Meet Stephanie Khouy, a Parisian PR maven and blogger of Mademoiselle a Dubai

She definitely knows a thing or two about looking fabulous and working the Dubai fashion scene, she has been here for eight years after all!

Stephanie picks her essentials for the summer ahead…

1. Silk Maxi Dress Dhs1,661 Theory

“All you need this summer is a breezy maxi dress to inject some effortless style into your wardrobe. There’s a contrasting black split at the back adding simple elegance to this clean, contemporary look.”

2. Pochette Dhs3,595 Saint Laurent

“I’m loving the return to monochrome and minimalist chic this season. I’ll happily match this smart black and white calfskin clutch with a white maxi dresses or black cocktail dress to jazz things up.”   

3. CR fashion book Dhs73 Carine Roitfeld 

“The must-read of the season by the doyenne of French fashion, Carine Roitfeld – beach books have never been so glamorous!”

4. Sunglasses Dhs1,605 Thierry Lasri

“Inspired by vintage designs, these functional yet fun ‘Poetry’ cat eye sunglasses will add colourful retro-chic flair to any outfit. The ideal companion for sunny days in the desert.”

5. Hercules Knot sandal Dhs695 Ancient Greek Sandals 

“Gold sandals on tanned, perfectly pedicured feet are a favorite of mine. Simple, yet ultra stylish.”
