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.
