A recent airing of ’Jago Pakistan Jago‘ had Mahira Khan put in a special guest appearance with the entire ‘Sheher-e-Zaat‘ Team. This fresh-off-the-Fashion Pakistan Week-runway Misha Lakhanivelvet dress was also spotted on Madiha Sultan at Lal’s Patisserie launch recently (picture below). While Madiha kept her’s casual with a sleek tan belt, Mahira paired her’s with a broader one and ochre silk pants. Compared to Madiha, we liked Mahira’s version better, with the hairdo , longer sleeves & pants, although we feel a pair of navy pants would have been a much better choice. A minor gripe but the creases in the pants make it an ‘Almost there‘ for us.

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.
