Shoe Spotting – Faryal Aftab at Paris Lahore Karachi Fashion Show

Creative Head of Fashion Label ‘MUSE’ , Faryal Aftab ,along with a small contingent of designers , flew to Paris recently to showcase their collections at the ‘Paris Lahore Karachi Fashion Show’ . For the presentation night, the designer wore a black billowy dress with a ruffled neckline (most certainly her own or Lanvin considering the designer’s strong affinity for these two Labels). Red Valentino studded heels & matching tomatoe lips added just the right amount of va-va-voom to a very Parisian look. She looked Good !

Although the signature side swept curls work most of the times, we’d like to see Faryal play up with the hair more often. It would be a nice change, you see.

On a side note, how Dapper did all the Boys look. It’s hard to pick a favorite but if we must, we’ll go for Kamiar for pulling off a shalwar kameez+blazer look so well. Here’s your look at them.

COVER GIRL – MAHIRA KHAN FOR HELLO PAKISTAN

Mahira Khan on June 2013 issue of Hello Pakistan

After PAPER MAGAZINE and SundayTimes, Mahira Khan has landed herself yet another magazine cover ; this time being the June issue of HELLO Pakistan. Quite a sassy & fashion forward look for a cover we must say; been longing one for ages. Mahira wears separates from Sania Maskatiya’s latest PSFW’2013 collection “Naqsh” , accessorized with Miu Miu peep-toes and gold jewels.

It is no doubt that the cover is by far one of HELLO’s best. That said, minus the YSL earrings (the necklace sufficed) and different footwear (it’s too Saturday night), this would have been a 10 on 10 for us.

She was styled by Alyzeh Rahim and the hair & make-up was done by everybody’s favourite, Natasha’s Salon.  Love that topknot on Mahira.

TOY WATCH SPOTTING

Remember when we first Blogged about Meher Tareen wearing the Toy watch?  Well it seems like the IT accessory of 2012  is going to carry forward the Title this year as well. As seen in Elle, Vogue, Vanity Fair, The New York Times and GQ, Toy Watch can be hailed as the hottest wrist-watch of recent times. It’s fun, sporty & a great way to jazz up your look at an affordable price . International stars such as Oprah Winfrey, Alicia Keys, Naomi Campbell, Madonna & Michelle Obama (see below) have already been there, sported that.

This year Toy Watch introduced the brand in Pakistan in collaboration with its brand ambassador and king of couture, HSY at PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week.  Ever since then, we have been spotting it on our favorite celebs & designers at various events. Here’s your look at all those who have been snapped wearing it recently.

What they wore to the SO KAMAL Lunch

Erum Kamal recently played host to the Fashion Glitterati of Lahore at a lunch organized by SO KAMAL. We loved spotting an entire brigade of ladies in clean KAMAL Lawn by Zara Shahjahan suits, however this time it was high street-high end combo that caught our attention. Here’s your look at some of our favourite looks from the lunch.

So Kamal Lunch in Lahore

Loved the look head-to-toe ! The crossover blouse is a favourite at ZARA this summer season, and Chanel Boy Bag with the Lahori women

So Kamal Lunch in Lahore

If  there had to be a perfect pick for a summer brunch, this canary yellow dress by ZARA would be IT. She kept the look minimal with a Van cleef & Arpels necklace & Louboutin slingbacks. The cape sleeves are right On Trend ! 

So Kamal Lunch in Lahore

The Bottega Veneta clutch spottings. P.S. Don’t get us wrong there, we totally hated Erum Alam’s knot shirt-cum-kurta.
