Fancy Seeing You Here | Zeenat

Editor, stylist, writer, producer and hej hej's current girl crush, Zeenat Wilkinson, talks about her travels, beauty routine and more...

You’re wearing the Mini Break Dress, don’t you just love it? Tell us why you love it.

I feel like the mini-break dress allows me to share a lot about my personal style in a subtle way. I love structured shapes, bold colours but also love natural textiles. Every time I wear the dress, it espouses that joyful carefree attitude that I want to adopt more of. The bright colour just lifts my day.


You’ve just been on vacay in your hej hej. What was the highlight of your trip?

There were so many little moments. It’s hard to pick one. But probably sharing the most wonderful dinner with my gfs at Masia Can Sabata, in Llorett de Mar, in Spain was a real highlight. The paella is to die for.

What is the worst thing you’ve ever worn? And don’t even try to justify it.

Haha! Love this question. There are so many bad choices made over the years, and hopefully, I have learned my lesson from some of them. I designed a backless jumpsuit (got it stitched from a local tailor) in a tacky glittery navy fabric when I was 16 and wore it to my school Christmas party. I just felt awkward and uncomfortable the whole night. It was too much and waaaay out of my comfort zone.


What would you tell your thirteen-year-old self?

I would tell my 13-year-old self to read more. Get off AOL messenger and enjoy what’s around you. Keep your self-esteem high and trust who you are and what you are capable of creating.


What is your #1 beauty tip for spring?

I am all for trying new beauty trends and having fun with makeup but for spring I am trying to create more of a dewy, just-popped-out-of-a-azalea look. It might still be dry and a cold on some days, so my number #1 tip would be to continue using your winter moisturizers for nighttime. Hydrated well-rested skin is chic.
