It's Pakistani style and entertainment's biggest night and the winners are out

Punjab Nahi Jaungi or Na Maloom Afraad? Saba Qamar or Sajal Aly?

These were the questions swirling in our minds as we awaited the results of Lux Style Awards 2018.

The awards took place at Lahore's Expo Centre last night and saw a big attendance at a ceremony that was intended to be muted yet meaningful. Sahir Ali Bagga sang a qawwali, Frieha Altaf's #MeinBhi campaign for human rights was launched and the show ended with a powerful orchestral performance that was 76 musicians strong. But we'll leave those highlights for later.

Here's who won at LSA 2018 (winners are highlighted in bold):


Punjab Nahi Jaungi swept the film category by bagging four of five major awards, with Mahira Khan stealing away Best Actress for Verna. The question of everyone's mind's, though: Did she deserve it?
