Time Out Dubai staff
Describe your style in 5 words: My style is classic, sharp and trendy. Where would you like to wake up tomorrow? A beautiful resort in Bali. The best decade in the history of style was: the 40s. Such a glamorous era in the history of fashion. It was very feminine and soft. The film I should have starred in is: Hitch. I love Eva Mendez’s character in the movie. The song that could have been written about me is: That’s a tough one. I’ve never really thought about it. When I tell my friends I’ve been selected as one of Time Out’s 20 most stylish readers they will: start laughing at me. The acronym that describes me is: LOL, because I’m always laughing. The secret to style is: accessorising. A perfect day would be: camping in Hatta. When the weather is nice my friends and I usually do a little off-roading in the desert, then find a nice isolated spot. My profound thought for the day is: the concept of bucket filling. Massive meals or light bites? Definitely light bites. I eat small portions but many times throughout the day. Sunrise or sunset? I’m not a morning person so would have to say sunset. Burj Al Arab or Burj Khalifa? I prefer the décor of Burj Khalifa and you can get an amazing view from the top. Desert or beach? Beach for sure. Mall or market? I love going to the bazaars and finding unique pieces. Hot or cold? Hot! I’ve lived in a cold country for 17 years so I’m all about the heat. Facebook or Twitter? Facebook for sure, but Twitter is also very addictive. Trainers or shoes? I’m more of a shoes person, I wear trainers only to the gym. Mac or PC? Mac all the way. I’ve collected five in the last year. They’re fantastic! More: Zeina Abdalla's favourite stores.
