Describe your style Timeless. Fashion is... A lifestyle. The true definition of style is... Personal. No one can truly copy someone’s personal style. Regional style icon Madiyah Al Sharqi – her style is impeccable. What do you love about Middle Eastern style? That we are not afraid to take risks. Everyone has their own identity – I never see another woman with the same look. What makes someone stylish? Just being herself in a way that’s captivating. Whose closet would you like to raid? Sincerley Jules. I need everything in her wardrobe. Most memorable outfit you’ve ever worn There are so many! But I think it would either be a blue-gold princess Bambah gown that I wore to last year’s DIFF gala or a pair of snakeskin trousers I used to own from 7 For All Mankind – they were so fabulous. Style mantra Comfort but still over the top. How does fashion empower you? It’s an expression. I’m such a closed person that I think my wardrobe speaks on my behalf. Favourite designer of all time It’s different depending on the season, but Zimmermann is one of my favourites because it’s so romantic and feminine. Ultimate catwalk queen Gigi Hadid. She’s an Arab girl who’s absolutely killing it. And I definitely look up to her when it comes to fashion. Fashion fail OMG, dad sneakers! I wish they could just disappear. Desert island beauty pick A really good Sephora mascara in black to give the perfect volume. A/W18 must-buys Definitely a Bottega Veneta Impero clutch and Christian Louboutin ‘Kate’ pumps in every colour. Favourite Mall of the Emirates boutique Harvey Nichols-Dubai is my go-to shop.
