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 Ahmed, Maheen 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 ! :)

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?

When it comes to their personal style & sartorial choices, we’re big fans of both Sana Hashwani & Safinaz Muneer . With the designer duo opening their Flagship store in Lahore today, we take you back to Sana Safinaz’ recent few appearances.
Be it shorter hemlines, or the kimono wrap tunics, these ladies sure know how to get the trends rolling. Volumetric blow dries , pearl drop earrings, cigerette pants, cavallis , minimal make-up & peep-toes ; we have grown to love the signature Sana Safinaz look over the years. Backed by such a strong style quotient, their newly launched ready-to-wear clothing line & accessories are already a huge success with fashionistas across the nation.

Out of all four looks , which one is your favourite? We’re digging that canary yellow wrap tunic on Safinaz the most. Love it !!
Wearing Kimono wrap shirts from Maheen Karim’s pret line for Bonanza Summer collection 2013, Maheen & Frieha attended the collection’s launch event in Karachi. Compared to their runway versions these ladies fared the outfits wayyy better ( too much chaos with the hair & make-up on the runway) , however it was Maheen herself who stole the show. Very aptly put together look with cigerette pants, nude heels & a matching Bottega Veneta clutch. So Maheen !

Frieha’s version we believe the look felt a bit lackluster. Aside from teh shirt’s fitting issues, the hair made looked tad bit jarring against the colors of the dress. A neatly done fishtail or a low bun instead would have done wonders. You agree?
There are very few people in the our fashion Industry who can wear just about anything & manage to look great every single time. Fewer still who wear their own creations with as much pride as lets say Cavalli. We spotted a very radiant Safinaz Muneer ( the powerhouse behind Sana Safinaz ) seated front row at the Kamal Lawn 2013 launch in Karachi. She was wearing a Sana Safinaz gold embellished short shirt with matching pants & peep-toes. Hair thrown on the shoulders & a lovely pair of pearl earrings added the essential va-va-voom to her look.
Trend Alert : You may recall both Sana & Safinaz wearing shorter lengths since quite sometime now. ( See here & here). Well, it’s finally here & you can thank Safinaz for being the fashion forward one.

Fareshteh Aslam (Far Left/Centre), Shehla Chatoor (left) and Frieha Altaf (Right) at Fareshteh’s Brunch
Fareshteh Aslam played host to the who’s who of fashion Industry at a recently held brunch at her place. She wore an ivory Shehla Chatoor kaftan dress with a baroque-print clutch & black footwear. Shehla herself was in attendance wearing a Jacket with Fur trimming from her FPW’2012 Chinoiserie collection over a nude pencil skirt & white shirt. Frieha Altaf too was snapped in a baroque print BCBG by Max Azria kaftan dress with Michael Kors heels and a Shanghai Tang clutch.
Loved Shehla’s in-house print Jacket but the clutch was a deal-breaker. Plus it would have been nice to see her hair away from the face & more importanly that lovely jacket. Among all three Ladies, Fareshteh was an absolute favorite !! She looked great head-toe-toe.
P.S. Thank you Aamna Haider Isani & somethinghaute for the images & details..

Two different appearances of Azeeza Desai Khan (of Atelier AZZA) saw her in the same black leather leggings worn two different ways. For the SitaRam Chicago musical (rehersal ?) , she kept it casual in a fox fur vest from Theory ,statement necklace, signature red lips & ZARA skull slippers whereas at the launch of Atelier AZZA at LABELs Lahore , she glammed it up with a jeweled AZZA blazer, feathered clutch , purple Christian Louboutin pleated D’orsay & a BIG topknot. Our disbelief in the Loubs aside ( not feeling ‘em) , she looked gorgeous at both events. If we still have to pick one, we would pick the Sita Ram one. You?
You may buy the ZARA Slippers here. Psst..They’re on sale ;)
