It’s been a busy week for stylistas; the weekend was especially loaded with the Kidney Centre Brunch in Karachi. It is confirmed that more branded sunglasses were spotted here than hats at the Races in Ascot. We’re still enjoying some style statements made on the Pond’s Miracle Gala, the previous week, and expect some artsy looks to float in at the Karachi Literature Festival this weekend. Last week also saw the opening of Caterpillar in Karachi and while we love men in yellow work-gear, we preferred the understated look Amna Ilyas wore to the red carpet…
Who: The Shady Bunch
Where: The Kidney Centre Brunch
Society dos are always heavy on branded designer wear and day events always draw attention to eyewear. This time, at the KCB, it was cool to see people pull out the stops with their shades. Seen here are Sadaf Malaterre (Chloe), Maheen Khan (Miu Miu), Frieha Altaf (Aldo) and Tapu Javeri (vintage 1950’s Persol), all looking very shady cool.
Who: Deepika Padukone
Where: Airport, Enroute CanadaDeepika Padikone was recently spotted at Mumbai International Airport as she packed her bags and left for Canada to shoot for her debut Hollywood film XXX: The Return of Xander Cage, opposite Vin Diesel. We love her casual, almost night-suit look that she’s obviously dressing up for the paparazzi with that stunning shade of red lipstick.
Who: Hadiqa Kiyani
Where: Pond’s Miracle GalaHadiqa Kiyani has always had an edgy, eclectic taste in clothes and at the PMG, it was interesting to see her in a deep hued, classic gown by Lahore-based upcoming designer, Natasha Kamal. Hadiqa, who is virtually ageless, carried it extremely well and looked stunning with her ‘date’, her son Naad-e-Ali.
Who: Amna Ilyas
Where: Caterpillar opening, KarachiAmna Ilyas is the best model in town and it’s a pity that she’s putting her modeling career on the backseat in favour of films. So, we were delighted to spot her on the red carpet at the inauguration of Caterpillar in Karachi. Dressed in this sheer organza jacket by Sania Maskatiya, she complemented the bright yellow ‘Cat’ gear very well.
Who: Sadaf Jalil
Where: Pond’s Miracle GalaThe petite and gorgeous Sadaf Jalil, who can be found at the Sana Safinaz studio looking equally glamorous in jeans and a tee (or lawn) every morning, totally owned this Peter Pilotto jumpsuit at the PMJ red carpet. She looked gorgeous; there is nothing more we need to say.
