Some of our favourite looks from the Lux Style Awards 2021 red carpet

We weren't spoiled for choice at this year's LSAs but there were some looks that stood out.
10 Oct, 2021

The Lux Style Awards were held Saturday night but what we were looking most forward to was the red carpet. Unfortunately, we weren't exactly spoiled for choice when it came to amazing outfits.

Most of the outfits we saw were pretty boring if we're going to be completely honest, but there were some that stood out.

The one outfit we fell in love with instantly was model Mushk Kaleem's gorgeous hot pink Sana Safinaz number.

This dress was everything. The colour of the dress, its flounces, its sheer size, the sleek bun and minimal makeup paired with it — we loved it all. Let this be a lesson to all our celebrities walking the red carpet — when in doubt go for a dramatic dress that makes you look like a Barbie doll.

Another outfit we instantly loved was model Nimra Jacob's sleek Kamiar Rokni dress.

The outfit reminded us of what Kate Hudson wore in How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days and we loved it. The sleek fit, the colour, the trail and the cowl neck give off Grecian vibes and we're here for it.

Less iconic but still gorgeous was Aima Baig's slim fitted black dress.

We don't know who the high-necked number was by but Baig certainly made it work. With minimal silver embroidery, the dress made greater use of the wearer's own silhouette than any embellishments.

But these three dresses were all quite minimalistic and we needed drama (though Kaleem's dress was very dramatic) so of course we looked to designer Ali Xeeshan.

When it comes to award shows there is something we should all remember — where there is Ali Xeeshan, there is a cape. His white outfit with silver sequins brought the oomph we were looking for and was a vast improvement over his bathrobe inspired look at the Hum Style Awards earlier this year. Though the outfit was rather minimalist by Ali Xeeshan's standards, it certainly stood out amongst the sea of black suits and jackets worn by the men attending the LSAs.

There were two other looks that we loved that weren't from the red carpet and both were by Mehwish Hayat. The first was the maroon sequined number she wore for her dance performance. The one-shoulder, floor-length dress certainly stood out on stage.

But when it comes to the wow factor, nothing can beat this outfit.

Reminiscent of the work of high-end international designers, the slim fitted dress featured gold beadwork over nude coloured fabric, making it seem as if the embroidery was on her skin. The shoulders over the high neck, shoulders and upper arms, reminding us a bit of an epaulette (the fringe on the shoulders of some military uniforms).

We were hoping for more from the LSAs, given that they are style awards after all. What did you think of the looks at the award show?

Is Desi no more a red-carpet style? Why must one b wearing western, off shoulder/one shoulder fitted western gowns to be considered stylish?

Please tell me which part of these dresses represent our culture or religion?? Why we are so keen to compete with West in this race while we don't accept any of the good practices from West but quick to accept the worst.

@Haroon khan Corona has nothing to do with the way women dress, if that was the case countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia should've been safe from Covid19. But I do agree that women look very elegant and graceful in our traditional clothes, as opposed to these gowns which are any eyesore.

Why bring religion in everything and everywhere. Religion should be personal connection with the supreme. Let everyone have freedom to choose how to live!

Love the style and glad Pakistan can compete on a global stage. We need to promote our entertainment and media industry more. Far too much misery in this country and the comments section. Please keep religion a private matter. Well done to the fashion and entertainment field for all the success last year.

Amazing how Riz Ahmed’s wife chose to wear something with a desi vibe on a REAL Red Carpet event, and these people choose to do the opposite. There’s so much one can do with Pakistani fashion—surely these celebrities can represent their own culture with a bit more class and still look stunning….like Riz Ahmed’s wife.

None of the dresses shown here are practical, except that of Baig, which is slightly outside the race for floor-sweeping dresses.
