polo ralph lauren insta icons

Meet Dalia Nsouli, Dana Hourani, Jessica Fryer and sisters Nour and Hadier Algharabally, or as we’ve dubbed them, the ‘Insta-girls’. Creeping out from under the radar these social media mavens are bringing a fresh, raw edge to the Middle East’s fashion scene. To test their style credentials we got the ladies to take on Polo Ralph Lauren’s spring/summer 2015 collection – no filter required.

Before we reveal the behind the scenes shoot of the ‘Insta-icons’ playing with the new Polo Ralph Lauren’s spring/summer 2015 collection, we got to know a little more about the social media stars first…

Describe your style in three words: Ibiza boho chic.

Favourite piece from the Polo Ralph Lauren collection:  I loved the smock-style white dress. White is one of my favourite colours to wear,  it keeps in line with my care-free bohemian style. You can also dress it up or down to create completely separate looks!

Describe the Polo Ralph Lauren collection in three words:  Funky, edgy and versatile. The collection can be worn in many different ways depending on your own personal style, for example I wore the multi-coloured scarf as a head scarf.

Favourite Instagrams to follow: @tuulavintage is my all time favourite! She combines fashion and travel in a spectacular way. I love to follow @chelseyroo, a good friend of mine with a hippie bohemian style mainly wearing laidback Australian brands.

Favourite Insta-filter:  I love Amaro! As I like to brighten and enhance most of my photographs to keep the feed looking similar without altering the images too much.

How do you feel about being dubbed an Insta-icon? It’s a very cool label to be dubbed that’s for sure! Instagram is such a growing trend now, I am so grateful to have been asked to take part in this. It’s an amazing opportunity!
