The Hum Style Awards red carpet was a lesson on what NOT to wear

This year, we were hard pressed to find a single outfit we liked.
Updated 07 Jul, 2021

The Hum Style Awards were held on Sunday and we'll just say it — this year's red carpet looks were a lesson in fashion mistakes 101.

The Hum Style Awards are annual accolades attended by stars from the television, fashion and music industries of Pakistan, and while celebrities are meant to wear outfits that show the very best that Pakistani fashion has to offer, the looks they offered this time around were anything but impressive.

Here are the celebrity outfits that left a lot to be desired.

Sonya Hussyn's neon green suit

What we didn't like: Hussyn's suit seems to be poorly fitted, which is a fashion faux pas when it comes to suits that are not specifically designed to be baggy. Her suit was made by MAHGUL.

Omair Rana's light blue suit

What we didn't like: While we can forgive the unremarkable colour palette, we can't get over the clumsy fitting of the blazer. Again, immaculately fitted suits are key. Rana's suit was made by Zeitgeist.

Aima Baig's off shoulder gown

What we didn't like: Baig's outfit feels less like a formal gown and more a beach dress, mainly because of the choice of fabric. Those puffy sleeves did NOT go well with the dress either. Also a word to the wise: iron out those creases!

Ali Rehman's tuxedo suit

What we didn't like: While we're all for tuxedo looks on men, Rehman seems rather awkward in his outfit mainly because of its clumsy fit. Those trousers aren't doing anything for the look either.

Alizeh Shah's strapless black gown

What we didn't like: This one had a lot of potential but the bodice was not designed well for Shah's figure. If the waistline had been lowered, it would have been far more flattering. The memes are pouring in for this one folks, and we kind of see the point. In some videos, there were flashes of white tulle underneath her dress (an underskirt perhaps?) and we aren't sure if it was intentional. If it was, it didn't work at all and if it wasn't, someone please dye her underskirts black!

Uzair Jaswal's street style suit

What we didn't like: The reverse stitching on one side of Jaswal's blazer? Yeah we're gonna take a pass on that for our next formal suit inspiration. The suit was designed by Mohtaram.

Ali Xeeshan's 'King of the Hill' suit

What we didn't like: Xeeshan is unconventional when it comes to his outfits and while we have appreciated his out-of-the box designs in the past, we can't digest that polka dotted bathrobe he is donning underneath the cape.

Amar Khan's silver column dress

What we didn't like: This outfit was not flattering at all. The sleeves, the fit, the bodice — nothing worked for us.

If we were forced to choose from this deeply uninspiring series of offerings, the only outfit we liked was what 21-year-old model Maha Tahirani wore.

Maha Tahirani's pink gown

What we liked: The colour, design and the overall fit complement Tahirani's attractive features. Plus that gorgeous curly up-do does well for the overall look. Her dress was by Sana Safinaz.
