In this month’s edition of Tala and the Tastemakers, contributing editor Tala Samman taps Tunisian supermodel Hanaa Ben Abdesslem.
Hanaa Ben Abdesslem made shock waves in the Arab world when she was announced as the face of Lancôme – one of the first times a woman of Arab descent has performed such a role for a large-scale beauty company. Since then, Ben Abdesslem has become a role model and inspiration for women in the Middle East and beyond. Right now, you can find her walking the runway at international Fashion Weeks and enjoying a fast-paced life of travel, fashion, and fun. Though she has access to and appreciation for the industry’s top designers, Ben Abdesslem’s personal shopping preferences might surprise, and so will her personal style. This down-to-earth beauty prefers finding unique pieces in far-flung locales and wearing jeans and T-shirts to the fashion world’s more flashy fare. Find out more about her beauty regimen, approach to healthy living, and her favorite designers in this edition of Tala and the Tastemakers.
