Who taught you what you know about style?

Style is something you have to learn by yourself because it is a part of you. Trends, fashion shows, magazines and celebrities are only giving you inspiration. The rest depends on your personality and your own feelings about fashion.

Please describe your style in three words.

Feminine, comfortable, simple.

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

Blindly following the trends, especially when they don't fit your body.

Do you believe in role models?

As an inspiration, yes.

What are your favourite fabrics?

Cotton and silk.

Are there any style combinations that you object to?

Sometimes a mix-and-match style looks poor on some people, on other occasions it can look great. It depends who is wearing it, how and where. But I don't like the combination of huge platform shoes with short and slim dresses!

Which city has the best-dressed women?


Would you say that you are conservative or bold?

I love the whole mantra of the little black dress, but sometimes I can be quite adventurous in my styling.

What are the rules in the way you dress?

No rules. Everything depends on my mood and the place I'm dressing for.

Celebrities and style...

Can be very inspiring sometimes.

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

Shoes and bags!

A woman should always look like...

The way she feels with her heart.

What is your biggest regret?

I can't wear shoes as high as I want because I am 180 cm tall.

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

First and most important: trust yourself! Then, go with the trends you love but not because others love them. And last, have a little black dress — it always works!

Do you have any shopping rituals?


We will never see you wearing...

A pink dress.

Which new designers do you follow and why?

Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen (The Row) because they are doing the most creative but simple chic — fashionable and comfortable at the same time.

Who is the most stylish person you have ever seen?

I have never seen her, but I think that Queen Rania is the one I admire most!

What is the first thing you notice on a woman?

Her eyes and then her shoes. Both tell me a lot about her character.

What are the most treasured items in your wardrobe?

Accessories, because they can change every outfit with minimal effort.

The one image that defined your approach to style...

I don't think I have just one image…

Which fashion house never fails to impress you?

Giorgio Armani, Prada, Acne.

Is comfort an enemy of style?

Sometimes yes, especially when you need to be glamorous in the evening.

The best words of advice you have ever heard?

Express yourself, not the trends, because fashion changes too fast.
