Lux Style Awards 2013

The 2013 LUX Style Awards took place this month in Lahore. Now in their 12th year, the awards are to celebrate and honour the best Pakistan has to offer in Music, TV, Film and Fashion.

I don't really follow Pakistani films or TV, so I didn't instantly recognise most of the attendees and winners, but regardless of that, here are some of my favourite outfits from the red carpet:

Printed Dresses
First up is Amber in a printed gown from Maheen Karim's "Paradis" collection. I really like the bold design and it has an animal-print feel to it. I've seen this outfit on catwalk models, on other celebs and it looks good on them all!

Fareshteh Aslam in an outfit by Shehla Chatoor - another printed outfit. The only part of the outfit I'm not so sure about is the fringing at the bottom.
It's interesting to see how different this style of outfit looked on the catwalk - the model is showing off A LOT more skin!

Bright Colours
Ammara Hikmat, Momina Sibtain and Andleeb Rana. I had to post this photo because I love the bright colours these ladies chose. I'm not sure about the draping part of the yellow gown on the left which is on the floor, perhaps a feature which would look better in a photoshoot?

Vaneeza and Nomi Ansari

Murtaza Aftab, Huma Murtaza Shah with a friend. I'm instantly drawn to the lime green outfit on the left - another design by Shehla Chatoor. This photo doesn't really show off the dress, but here's a photo from the catwalk:

Sultry dark outfits
Hira Tareen and Zoe Viccaji. The black dress is more appealing to me than the green asymmetric outfit. Compared to some of the other outfits on the catwalk, the black dress is quite modest/covered up, but still looks chic and has some glamour - I like her make-up and choice of hairstyle too!
As for the green outfit, I'm not a big fan of the gold border on her top and compared to the draping on some of the other dresses, like the Shehla Chatoor dresses, this really doesn't compare.


Another chic black dress and another assymetric/one sleeve design, this time Meesha Shafi wearing a design by Elan.
Her styling is very similar to how the dress looked on the catwalk, with hair all up, although no statement necklace:

Shimmering in Gold
Gold was the colour to shine in at this event, here are three of my favourite gold outfits:
Humaima's dress is by Laila Chatoor.

Designer Maheen Karim presumably in an outfit she designed herself?

Fareeha Pervaiz, showing that you can still shine in gold if you don't want to wear it head-to-toe.

Which outfit do you think looks best...and which would you choose to wear yourself?
