Oh how we are dying to see Aisha make wiser choices for her public appearances. This one felt meh - from the black thigh cut dress itself, to the sequin shrug to the pumps. The actress is drop dead gorgeous & we know she has it in her to give that ‘WOW’ look everybody’s waiting for.

2. Mahira Khan in Feeha Jamshed
We re still in a state of denial to see someone as fashionable correct as Mahira step out in such a ‘confused’ look . Waist down, the cut of the dress was just odd – we would blame Feeha for that. Moreover , the vintage choker was too eastern-ey to be worn with a dress & was the most prominent flaw in Mahira’s look. The black patent pumps just added to the whole confusion.

3. Mehreen Syed
It was saddening to see someone as gorgeous as Mehreen make such a safe & boring choice at the awards *yawwwn*. The hair updo looked flat & messy & the clutch felt oddly out of place. So uninspiring compared to her look from the last year’s LSAs.

4. Sanam Saeed in Maheen Karim
Frankly we dont know who to blame here – Sanam or Maheen. The dress itself was too overwhelming . The hair & earrings were also poorly planned. Though she looked sexy on stage (see picture below) , wonder what went wrong at the Green Carpet.
At the recently held ‘Magnum Chocolate Party’ at Convention Centre Karachi, we spotted quite a few celebrities of fashion fraternity make interesting picks for the event . Here s a fashion round-up of the launch party and while you’re at it ,we’ll go grab the new Belgian Chocolate Magnum . Its Divine !
1. Ayyan Ali & Aisha Linnea in Deepak Perwani
Brand embassadors & members of the ‘Magnum Council’ Ayyan Ali & Aisha Linnea Akhter both wore similarly embellished sequin dresses by Deepak Perwani at the party. While Aisha’s gold number was still bearable from at a distance (as the pattern meshed into vague shimmery work) Ayyan’s was ‘horrible’ (as Andaleeb Rana likes to put it). Blame Deepak !

2. Frieha Altaf in Jaun Paul Gaultier printed maxi dress
Frieha wore an interesting Gaultier multi-colored strapless maxi to the launch party. We think it was a wise choice for a summer night in Karachi & Frieha wore it well by keeping the accessories minimal. The only teeny little gripe we have is with the scarf around the arms. Think Frieha should have skipped it altogether. Nonetheless, we still like the whole look.

3. Ayesha Omer in Shehla Chatoor
There s no denying it made for a refreshing change to see Ayesha Omer in a fresh-off-the-runway black shimmery dress by Shehla Chatoor. She completed her look with gold accessories, black peep-toes & a gold clutch by Shehla. We like how the dress falls below her knees as opposed to the one on the model. The hair too complemented the whole look.

4. Andaleeb Rana in a Tapulicious ‘scarf’
When we first got to know who Andaleeb was wearing, we kept looking for the ‘scarf’ in the look. Interestingly enough, she was ‘dressed’ in the multicolored printed scarf by Tapu Javeri, tailored into an off-shoulder dress by designer Sania Maskatiya. Wish we had a full-length picture. She looked cute & funky.

4. Madiha Sultan in Sania Maskatiya
Madiha, who is the CEO of ‘LAL’s Chocolates’ stepped out like a complete celeb at the launch party dressed in a black draped dress by Mrs. Maskatiya. We loved the dress & we love how she accessorized it with a black & gold striped clutch & gold earrings.

5. Tooba Siddique
We dont have a full-length picture of Tooba & so we cant really comment who she s wearing. However, from what we see, waist up she looks gorgeous. Loved the side swept bun !!

6. Shehla Chatoor
One to be always one of the best dressed around, Shehla attended the event in a strapless leopard print max. We re not sure if its her own (or a Cavalli – maybe ) , it looked great on her. Only wish the dress fell a little longer on her.

7. Table girls wearing ‘Tables’
As ‘Instep’ likes to put it “Imported from Dubai, well rather hired from there, these table girls were Caucasians who moved with the tables that surrounded them. Some people ooh and aahed and enjoyed the drama of it, while others were heard saying what was that? ”

To us it was wee bit freaky to see mobile girls, more of table mermaids at the event =S See it for yourself in the video below.
