In our eyes supermodel Kendall Jenner can’t step a foot out of style. As the face of Estée Lauder, Fendi and La Perla (to name just a few), the trend-making runway queen has certainly picked up a trick or two for her personal wardrobe.

One of the youngest members of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, the 21-year-old beauty recently displayed her fashion credentials while aboard a luxury boat in Cannes, France. The epitome of nautical chic, Kendall opted for high-waisted white trousers teamed with a Breton striped top, black sunnies, and cat-eye shades.

Most recently, the actress/supermodel can be seen in Sci-Fi blockbuster Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets - now showing at Vox Cinemas.

Hair How-To: New Season Locks

The Spring trends to try at home and our insider tricks of the trade you need to know now

The Beehive

Over at the Anna Sui Spring/Summer 2017 show in New York City, the models took to the runway rocking retro beehive bouffants.

The trick to achieving this look at home is all down to backcombing and a holding spray.

  • Voluminous beehives work best on day-hold locks as the hair has more texture to it than silky strands, so you can forgo the fresh blow-dry.

  • Concentrating on your crown, section hair backwards before taking a comb and brushing upwards towards your scalp - the aim is to create a matted look, which you can then gently smooth over the top with a comb.

  • Pull back two front sections with bobby pins and spritz generously with hairspray.

Pro tip: For maximum volume, go easy on the conditioner. Just apply a small amount to the ends before rinsing and avoid the crown altogether.

The essential tool: Boots Essentials Extra Firm Hold Hairspray, Boots Pharmacy, City Centre Bahrain

Straight On

For Spring/Summer 2017, Victoria Beckham sent her girls down the runway with super sleek straight locks. To top off the modern look, hair was parted neatly down the middle and smoothed with a high gloss serum.

  • Get this polished look by blow-drying hair with a large paddle brush followed by a runover with flat irons.

  • Use a fine-tooth comb to divide your parting into the centre and finish with a drop of moisture-rich serum or balm.

Pro tip: To tame flyaways, spritz a little hair spray onto a clean toothbrush and softy brush down.

How To Dress Like…Sienna Miller

A young Sienna Miller first came onto the scene in 2004 with roles in two hit British films, Layer Cake and Alfie starring opposite Jude Law – who she would later go on to to become romantically involved with.

The beautiful young couple made waves in the press, largely due to Sienna’s innate sense of style. She is often credited with resurrecting the boho-chic fashion trend movement throughout the 2000s - think floppy hats, prairie skirts and crochet gilets with low-slung leather belts and pirate boots.

In the years that followed, Sienna was featured on the covers of glossy magazines across the world, including both British and American Vogue, in addition to fronting campaigns for Hugo Boss and Burberry.

While the blonde actress’s relationship with Jude ended in 2006 (although the pair later rekindled their romance in 2009 only to break up again in 2011), her professional career took off with roles in Factory Girl, Interview and The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, followed by The Edge of Love opposite Keira Knightley.

In recent years, Sienna has been seen in a slew of critically acclaimed box office hits including Foxcatcher and Clint Eastwood's American Sniper, as well as Burnt, alongside Bradley Cooper, and The Lost City of Z. Her next film will see her star opposite Ben Affleck and Zoe Saldana in the hotly anticipated crime drama Live By Night, set for release in January 2017.

Nowadays the 34-year-old mother-of-one (Sienna gave birth to her daughter Marlowe with ex-fiancé actor Tom Sturridge in 2012) takes a more streamlined approach to her wardrobe, as seen just a few weeks ago, when Sienna attended an event for women in film in New York City.

The British beauty looked polished in leather shorts, a white tee and tights topped off with a checked red tweed jacket.

Here, we show you how to get her on-trend look from the Middle East’s leading shopping malls.

How To Dress Like Selena Gomez

  • Closet Confidential  00

    With a colossal 90 million fans eagerly awaiting her daily photo updates, it’s little wonder why Selena Gomez is the most followed person on social media. There’s the six studio albums, more smash hits than we can count on both hands and the very high profile romance with Justin Bieber.

    Selena stepped into the spotlight at the tender age of seven joining the cast of Barney & Friends. The budding actress soon rose to fame after landing the leading role in the Disney channel series Wizards of Waverly Place.

In the subsequent years, the busy 23-year-old has also starred in a slew of films such as Spring Breakers, Monte Carlo and Hotel Transylvania.

But her true success lies in the stream of megahit songs, which include Same Old Love, Good For You, Hands To Myself, Come & Get It and most recently, Kill Em With Kindness – all of which has amassed hundreds of millions of downloads and video views on Youtube.

The American beauty is currently on her worldwide Revival tour with a stop in Dubai on the map at the Autism Rocks Arena on November 18th.

Selena has also made waves in the fashion and beauty industry, covering countless glossy fashion magazines, including Vogue, W and Elle, as well as campaigns for hair powerhouse, Pantene.

Before heading off on her big tour earlier this summer, the superstar was snapped at an event in Los Angeles. Pairing her blue jeans with a rleaxed white tank, Selena topped off the look with a bright yellow coat and camel coloured heels.   

Here, we show you how to get her chic look for less from the Middle East’s leading shopping malls.

How To Dress Like Rihanna

  • Be it on or off the stage, Rihanna is never one to shy away from over-the-top outfits and hard-to-try trends.

    From a curve-hugging transparent sheath decked with thousands of crystals, to a traffic-stopping neon green fur coat teamed with thigh-high vinyl boots, and who could forget about the couture yellow-caped gown complete with a cascading train she wore to last year’s prestigious Met Gala – it’s official, nobody nails show-stopping style quite like Rihanna.

    While the 28-year-old’s standout wardrobe may not be to everyone’s taste (how many woman can pull off a fluffy pink mink minidress with matching bobby socks?), we have to hand it to RiRi, she is definitely a fearless fashionista.

    Famous for her smash hit beats Diamonds, Umbrella, We Found Love and Stay (to name just a few), a few weeks ago the Barbadian singer and songwriter released a powerful ballad titled Sledgehammer for the Star Trek Beyond soundtrack.

    Showing off her fashion IT girl status, Rihanna recently stepped out for a meeting in Soho, New York, looking sleek and sophisticated. Wearing a classic little black dress topped off with a tailored coat, the singer/songwriter jazzed up her ensemble with quirky white heels and gold space-age inspired shades.

    Here, we show you how to get her edgy look from the Middle East’s leading shopping malls.

Sweet Dreams Interior buys for the bedroom

  • Sweet Dreams Home  01

    We believe your bedroom should be a personal sanctuary. A place to switch off from the rest of the world and drift off into a comfortable snooze.

    While we’re all for colourful ornaments, bright art and a mishmash of printed pillows, when it comes to your bedroom, it’s usually best to keep the decor simple and clean. The fewer items in the room to distract you while you try to sleep, the better.

    The same applies to wall and colour palettes – opt for muted shades of grey, beige and white, which have been proven to help improve sleep patterns.

    The shopping malls in the Middle East are bursting with décor finds to fill your bedroom, from luxurious interior stores such as The One, Villeroy & Boch and Harvey Nichols Dubai, to more affordable buys found in Zara Home, Crate & Barrel Dubai and Home Centre.

    Scroll down to discover a few of our favourite small luxuries to turn your bedroom into the ultimate slumber zone now…

  • Sweet Dreams Home 02

    Jacquard rug, Zara Home, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Bahrain and City Centre Muscat

    Décor tip: Throw in cosy touches such as a vase of fresh flowers, your favourite framed photos and soft rugs for either side of your bed.

  • Sweet Dreams Home 03

    Duvet cover set, Crate & Barrel, visit Mall of the Emirates and City Centre Mirdif

    Décor tip: Create your own mini hotel room at home by investing in good quality bedding. While there is no need to spend thousands of dirhams, do look for the highest thread count possible – these are usually the softest sheets and will last for many years to come.

  • Sweet Dreams Home 04

    Antique-style lamp, Zara Home, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Bahrain and City Centre Muscat

    Décor tip:
    Lighting is key to creating a relaxing ambiance. Look for warm, yellow-toned lamps and scented candles to set the vibe.
