Amer­i­can heiress, fashion de­signer, DJ and LA so­cialite Paris Hil­ton talks to us about her new summer fashion col­lec­tion, her favourite trends and style idols... What fashion and beauty trends are you lov­ing right now? I love prints and metallics for summer this year. It’s al­ways fun to ex­per­i­ment with dif­fer­ent prints. Also sparkle and glit­ter are fem­i­nine and con­fi­dent, which I love and all of these things in­spired my S/S 14 col­lec­tion, Parisian Rebelle. It’s avail­able at all my stores across the UAE, and is sim­ple and easy to wear, yet glam­orous. What’s the one fashion item you just can’t live with­out? A great hand­bag that goes from day to night. I also love sun­glasses. You’ve launched 15 fra­grances, which one do you like best? My last fra­grance, Daz­zle, was one of my favourites to cre­ate. I’m in­volved in ev­ery as­pect of the creative process, from pick­ing out and mix­ing the dif­fer­ent scents, to de­sign­ing the bot­tle and nam­ing it. Who are your style icons? I’ve al­ways looked up to women who are strong and con­fi­dent. My mom has such amaz­ing taste and I al­ways loved play­ing dress-up in her closet. She taught me how to dress for my body, not trends. I also love Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe, Au­drey Hep­burn and Vic­to­ria Beck­ham. What is it you en­joy about Dubai? I love vis­it­ing Dubai, it’s one of my favourite places. It is so beau­ti­ful and the peo­ple are so sweet. Women in Dubai are so pas­sion­ate about fashion and are on top of the lat­est trends, so it is the per­fect place to re­in­force my fashion brand, es­pe­cially my col­lec­tion of hand­bags and ac­ces­sories. What do you en­joy do­ing dur­ing your free time? I re­ally try to have a bal­ance. I have a lot of projects and these, to­gether with meet­ings and trav­el­ling, makes things pretty busy. I just try to sur­round my­self with peo­ple who make me feel good and who I can re­lax with. When I have a day off I make sure to en­joy it! Name five clas­sics ev­ery woman should have in her wardrobe A lit­tle black dress that you can dress up or down is a must. I also think ev­ery woman should own a pink dress for when they want to feel fem­i­nine. Big sun­glasses never go out of style and you can never go wrong with a great pair of heels and a big hand­bag. Beau­ti­ful ac­ces­sories make a woman look more pol­ished and put to­gether. Do you have any beauty tips to share with our read­ers? Ev­ery woman should take the time to in­vest in a good mois­turiser – one that will leave skin dewy and glow­ing. T hen, of course, a great light pink lip­gloss, to plump your lips. The fin­ish­ing touch is al­ways a beau­ti­ful fra­grance. The won­der­ful thing about per­fumes is they can evoke emo­tions, mak­ing you feel fem­i­nine and as if you’re daz­zling from within.
