Styled By: Sama and Haya Khadra Throw It Back to the ’90s

“It’s a bit of Michelle Tanner meets Sporty Spice meets ’90s London punk,” said Sama and Haya Khadra. The question was about their personal styles, and in one sentence, the twin sisters of Palestinian heritage proved why the fashion community at large has long been so enamored with their every move: They are the very definition of cool. The models/creative directors/DJs, who grew up in London and Dubai, care less about what’s in right now and more about expressing their unique sensibilities in a fun and fresh way. It’s no wonder, then, that they’ve been sought-after subjects of fashion week photographers since the mere age of 14!

So what happened when we passed over the reins and gave the girls complete creative freedom of their own shoot? Picture racks filled with one statement-making piece after another, Rihanna’s new album on repeat, and a playful nod to one of our favorite decades! This is our February Styled By exclusive.
