This Pakistani designer dressed Kareena Kapoor for her first post-baby shoot

Kareena Kapoor sure seems to like Pakistani fashion.

She was the face of Faraz Manan lawn for a long time (and still shows up to support Faraz's achievements). Now, she's wearing Tena Durrani for her comeback shoot in Asiana Dubai magazine.

Tena designed a bespoke three-piece collection for the shoot, which took place aboard a luxury yacht in Dubai. And does Kareena look stunning or what?

In a chat with Images, Tena explained that she wanted Kareena's look to be distinct from each other.

The designer said, "For the first outfit [above], we did an ethereal white number by pairing an embellished white lehnga with a sheer ruffled button down to give a glamorous summer resort vibe to our otherwise traditional bridal lehnga."

"The second outfit was a stunning crimson velvet cape and lehnga which had a very modern maharani appeal to it," Tena shared.

"The last outfit was our most coveted bridal lehnga called Naurattan. We paired it with the Naurattan jacket, which Kareena wore to perfection," she concluded.

Craving a closer look at the outfits? "These outfits are are on display at our bridal studio in Karachi. Everyone is more than welcome to come have a look at them," Tena offers.

Elaborating on the how she got the opportunity to dress Kareena, Tena shared, "We've been meaning to strengthen our ties with partners globally and what better way to do it than with the leading Asiana wedding magazine based in the U.K. It was through an extensive collaboration between the relevant parties that we were able to sign Kareena for her first photoshoot after the birth of her son. Needless to say, there was a lot of planning and coordination that went into making sure the shoot ran smoothly."

"Kareena is a superstar. It was an absolute pleasure working with her," says Tena. Together, the duo make a strong case of Pak-India dosti — we need more of these beautiful collaborations!

Wow. Simply marvelous. Talented duo.

The designer Tena Durrani looks more beautiful than Kareena. No one follows Kareena and her fashion, at least no one in India.

@Manjeet it's better to say nothing to be sarcastic!

@Amit Mishra Please pull yourself out from under the rock where you've been living. Thank you.

So what...Kareena is a small actress in india not an international superstar....

Anadil May 17, 2017 04:49am

Tena's designs are great as samples but order doesn't come out anything like the sample hanging. Reason being that the sample is done by the great master tailor and the simple client's orde is stitched by those new extras sitting and following just some initial instructions given by the master tailor. Sad!

@Amit Mishra so true. Kareena is trying her best to acquire a middle eastern citizenship for her and her Taimoor .

Proud to be pakistani who dress indians..way to go. Congrats on great collaboration

Why such negative comments about such a beautiful , accomplished actress. I just think photography could have been much better. The clothes and the entire look just doesnt gel in with the yatch and the backdrop.

Ratti May 21, 2017 01:37am

@REAL_M.EMAD you must be kidding

A. Khan May 21, 2017 07:27pm

@REAL_M.EMAD - dont you think Bengal GQ would be a bit biased and interested more in selling their magazine ?

Nonu May 23, 2017 03:09pm

@A. Khan But Bengali women are beautiful.
