The 13th Lux Style Awards’ (LSA) high-tea may have been a less grandiose affair than usual, but the event can always be relied upon for some high-flying red carpet moments. Stalking by the lavish dessert table, platters of hors d’oeuvres and glorious florals was some standout designer-wear, accessorised by that coveted, oft-elusive silver statuette.
Here’s who we think looked best at the LSA’s this year:
Aamina Sheikh in Shehla Chatoor
It was a no-brainer that Aamina Sheikh was pinpointed as ‘Best Dressed’ at the LSA’s, given that she absolutely rocked Shehla Chatoor’s leather accents, making them her own. The ‘Best Actress’ winner for her film Seedlings looked stunning in a hot-off-the-ramp ‘Misaki’ skirt, paired with a fitted blouse in latticed leather.
Cybil Chowdhry in HSY
Cybil Chowdhry was the sophisticated ‘Best Model’ in a deep blue floor-length gown from HSY’s PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week ‘Divine Decadence’ collection. Worked with embroideries and hand-stitched sequins over silk-net and worn with an exquisite beaded jacket, this was one of HSY’s all-time best red carpet outings.
Sanam Saeed in Misha Lakhani
Sanam Saeed epitomised Misha Lakhani’s effortless, understated glamour in a printed silk dress with a sequined boat-neck. With loosely curled hair and statement earrings by Outhouse, the ‘Best Actress Satellite’ winner for Zindagi Gulzar Hai absolutely glowed!
Not many people would have been able to carry the fitted, off-shoulder silk dress worn by Amna Babar – but the svelte ‘Emerging Talent’ winner wore it just right. Especially created by Sana Safinaz for her, the dress, draped, wound and slit at the knee emphasised exactly why Amna’s ‘emerged’ so well as a model.
Fawad Khan was quite the toast of LSA’s, with cameras whirring wherever he went and umpteen requests for selfies from fans. Fawad has an enviable knack for always looking great and although he could have dressed up more, the casual but dapper look suited him just fine.
The ‘Best Actor Satellite’ for Zindagi Gulzar Hai was dressed in a Paul Smith jacket, Ermenegildo Zegna shirt, Jeans by Diesel and D&G shoes. Topped off with that silver award in his hand and his now famous grin, he was a cinch for our ‘Best Dressed’ list.
