Mahira Khan’s dance debut, live at LSA16

mahira khan's dance
There are dancers, there are stage actors and performers who can dance and then there are actors and actresses who have never had the stage experience but are such a natural when performing that they light up the stage. Gentle, light on the foot and extremely well coordinated, Mahira Khan is most definitely the latter. She performed a spectacular finale at the Lux Style Awards on Friday night and while it was late and Mahira was nursing a foot injury, you could have been fooled into believing her agility on stage. This is one in a series of short clips we will be uploading until the LSAs are officially shown on GEO TV; I think that would be by the end...

Finding Pokemons on the LSA16 red carpet!

We were not looking for the best or worst dressed celebrities at the Lux Style Awards this year; we started looking for Pokemons once Tapu Javeri tipped us off that the Expo Centre were crawling with them. And boy did we catch them all over the place! Some were dashing and heroic, some were glamorous and sexy, some were curiously creative and others were downright unsightly. We'll leave the judgement for you! Fawad Khan Pokemon name: Arcanine This one is known for having incredibly good looks and moves as if it's flying. Fawad is now a legendary Pokemon that boasts a regal and proud appearance. We loved Fawad's choice of wardrobe - Republic by Omar Farooq as always - and he was one of the most...

LSA’16: Who’ll Wear What?

The biggest and brightest award shows are around the corner and we, at Something Haute, are all set to ask the most important question: Who’ll wear what this year? The red carpet looks for the much celebrated Lux Style Awards can swing both ways: it can either have a swoop-back pleated twill and glamorized shirtwaist (as sported by Mahira Khan last year) make headlines for best dressed or have any sorbet-shaded cocktail dress dismissed as frou-frou by style critics. Will this year’s LSAs showcase striking fashion statements that’ll woo the crowd? Or would it be boo’ed by the crowd? Perhaps only time will tell, but till then our style-radar has caught up with the frenzied wardrobe preparations for who we feel are the most...

Everything you need to know about LSA16

Okay, so maybe not everything but enough to get you excited. The country’s most credible, most consistent and most eagerly anticipated awards are just around the corner and they promise to be a big, big show. To think that a show this big could continue without controversy would be extremely naïve and so locked, stocked and ready with its share of chin-wagging, the event is ready to roll louder than ever before. Here are a couple of things you should chalk up as vital info on the program… It’s the LSAs 15th anniversary! The Lux Style Awards has the honour of being the only award show - celebrating excellence in entertainment, music and fashion in Pakistan – that has shown the consistency of...

At the trailer launch of Actor In Law

"I think I was very confident at the trailer launch of Na Maloom Afraad but now I'm just super conscious!" exclaimed Nabeel Qureshi, director of the film, as he opened the press conference. Qureshi, along with the cast and crew of Actor in Law, was gathered to release the trailer of FilmWala’s second venture exactly two years after Na Maloom Afraad. The stage was set and posters were up announcing the three lead-cast of the upcoming film Actor in Law, starring Fahad Mustafa, Mehwish Hayat and Indian veteran actor, Om Puri. "This is the first time an Indian actor has flown in to play a part in a Pakistan production," Nina, marketing head of Entertainment URDU 1 and representative of Urdu 1 pictures,...

LSA2016 is right around the corner

The Lux Style Awards nominations for excellence in 2015 were announced in an event speckled with stardust, humour and the usual rise of controversies. Mocktails did the rounds while guests – mostly this year’s nominees, judges, jury members and the media - waited for the official proceedings to begin. Grandiose LSA branding provided an apt backdrop for photo ops while the more adventurous ventured inside the ‘LSA Booth’, a space designed to make anyone inside appear to be on a magazine cover. Moving inside the main show area, a lavish round table arrangement held together an interior speckled with white floral arrangements, crystal ornamentation and an overall luxurious set up. The press conference held to announce nominations for the 15th annual...

The Shah Rukh Khan experience – Part 2

  In conversation with SRK…the father, the friend.       Three hours and thirty minutes after Shah Rukh Khan had entered the premises, apologizing for being late, did I manage to finally sit down with him for an exclusive. To his credit, he had cancelled his 9 o’ clock flight and so had more time on his hands. Our conversation, slotted for a quick ten-minutes, continued beyond the allotted time despite his publicist constantly gesturing him to cut it short. Here’s an extract of the tête-à-tête, which became deliciously informal as we moved away from harsh lights of TV cameras, and found a quiet space to speak about things closest to his heart…   Aamna Haider Isani: The way you manage to take out time for...
