FASH­ION

Natalya Zahkarova, one of the world’s top travel and fash­ion in­flu­encers, helps us pack for a stylish sum­mer

Friday - - Editor’s Letter - WORDS BY LIND­SAY JUDGE

What do you pack for a hol­i­day? Fol­low Me star Natalya Zahkarova shares her se­crets on how to look stylish in any time­zone.

You may recog­nise the name Natalya Zahkarova, but chances are you won’t recog­nise her face. That’s be­cause she (or should we say the back of her head) is the star of the Fol­lowMeTo se­ries of im­ages, which gained In­sta­gram star­dom a cou­ple of years ago. Pre­vi­ously a sports jour­nal­ist, Natalya soon be­came the fo­cus of her pho­tog­ra­pher hus­band Mu­rad Os­mann’s im­ages; now the cou­ple from Rus­sia travel the world tak­ing stun­ning im­ages fea­tur­ing Natalya hold­ing her hus­band’s hand – and al­ways im­mac­u­lately dressed – in iconic lo­ca­tions around the world. All of the im­ages are posted on Mu­rad’s In­sta­gram ac­count, which now has over 4.6 mil­lion fol­low­ers.

On Natalya’s own so­cial me­dia, she also posts im­ages of her trav­els show­ing off her style choices – al­ways matched per­fectly to the lo­ca­tion she is trav­el­ling to. Surely she must have to pack so many things in or­der to make sure she gets that per­fect look? Yes, she tells us – but with these 10 es­sen­tial pieces, you’ll be sum­mer style ready, with­out the ex­cess lug­gage fee.

This year, the cou­ple (hus­band Mu­rad usu­ally only ap­pears as a hand) vis­ited Cuba, a hot des­ti­na­tion for 2017
