Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Style -

Your per­sonal style in a nut­shell ... My style is mixed, de­pend­ing on my mood, but I usu­ally go for an ef­fort­lessly chic, fun, and eclec­tic vibe. Fash­ion in­flu­ences ... My style is in­flu­enced by my friends but also by the city I’m in and its en­ergy. I also find in­spi­ra­tion in mag­a­zine ed­i­to­ri­als. Au­tumn/Winter ’17 must-haves ... A Ba­len­ci­aga puff jacket for the cool weather and an or­ange Cé­line bag for a pop of colour. You never leave home with­out ... My lay­ered golden neck­laces. Go-to styling trick ... Mix­ing over­sized items with sex­ier, more form-fit­ting clothes. Fash­ion week essen­tials ... Power bank and snacks! Get­ting dressed for the day and night ... I never plan my out­fits, al­though its prob­a­bly a smart way to save time. I like to be spon­ta­neous. Pack­ing dos for the stylish jet-set­ter ... I over­pack way too much, but I do try to mix sim­ple essen­tials and a few state­ment pieces. Walk­ing for Dolce & Gabbana Au­tumn/ Winter ’17 ... My ex­pe­ri­ence with Dolce & Gabbana has been the most thrilling and fun ex­pe­ri­ence. Ste­fano and Domenico truly make you feel part of the fam­ily. They ini­tially reached out to me and since then, I’m proud to say I’ve walked my fifth show for them. Num­ber one rule of be­ing on so­cial me­dia ... Never take yourself too se­ri­ously. Peo­ple like to see re­al­ness, au­then­tic­ity, and im­per­fec­tions. Cu­rat­ing your In­sta­gram pro­file ... I try to use the same fil­ters with all my pho­tos to give a com­mon theme. Dos and don’ts on so­cial me­dia ... Do: Show your per­son­al­ity and keep it fun. Don’t: Only post pho­tos of yourself or make fun of oth­ers pub­licly. Best style tip ever re­ceived ... Don’t over­think it. The dif­fer­ence be­tween “good” and “great” style ... “Good” style is copy­ing oth­ers’ out­fits you like and fol­low­ing trends, but a “great” style is stay­ing in­spired while mak­ing it your own and start­ing trends. @car­o­daur
