Travelling with Tapu

By Aamna Haider Isani   Fashion photographer, RJ in the Dark Room, academic and overall persona grata, Tapu Javeri also turned out to be quite an ‘attractive’ travel companion on our recent trip to Dubai. Here’s what he attracted…   “Oh my God, are you Brandon?” a young girl with an American accent gushed, as we waited for our boarding passes at the Emirates counter at the Karachi Airport. Tapu, Fareshteh (my friend and much-needed Encyclopedia on all things SRK) and I were travelling to Dubai as I had to interview Shah Rukh Khan, on a promotional trip for Fan, and Tapu was to do the needful visual coverage.

Most fashion journalists ARE the best dressed people around!

Muniba, in a Monsoon LBD, was undoubtedly Best Dressed that day. So I am on a roll here but  have to drag you all back to Pakistan Fashion Week 3 and the Zong Award for Best Dressed (lady and gentleman) on the red carpet. Two judges were appointed each day and on Day 1, the award went to Muniba Kamal (Editor Instep) and Declan Walsh (who, wearing jeans and a work shirt joked that the award was rigged). Both journalists, Walsh does qualify as good looking and Muniba is both good looking and fashionably well dressed. Hani Taha wearing Shehla Chatoor. There's just something about intelligent women that makes them automatically attractive. And like it...
