Hollywood’s next generation of cinema stars celebrate Moncler, as the Italian luxury house gears up for their latest landing in Los Angeles at 340 N. Rodeo Drive.

 

With a disposition sunnier than Los Angeles skies and features bright enough to match, Dilone is the face of the future.

The Dominican-American model-turned-actress is a beam of untempered energy and charisma seeping into the seams of Hollywood at the crux of the inauguration of a youthful generation. In Ryan Murphy’s Halston, Dilone portrays supermodel Pat Cleveland, muse to the iconic designer.

Beyond her effortlessly captivating magnetism and striking, fluid presence on the runway, Dilone’s similarities to Cleveland transcend appearance, delving into a deeper connection.

“I think I’m known for my personality, and Pat has such a big personality,” she says. “She’s so dreamy. She’s really such a believer in love, and that for me is so inspiring. She’s a true artist.”

The call of the camera and ease of expression are natural to Dilone, who immerses herself in every project she touches. Be it a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, a playful dance routine to an ABBA son, posted to Instagram that alludes to her dance background, a role in the upcoming film The Novice in which she sings an original song, or the iconic supermodel she plays in Halston— authenticity and good nature flows freely from her very presence.

The name Dilone is synonymous with passion connoting visions of a whimsical model and a powerful actress in the same breath—a dynamic player on the field, constantly bringing surprises.

“If you think you know me, or you think you have me figured out, you’re probably wrong,” she says. “Good surprises only.”
