Diya Ajit’s 60 second style guide

Confident dog lover with a fondness for beaches should have starred in cult French films

Quick fire Q&A, Dia

Describe your style in 5 words: urban, boho, androgynous, chic, bold.
Where would you like to wake up tomorrow? in a tent on a beach wearing last night's mascara, rollerskates and drenched in spray-on glitter.
The best decade in the history of style was: my favourite style influences at the moment are from the 60s and the 80s.
The film I should have starred in is: Anna Karina's role in Jean Luc Godard's Pierrot le Fou (1965).
The song that could have been written about me is: hmmmm.
When I tell my friends I’ve been selected as one of Time Out’s 20 most stylish readers they will: hit the 'Like' button on my Facebook post of it.
The acronym that describes me is: OCD (Obsessive compulsive disorder). I'm a neat freak and repetitive number sequences have a therapeutic effect on me.
The secret to style is: confidence and the ability to smile even if your toes are bleeding from wearing ridiculously high heels.
A perfect day would be: a day that includes surfing with my friends, spooning with my Labrador Lucy and lying in a hammock with any book by Alexander McCall Smith.
My profound thought for the day is: people always say to expect the unexpected. So if you expect the unexpected then the unexpected becomes the expected. So really you're just expecting the expected
Massive meals or light bites? Light bites.
Rock star, film star or sports star? Rock star! Now if only I could sing.
Sunrise or sunset? I'm the worst morning person in the world but, one espresso down, nothing is more beautiful than sunrise over a body of water.
Burj Al Arab or Burj Khalifa? I often spend my early mornings stand-up paddle boarding around the Burj Al Arab.
Desert or beach? My nickname is 'mermaid'.
The song that could have been written about me is: this 80s song was a hit the year I was born, "She Blinded Me With Science" by Thomas Dolby.
Mall or market? Market. I get cabin fever in malls.
Hot or cold? Hot showers, hot chips and hot-blooded creatures. Cold breeze and cold calls.
Facebook or Twitter? Facebook for its intimacy.
Trainers or shoes? Shoes. I have more than 50 pairs and shoe-shopping is my biggest vice.
Mac or PC? Mac.
