Pageant queen Lynne Diamante from Cranston, Rhode Island has mastered the art of having it all. As the CEO and founder of OPTX Rhode Island, a luxury sunglasses and eyeglasses retailer, Lynne styles and consults for celebrity clientele and industry elite. Lynne is also an attorney, with the distinct privilege of being admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court Bar and the U.S. District Court. Lynne is an avid traveler whose favorite hobby is traveling the world with her husband Giulio and 11-year-old daughter, Giulia, a pastime Lynne inherited from her late father. Lynne and Giulio, who is an eye surgeon and ophthalmologist, have renewed their wedding vows 15 times in their 16 year marriage, most often in Las Vegas. Giulia is a dancer and field hockey player who hopes to enter a teen pageant in the future. In her free time, Lynne enjoys cooking, shopping (she has a self-proclaimed shoe and purse addiction) and modifying and driving sports cars. Lynne's family has supported St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for decades and Lynne continues the tradition in part by asking guests at her events to donate to the cause. She also supports Hasbro Children's Hospital, a local state-of-the-art facility that does tremendous and amazing work for children in the north east region.
Lynne is a pageant-lifer who is known for her signature blue hair tips, a color she settled on after trying hot pink, lavender, lime green and tie dye. She is a former Miss Rhode Island USA and proudly represented Rhode Island at the Miss USA Pageant in 1991.
