Olivia Palermo is always polished to perfection. Seen out this week in this clean, minimalistic ensemble, giving a nod to the neck-tie trends of Fall, her outfit tops Dh6,500. But you can pick up something similar from the high street with our steal picks…


Clutch, Dh170, Ginger at; Dress, Dh160, I Saw It; Scarf, Dh75, Topshop; Heels, Dh520, Vince Camuto; Cuff, Dh385, Ted Baker.


It’s a fact – as much as I would love to think I could run around the mall in a pair of Manolos, I choose comfort every time and am always found shopping in flats – not very glamorous. This month, though, I have found this amazing brand of foot cuffs, which instantly jazz-up your shoes. Check out the Vibe Harsløf collection at

Where I’m browsing online…

Honouring the late, great Zaha Hadid, Danish design house Georg Jensen collaborated and launched one of her last completed projects online at Moda Operandi. The collection, titled Georg Jensen X Zaha Hadid, features smooth flowing ribbon-like jewellery shapes and architectural elegance made in silver to black rhodium set with black diamonds. Definitely worth checking out.


Ring, Dh2,400,

Brand of the month


After launching her first Ramadan collection, designer Zeina Zain debuts her timeless A/W16 collection and I, for one, want every piece. Using mixtures of lace, chiffon and laser-cut detail, her shapes are hot off the runway. Check out a few of her items in our fashion shoot starting on page 58. Selling online and at The Cartel.

What I’m buying this month…

As I mentioned on my Aquarius Instagram Takeover week, I do juice cleanses regularly. Once a month I try to book a three-day detox with my faves at Detox Delight – which involves me carrying four organic raw juices and a soup with me as I rush around between stores and shoots, etc. So when I spotted this super-cute insulated cooler bag online to carry them around with me, I nabbed it. Brilliant for picnics too!
