De­scribe your style Edgy yet com­fort­able. Ef­fort­less chic, I would say. Fash­ion is... A form of ex­pres­sion, my mood, a state­ment. The true def­i­ni­tion of style is... Be­ing your­self and ex­press­ing it through fash­ion. Who from the re­gion has in­spired your style over time? Some de­sign­ers who have es­tab­lished a name be­yond the Mid­dle East, such as Elie Saab. Re­gional style icon Queen Ra­nia is def­i­nitely some­one who in­spires me in the way she dresses. What do you love about Mid­dle East­ern style? For a re­gion like ours, there are a lot of taboos, and things left un­spo­ken. I feel fash­ion and the style scene here has def­i­nitely be­come a means of ex­pres­sion to show­case to the rest of the world. What makes some­one stylish? Be­ing com­fort­able and con­fi­dent in what a per­son is wear­ing. Most mem­o­rable out­fit you’ve ever worn The yel­low dress by Le­banese de­signer Nico­las Je­bran that I wore to Cannes Film Fes­ti­val in May this year. How does fash­ion em­power you Through fash­ion I have been given the chance to in­spire some girls and it’s been a beau­ti­ful jour­ney for me, whether it was through fash­ion dur­ing my preg­nancy or as a mother-of-three or dur­ing Fash­ion Week. Favourite de­signer of all time I don’t have a favourite, but I love Dior, Alexan­dre Vau­thier, Elie Saab, Ba­len­ci­aga and Ce­line. A/W18 style ad­vice Belt your blaz­ers! Ul­ti­mate cat­walk model Win­nie Har­low, be­cause I feel she ex­udes the true mean­ing of beauty and con­fi­dence. Favourite place to shop in Mall of the Emi­rates Def­i­nitely Bou­tique 1 – the cu­rated buy is in­cred­i­ble.
