if you’re like me, or any other pakistani woman in any corner of the world, you have a slightly unhealthy obsession with khirad and asher aka mahira and fawad and their drama serial humsafar.
designer umar sayeed took full advantage of the magnetic couple’s popularity by casting them as showstoppers for his recent bridal show at the pfdc l’oreal bridal fashion week in lahore. ok so we get how otherworldy specimens of beauty these two are, but god daym how about the clothes?
i cannot even deal with the gorgeousness that is these outfits. umar sayeed is best known for his intricate, heavily embellished bridals. these looks are no exception. mahira and fawad wear a matching lehnga + sherwani. perfect for a couple who is going for the full-blown glamour+bling+royal look.
fawad wears a dove gray sherwani embellished with umar sayeed’s trademark zardozi work in silver. i absolutely love how the embellishment just blends into the color of the sherwani. it seems to be twinkling. the band-gala sherwani coat is paired with a white button down kurta with pleating detail and a tang pajama. it really takes a fashionable man to carry off a tang pajama. a shalwar with this sherwani would be an atrocity. and hai he’s so cute naaa.
mahira wears a lehnga in the same shade of gray. her lehnga is accented with lavender and shots of magenta. the same intricate embellishment adorns the gown of the lehnga. a purple border with silver motifs add a finished look to the hem. gray has been a huge trend of brides in 2011, and i feel the trend will continue into 2012.
i know this might be too much for some people, considering the lehnga, dupatta and gown are all covered with zardozi work – but i just cannot get enough. i think it is perfection. the fact that the color of the outfit and the embellishment are almost the same keep it from being too gaudy. aside from the absolutely dazzling ensemble – i love the styling: simple baubles and a bejeweled bun. it is all very stunning together
this whole get-up is gorgeous. and any couple would look gorgeous in it. make me a happy pumpkin and wear something like this on your wedding you couples to be! and then send me pictures. ok thanks. bye.
