From L to R: Camila Cabello in Ulyana Sergeenko, Camila Coelho in Valentino, Nour Arida in LVR x Sergio Rossi, Soraya Bakhtiar in Ronny Kobo, Dana Hourani in Balenciaga and Gucci, Lana El Sahely in Louis Vuitton, and Parvané Barret in Louis Vuitton

This modest yet colourful Ronny Kobo dress worn by style influencer Soraya Bakhtiar makes me so happy! It semaphores cheerfulness, celebration and fun, totally apt for this time of year. Loving the oversized Gucci purse as a statement accessory. It’s clearly the season for red boots as Lebanese style star Nour Arida proves in this Sergio Rossi pair, teamed with my current obsession – a hoodie. Giving festive footwear a totally different spin, singer Camila Cabello summons up a fresh take on autumn, combining a dramatic shirtdress with jeans and a tee.

Also bridging the seasons, influencer Dana Hourani works her signature minimal yet eye-catching style. Iconic is what I think whenever I see Dana. Throwing in something bold like that bag is typical of her personality. Never a fail. Fellow influencer Lana El Sahely always impresses me with taking the right looks to the right event. The dress is sparkly and festive, yet she selects her shoes and purse to not outdo the statement piece. Finally, influencers Parvané Barret and Camila Coelho wear red in two very different ways. Parvané’s style is so now and age appropriate, while Camila’s Valentino dress marries a loud yet minimal simplicity.
