With all this on her scheduleÂ GMD were very happy Zohra could spare a few minutes to chat with us and answer a few of our questions about our favourite topic… Fashion.
1- How would you describe your style in one word?
I would describe my style as eclectic!
2- What is the one item of clothing you could not live without?
The one item I cannot live without is my leather jacket, it just completes any outfit I have and instantly transforms it!
3- Who is your style icon?
Â My style icon has to be Olivia Palermo, she’s the definition of class and elegance and always manages to look stylish wearing the simplest of things.
Here are Zohra’s Top 5 GMD Dresses
1)Beulah Rapunzel Blue Heart Gown
This dress from Beulah is such a classic beauty, and I adore the silk satin material of it adorned with scattered hearts. Â Itâ€™s striking with its clashes ofÂ midnightÂ blue with natural colours. You can make do and complete the elegant look by piecing it with an embellished clutch for that spot on timeless beauty look.
2)Gorgeous Couture Evita Maxi GownÂ
What instantly drew me to this gorgeous piece was its lace panelled top section and the striking sheer red colour of the dress. The subtle pleats at the bottom of the dress coupled with the lace panels is a guarantee to add illusions of curves!
3)Beulah Silver Painted LadyÂ Â
This dress is SO Grace Kelly, with its pleated neckline and thigh high slit, youâ€™re sure to make a grand entrance. What I think this dress does best is that whilst it is pretty sultry in a subtle way, it just oozes with glamour and class!
4)Dina Bar-El Sophia Â
Whatâ€™s better then sweeping into an event with an indigo silk-satin charmeuse gown that puts you in the spotlight?! This dress is to die for with its silk-chiffon ruffles falling gracefully across the bodice and that train will be sure to add a statement to your outfit. I thought this is a perfect dress to channel your inner Kate Middleton with the class but be a bit out there with the added train and glitzy embellishments!
On those cold nights, thereâ€™s nothing quite like a bit of arm coverage especially when it looks as good as this! Embellished with sequins and beads, thereâ€™s a tad Midsummer Night Dream feel about this dress and thatâ€™s what I love. Itâ€™s exquisitely graceful and looks perfect for a wedding or ball. I especially love how the dress looks free flowing and floaty so you can swish that skirt as youâ€™re asked for a dance ðŸ˜‰
