Despite Becka Diamond's moody, head-turning numbers (see: her closet overflowing with Rick Owens) and penchant for killer accessories (no pun intended: homegirl loves a good spike-y statement piece), she's not an intimidating side-eye-inducing It Girl. She's a diamond, forrealz. Once upon a time, at probably about 4 a.m., I got the liquid courage to approach/stumble toward Diamond, who was obvi looking all kinds of gothic gorg perched behind a DJ both at some surely hipper-than-thou downtown NYC boite for what I don't remember. #BlameItOnTheAlcohol Ever since then, I've been in head-over-Alex-Wang-heels for Diamond. You've probs seen her giving a good blood-red lipped pout and a smokey eye in many a fashion spread. Or, if you got the coveted invite, spinning grunge-y gems and obscure awesomeness at a slew of exclusive parties. This week, the recent LA transplant launched her very own website, 13:13, featuring immaculate playlists and detailing Diamond's fab fashion-y life and her fab friends. Yeah, we're in <3. I got Ms. Diamond to spill all of the fashion-y beans for this week's Favorite Things, and girllll, they sparkle. Happy NYFW!
