Tara Emad is Miss Teen Egypt 2010, 1st runner up Miss Global Teen 2010, & Teen Queen of Africa 2010. She's currently a very successful model/actress. She was lately seen in the TV show 'Zay El Ward', where she played her part with hardly any make up, a first for Arabs... She has a face of an angel & a body of a super model!

I had the pleasure of getting an EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW with the fabulous Miss Tara Emad...

F:You're a fabulous model, your editorials are all wonderful, why don't you pursue modeling internationally?
T:That's very nice of you and thanks a lot!
I had an offer, when I was 15 years old, to make an international contract; but I had to forget about school then. So I had to choose my priority which, of course, was education. As a model, I've attended fashion shows and photo shoots in Tunisia, Brazil, Greece, and Germany; also I participated in Berlin's fashion week.

F:Which is easier, being a beauty queen, a model, or an actress?
T:Honestly none are easy, each has a responsibility and obligation that comes along with hard training and some sacrifices. But I love it all, and therefore, I see the bright side of it.

F:I loved your 'Shanghai Nights' editorial in Harper's Bazaar Arabia by Andrew Hobbs, How was it working with such an international talent?
T:It was amazing indeed working with Andrew! I myself loved the photo shoot and the outcome, as it's very different from what I have done before.

F:Describe your personal style?
T:I would say I am a laid back and simple type of person. I'd wear jeans, a shirt, ballerinas, some simple accessories, and I am ready to go! I tried many different styles and colors, yet I always find myself feeling comfortable in simple and earthy colors.

F:What do you want to accomplish 5 years from now?
T:Finish my university with a biotechnology degree, and become internationally known as an Egyptian model.

F:What's your modeling dream job?
T:To be the face of a worldwide known brand.

F:How do you maintain your figure?
T:I watch my diet, don't eat fast-food, and I train on a daily basis.

F:What's one beauty secret your mother taught you?
T:To freshen my face up with ice cubes after a long day of shooting with lots of make up on. It makes my face look fresh again. And at least once a week, I rinse my face with chamomile tea to help remove acne.

F:Your hair is so glossy and healthy, tell us your secret?
T:I recently started to use a home made honey mask which gave me amazing results, and I don't use hairspray on a daily basis, only if it's required for a shoot. I also put lots of conditioner at the tips of my hair after washing it to prevent it from breaking, it also helps comb my hair easily.

F:When your not busy modeling or acting, what are some of you favorite things to do?
T:I like to catch-up with my friends, go out, read a book, and play guitar.

F:How do you deal with all the traveling in your life? How do you cure jet-lags?
T:I love traveling! And I totally dislike jet-lags, but unfortunately there is no cure for that one yet! I just sleep it off, or stay up and sleep later; in order to accommodate myself with the new timing.

F:What are your favorite cities? (list your favorite restaurants and shopping spots in each city)
T:Berlin, Germany
Podgorica, Montenegro
Belgrade, Serbia
Dubai, UAE
And all of these cities have amazing shopping malls and different international restaurants! But of course I love it when I come back and eat our food.

F:Who are you fashion icons? (you can list as many as you want)
T:Naomi Campbell and Gisele Bundchen.

F:List 3 items that are always present in your bag?
T:coconut Vaseline,perfume, and a mirror.
F:Do you follow any fashion blog?
T:United Fashion for Peace, for which I am an ambassador of Egypt http://webzine.unitedfashionforpeace.com
