Lux Style Awards 2016 – 5 Trends that stood out

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:

2. Statement Chokers

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.

3. Ruffles

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.

5. Rocking 50’s skirts

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.
