Earlier this week, we had a conversation with Diamond Rings' John O'Regan about his performance and music video style, and the way that his look has evolved in the whirlwind couple of years since he burst onto the scene. From dancing in front of a graffiti-covered (greenscreen) wall in leggings and an enormous denim jacket in his video for "All Yr Songs" to wearing a custom-studded leather jacket on Letterman, O'Regan has evolved from rocking vintage and classic sports jerseys and electric glitter makeup to rocking super slick monochrome, on-point accessories, and yeah, still a pop of color once in awhile. He hasn't done it alone either. If you've watched John's videos, particularly "Wait & See" and the more recent "Runaway Love," you might have noticed a little blonde cutie dancing behind him. That's no video extra, oh no, that's John's right hand woman, creative director, stylist, makeup artist, and, yes, cousin, Lisa Howard. Lisa does it all, even HAND STUDDING the leather jackets and sneakers that John wears, and that's no small task. When we saw Lisa at a gathering to celebrate the release of Diamond Rings' sophomore album, Free Dimensional, her fingers were literally bleeding from spending all day studding sneakers for John's Letterman performance.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
