My G star jeans because they work for all occasions.


HOw wOuld yOu deSCrIbe yOur STyle?

I probably dress a little younger than I should while still dressing quite safe. I love comfortable clothes.

Its very cliche but it has to be David Beckham. He dresses in formal wear when he needs to but can pull off casual looks too. His wardrobe is definitely one Id like to mimic, if I had his money and his body!
wHO IS yOur FAvOurITe FASHIOn deSIgner?

If I want to treat myself I go to The Gate Mall which has a good range of brands like Diesel. However, on a weekly basis I usually shop at Splash in City Center they have an amazing selection and are reasonable too.

Im not really into high-end brands. I love more casual labels like Diesel, Energie, SuperDry and G Star. Firstly, theyre more affordable and secondly, they suit me more. I spent a lot of money on a pair of Armani jeans before because I wanted to dress smarter; sadly they sit at the bottom of the wardrobe because they dont fit my style!

All my wardrobe items are special to me as Im always shopping for unique pieces to fit my personality. To be precise I would have to say shoes, and they are carefully chosen depending on the occasion.
HOw wOuld yOu deSCrIbe yOur STyle?

I like shopping in many places. For high-end brands, I would say Dolce & Gabbana, Armani, and Gucci. Zara and Massimo Dutti for casual wear and Body Action for sports wear.
wHAT mAle CelebrITy dO yOu THInk AlwAyS dreSSeS well?

Smart casual; I like simple clothes, that when mixed together end up as a unique style. I strongly believe that the person is the one adding value to the clothes hes wearing, rather than the clothes giving style to the person.

I would vote for Eric Bana. Hes always well dressed and is one of my favourite actors.
wHO IS yOur FAvOurITe FASHIOn deSIgner?

Marc Jacobs I feel his style is a nice combination of simple and classic.

Ryan Reynolds, Brad Pitt, and George Clooney always dress well.
wHO IS yOur FAvOurITe FASHIOn deSIgner?

My style is more Goth/Vampire with a twist. Same style but I choose to wear colours rather than just plain black. I love the vampire style in movies such as Underworld, Blade and Twilight. I love how they carry their clothing; I just inject colour into it.
wHere Are yOur FAvOurITe plACeS TO SHOp?

I dont have anyone particular in mind. When I choose my style of clothing, I dont really go for the designer. I normally check if it fits, and compliments my body and age. Then I consider something that will make me different, which gives me the sense of being stylish and unique.

There are limited places in Doha. However, I normally get my stuff from Zara, Massimo Dutti, Armani, Hugo Boss, Guess, Levis, Salsa, River Island and H & M.

My black Prada boots. I have worn them all over the world, in every terrain and climate and they just keep breaking in better. This was the first item that really taught me the importance of high quality material. Pradas leatherwork is incredible. These boots can be dressed up or down, I sometimes leave my laces untied to give a more casual look.
HOw wOuld yOu deSCrIbe yOur STyle?

every item that I buy. I usually only buy one piece of clothing at a time and I dont like having items that someone else can go out and purchase the next day.

Genius.
wHere Are yOur FAvOurITe plACeS TO SHOp?

Robert Downey Jr has a devil may care attitude because hes bold with his fashion choices. He masterfully gives the impression that he makes little effort in putting himself together. But if you notice certain details about his style, you see how hes thought through every piece he has thrown on.
wHO IS yOur FAvOurITe FASHIOn deSIgner?

I love boutiques and shops that arent mainstream. I shop for original pieces of clothing. I have a story or connection with

Alexander McQueen.

My favourite items are my old Diesel jeans, a Virgin white t-shirt and white pair of Converse.
HOw wOuld yOu deSCrIbe yOur STyle?

I like shopping in Diesel, CK, Puma and DKNY; these brands are not too expensive and have pieces reflecting good taste and creativity.
wHO IS yOur FAvOurITe FASHIOn deSIgner?

My style is quite relaxed, metrosexual, gangster, eccentric and very Mediterranean. I like simple and colourful easy things.
wHAT mAle CelebrITy dO yOu THInk AlwAyS dreSSeS well?

Hugo Boss, because Im big fan of simple and classy things, and I think the brand provides a great selection of colour perfect for semi casual clothing.

Regarding the male celebrities who dressed well; I have theory if someone looks good and has a good body then everything suits him. If I have to pick one though it is Spanish football player Fernando Torres.
