Bag Spotting

SPOTTED : Shehla Chatoor & Ammara Hikmat in Shehla

After her glamorous presentation at the PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week, we spotted pieces from Shehla Chatoor’s Soigne collection at two different events. A debutant on our Blog, Ammara Hikmat was snapped in a slightly modified, jumpsuit version of Shehla’s silk dress at the 2013 Cannes film Festival (turn’s out Ali Zafar & Ayesha Fazli weren’t our only exports) . A pair of Mango hoops and a tan Tory Burch clutch added just the right amount of finishing details. The looked could have been further elevated with different hair , beachy waves or a Grecian updo maybe, but she  still managed to look great.

Shehla too attended the recent launch of L’Oreal Revitalift BB Cream launch in one of her own designs. The jacket version was of course a perfect pick over the white separates and she looked fab head-to-toe. So Whatdyya think, between the designer and her Muse, who get’s your vote this time?

GET THE LOOK : Mehreen Syed at Nida Azwer’s Lahore Store Launch

At the recently held launch of Nida Azwer’s Standalone flagship store in Lahore, Mehreen Syed went for a relaxed tailored look in white separates, pairing them up with a bright blue blazer. Tan Hermes Birkin bag, matching TOD’s moccasins & an Hermes belt added finishing details , perfectly complementing the outfit.

Though we would’ve loved to see a pop of color by way of her make-up , but we ain’t complainin’. At least somebody finally got the Birkin right *pun intended* . Here’s how you can get the Look:

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 !

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

JUST IN : Sania Maskatiya at Sapphire Lawn by Sania Maskatiya Lahore Exhibition

Here’s your first look at the lovely Sania Maskatiya playing host at the ongoing ‘Sapphire Lawn by Sania Maskatiya‘ Lahore exhibition. Both Sania & her sister (left in the picture) are wearing stitched shirts from the collection, with Sania adding a pair o’ pumps & Balenciaga cobalt blue clutch to her outfit. Check back later for less ‘red’ pictures (that is iff there will be any owing to the wrongly done lighting by the Event Management at the venue).

The collection is being exhibited from 11am-9pm at Mall 1 at Main Boulevard, Gulberg Lahore….It is a one-day event, so GO SHOP !

Top Fashion Trends 2013 : Neon Accents

Neons & February (s) give us such a high sense of Déjà vu !  Well apparently neon will continue to hold on for yet another spring season. Neon accents were just about everywhere on the runway at the recently concluded New York Fashion Week ; Tanya Taylor, Victoria Beckham and Rag & Bone  to name a few . At the local front, we spotted the trend on Sanam Chaudhri & Andleeb Rana (Editor XPoz’e magazine). Sanam paired her sassy Kirkwoods with hot pink pants & a cowl  neck top. She looked super charming & cheerful !

Andleeb on the other hand went for a more relaxed look in neon yellow pants with white tunic & pink fluoro Cambridge Satchel.

Both the ladies looked quite similar. No? If only Andleeb didn’t have the bag displayed on her tummy, we would’ve given it to both – this time  it’s Sanam for us !

We have been in a state of inertia ever since the PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week ended. A constant reminder had been popping up in our heads to review the umpteen Red Carpet looks that we had been doing our homework on….But that’s the thing about Bridal Weeks – they can be overwhelming… Well… Better late than never :) After all, you guys do love Red Carpet anytime & everytime they come on AWardrobeAffair. Out first pick : the host of the Black Carpet herself , Amna Kardar.

For Day 2 (she skipped Day1) of the Fashion Week, Amna wore a Kamiar Rokni halter neck dress & jacket from the designer’s Islamabad Fashion Week 2011 collection. Compared to the runway model, Amna wore hers well, with the sky-high platforms & Samia & Azmay Shahzada nude Clutch. We like !

Later in the night, she switched to a yellow Nida Azwer dress from Nida’s Parinda collection. Wish we had clearer full-length picture of this one, but from what we saw , this was our favorite look of Amna from PLBW. Loved the color against her skin tone.

Both Day3 & Day4 saw Amna in some heavy bridal dresses by Karma. In a perfect world, we wouldnt have wanted to see such heavy dresses on the the Black Carpet, but the nude one was an absolute stunner. She paired it up with nude heels by Insignia & some bangles which we wish she skipped. On the other hand, the Day4 look felt a tad bit overwhelming with the heavy make-up & earrings. Wish she had stylized it the same way as she did on Day3.

Nabila donning some Trendy Accessories

A recent airing of Geo Shaan Say had Nabila put in an appearance looking uber stylish in a blue ombr’e blouse & creme wide legged pants. Compared to her previous appearance on the show (here), this was an absolute winner. Infact, one of the best outfit choices we have seen Nabila make recently. However what made the look stand out were trendy accessories ; a blue leather purse from YSL & Two-toned cobalt blue -aqua ZARA sandals perfectly complemented the separates.
