The Lost Art Of Acting Like A Lady
Nina Zandnia and her secrets on bringing style to the table.
Nina Zandnia, this big name is just as notable as her style and résumé; some people call her their fashion muse and media Icon…others say she is one of the loveliest TV personalities in the Middle East. I would love to say that she is the original belle du jour. With her unique and classy sense of style, effortless chic dressing and her innocent bubbly nature, Nina is a charismatic superwoman. Her inside and outside beauty – a rare combination to find these days – make her a gem.
This Scandinavian star comes from Sweden and is a Masters and an Honors degree holder in journalism and TV broadcasting; no, it doesn’t stop there. This scholarly lady also holds an honors degree in Media Law and Ethics from Australia Bond/Griffith University. With 16 years of experience working for major Networks in the USA, Australia and Sweden (i.e.) Sky News, Channel 7, NBC, Strix Television, Talpa Scandinavia, we think it’s fair to say she is an international sensation.
Nina Zandnia is the C.E.O of Lifestyle – Dubai – The first online lifestyle TV channel in the Middle East. She is also the Director of The Luxury Network – the world’s leading luxury marketing group. Maybe she felt like she still had too much time on her hands or like her current challenges weren’t enough, she added to her long resume: presenter, director and producer as well. Indeed a multi-talented individual!
SidSirus: When and why did you start your career?
Nina: Well, it’s been a long time now, sixteen years indeed. Since the age of 8 I have been a part of the industry. So, it’s like my life now, my work is my passion and my dream… I simply love to live my dreams.
SidSirus: What does fashion mean to you?
Nina: For me fashion is everything. Fashion is the blend of expression, imagination and sense of individuality.
SidSirus: What are the basic guidelines when styling someone?
Nina: Basically, I am not a stylist, but yes, I style myself and I give advice when someone asks me, but if you say the basic guideline then it is your comfort level comes first. Whatever you think is good for you and you are comfortable in, that’s your style.
SidSirus: Are there any basic rules we should all live by if we don’t want to make any serious style mistakes?
Nina: If you don’t know your own self, your very inner beauty, then indeed you can’t style yourself. So you have to explore your inner beauty and style and then execute in terms of clothing and accessories.
SidSirus: What is your favorite part of the creative process?
Nina: Every bit of it. My work is my passion, it’s as simple as that, but it portrays my inner artistic soul. I simply adore all of it.
SidSirus: If you could travel anywhere for inspiration, where would it be, and why?
Nina: For fashion inspiration undoubtedly it’s PARIS!! But for imagination – MALDIVES is the perfect choice for me. Maldives is a soothing and beautiful place – an ultimate experience and tantalizing treasure for your eyes and refreshment for your mind.
SidSirus: If you could pick 3 fashion must-haves that every woman should own, what would they be?
Nina: If it’s the case, MUST HAVES for your handbag… it would be your foundation, lip gloss and mascara. And in general every woman should have one pair of LV shoes, one Chanel bag and of course, your favorite color dress.
SidSirus: What’s a great fashion tip that you can share with our readers?
Nina: Always choose your comfortable style, play with the colors, play with accessories and a pair of nude shoes is my secret style tip to everyone. Trust me it always does the needful.
