Conceptual food designer @lailacooks’s personal life is just as inventive as her job: Born in Cairo but based in New York, 29-year-old Laila recently married her magazine-editor husband, Omar, in a bull ring in Spain – and forewent a traditional white gown in favor of a full Spanish funeral mantilla. “We are free to write our own rules,” says Laila of today’s women. “I always felt like I didn’t fit into a traditional mold. As a child I was frustrated by this, but now I’m really thankful for it – it forced me to pave my own path. To think differently. I’d like to be remembered as someone who did things on my own terms.” (link in profile to learn more about Laila and #PortraitofaWoman)
