Lux Style Awards 2011 In Review

Last updated:

Glamour, Style and Creativity are things admired everywhere. What about ‘Fashion’? Although most Pakistani societies may not seem to appreciate the idea of Fashion but what I am experiencing is the eruption of Fashion blended with individuality found nowhere but only in Pakistani Fashion Industry. Moreover Pakistani television drama and entertainment media have win over hearts with such excellence in just few years. Despite the hard circumstances and country’s deteriorating state, entertainers never lost heart and continued to produce masterpieces of acting and styling. Talented Pakistan never faded away. All this needed was a little spark of appreciation and declaration of titles. And Lux Style Awards (LSAs) took the chance and fired-up the Industry by appreciating every part of it and starting the awards ceremony thread in 2002. I have never been appreciable towards Fashion and Glamour in Pakistan. In fact I never knew that our people are that much talented until I saw the sparkling night of Lux Style awards ceremony on 17 September,2011.

Beautiful faces like Aaminah Haque, Ayan Ali, Mahira Khan, Aamina Sheikh, Meera Mathira and the most feminist spice Bushra Ansari delighted the soul completely. One after and other event the night was getting hot and smashing. Night began with National Anthem then beautiful and attractive Mahira Khan (BOL featured film actress) with her partner VJ Faizan Haque hosted the events afterwards. No doubt the Lux Style Award’s organizers illustrated the script very effectively. The presence of Chaudhry Brothers exploded the night in blasts. When Chaudhry Mustafa and Murtaza showed up. After that, one couldn’t resists the hilarious performance of Sahir Lodhi, he mimicked the Bollywood superstar Sharukh Khan. One of the graceful traditions of Lux Style awards is to pay tribute to the Gods of the entertainment Industry.
This year Mr. Moin Akhtar was chosen to pay tribute to. He left the world recently but cannot left the entertainment Industry ever. The Organizers planned to present the Lifetime Achievement Award in Fashion to Samina Ibrahim. Another winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award by Unilever’s Chairman was Mehnaz. She performed on five tracks also. Dazzling performances shaked the stage when dances were performed by HSY, Meera, Ahsan Khan, Mathira, Aaminah Sheikh and Mohib Mirza. Including Meera and Ahsan Khan dancing on ‘Main Hoti Ek Morni’, Mirza and Sheikh performing on “Tere Bin Mera Jevan” and Ahsan and Mathira on “Waada Karo Sajna”. Mathira was sizzling and Pappu Samarat’s choreography just didn’t let the audience took the eye off of her. His choreography definitely caught the audience’s attention. How can I forget the moves of the unforgettable Reema burning up the stage with her dance partner, extraordinary talented Stylist, Hassan Sheryar Yasin (HSY)? The track they grooved on was taken from Reema’s new Movie ‘Love main Gumm’ directed by her. Another interesting and noticeable event was the presentation of the Fashion designer’s work at the night. I have never seen this before but whoever had the idea it was amazing and unique.

Lux Style Award’s organizers worked with passion, no doubt. Three designers were invited to exhibit their designs. First there was the crimson collection by Ali Xeeshan. Xeeshan’s collection of flowing gowns was exciting as always and masked faces of the models were blowing viewer’s minds. Sana Safinaz collection was also colorful but not so trendy. The one I enjoyed and was totally got lost into was Deepak Parwani’s bridal collection, so royal and classy and the track behind just took me into the air, “Naina De Akhay”. It seemed Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan wasn’t absent. Now let’s talk about the nominees and winners. Bushra Ansari took the Best TV Actress (Satellite) award for his own written comedy serial“Dolly ki Ayegi Baraat” (GEO) but I think Samia Mumtaz was deserving this category, her acted character was so touchy and mature in “Meri Zaat Zara Benishan” (GEO). Bushra Ansari has been appreciated for so many years now there should be chance of achievement for other actresses too. The nominees for Best Actor male (Satallite) were Fahad Mustafa (ARY) for Haal-e-Dil , Faisal Qureshi (GEO) for Meri Zaat Zara Benishan, Fawad Khan (HUM) for Dastaan, Sajid Hasan (GEO) for Thori Si Wafa Chahiye and Shahood Alvi (GEO) for Bol Meri Machli. When my favorite, Faisal Quesrehi was announced the Best Actor award my soul was released. He was so promising in the serial “Meri Zaat Zara Benishan”(GEO). Every episode I watched I always recollected that he deserves an award for this performance. And that became true at last. The second thought that always hit my mind was that I always credit the actors what about the directors who give the essence to every emotion I get touched by. Mehreen Jabbar for Daam(ARY) and Haseeb Hassan for Bol Meri Machli (GEO) was also nominated for Best Director’s category. But who won this award unexpectedly? It was Haissam Husain for Daastan (HUM). I was so certain about Mehreen Jabbar as the serial Daam (ARY) was so real to the senses. Best TV Serial (Satellite) was awarded to ‘Bol Meri Machli ‘well deserved, as it was indeed the best serial running with so many promising stars together that no one can deny the performance of each of them. I was again trapped in anxiety when the nominations for Best Writer were announced. Everyone admitted that Vasay Chaudhry’s & Bushra Ansari’s comedy serial ‘Dolly Ki Ayegi Baraat’ (GEO) was very well written. But no doubt that this award was totally fair for Umera Ahmed for “Meri Zaat Zara Benishan” what a profound story and script.

Fashion Stylist’s awards were not so predictable though. A new trend to give Most Stylish Sports-person award is here now also, Aisamul Haq was awarded this award. Hassan Sheryar was looking so dashing that he grabbed the award for Best Dressed male on the Red Carpet. Although Ammar Belal was dressed in powerful Black Tuxedo but HSY took the breath this time. Let’s not forget Music. Many of my favorite bands were nominated, but Mauj won the Best Artist Award. I was disappointed because Kaavish for Gunkali (Fire Records) was more deserving for this category. Reema still invade so many hearts. She was awarded LSA Beauty Icon Award.
