Diana Lauto is a true island girl – the ‘tropical fruit salad’ celebrates her Vanuatu and Fijian heritage at Iririki Island Resort with clothing from Pacific Island Art. Embodying class with the right amount of cheeky islander sass, the ever so sweet Diana knows how to roll with the crowd and when to turn it up. And today she turned it up and took things to a whole new level with this fashion shoot!

Check out the never seen before photos of the stunning Diana Lauto 


Diana Lauto





I work at DHL as the Imports Officer and Desk Clerk.


What do you aspire to do in the future?

I would like to complete school and become an economist. I would also like to design a clothing or accessories line that celebrates Vanuatu.


Where are you from?

My father is from Erakor and my mother is from Fiji.


How would you describe your style?

I don’t really have a style. It is usually ‘Casual Friday’ throughout the week but when I want to go all out, I will wear plain bright colors with a floral or patterned piece of clothing to match with it. I like fashion because it defines who I am and shows what kind of mood I am.


Where do you buy your clothes from?

I usually buy most of my clothes from the second hand shops in Vila such as JCK downtown and Stret Price.


Who influences your style?

Hmmmm… I would say my boyfriend hahaha. I like the style of Ruby Rose (Australian DJ, actress and musician). I like to suit up for important days and let loose on the weekends.


What beauty products do you use?

The beauty products I use are just mascara and Brow Boss pencil. I do not use mascara often though because I usually have my glasses on most of the time. And I like to use the Brow Boss pencil to shade in my eyebrows so that they are always on point. My favorite perfume would be Nicki Minaj’s PinkPrint perfume.


Any fashion advice?

Wear what makes you feel comfortable, whether it’s a big t-shirt, shorts and loop earrings or whatever. It doesn’t matter. Just do you boo.
