NAME: Narsis, 26
HOME: Currently Dubai, but originally from Iran
IF YOU WEREN'T A MODEL, YOU'D... be an architect.
FAVORITE MUSIC: R&B and soft rock
HOW DOES A MIDDLE EASTERN WOMAN NEGOTIATE GLOBAL STYLE TRENDS? In Iran, we have the hijab (the veil), but we also want to dress fashionably-so ours is the art of mixing tradition and change, which I think we do rather nicely! Can I just say that the world's most beautiful women can be found in Iran?

NAME: Samar Breitem, 26 (middle)
HOMETOWN: Dubai (although I am half-Palestinian, half-Armenian).
DOES YOUR FAMILY SUPPORT YOUR CAREER? My family is very supportive and proud of my modeling, although my mother is not too happy about the swimsuit shots!
ANY INTEREST IN AMERICAN FASHION HERE? Definitely. Even the young women who are veiled wear jeans-from Levi's to Rock & Republic.
HAVE YOU TREATED YOURSELF TODAY? Why yes, with a pair of peep-toe patent-leather and velvet shoes by Marc Jacobs.
