12th Lux Style Awards: Red Carpet Round Up

You guys read¬†my Lux Style Awards best dressed list. Here’s a round up of rest of the LSA attendees.

Amna Kardar r (FILEminimizer)

Amna Kardar in Shehla Chatoor: How to ruin a perfect Red carpet look? Amna Kardar has quite an experience in that territory.

Ayesha Omar r (FILEminimizer)

Ayesha Omar in Shehla Chatoor: Shehla was definitely a red carper favourite on that night. One of my favourite looks from her recent collection and Ayesha manages to pull it off.

Ayyan 2 (FILEminimizer)

Ayyan r (FILEminimizer)

Ayaan Ali in Deepak Perwani: Glamorous, sexy and show stopping if only she hadn’t ruined all her face with all that botox. Makes me sad to realize how such a beautiful face has been tarnished by misuse of cosmetic surgery.

Fariha Pervaiz 2 (FILEminimizer)

Fareeha Pervaiz in Elan by Khadijah Shah: Sassy pants, great look but not meant for an award show.

Faris Shafi (FILEminimizer)

Faris Shafi in his own swagger: Style rules be damned, I love his look. Put a 100 volt smile on my face.

Frieha Altaf (FILEminimizer)

Frieha Altaf in Shehla Chatoor: Frieha has an affinity for sensual, body baring ensembles. This looks great but for a change I wouldn’t mind seeing her alter her style a bit and dress differently for a change.

hamza Tarrar (FILEminimizer)

Hamza Tarrar in Ammar Belal: Smart choice, specially love the bejeweled bow-tie. Made a good call by removing the extra pocket.

Huma Amir Shah (FILEminimizer)

Huma Amir Shah in Shehla Chatoor: PTV World anchor person was quite a revelation to me at the LSAs. Looked smoking hot.

Mahirah Khan w (FILEminimizer)

Mahirah Khan in Elan by Khadijah Shah: As I said before, best dressed of the night. Enough said!

Mahira Khan (FILEminimizer)

Meesha Shafi (FILEminimizer)

Meesha Shafi in Elan by Khadijah Shah: This girl never gets it wrong. Wish I had a picture of the back of that dress which was intricately beautiful.

Rabia Butt (FILEminimizer)

Rabia Butt in Feeha Jamshed: Only Rabia Butt could pull that off. It’s such a difficult dress and only a model could fit into that. She looked jaw dropping gorgeous but I wish it was in a different hue, a brighter colour perhaps.

Saba Hameed (FILEminimizer)

Saba Hamid in Elan by Khadijah Shah: Now we know where Meesha Shafi gets her supreme sense of style. Age appropriate and well styled.

Zara Peerzada (FILEminimizer)

Zara Peerzada in Kamiar Rokni: I have no words to describe how much I am in owe of this girl. She has been called Alexa Chung, Cara Delevingne (and what not) of Pakistan. But I think she has a league of her own. Hope she goes to great heights, find her extremely underrated.

 

The Absolute Disasters:

Shahbaz Aslam (FILEminimizer)

Shahbaz Aslam (Atif Aslam’s costume designer brother): Don’t have much to say, only sharing this pic for some comic relief.

Noor (FILEminimizer)

Noor:¬†Throughout the course of ¬†LSAs and extensive publicity campaign, organizers described Noor as ‘Top actress of Lollywood’, ‘Best Dancer’ and what not but they left ‘hideous sense of style’ out of the list which is more true than any of the above mentioned attributes.

Sana (FILEminimizer)

Sana in Shehla Chatoor: Too tight, not a dress made for her body. Ship it off to Rabia Butt and find something a little loose. And hire a makeup artist please.

Lux Style Awards 2013: Style Supplement’s Best Dressed List

Left for a five day trip to north on the next day of Lux Style Awards where there was no cell coverage let alone Internet access so couldn’t cover LSAs on the blog. But I believe in a policy of ‘late better than never’ so here’s my two cents on 12th Lux Style Awards Red Carpet.
LSAs were held in Lahore this year so as expected, red carpet was full of glitz and glamour. Shehla Chatoor dominated the red carpet as most of the stars were spotted wearing her pieces. √Član, Sania Maskatiya and Deepal Perwani were some of the other designers spotted.
As for the celebrities, Mahira Khan was clearly best dressed of the night in a dress from √Član by Khadijah Shah’s latest collection. I was rooting for that dress to make it the red carpet and there was no one better than Mahira to pull it off.

Best Dressed:

Amina Sheikh and Ali Xeeshan were declared best dressed male and female on the red carpet by the jury.

If it were me, I wouldn’t have chosen her as best dressed but she does look great and I can get behind the idea but it is the best dressed male award that I cant wrap my head around.

Ali Xeeshan

He looks like a pirate who borrowed a suit from his cousin in Toba Tek Singh to attend LSAs. The fit is bad, shirt seems ruffled and pants need hemming. No idea who was on the jury that selected him as best dressed but I am pretty sure they have no idea how the fuck menswear works. (sorry for using profanity but I am quite flabbergasted)

StyleSupplement’s Best Dressed:

As for my personal favourites, let’s start with the men. I think there were tons of men who looked far better (and saner) than Ali Xeeshan but if I had to pick one I would choose model Waleed Khalid as the best dressed male on the red carpet.

Waleed Khalid r (FILEminimizer)

I am not sure whom he’s wearing but it looks like HSY. Camel colour, narrow tie and that white peeking pocket square wins it for me. This look is so GQ appropriate which I consider a style bible.

Nubain Ali, Hamza Tarrar and Shehzad Noor (who won Best Fashion Model [Male]) would come second on my list. Kamiar Rokni looked good too.

As for the ladies, to me Mahirah Khan was hands down the best dressed female on the red carpet. Not only her Elan by Khadijah Shah dress was gorgeous but she pulled it off perfectly.

Feeha Jamshed in a canary yellow gown and Amna Illyas in black Shehla Chatoor dress would come second.

I really liked Humaima’s choice as well but it was a bit too obvious. Spectacular nonetheless.

10th Lux Style Awards, 2011: Red Carpet

¬† ¬† ¬†So after putting up a dismal and uneventful show for the last two years, LSAs finally returned with all its glitz and glamour. Glamour quotient at this year’s show was not as high as its previous outings but overall the celebs put up a good show¬†strutting down the runway wearing luxurious designer couture worth thousands of rupees. Lets get down to business pronto and have a look at what everyone wore and how well they did on the style front!!

  Starting with host, Mahira Khan

Mahira Khan in Deepak Perwani

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†¬† ¬†She didn’t do a very good job with hosting but she looked absolutely gorgeous in all her looks. Blue was the colour of the night with a lot of girls showing up in flowing blue silk gowns.

She looked equally ravishing in her other looks.

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†A lot of celebrities faltered when it came to makeup and styling but Mahira’s styling looked effortlessly glamorous and complimented her every outfit. Ayaan on the other hand was a demo¬†of bad-styling, her makeup was grasping for attention and orange lips with the curly hair looked overdone.

      A lot of celebrities including best-dressed of the night Amna Ilyas, Frieha Altaf and Aminah Shiekh wore Fahad Hussayn.

      Amna Ilyas was declared best dressed female celebrity of the night. She did look flawless, very LSA appropriate glamorous still her gown seemed a bit too complicated for a red carpet appearence. In my opinion, Amina Sheikh was more deserving of the best dressed award.


¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† It was more of a signature Fahad Hussayn dress than Amna Ilyas’s. The gown had a very Alexander McQueen¬†avant garde aesthetic touch. Understated makeup and silver jewellery were the right choices with the dress.

           Aminah Haq and Ammar Belal are unarguably the most stylish couple of Pakistan. They are red carpet regulars and their presence on red carpet always take things to a whole new level.

Aminah Haq and Ammar Belal, both in Ammar Belal

¬† ¬†Aminah Haq wore a fawn coloured gown while Ammar Belal supported a retro tux from his latest ”Disco Inferno” PFDC Collection. Nude colour doesn’t look very well on people with lighter skin tones but Aminah Haq rocked that look with perfect¬†accessories¬†and makeup. This look could have been a serious contender for best dressed on red carpet had it been not so understated. But Ammar’s 70’s look was definitely one of my most favourite look from the night.

Worst look from the women’s side was Mathira’s

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† Animal print is the worst possible option for a red carpet¬†affair like LSA’s.¬†It is vulgar and tacky but then vulgar and tacky are Mathira’s signature style so we can’t argue on this one.

        From the TV fraternity, two women that really impressed me were Sahira Kazmi and Savera Nadeem, both were wearing Sana Safinaz and looked stunning yet not too flashy.

Sahira Kazmi and Savera Nadeem both in Sana Safinaz

Bushra Ansari in Umar Saeed

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Bushra Ansari has a lesson to learn from Sahira Kazmi. Sahira Kazmi looked glamorous without flashing any skin which would have looked very age inappropriate for someone of her age group. Bushra Ansari’s Umar Saeed ensemble was very beautiful but she needs to realize that her age of wearing sleeveless on red carpet is long gone. Its not an issue of modesty, its an issue of looking at your best and flashing your skin if you don’t have a perfect figure is not the way to go to get that.

     Other notable mentions include Feeha Jamshed and Frieha Altaf:

Frieha Altaf in Fahad Hussayn and Feeha Jamshed

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† I am absolutely in love with Feeha Jamshed’s personal style, she always look uber glamorous and chic. Frieha Altaf was one of the many wearing Fahad Hussayn on that night. Black and Gold always make a very luxe combination and her golden¬†accessories are doing absolutely the same here.

     While most women turned up in standard gowns, some went the unconventional way wearing non contemporary colours and taking big fashion risks. Nabila being the style icon that she is went the high road and her risk surely paid off:

         

¬† ¬† ¬† Most disappointing fare of the night for me was the best dressed male of the night, HSY. Journalist Hani Taha and Xpoze’ editor Andleeb Rana judged the red carpet. Hassan Shehrayar Yasin was declared best dressed male but his attire was a major¬†disappointment. They were so many chic looking men that night, I fail to understand logic behind choosing¬†¬† him as the best dressed of the night.

HSY in HSY

¬† ¬† ¬† He doesn’t look bad, the problem is that he looks boring as hell. This suit is as standard as it could get, there is no wow factor. You can find uncles wearing more fashion forward suits at weddings than this. There were so many draper looking men on red carpet that night like Ayaz Anis Khan, Ammar Belal, Taimoor Damas, BNN Boys.¬†Decision of¬†choosing HSY over of all those is a decision beyond my comprehension.

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†But all in all, it was a decent affair, celebs have matured big time with their style senses, here’s hoping that next year’s event is bigger and better in magnitude.
