The three essential things a woman should know about style are…

Buy clothes that flatter their body type. Be a little bit original and take pleasure in what you are wearing!

Please describe your style in three words.

Glamorous, girly, and sexy!

What is the biggest mistake one can make when getting dressed?

Wearing white socks with black shoes, oh my God!

Do you believe in role models?

Yes, I am a big fan of Gisele Bundchen.

Which city has the best-dressed women?

Parisian girls are the most elegant, while in New York they are so stylish!

Would you say that you are conservative or bold?

It depends on the occasion, however I would say mostly bold...

What are the rules in the way you dress?

I go for glamour, elegance and a little bit of sexiness. Women have a small advantage over men in that sense... it's the ability to look different everyday with their outfits. We are so lucky!

Name one garment/accessory that you can never have enough of?

I am so in love with Shourouk. The designer is so talented and such a nice person. I am a big fan!

A woman should always look like…

Herself, it's the most important thing.

Who taught you what you know about style?

I would say myself. My mother was recently telling me a story that proves I was obsessed with fashion at a very early age. I was about one and a half years old and I would go wild in boutiques for their clothes and shoes! I think I was born addicted to fashion!

How do you select your clothing every morning?

It depends on the day I have ahead and my mood. I also like to change clothes often.

What is your biggest regret?

Buying a pair of Prada ballerina shoes thinking that they would be more comfortable... I couldn't be more wrong, as they are so painful to wear...

Do you have any shopping rituals?

Not really. I am very spontaneous, so if I see something that I like, I buy it instantly.

We will never see you wearing...

Jogging clothes...

Which new designers do you follow and why?

Right now, I am so focused on baby clothes! I am pregnant and waiting for my first baby girl in November. There are a lot of designers for baby wear, like Théophile et Patachou, Oscar et Valentine, and of course Bonpoint, which I love. I also like to check Julia Restoin's website for inspiration, there so many beautiful images there!

Who is the most stylish person you have ever seen?

There are a lot of stylish artists around me, but if I must choose one I would say Anna Dello Russo.

What is the first thing you notice on a woman?

Her hair. For me, the most important thing for a woman is to always have beautiful hair. It's the epitome of femininity.

What are the most treasured items in your wardrobe?

My collection of limited edition bags from brands such as Louis Vuitton and Chanel.

Who would you like to recommend for My Style?

My super friend Shourouk Rhaiem.

The best words of advice you have ever heard?

"Diamonds are girl's best friend".
