So….who’s prettier?

He is appearing alongside my love Sonam Kapoor in some Disney shit that I don’t really care about. But look how pretty they both are!

I’m getting to Sonam’s outfit now, so if you were just interested in drooling over FK you can stop reading here.

sonam kapoor khoobsurat trailer Sonam Kapoor & Fawad Khan: Khoobsurat Trailer LaunchI am loooving this dress. You all might know that I am absolutely obsessed with this whole Raf Simons for Dior-esque silhouette that has been popping up everywhere. It is the perfect balance of old-world eminine and modern. Sonam’s dress is by Aussie designer Toni Maticevski. The graphic black and white print is great with this shape. Sonam adds some trademark spunk with pointed pink shoes and mismatched earrings to this look. J’adore.

Ok I lied about no more pictures of Fawad – thought I would cover his look too.

Even if he isn’t,  kudos to him for picking out a jodhpur suit to wear instead of some jeans. I personally dislike (hate) jodhpurs but from the waist up Fawad looks absolutely magnificent.

Retail Therapy: Eid Picks from Labels

Eid is almost upon us and that means NEW OUTFITS. While I used to indulge in new outfits all throughout Ramadan while living in Lahore, it just hasn’t been the same since moving away but I am super excited for Eid and an excuse to dress up.

I thought I would go through the offerings on the swanky redesigned Labels E-store and see what they have available for the season. The best thing about Labels, aside from the quick shipping and easy navigation, is the variety of designers on-site which means there is something for every taste and every budget.

I decided to keep my Eid picks budget friendly. The three pieces I chose are formal enough for a summer Eid while still being comfortable and are all under Rs 15k ( AED 559, USD 152).

Fahad Hussayn is a versatile and interesting designer who is always serving it up – no surprise that 2 of my 3 picks are designed by him. The pink draped Asteria top on the left is perfecto for the glamazon who wants to be dressed to the nines for Eid – you can buy this shirt here.  Pastels are a go-to for hot hot summer so this mint green tunic will be a fail-safe option, you can get this shirt here. Silk by Fawad Khan continues to be a strong contender in Pakistan’s pret world, this beautifully embroidered ivory top is sophisticated and elegant and just a must have, buy it here.

You can currently get a 10% discount on any purchase at the Labels E-store in celebration of their redesign.

Stay tuned as I bring you more Eidspirations from my fave Pakistani designers

Bisous!

Cover Girl: Rihanna for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia

Rihanna is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful women in the world so it was super exciting to see her on the cover of my fave local glossy, Harper’s Bazaar Arabia this month. The editorial came at an interesting time with Riri having just made a controversial appearance at the CFDA Awards wearing a very sheer dress.

The story, entitled “The New Modesty”, sees the singer wearing a variety of covered up outfits from the likes of Versace and Chanel. The images were shot by Ruven Afandror and have been making waves across the world. My fave shot is the close – up shop with the Versace headwrap, and I love how her hand tattoo fits in perfectly with the theme.

Thoughts?
