Make-up artist and director at Ganache Café, Maleeha Salman decodes her style. Like most Lahoris, she loves to indulge in food but keeps herself in shape with regular yoga practice. She tells us about her style transformation and how she dresses according to her body type
Understanding your body is the key to looking good and a trait found amongst all impeccably dressed fashionistas. While people shy away from talking about their bodies, these brave souls explain how they work their anatomies to their advantage
How do you describe your body type?
Lean and toned.
Has your body type changed over the last five years?
It hasn’t changed much but as the natural cycle goes, my metabolism has slowed down. To counter it I resort to yoga.
How has your style changed over the years?
I feel your style is defined by where you live but with time, trends have evolved so fast that no one can adopt a permanent style. My style is continuously changing and I’m experimental with my dressing.
In your opinion what is your most troublesome area?
My belly and arms.
How do you dress your body according to your body type?
You will mostly see me in a pair of jeans and a t-shirt but it all depends on my mood.
In your opinion what is the biggest mistake a person can make while dressing here?
By going over the top with their dressing in an effort to impress others and not being comfortable in their own skin.
What silhouettes suit your body the most?
Ok, I’m not being arrogant but most styles suit me. I love wearing jumpsuits and flowy trousers with a nice top and a good pair of heels. I believe if you’re fit you will look good in anything.
What is the one piece of clothing that you shy away from wearing and why?
These days figure hugging dresses especially around the waist, as I have a bulging belly.
