Roz, a model and activist, has dominated fashion in the ten years that she has resided in the country by working with brands like Swarovski, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, and Guess, among many others. But her greatest accomplishment was the one that began the whole thing. In her early career, she broke down barriers by becoming the first Saudi Arabian model to appear in front of the camera without wearing the conventional headscarf and abaya.
In addition to her track record as a fashion trendsetter, Roz has more than 14 million social media followers and, more recently, she unveiled her very own line of clean and sustainable beauty palettes. Roz took the time to speak with Modern Luxury after another prosperous year to discuss remaining devoted to her audience, her approach to fashion, and her happiest professional accomplishment.
Despite being introduced in the summer, the palettes have neutral hues, and a variety of colours can be used throughout the winter, particularly during all the holiday events.
