In a world that is increasingly becoming smaller, getting discovered and enjoying a successful career is not going to happen without hard work, a strong work ethic and a proven support team. Getting discovered doesn't happen by accident. The fashion and entertainment industries are a tough business and with Diane in your corner, you are not only in capable hands, you are already on your way to achieving success.

Diane and her team are you "A" team. They prepare, nurture and develop their models and talent to have all of the knowledge and savvy necessary to move into a successful career. They bring passion, integrity, and a commitment to always look out for the best interest of their Diane Dick Legends.



Having started her own modeling career when she was just 12 years old, Diane really took off after signing with an agency in Albuquerque at 19. Realizing many successes and having appeared in fashion print, runway, commercials and film, Diane developed deep roots and acumen within the businesses of fashion and entertainment. Inspired by her own mentors, she then turned her passion toward others and opened doors to the Dian Dick International Model and Talent Agency in Amarillo, TX.




The spring runways were many things: An '80's throwback, a tale of romance, a glitter-filled fashion party. So break out the sparkle, put away the powder, stock up on blush, and get prepared for a season where anything and everything goes - as long as you're having fun doing it.




Get ready to party like it's 1999 - 1980, or 2016. hair and makeup artists channeled club kids past and present, breaking out all the lash glue, hair baubles, and glitter they could find. "We're really just having fun and embracing makeup this season," said makeup artist Pat McGrath.




"I've done about ten different versions of the low side part this season," hairstylist Anthony Turner said backstage at Salvatore Ferragamo. And that was just in Milan. By the time we got to Paris it was clear the side part would reign supreme for spring 2017. "it feels authoritative," said Turner. "A middle part is pretty, but a low side part makes you look like you mean business.




We saw every color of the rainbow on the runways, What we didn't see was any other makeup. "It's all about one bold element on clean skin," said McGrath. The effect was artsy on eyes, striking on lips, and totally WTF on the ears at Proenza Schouler. But McGrath summed up the whole trend in one word: "daring."




Sharp, precise, and tight as hell (just ask the models), this season's braids call for a leather jacket and a devil-may-care attitude. They key to getting them so clean? Rubbing a bit of styling cream or one of the new pomade/gel hybrid products between your palms before braiding to keep strands together and add grip.




Swaths of Chiffon tucked into rumpled waves. Tea-stained eyes and lips. Wisps of hair grazing the cheekbones. Lines from a sonnet? Nope, just this season's poetic hair and makeup looks.




It might be time to consider growing out those layers. The coolest cuts this season were all one length, with hairstylists hacking off the models' ends to give them blunt bangs, bobs, and lobs. "We've done a lot of extreme cuts the past few seasons," said hairstylist Guido, "but I feel these styles are extreme in their simplicity and shocking in how minimal they are. It's funny how something so simple can make such a big statement."


MAJOR '80s


While designers brought back shoulder pads and ruffles, hair and makeup artists brought back side ponytails, M.A.C. Spice Lip Pencil, and bright blush applied high up on the cheekbones - a technique know as draping. The way to keep the look fresh and not costumey is by keeping the foundation light and the products creamy - and whatever you do, put down the can of hair spray.




"Designers wanted everything to have a glow," said makeup artist Val Garland. Their request was taken to the extreme with makeup artists using gloss in lieu of shimmer and hairstylists going through tubes of gel to five the hair and skin mirror-like levels of shine. "We saw matte hair for a long time," said Guido. "So now shine all of a sudden feels new and startling in a way."

For street-style stars and Hollywood A-listers, Mark Cross's box bag has long been a sartorial staple. It's elegant and timeless, yet unexpectedly modern and can go with just about any outfit. Thanks to its streamlined design and iconic customers - Grace Kelly famously carried a Mark Cross satchel in Hitchcock's 1954 thriller, Rear Window - the bag's covetable status is nearly comparable to that of Hermes's Birkin and Chanel's classic flap (minus the long wait list). And just when we thought the bag couldn't get any better, Mark Cross has collaborated with "It" girl and super fan Harley Viera Newton on a new style fit for cool girls of every stripe.


Known for her vintage-inspired style and penchant for floral dresses—you'll rarely spot the DJ wearing pants—Viera Newton approached the Mark Cross team to create a rattan bag that's as functional as it is chic. Named the Harley Rattan, the style is a hybrid of the brand's signature Grace bag and a wicker basket that's perfect for any casual outing. "I realized every single time I get dressed, I reach for the box bag," Viera Newton tells Allure. "I’m a huge fan of the Grace bags. Every time I go into the Mark Cross studio, I’m always looking for new colors and sizes to try out."


Viera Newton is no stranger to collaborations. Three years ago, she partnered with Diane Von Furstenberg to create an assortment of accessories inspired by her beloved rescue cat, Marmite. She also launched a line of playful, retro frocks for her fashion line, HVN, earlier this year. For her brand's first look book, Viera Newton styled the dresses with her tried-and-true box bags—and inadvertently included them again in her second collection. "I tried to come up with new accessories to use for the second look book," she says, "but honestly couldn’t, and I ended up using Mark Cross again. I’m very devoted."

Even though winter has officially begun today, we think the Harley Rattan bag is the chic summer accessory you need for just about every occasion. Light and airy, it's the perfect companion for a day at the beach, an outdoor wedding, and even a night on the town. Take a style cue from Viera Newton and pair the purse with a fun floral or gingham dress when the weather starts to warm up. During the colder months, the bag's candy-hued trim can add an unexpected dose of color to your standard monochromatic look, instantly elevating your winter dressing game to a whole other level. "The great thing about the bag is that the shape is so classic," she says. "When it's cold, pair it with a big cozy sweater or a cashmere coat—really, you can style it with just about anything."
