Unforgettable looks of the week!



Marium Saqib Marium’s look is oh so fun! She wears a belted knee length striped cotton dress and her funky shades make it look all the more fun. She accessorises with a Gucci bag and kicks. The perfect daytime look, we’re loving the vibe!

Zara Shahjahan Zara looks feminine in her pleated gold skirt which she pairs with a long black turtle neck top. She keeps her hair fuss free in a sleek high pony and completes her look with big gold hoops and maroon pumps. Très chic!

FEBRUARY 11-17 2018


Amna Baber Amna pulls of this savvy look in skinny leather pants and a crisp white cotton top which she tucks in for an overall chic look. She opts for a simple and fuss free hairstyle. Those sunnies are definitely increasing her glam quotient!


FEBRUARY 11-17 2018

Anaum Hammad Anaum looks super cool in a black turtle neck top, high waisted denim jeans and a multi-colored fur coat. Her boots complement her fur coat and to make the look funkier she wears a cross body bag. The peachy make-up and pulled back hair completes her look perfectly!

Alyzeh Gabol Alyzeh puts her best foot forward in a velvet jumpsuit and taupe fur wrap - perfect for a winter evening. The chic slit is perfect to show off these gorgeous N°21 heels!




Make-up artist and director at Ganache CafĂŠ, Maleeha Salman decodes her style. Like most Lahoris, she loves to indulge in food but keeps herself in shape with regular yoga practice. She tells us about her style transformation and how she dresses according to her body type Understanding your body is the key to looking good and a trait found amongst all impeccably dressed fashionistas. While people shy away from talking about their bodies, these brave souls explain how they work their anatomies to their advantage

FEBRUARY 11-17 2018


How do you describe your body type? Lean and toned. Has your body type changed over the last five years? It hasn’t changed much but as the natural cycle goes, my metabolism has slowed down. To counter it I resort to yoga. How has your style changed over the years? I feel your style is defined by where you live but with time, trends have evolved so fast that no one can adopt a permanent style. My style is continuously changing and I’m experimental with my dressing. In your opinion what is your most troublesome area? My belly and arms. How do you dress your body according to your body type? You will mostly see me in a pair of jeans and a t-shirt but it all depends on my mood. In your opinion what is the biggest mistake a person can make while dressing here? By going over the top with their dressing in an effort to impress others and not being comfortable in their own skin. What silhouettes suit your body the most? Ok, I’m not being arrogant but most styles suit me. I love wearing jumpsuits and flowy trousers with a nice top and a good pair of heels. I believe if you’re fit you will look good in anything. What is the one piece of clothing that you shy away from wearing and why? These days figure hugging dresses especially around the waist, as I have a bulging belly.

FAMILY With Natasha

and Tanya Hussain Natasha Hussain, a model and host, and her daughter Tanya, a student at University College London, majoring in history, share a strong bond. Tanya wants to pursue acting and also wants to complete her Masters. The mother and daughter duo tell us all about the special bond they share

What’s your first memory of each other? Natasha: The first time I saw Tanya is when she was born in Boston. She was so fair that I thought she would get mixed up with the other babies so I started screaming “tag her, tag her, please tag her name Tanya!” haha. Tanya: My first memory of Mama is when she dropped me to school on my first day (I was two and a half) and I was really sad to leave her. But when I walked out of class crying, the first thing I saw was her sitting on the bench waiting for me! What is the craziest thing you have done together? Natasha: We both climbed the Mushkpuri peak in Nathiagali together just to spend time with each other away from the world. Tanya: It was wedding season and we were going from one wedding to another and we ended up switching our clothes in the car! FEBRUARY 11-17 2018


If you could only wear one piece of clothing for the rest of your life, from the others closet, what would it be? Natasha: Her UCL sweatshirt which she does not let me touch! Tanya: Mama’s seven pairs of skinny jeans that she never lets me wear. If you could swap places with each other, what’s the first thing you would do? Natasha: Go to UCL instead of Kinnair College Lahore. Tanya: I would just make the most of being the very charming Natty! What is the one thing you love about each other? Natasha: I love the fact that Tia is the best listener, therefore ends up giving the best advice ever. Tanya: The fact that not only is she my mother, but she is also my best friend. If you are fighting with each other, how do you make up? Natasha: The best way to make up with Tia is to start talking to her about something that is of her interest, like going into acting. Tanya: All I have to do is serve her tea with her favourite biscuits (her fave combo) and she starts smiling! What is the one secret talent your mum/daughter has that you wish you did too? Natasha: Tia has this amazing talent of making the less privileged ones fall absolutely in love with her. Tanya: The ability to be super relaxed, even in super crazy situations. Describe your mum/daughter in three words: Natasha: My only confidante! Tanya: Caring, fiery and ambitious. Which fictional character is your mum/daughter most like? Natasha: Sleeping Beauty as she loves her sleep. Tanya: Belle from Beauty and the Beast because she’s very beautiful, caring and affectionate. How are your personalities similar? Natasha: We both love being the centre of attention! Tanya: We are both very family oriented. I can’t live without mum/daughter because… Natasha: She’s the life in me! Tanya: Without her love, presence, guidance and support, I am nothing!

One Piece, Three Ways WITH LULUSAR While trends fade, style remains eternal and one piece can be put together in many different ways. In this feature we have three fashionistas showing us how to put together an item from a designer’s collection, according to their own individual style and taste!


d his chic printed shrug is a versatile piece by Lulusar that can be worn in various ways to create different looks. For a casual look, pair with a trendy top and jeans or wear it over a jump suit for a more formal look. e We love the edgy vibe that can be created with this piece! FEBRUARY 11-17 2018


Sophiya Salim Khan Photographer Absolutely loved styling this trendy Chaarba shrug from Lulusar! It’s such a versatile piece that can easily be dressed up or down. Mixing its fabric with timeless black is a foolproof option. I paired this shrug with a basic black tank top, classy Mango trousers, a red belt and a pair of brown Aldo heels to create an uber chic look; perfect for this year’s spring events. Moreover, the make-up was kept dewy and fresh for an effortless fuss-free look.


FEBRUARY 11-17 2018

Mehek Raza Rizvi Journalist I styled this vibrant striped Lulusar shrug with an off white-tank top from Mango and velvet pants from Jamdaani. I’ve been on the lookout for casual, summery outfits. This works perfectly for a spring brunch or a casual evening out. This look is modern yet classy and a great addition to any holiday wardrobe. To add to the look, I decided to go for a blow dry, kept my make-up in gold and bronze hues with pink lips for a perfect spring afternoon.

FEBRUARY 11-17 2018


Sahar Noon Interior designer I absolutely love this chic Chaarba shrug. The silhouette is so versatile; you can wear it in multiple ways. My signature style is very minimalistic and adding the striped monochromes with highlights of yellow made me feel vibrant and adventurous. I paired it with black skinny trousers, a blue velvet top and jazzed it up with dull gold earrings and statement shoes.

Urwa Hocane replaces Sohai Ali Abro in ‘Kaaf Kangana’ Exceptional writer Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar returns to directing with his second venture, Kaaf Kangana. Qamar recently revealed his film’s leading trio – Sohai Ali Abro, Sami Khan and Ghana Ali. However, in a turn of events, it was reported that Urwa Hocane would now be taking the female lead of an Indian girl, Kangana, opposite Sami Khan. The cast change hasn’t affected the shooting schedules at all. Urwa has joined the set in Lahore and will reshoot the sequences Sohai had shot in Islamabad last month.

Rizwan Beyg to represent Pakistan at the Commonwealth Fashion Exchange Seasoned designer Rizwan Beyg makes Pakistan proud as he gets chosen to represent Pakistan, along with a number of designers from all over the world, at the Commonwealth Fashion Exchange at the Buckingham Palace. The Commonwealth’s 52 countries are coming together for the first time to celebrate the power and potential of artisans, and to encourage new partnerships, trade networks and sustainability across states. Way to go Rizwan!

Could Saba Qamar be a part of Hindi Medium’s sequel? Rumour has it Hindi Medium’s sequel is in the works and ever since the film became a blockbuster hit, it went on to pick up some coveted awards. People can’t help but wonder if Saba Qamar will be a part of the sequel. This is the first time that an actress from Pakistan was nominated for a Best Actor (female) in a Leading Role category. Irrfan Khan will hands down be a part of the film but whether Qamar is in it or not remains unknown, considering the unofficial ban of actors from Pakistan working in India. When asked, Saba Qamar said, “After the massive success of Hindi Medium, the producers are all set for a schedule. I hope Irrfan and I get to work in the second installment of the blockbuster.” We’ll just have to wait and see what happens!

The actors starred together in the 2015 film The Revenant. DiCaprio had then said Hardy would bag an Oscar nomination for it.
