Watch Diala Makki Reveal Her Style Superstars, from Her Late Grandmother’s Necklace to a Bisht By Stéphane Rolland

In the latest episode of ‘My Style Superstars’, TV presenter and journalist Diala Makki takes Vogue Arabia through the most cherished items in her closet.
Proving the power of jewelry that has passed through generations, the first piece revealed by Makki is a gold necklace that is over 100 years old. “I only wear it when I want some positive energy or when I’m about to venture into something new, and I want the protection of my grandmother, may she rest in peace,” confides Makki. The second item—a Class of 2021 cap from her third graduation—comes with an inspiring message from Makki, who completed her second master’s degree, in leadership in media. “It has been a wonderful achievement for myself,” shares Makki. “I really advise all women during different stages in their careers to go back to school. It’s very difficult for them to go back to that sense of discipline, but it taught me a lot, and I think I’m a completely different woman after I graduated.” The third piece is a special bisht with gold threads that was designed by Makki’s friend and renowned designer Stéphane Rolland. “I wore this bisht once, and it is very very dear to me because it was gifted by him,” says the presenter.
Watch the video above for more on what makes these items so special to Makki, and stayed tuned for more episodes.

The streets of Paris are rife with color as fashion week attendees from the Middle East arrive at the shows dressed in monochrome and brightly-colored outfits. Whatever your favorite shade may be, there’s plenty of inspiration to go around and to embrace saturated hues void of patterns.
Karen Wazen‘s look for the Dior show was met with a flurry of appreciation as her 7.2 million followers took in her lime green number. The Lebanese entrepreneur chose to wear a shift dress with a high neck which was cinched in at the waist with a long belt, and paired the piece with a matching chain strap quilted bag from the brand. Also at the French house’s Fall 2022 show, Nojoud Alrumaihi made a case for royal blue in a similar shirt dress, but with zip-up detailing. The Saudi marketing specialist styled the piece with black leggings, lace-up boots, and a Lady Dior clutch. Indulging in color-blocking was Dima Al Sheikhly, who wore a sleeveless black dress from the fashion house, featuring bright orange and green stripes on its hem, and paired it with a blue purse.
Elsewhere during the week, Diala Makki opted for head-to-toe forest green for the Balmain show. The TV host wore a tweed shirt left unbuttoned at the waist to reveal the Balmain logo belt looped around her loose-fitted trousers, which were tucked into her strappy heels. Honorable mention goes to to Rawdah Mohamed, who turned heads in an ensemble featuring a bold color pairing. Created by Paris-based designer Gregory Assaad, the white and yellow patterned shirt worn by the Somali-Norwegian model featured voluminous sleeves, which she offset with straight-legged leather pants in red. Ola Farahat and Reem Alswaidi also found fans in the color yellow. While the former matched her yellow pants to her purse, the latter wore a monochrome suit, pairing it with purple heels and a white coat. Those who prefer neutral shades, however, might find themselves gravitating towards Haifa Wehbe’s look. The Lebanese star championed faux fur in a long brown and beige hooded coat, which she paired with black tights and metallic silver boots.
