Fashion Face Off

Aamina Sheikh at Seedlings movie premiere

It’s been almost a year when we last saw Aamina Sheikh wearing ELAN to Lamha / Seedlings movie premiere - Back then it was the movie’s world premiere, this week it was the Pakistan leg. The  lead actress was snapped wearing an oriental print dress from the Label’s ‘Ode to a Nightingale’ collection that was showcased at the PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week earlier this year (Read our review of the collection here ) . A soft Chignon , black crochet clutch & red lips completed her look.

Firstly, we’re glad that Aamina is someone who always puts in an effort into her public appearances, and experiments with a wide variety of silhouettes & designers ( see earlier ones here Ayesha Hashwani , Saamia AhmedMaheen Karim , Nabila ). Secondly, it was a great pick for the event in question considering Khadijah Shah herself chose to wear this at the PSFW’2013 red carpet. Thirdly, she looked nice especially the hair & make-up ( done by Bina Shah) looked great on her.

Last time, this is how we had ranked all three looks :  1. Runway  2. Aamina  3. Khadijah . This Time we’d say : 1. Khadijah   2. Runway  3. Aamina . Would’ve given it to Aamina had the sleeve fitting been taken care of, the pumps were replaced with strappy sandals & the hem would have used a few more inches.  Do you agree ? How would you rank them ?

On a side note, who is this fabulous girl next to Khadijah in the picture above ? Ahem – Yours’ Truly in a MUSE cloudprint maxi ! :)

Couple Face Off : Atif-Sara and Mehreen-Ahmed at LSA 2013

Oddly enough, both the newly wed couples were snapped in very similar looks at the LSA 2013 ; her in an elegantly draped cream sari and long side swept hair, him playing the dapper hubby in a black suit, matching tie and white shirt. Wait for it. The fashion face-off didn’t stop there. The Hubbies decided to keep their stubbles for the night while their lady loves went for dangly earrings and similar sandals to finish their perfect Bahu-Look. Strange, no?

Congratulating Mehreen on her well-deserved win for the Best Female Model. She was wearing a white chikankari sari by Mehdi & a matching Bottega Veneta Clutch.

So tell us , prefer a straight faced Atif-Sara Bharwana or a cheery Mehreen Syed-Ahmed Sheikh? Is it just us who are not aware of this wardrobe staple but what is that weird horizantal black strip around Atif’s chest? :/

Fashion Face-Off : QB & Aamina Sheikh in Fahad Hussayn

At their respective wedding events, both Quratulain Balouch & Aamina Sheikh went for an off-the-runway Fahad Hussayn ensemble from the designer’s PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week collection. While QB wore hers exactly like the runway version, Aamina went for a heavier look pairing the lehenga & dopatta with an embellished shirt (Fahad again? ).

Although we’re big Aamina Sheikh fans but we’ll give this one to QB – for being fun & quirky with her wedding outfit & styling it accordingly. We would’nt have approved Aamina’s pink shirt on anyone else , but she still managed to look good. Agreed?

P.S. On a side note, love Fia’s black-gold saree with the red lip.

Hadiqa Kiyani’s Three-way Fashion Face-Off

Sticking true to the signature style lace shrugs that Hadiqa has been spotted wearing twice earlier (see here & here), it was yet another white lace shrug by Quiz for her at a recent Boutique launch. She paired the shrug over a striped vest & blue Jeggings. Although we think the look could have turned out great with a blazer instead,  compared to the other two , this one was definitely better.

Sana (or) Safinaz ?

At a recent lawn launch, Safinaz Muneer was spotted in similar version of the designer duo’s zig-zag printed shirt that was earlier worn by Sana Hashwani at the launch of ‘One’ by Ensemble in Karachi. A different color but an almost similar cut & collar in both versions. While Sana kept the whole look formal & accessorized , Safinaz went rather casual with a simple black clutch & open hair. We liked Safinaz’s purple version wee bit better than Sana’s.

Fashion Face-Off – Sri Devi & Kareena’s Manish Malhotra sari

There was something about the on-stage flash or the blouse of Sri Devi’s Manish Malhotra sari that made this look close to being tacky. We prefer the silver-sequin version of the same sari that Kareena wore at the Filmfare awards earlier this year.  The drape should also have been spread out & not pinned up – not for this one. You agree or is it just our bias for Kareena speaking here ? :/

Three-Way Fashion Face Off

We spotted the same rust-gold Sana Safinaz dress top on Frieha recently that Sana Hashwani wore to the 3rd Fashion Pakistan Week Red Carpet in April this year. At both events,  for a TV Morning Show and Veet Miss Super Model Press Meet , Frieha chose to wear the top with white pants (very much like Sana). Although both ladies did a good job at their respective events, we think Frieha fared it the best for the morning show – thanks to the Green neck piece & open hair.
