Desi Bride: Faryal Makhdoom’s Valima

June 23, 2013

I know I’m really late with this post, but I was on one of my 3-day blogging hiatus which usually occurs when I am too lazy to lift my fingers to type a word. Oops.
Faryal Makhdoom bride After her somewhat lacklustre bridal appearance 2 weeks ago in NYC, Faryal Makhdoom went the princess route for her valima held in Britain last week. Shall we delve into dissecting the look?

I think we shall

Faryal once again chose Indian courtier Tarun Tahiliani for her bridal ensemble. The pale pink net organza overlay is covered with intricate embroidery and is paired with a choli and lehnga.

I don’t love this dress. The lighter color palette is a welcome change from the deep hues of her wedding day outfit, but the embellishment is where it loses me. I don’t like the white scalloped embroidery on the hem, it reminds me of those cheap little Victorian-era dolls and their dresses.

Faryal and her hairstylist seem to have some sort of animosity between them. Why else would he/she let her step out, time after time, with such atrocious hairdos. Seriously, what IS that? It is the most ridiculous hairstyle ever, although it doesn’t outdo her engagement disaster. I just don’t understand, would a simple chignon or even one not so BIG have killed them?

I don’t know if Naeem Khan is responsible for the makeup again, the contouring is a little toned down but  I hate the red lip with the light dress. It is too jarring. And honey,  throw out the blue contacts.

Let’s talk about Mr. Tacktastic over here for a second. What is the name of God is Amir Khan wearing??? A paisley jacket??? With a satin shirt and tie??? REALLY???? I can’t even.

Here is how goodlooking this couple actually is

    I think FM has some self image issues. Ridiculously heavy makeup, BIG hairdos and blue contacts… she is trying to become something… not sure what.

    I don’t think anything could ever come as close to her disastrous engagement hair!!! They look so much better au naturel. She’s a beautiful girl, not sure why she likes to hide behind so many layers of makeup. The funny thing is, this is the kind of looks that Asian brides prefer over here in England! Bizarre

    not nice at all, naeem khan needs some makeup lessons, and the dress :/

    seriously thats all i’m going to say “:/”

    Lets stick with our better than perfect Pakistani designers shall we?

    The prettiest she’s looked so far to me is when she got her makeup done from Pakistan for a cover page shoot.
