Best Dressed: PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week Days 1 & 2

bestdressedpfbw Best Dressed: PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week Days 1 & 2

 

These ladies caught my eye on the black carpet on the first and second days of the PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week which wrapped up last week.

I love the mix of ethnic, modern and fusion clothes we are beginning to see at these events. While I usually cringe when I see red-carpet hosts wearing bridal/formal outfits on the black carpet, Anoushey Ashraf carries off her jewel-encrusted Sana Safinaz outfit with a flair that doesn’t make her look overly made up. Juggan Kazim, who looks banging after some weight loss, rocks a heavily embroidered ensemble, which is bold and colourful. My most favourite Eastern look from the black carpet is Nina’s asymmetrical shirt with embossed pants.

The other girls are rock stars – making simple lines, bold colours and eye-catching prints work for them.

Best Dressed: PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bride Week Day 3

I apologise in advance for how random and out-of-order the posts from PFDC Bridal Week will be. I have just gone though the images and obviously am going through them backwards, because, why wouldn’t I?

So here are the ladies who’s ensembles caught my eye on the last day of the event. Being the last day, most of the attendees are all fashioned out so anyone who manages to make an effort gets an A in my books. If you look j’amazing, you get an A+ … like these ladies.

pfdc bridal week 2014 day 3 best dressed Best Dressed: PFDC LOreal Paris Bride Week Day 3 Ayesha Noon and Natasha Saleem wear outfits from last season’s Elan collection – one of my favourites ever from any fashion week. The black crop tops are offset by full ball skirts with vintage art prints on them. SO fab. You might remember seeing a version of Ayesha’s look on Humaima earlier this year.

Mahnum Kabir of Libas International is quickly becoming my red carpet fave. She killed it at the last fashion week held in Lahore and she killed it once again this time, especially in this gorgeous embellished jacket by none other than Sania Maskatiya.

Fashion journalist Momina Sibtain is sleek and sexy wearing printed silk dress from Sana Safinaz. She looks urban cool without trying too hard. You can always count on Nida Azwer for being understated and sophisticated. She was a breath of fresh air in her simple black suit elevated by luxurious accessories like her exotic Chanel and Louboutins.

Interior designer and founder of Home Couture Attiya Rashid looks amazing in her monochrome dress that is fitted perfectly. Karachi-based journalist Zinnia Bukhari (one of the most beautiful ladies I have ever met!) wears another of my favourite looks from PSFW. I love anything with a zebra on it and this Nida Azwer anarkali is no exception.

Last but not least blogger Sadaf Zarrar does classic black with a twist. Her sari draped top is cool and funky. A bright red lip and metallic accessories are perfect additions.

Trend Report: Orange is the New Black

One colour that I have never been able to come to terms with is orange – I’ve never been attracted to the colour and it looks absolutely horrendous on me – BUT the Spring RTW shows are slowly changing my mind.

All major runways featured an average of 2-3 orange looks, differing hues from a tinge of cantaloupe at Oscar de la Renta to deep, intense tangerine at Ralph Lauren.

Bride of the Year: Amal Alamuddin

AmalAlamuddin Bride of the Year: Amal Alamuddin

British-born, Lebanese-by-descent human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin didn’t really tickle my fancy until her wedding weekend where she literally turned into a fashion icon overnight. Her entire persona and style just oozes class and confidence, and it seems to come very naturally to her – as apparent by the 4 looks she donned over the wedding festivities. Let’s have a look.

amalalamuddindolcegabbana Bride of the Year: Amal AlamuddinAmal (and George) touched down in Venice for their (DREAMY) wedding wearing a striped Dolce and Gabbana Spring 2013 midi dress which sold out immediately online.  She pairs the dress up with D&G earring and sling-backs. This was a great look – understated and chic – she looks like an old Hollywood star. The hatbox is a clever little addition that just adds to the class of this look.

She wears an Alexander McQueen gown altered to have a high-low hem for some added drama. I never expected Amal to be a risk-taker so this look came as an amazing surprise. Red lips and glossy hair finish this look off.

Amal’s wedding dress was designed by the master himself. Oscar de la Renta worked his magic and whipped up this dreamy lace concoction with a matching veil for the big day. Honestly this dress is perfect for Amal and she looked stunning as a bride.

amalalamuddingiambattista Bride of the Year: Amal AlamuddinThe day after her wedding Amal made a show-stopping appearance in this stunning Giambattista Valli gown. Giambattista is one of my favourites precisely for this reason – just look at that dress. It is beautiful, feminine, modern and intricate at the same time. And those shoes? Dying.

amalalamuddinstellamccartney Bride of the Year: Amal AlamuddinUm. Can you say perfection? Amal slayed the fashion world when she stepped out in this white Stella McCartney ensemble for her civil ceremony. She is statuesque, glamorous, age-appropriate and just flawless. I love this.

That is all.
