This Director Wears Gucci to the Opera and Balenciaga to the Studio

Swarovski crystal-encrusted Gucci gloves to be exact.

Welcome to Style Diaries, a new series where we research the physical manifestations of our closet tours IRL. We're asking friends and tastemakers to show us what they're *actually* wearing during the week and to provide a little insight into their thoughts on the current state of fashion. This week, we follow film director and photographer Dana Boulos as she runs errands in Paris, edits her director’s reel, and goes to the opera.

What role does fashion play in your life? How does it serve you?

“Fashion has always been a big part of my life. It’s not just about the clothing, but it's more about self-expression.”

What did you do that day?

“I ran my errands for the day before heading to Chez Jean to work on my director’s reel.”

Why did you select the pieces in this ensemble?

“It’s been pretty cold in Paris. Right now, all I was thinking about was how do I stay warm. When I’m in the studio, I love to be comfortable. That is key.”

What did you do that day?

“I went to see the ballet at Opera Garnier.”

How/why did you select/combine the pieces in this ensemble?

“I wanted to wear an outfit that would stand out in a nontraditional way.”

What excited you about this look?

“I’ve never worn a harness before but loved how Alessandro Michele designed this piece. It has a corset feel, which makes the look really come together.”

What energy are you bringing to your ensembles this season? What are you looking forward to wearing?

“I’m honestly looking forward to staying warm this season. I’m spending the holidays in Paris and can’t wait to wear the coats I’ve bought.”

“Being able to layer different prints and fabrics together.”

In terms of beauty, what does your go-to hair and makeup routine look like, and how does that change based on what you’re wearing?

“For my everyday hair look, it’s usually pretty simple. Either naturally down or in braids. But when I’m getting dressed for an event, I usually like a slick-back, tight chignon look. That way the focus is more on my jewelry or bold outfit. When it comes to makeup, I love a natural non-makeup look for every day. When I dress up, I love wearing CHANEL waterproof black eyeliner, and my Gucci Goldie Red lipstick with a tiny bit of blush.”
