(page 9 of 10)
Diana Hunt Johnson
Johnson’s fashion interest is apparently rooted in schoolgirl fantasy. “I ran into one of my old teachers who reminded me I used to walk through the hallways holding the skirt of my imaginary ball gown.”
Today, she finds inspiration in her collection of more than 100 original sketches of dazzling Hollywood costumes. “I guess that’s why I’m always the girl with the biggest hat in the room.”
TRADEMARK STYLE: Something she calls “Woofty-woof,” which means, “flirty, sexy, dramatic, and most of all fun. It’s cowgirl to Cavalli and heavily laced with Hollywood glamour.”
FAVORITES: Good jewelry and fabulous shoes.
DESIGNERS: Emphasizing that she’s not a label chaser, she’s attracted to clothes by Diane von Furstenberg, Ralph Lauren, Royal Underground, and Roberto Cavalli.
SHOPPING: Saks Fifth Avenue and Lori Karbal.
TIP: “Work your best assets. If you’ve got great legs, wear short skirts and gorgeous high heels.”
PERSONAL: She’s a supporter of Suite Dreams, Grace Centers of Hope, and Lighthouse Path.
