i also think she has an interesting style. (i'm curious to what's holding her hair up so straight) i've never seen anything like it and also, i find out about a lot of designers/fashion+art personalities i've never heard of through her blog.

Every time I read her blog, I feel like I might as well be flipping through her events calendar while being simultaneously bombarded with a litany of dropped names.
like estella said, i'm certainly not in Diane's fan club
i dont believe how a stylish person can turn out to a complete caricature of herself, i dont even find her stylish since shes always looking the same through the ages..

as for critic.. what droogist said, far from, her blog speaks by itself.

she's quite 'hot' for emerging designers who think of her as 'important' but she's not too important at all
she's just someone who gets invites to events for looking weird, thats all she does..
i always wondered if she's actually styling or writting about fashion, so i asked 'people who know' but no, nada, she's just getting photographed and receiving invites for events to act as a mascot

sorry to say but imo she's a much over rated fashion caricature in urgent need for a new wardrobe and a fresh hair trick

Well,the reason I admire is the reason droogist mentioned....she's a tremendous mascot for lesser-knowns and emerging talents. And for that alone I do respect her very much. Also,she does write. Remember she used to contribute to Dutch magazine as well as doing PAP coverage articles for Vogue Paris' web site among other things. No,she's really not a journo in the sense that she's writer by birth. I think of her more as somebody who devotes her energies and passion to the core of pure fashion design and creativity and she represents this through her blog and the former Disciple endeavour. Remember she was a filmschool grad turned independent fashion designer in NY in the early 80's. That experience led her to doing what she does. And I think she is an ambassador for small talents in every medium,really. I think that's why she is so admired and respected.

I've seen her walking a few times here in Paris. She looks scary, like she's going to a funeral

Have you guys ever seen that film with Johnny Depp...The Ninth Gate? She was in it...or shall I say her black spectre of a figure was in it. In one scene towards the end when they're getting out of the car for that ritual gathering there she is in all black and veiled tall hair. She has a very striking presence Diane. And she's been dressing like this for the longest so it's just who she is.

I'm flattered to be working with someone (Diane Pernet) who garners such strong (and not always positive) emotions in people. The sharp disses to her character appear to come from people who've only caught a glimpse of her in passing, and they certainly haven't met her. She is devoted to her cause, for sure, and she's an incredibly generous and kind person. I guess you either "get" Diane or you don't (or don't want to), but if you don't, you're really missing out on someone special. She's truly a gem and the antithesis of much of the vacuousness that exists in both fashion and fashion people. And if you're a young or unknown talented designer / artist / landscape architect / bee hive collector / etc., Diane will dig you out of the abyss faster than National Geographic finding that "last native tribe."

Anyway. Diane and I are curating a traveling fashion film event, called "YOU WEAR IT WELL," comprised of short films and videos on fashion, beauty and personal style. If you're curious / interested or you might want to submit a short film to our Open Call, check out her blog (to which I also contribute): www.ashadedviewonfashion.com Click on the YOU WEAR IT WELL logo and a pdf will appear with the guidelines and requirements. Our first screening is in Los Angeles on 01 August and we're working on San Francisco for the same week. NY, Europe and elsewhere are also on the horizon. And don't hesitate to write us if you have any questions about the project or about submitting. Sincerely, Dino Dinco

Thanks for posting Dino! I agree with you wholeheartedly. btw,you and I share a mutual friendship with a certain flame-haired(another character to admire immensely)journo/organiser/PR ...that's from whom I was first introduced to your photography work.

And fabulous idea indeed!
