THE CHRONICLES OF ZAHIA

FASHION CARLYNE CERF DE DUDZEELE

IN FRANCE, SHE’S KNOWN AS “THE CREATURE,” A BEAUTY WITH CURVES SO OUTRAGEOUS THEY BORDER ON OTHERWORLDLY. BUT ZAHIA DEHAR IS ALSO AN EXAMPLE OF THE BODY AS WEAPON—THE SOURCE OF A VERY PUBLIC SCANDAL INVOLVING 3 OF EUROPE’S BEST SOCCER PLAYERS. HERE, THE CONTROVERSIAL 19-YEAR-OLD BOMBSHELL AND MODERN-DAY MARY MAGDALENE SPEAKS ABOUT HER FEMININE WILES AND HER SECRETS TO SEDUCTION.

THE DELIGHTFUL MS. DEHAR CAME TO US BY WAY OF FASHION EDITOR  CARLYNE CERF DE DUDZEELE, WHO SHARES OUR INFATUATION WITH THE BUXOM BLONDE. “I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FASCINATED WITH SUPER-ZAHIA,” EXPLAINS DE DUDZEELE. “SHE IS TOTALLY UNREAL, AND I JUST KNEW SHE WOULD BE PERFECT FOR A FASHION STORY. MY DREAM CAME TRUE!”

You have assets that most women would die for. You also present yourself in an ultrafeminine way. Do you believe it's easy to identify with you?
ZAHIA DEHAR
I like to highlight every detail of my body and believe every woman has the power to do the same, depending upon what she likes. It's not a matter or money, ans even less a matter of perfection. It's all about will. Whether you are tall or small, thin or heavy, beautiful or ordinary, femininity is part of every woman. I believe it's the ultimate weapon when yu know how to use it. 

What do you think is your own most powerful asset?
ZD You tell me.

What do you think is a man’s most powerful asset?
ZD I like men to be protective. I especially love a man who can stand by me in any situation.

Your body is completely surreal. What are your tricks for staying in shape?
ZD Thank you for the compliment. I’m lucky to be naturally thin. I don’t pay any particular attention to what I eat, but I do play some sports and I love to dance.

You gained international notoriety at a very early age. Do you feel you’ve grown up too fast?
ZD It’s true that I’m only 19 but, you know, a lot of people have become famous a lot younger than me.

Do you have any regrets?
ZD Who doesn’t?

Where do you get your rebellious nature?
ZD Since when is being feminine rebellious?

You remain highly visible in the press and maintain a unique personal style. Who are your favorite designers?
ZD I love to accentuate my curves. Dolce & Gabbana fits me well and shows off a woman’s body in a way I like. I also wear Chanel and Roberto Cavalli. For shoes, no one is better at showing off women’s feet in an erotic way than Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik! But I can’t always fit the shoes I want as my feet are the size of a geisha’s! [Laughs]

What is your greatest guilty pleasure?
ZD That’s a secret.

What do you like to wear to bed?
ZD Sexy lingerie only!

What is your secret to seduction?
ZD For me, a woman should not approach a man. She should give him the opportunity to court her. Being beautiful, gentle, and pleasant to be with is just about all a woman needs to seduce.

The French press talks a lot about your upcoming projects. There are rumors about lingerie, perfume, clothing lines. Can you share anything about your future plans?
ZD The French press says a lot of things about me. [Laughs] It’s still a bit too early for me to talk about my plans. Let’s just say that what I’ve been imagining for years is coming to life.

What do you hope to achieve?
ZD I have often dreamed of outfits, accessories, and other ornamental items that serve as a tribute to femininity. Today these dreams are becoming a reality that I can wear and share with women who, like me, want to celebrate their femininity.
