with Amber Diamond / @diamond.fur
Happy to have you feature on Playboy! Can you give us a bit of a background on your career as a model and where it all started? I’m glad you kicked off the interview with that question! My modeling career started when my grandma, Inez Diamond, put me on a runway when I was just 8 years old. My first runway was for a Sears catalog.Before Online shopping consumers would order clothing from catalogs. Sears was a nation-wide very large department store at the time, similar to a Macys or Dillards. The catalog was sent to homes nationwide for mail-in orders. If you happened to go shopping into one of the Sears stores, you’d see me on the photo above the racks featuring the jeans they were selling on the rack below. This was my first big break, and this is where my passion for modeling, fashion, and film started.The synchronicity I want to highlight is this: My first runway was to feature a line of Easter clothes for a proper Easter holiday children’s fashion line. My ensemble consisted of a studious dress with laced gloves and a proper Easter hat. Quite the glamor for an 8-year-old. Now years later I’m on the cover of Playboy South Africa in their Easter publication for the month of April.
Social media is a very powerful tool, given your massive following, what are some of the challenges you face when it comes to marketing your brand and maintaining a solid following? Having a closer relationship with those you let in your social media circle can make or break some people. Social media is a very powerful tool and when it is abused that can be quite evil. For these and several other reasons, I keep a private profile. I also use safe practices when it comes to my phones. I use a completely different handheld device for my social media interactions. It helps me weed out the bots and the stalkers. Security is an especially big deal. There are near and far dangers that come with being a highly sexual provocative model. I’m a single female and sharing my images with the world has people wanting more and more.
Can you give us a breakdown of a typical day in the life of a glamorous model on set? On shoot day I am sparkling with good vibes!! Arriving on set makes anyone feel like they are full of fairy dust – that’s the best way I can describe that magic. I am typically accompanied by my makeup and hair artist as we switch from set to set or move to undisclosed locations. There are a lot of curiosities because we never know what to expect when we arrive. I say we because it is a whole production team and a big day for everyone involved. I meet the team and lay eyes on the shoot location for only a quick second before I’m swept off to wardrobe. Like every girl’s dream wardrobe team sets up the most amazing dressing room for me including diamonds, pearls, lace, designer dresses!!- and shoes!! One of my favorite things about wardrobe is that there are always the sexiest high heels to wear. The wardrobe sets are all put into sections that coordinate with each shoot segment. Getting everything on for the first shot is always a glamorous feeling. When it all comes together, and the exact measurements are tailored correctly for a perfect fit it always gives me an elegant feeling. I take one last look at myself once I’m set ready. Any last-minute adjustments take place here and once again on set.
What are some of the biggest misconceptions people have about what you do? hahaha yes, there are plenty of misconceptions. Some questions are asked more frequently than others. When people find out that I am a playboy model they automatically assume that I am high maintenance or that it’s going to cost a lot of money to impress me or maintain my attention. To be quite honest my favorite thing to do is to go fishing so that’s not necessarily high maintenance. Fishing doesn’t cost much either. People don’t see me as the type to be getting fish guts on my hands and that’s okay. It’s fun to see people’s reactions when they warm up to me and find out what I consider fun. I have never done porn or private porn subscriptions like Onlyfans. I’m a super sexual person and I need to feel vibes that transfer through touch and body chemistry. I feel like that is always an option just not necessarily my first option. As soon as I answer people when asked what my profession is a high percentage tend to want to ask that question next. Then probably the most common question I get after that is about Heff. I never met the late Hugh Hefner. He was a charming man with a business trajectory that change the lives of many men and women for the better. He added so much value to an industry that will never be the same had he not had his influence on it.
Now we know there are some pretty perks that come with being a beautiful woman, what would say are your favorite ones? To have both men and women recognize and appreciate my sultry yet simply elegant beauty is a total honor. The ease and acceptance when I enter a room is definitely one of the perks. That energy fuels my inner feminine power.
Given that you’re a stunning woman who undoubtedly gets a lot of attention, what are some of the nicest things men have done to try and get your attention? One gentleman from the UK sent me envelopes that were family heirlooms from the Royal Palace. The letters inside were handwritten from him to me and included chalk drawings of my previous centerfolds. He also included a pearl in one of the packages. It was personal and it was also an extravagant gesture.
What makes you feel absolutely sexy? Sunshine, there is nothing better than being kissed all over my body. A few days bronzing on the sand, in the waves, or on a yacht will bring out my freckles and have me feeling peaceful and playful.
3 things that you can’t go a day without? Clean water. I’m going to use this platform right now to talk to all of you guys about clean water and ocean sustainability. Second thing. Music. If it’s not on the TV or radio, it’s because everybody is playing instruments jamming out together. It’s a total sing-along every time. It doesn’t matter if you are musically inclined or not because the participation is what counts. For the shy ones, we have maracas and tambourine. It’s vitally important it is to schedule time for the many types of rest. Mind, body, and soul. For mental clarity. To re-evaluate your goals. To make food at home and stay in. It’s an honor system for me. If I don’t honor myself with the rest…I end up not doing well everywhere else. I get through whatever the project is much less gracefully if I’m not well-rested. Who wants to do anything semi-decent? Not me. So, honoring myself with rest is that self-care I can’t live without.
Anything exciting we should be on the lookout for coming through this year from you? his publication is my seventh feature. I have had six other covers and centerfolds. I thought I was going to take a vacation after this publication, but it looks like I’m already gearing up for another multimedia adventure. I’ll leave the mystery and suspense right here.
Where can our readers find out more about you and stay updated with your current events and adventures? This is a request I get all the time. At first, I was conflicted. I was skeptical about mixing my personal life with my profession. I’m conservative when it comes to the Keiki (children) and what is appropriate internet exposure. What I’ve decided will work best for me is a public fan page. That way my fans can question and comment freely and I can feel secure and protect the privacy of those in my personal life. The fans aren’t particularly aroused when they shoot a super erotic comment then two days later my grandma gives it a “like”. (Grandma is so supportive). If you want posters you can find them at Amberdiamond22k.com , for previous playboy feature subscriptions you can find those at magzter.com, for information about previous shoots, in general, you can find me on google under Amber Diamond Huntington Beach. I’m known as the “Hometown Hottie “and “The Huntington Beach Honey Bun”. Happy hunting.
Thank you so much for sitting down with us and letting us get to know you! Any last words for our readers out there? I’d like to share with everybody how I wouldn’t be here without the support of my ohana (family) it takes true love to succeed in this industry. I get plenty of real love, support, and celebration. To all of those that love me from far and wide the support you’ve blessed me with wasn’t ever taken for granted. I hope I’ve made y’all proud. It’s been said before but it’s true- It really does take a village. Provide for your village y’all! Aloha (love) each other. Malama (take care). Get your shit together and stick together.
