Zeina Abdalla’s 60 second style guide

Fashionista with an eye for vintage glamour shares her views beachs, snacking and the importance of laughter

Zeina Abdalla’s 60 second style guide

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!
