Assistant editor Amna Ayaz Khan goes trend spotting on the Lux Style Awards red carpet.
Styling is still a nascent industry here in Pakistan so red carpet trend-spotting can be a bit of a challenge. Still we did manage to find a few of the glitterati channeling some fun trends.
1. The Bold Lip
There’s nothing that speaks glam like a bold lip, be it the classic crimson or vivacious plum. Women at this year’s red carpet certainly did not shy away from popping lippy. Check out how the uber-stylish Rabia Butt pulls off this trend with ease and Anusheh Shahid of the Style Haven Blog sporting that ever-so-chic cherry red lip:
Chokers dominate the style sphere this year, both locally and internationally. LSA had its choker moment when Urwa stepped out wearing this gorgeous Rema Luxe choker with a major Game of Thrones vibe.
Ruffles have been Spring/Summer 2016’s most romantic trend and Alyzeh Gabol nailed it in this deep cobalt blue Sana Safinaz number – tres chic.
4. Side Curls
Old-school Hollywood glamour is always a good red carpet look and more than one star opted for tinseltown-inspired side swept curls over ironed locks. Check out Mahira and Ayesha Omar channeling their inner Hollywood diva by rocking that side curl look.
The ball skirt got a makeover this season with a less gathered, 1950s-style re-invention. Both Ayesha Omar and Maya Ali swung it like pros in their creations by Tena Durrani and Nomi Ansari respectively.
