim colors are very 90s, the denim on denim thing is also very 90s or just country, the boots have a totally different vibe than the rest of the outfit. I mean, I can sort of see what she was trying to do here but in my opinion it just didn’t work on a number of different levels.

She looks very elegant but not confortable, and confort is part of what we call chic.

Blogger Tim McFarlane said ... (11:25 PM) : 

The first look is way too 80's for me, except for the boots, which are hot! The second look works all around.


Blogger Etiquette Bitch said ... (8:50 AM) : 

"they're not afraid to wear color in Paris"???? Omg, you MUST be kidding. I just got back from 2 weeks there, wearing my red trench, and I stuck out like a sore thumb. This interview must be old, or the girl must be color-blind. In Paris, the women wear black, brown, muted tones and earth tones. But color? Um, no. Maybe at the offices of fashion magazines. But every day, in the streets? No.


Blogger Barbara said ... (1:36 PM) : 

Love these features. Please do more...

Surely she means Lou Doillon...?


Blogger Shadan said ... (4:25 PM) :

Blogger The Blasphemous Fiendess said ... (5:59 PM) : 

I'm Canadian but I have no idea what a Canadian tuxedo is. I love the look in the first picture with the denim on denim, which I'm not brave enough to do myself. It works because the shades of denim are different. I would like to see a black belt on the outfit.


Blogger noëlle {simmer down!} said ... (3:27 PM) : 

1) I have to agree with everyone who disagreed with the "not afraid to wear color" comment. If you want color (or less stuffy style in general), go to Barcelona. I wore a brightly colored vintage dress in Paris once, and got stared at and asked if it was a "costume".

2) Someone may have already caught this, but it's Lou Doillon, not Dillon. She's Jane Birkin's daughter.

To Anonymous @ 7:51 PM: The boots in the second photo are Chloé Silverado (from A/W 2006-7).

To The Blasphemous Fiendess: I'm from Canada too, and have never heard the term "Canadian Suit/Tuxedo" before. I guess that's because I live in Montreal. Too funny!


Blogger Badaude said ... (3:24 PM) : 

I think what she may mean about Paris is that they're not afraid to wear one strong colour. At a time. With black.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:23 PM) : 

in paris the most color you ever see are in the skies, not in the clothes.

her style is effortless and I love the layers in the second picture.


Blogger shibs said ... (9:12 AM) : 

I really really like her style.Perhaps what makes the outfits even more convincing is the fact that she looks so goddamn happy wearing her them.And comfortable.She may say her style is 'shambolic' but it definitely comes together.


Anonymous angelbuddy said ... (3:47 PM) : 

magazines in the bathtub...agreed. why is it such a perfect thing?...and love her description of her style. i think it describes her look perfectly!
