Mahira Khan has been on quite a roll with her ensembles during her visit to India. She was recently spotted in a stunning Sania Maskatiya creation that consisted of a white kurta shalwar and a heavily embellished gota vest serving as the perfect statement piece.
Immense appreciation over the fact that after her stunning appearance in Muse not only did she switch things up by going the traditional route , but also that she opted for a shalwar. Serious props to the model and the designer for bringing the shalwar back and providing hope that maybe those ever-monotonous pants need to retire for a while.
She completed her look with statement earrings (Amrapali?), gold heels and a tight bun. Classic.
One of the most extravagant parties of the season was Louis Vuitton’s dinner to celebrate the brand’s 160th anniversary via a capsule collection that features a collaboration with six creative icons, namely, Christian Louboutin, Rei Kawakubo, Cindy Sherman, Karl Lagerfeld, Frank Gehry and Marc Newson. Each maestro exhibited their own interpretation in designing the collection to honour Louis Vuitton’s big day.
The event took over the Museum of Modern Art and boasted an equally extravagant list of participants that, alongwith the stars of the show, included the likes of Nicolas Ghesquière, Anna Wintour, Karlie Kloss, Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman, Will.i.am, Sofia Coppola, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Catherine Deneuve, Jennifer Connelly, Ashley Olsen and Miranda Kerr to name a few.
Below are some extracts from the event and Karl Lagerfeld’s shoot for Harper’s Bazaar.

During her visit to India, Mahira Khan was spotted looking ethereal in a silk floral printed MUSE dress. The actress opted for side swept hair and bold red lips to finish off her look. While I find myself craving for some statement turquoise jewels, there’s no denying that she was a vision.
That stunning watercolour print and the luxurious nature of fine Italian silk proved to be the ideal combination to leave one in complete awe.
Sania Maskatiya was spotted at her store in Dolmen Mall posing alongside Khaula Jamil for the ‘K for Karachi’ exhibit.
Sania personified monotone chic in an ensemble consisting of a bicolour top (Helmut Lang??) and black ankle pants. Like Maheen Karim, Sania opted to add some highlight to her outfit via a super fun pair of Kate Spade ‘Go Taxi’ pumps providing just the right amount of quirk to the minimal nature of her outfit. She completed her look with a pair of Dior Tribal earrings.
Designer Maheen Karim channeled understated chic at the House of Lux event in a crisp black blazer, gold sequinned top and black ankle pants. What I find most intriguing about this look is her choice of footwear. Maheen chose to add some fun to her outfit via some serious statement-making Jimmy Choo ‘Mantle’ sandals.
The heels that are embellished from tip to toe with shimmering jewels and sculptural metallic details were the perfect compliment to an otherwise simple outfit. While I would’ve opted for a simpler clutch, Maheen chose a black Valentino Rockstud flap clutch to complete her look and allow her heels to be the center of focus.
Serving as an escape from the humdrum of usual footwear seen on the red carpet, this was certainly a welcome change.
P.S. Am I the only one with an urge to swap Maha’s clutch with Maheen’s?
Maha Burney was spotted at the House of LUX event looking absolutely ethereal in a knotted dress by All Saints. Trusting Maha to accentuate her outfits with statement accessories; she wore a stunning pair of earrings that she purchased from a boutique at Siam Paragon, Bangkok. The earrings proved to be the perfect compliment to the minimalist nature of her dress.
Maha further opted for a subtle YSL suede tassel clutch and nude Christian Louboutin Lady peeps to keep those earrings in the spotlight!
Karl Lagerfeld had already stated his beloved cat, namely, Choupette to be the most famous cat in the world. When it comes to the world of fashion, Choupette shall acquire more fashionable fame despite having its very own Twitter and Instagram accounts.
The much adored feline shall be pairing up with beauty giant Shu Uemura for “The Shupette by Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura” collection which will be unveiled later this fall. The collection shall feature super fun beauty products.
And if you think it ends there, think again.
Karl takes it up a notch with his quirky anthem and designs an entire capsule collection for his beloved cat. The collection comprises of tops, bags, shoes and accessories. Check out some of the fun creations below.
I have to give a shout out to ‘Subcontinent’ for portraying such a magnificent blend of past and present aesthetics in their furniture. While discussing her creations, Sonia Rehman Qureshi, the brainchild behind the furniture label says,
“They are the interpretation of stories as they continue their journey from generation to generation telling stories old and new for many years to come.”
I couldn’t help but nod because the juxtaposition between vintage structures and modern upholstery ranging from leather to pony hair alongside contemporary motifs is surprisingly smooth. The finishing and enameling further carries the pieces to perfection and I’m in complete awe of that beautiful Tiffany Blue upholstery.
Incase you’re seeking to view the masterpieces, they are currently being exhibited at Frere Hall from 26th – 28th Sept from 11am – 9pm.
The event was managed by Catwalk Event Management & Productions.
