Anicée


Anicée studied a lot of serious sh** to end up spending her life at some of the most frivolous events around the world, from red carpets to festivals. TV producer/director, reporter and occasional writer, Anicee wants to remain a child forever and gets excited about baby goats, Nutella, good movies, the beach, and weirdos. Half Egyptian half French, living in Soho London, on the road most of the year, she would be best described as a nomad with serious commitment issues. @aniceegohar
