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.
