MTV VMA 2013: Best Dressed Celebrities

Thankfully not everyone went as cuckoo as Miley Cyrus that night, and we still got to see a decent amount of decency! Honestly, white trash never looked this bad! I know it’s just a little too late, BUT, to help everyone, mainly myself, get over her not-so-forgettable performance, I decided to compile a best dressed list for MTV VMA 2013. Continue reading

Veet Celebration of Beauty 2013: The good, the bad and the downright ugly!

To say that the event was an improvement from the 2012 version would be a vast understatement. Not only was it much larger in scale, it also had added features this time around. The Beauty Awards segment specifically added much value to Veet Celebration of Beauty 2013 by turning it into a star-studded evening.

Needless to say; the Pink Carpet, as they like to call it, saw quite a number of celebrity appearances. From models to actresses, from singers to designers, all were in attendance. Some basking in their glory, while others wilted like a bunch of flowers unkempt.

Hence, I decided to compile a list of the best-dressed beauties and the worst dressed beasts.

Let’s start off with the BEAUTIES, shall we? Continue reading

Etalage – An eclectic clothing brand from Lahore

Mesmerising colors and elegant cuts is what this brand is all about. A touch of sequins here, a dash of color there and you get something unique out of it, just like the brand itself!

Etalage‘s Philosophy:

The idea behind Etalage is; “Less Is More” which is why the cuts, lines, colors and the overall outlook of our outfits is toned down, subtle and elegant. Our primary aim is to make clothes that are very practical yet trendy at the same time.  Continue reading

Limelight: In the limelight!

I’ve been meaning to do a feature on Limelight for quite some time now, but didn’t get the time to get around to it until today when I was planning to order yet another batch of their products.

Limelight is a Prêt brand offering a variety of clothing, shoes, accessories and much more. The best part however is their pricing, which is pretty affordable and a little below the scale than our average retail brands. Let’s have a look at what they have in store:

Thank God I’m Fabulous – An upcoming clothing label from Lahore

Fab, fabulous, fabulousness. That’s TGIF summed up in three words.

We had a little one on one with Zainab Masood – The creator of Thank God I’m Fabulous about the brand, her inspirations and the Eid collection that was completely sold out on their first exhibition. Kudos to that!

Featuring a superb range of edgy and unique graphic prints, here you will see a lot of love for comics, retro pin-ups, vintage and kitschy oddities and desi pop art- along with a number of other things that are sure to make you happy!

This Eid, go WHITE!

Dreamy whites and pastels are the usual color palette for KOEL, but this time around all the brands seem to be catching up the white fever.

If there is one thing consistent in all Eid catalogues for 2013; it’s the predomination of the color WHITE. From Khaadi to Bareeze, Generation to Origins – Ready to Wear and Chinyere to Ethnic by Outfitters, they all have a piece in white if not more. The Eid collection from Nida Azwer‘s Atelier seems to be spot on with the trend and is by far my favorite collection.  Continue reading
