The number of red carpet events in Pakistan per year can easily be counted on one hand, with half of those being fashion weeks, so it’s really exciting when an actual awards show pops up. The Lux Style Awards are the only happening awards show in the country, with the whos who of the fashion, film and television fraternity making appearances.
While everyone tries to make a statement on the red carpet, most of them fail – which is quite sad considering the amount of amazing fashion available in Pakistan. So here are my picks for the best dressed at this year’s LSAs.
:: Meesha Shafi ::
I don’t understand why everyone doesn’t just wear Élan. Stop experimenting and go with something that is tried and tested ladies. Meesha Shafi, who hardly ever fails in the fashion department, opted for a gorgeous black embellished gown for the affair. Her asymmetrical dress is covered with beading and has Oriental inspired embroidery cascading down the side. The gown, from Élan’s latest collection, is just everrryyything. Berry lips and a GORJ tassled clutch completes this award-winning look.
:: Mahira Khan ::
Mahira Khan also opted to wear Élan’s latest collection. The dress itself is stunning, with pearl encrusted cuffs and a sheer printed skirt, and Mahira’s lithe figure does it complete justice. She pairs the dress up with unexpected cobalt sandals (from Zara I believe) and a simple clutch. While she looks beautiful, I wish she had gone the extra mile to get a proper blowdry. I much prefer Meesha’s polished look at this event.
