Rosemin Manji: Beautiful inside and out

Fashion Director of leading luxury fashion consultancy RR&Co. Bespoke Luxury Management, Style Presenter on Dubai One TV's weekly lifestyle show Studio One, Contributing Fashion Editor to Signature Middle East magazine, and muse of Christian Louboutin {heck, he has a shoe named after her!}, constantly featured on Best Dressed and Most Influential People lists, and advocate for Breast Cancer Awareness, Rosemin Manji is the woman who's done it all, while making it look effortless. 

I've been following this Style Goddess Extraordinaire even before I started this blog, stalking her in Hello! and other magazines. In every picture I saw she was always well turned-out, looked insanely beautiful, and had {has} the kindest eyes. So when I got a chance to meet her at the Saks Fifth Avenue Amanda Navai event, I was thrilled. True to form, she was super-sweet. And looked like a million dinars. {I swear this woman doesn't age!}

Rosemin and me at the Amanda Navai event in Saks.
She graciously agreed to an interview for my little blog. So, here she is!

   You were picked to work with Tom Ford straight after graduating. What was your designation and role?
It was an amazing time to work with him as he was VP of Gucci Group and Creative Director of Yves Saint Laurent and Gucci. My role was his assistant in his personal office. At 22 I was exposed to everything from brand management, watching him design, style, people management etc. I swear I learned more from him then I did in university!

What are some of the key beliefs that guide you through life?
My mom always taught me “put yourself in other peoples shoes”. My personal beliefs are work hard, have integrity, and be loyal.

You have an amazing career and are very successful. Yet you’re one of the sweetest, most grounded, famous people I know. How do you stay that way?
You are so sweet! It was such a pleasure to meet you in beautiful Bahrain at the Saks event.
I just want to stay true to myself.  I am blessed to have an amazing family who are my support system.

 What are your top style tips?
  • Dress for your body shape.
  • Dress for your personal lifestyle. 
  • Invest in good under garments (i.e: bras that fit, seamless). This changes your posture and the             way clothes fall on your body.
  • Invest in key basics. My recommend list: dark blue jeans (find a cut that works for your shape), white blouse or button down shirt, good classic heels (I love Manolo Blahnik BB Pumps or Christian Louboutin Decollette), blazer to layer, and ballet flats (my favourite are Chanel quilted flats).

What are some of the qualities that helped you grow in your career?
Work hard-  I am not a 9 – 5 girl at all. Most of the clients we consult for are in Europe or America so I am often on conference calls at 9 or 10 pm at night. 
I am very loyal to my friends and business partners. I like that most of my clients I have worked with, have been with me for several years. Most designers I have worked with I have known for over 15 years. We have all grown together.

How do you juggle your career, family life, and me-time?
In my downtime I love watching TV. My favourite shows are The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Modern Family and my crush McDreamy in Grey's Anatomy.
I do my best to take Saturdays off to spend time with family, relax and go to the spa.
I often go for walks in the evening because I hate exercising! I try and go in the evenings so with the time difference I can speak to my family in North America. I can easily chat with my brother and sister for an hour so I am sure burn double the calories by walking and talking!! Haha.

 You are renowned for personal style. What advice would you give anyone looking to create their own?
Thank you so much for the kind compliment! Just be comfortable! 

So there you have it. Rosemin Manji. Living proof that you can achieve your dreams, look fantastic while doing so, and be down-to-earth!

Until next time, xoxo.
