Hi all, I had a hard time finding my top five fashion looks, as I like so many and I kept changing my mind! Enjoy x
1. Subyasaachi Anarkali
Subyasaachi is well known for his rich, classic looking styles, and this one is no different. The antique, dull-gold colours of this anarkali appeals to me because of how luxurious and classic it makes the outfit look. This would make a great mehndi outfit for a bride. What I love is how wearable this outfit is as well, it was designed a few years ago yet still would fit in with today's fashion, it's modest and is overdone in terms of style or detail. I also like how the model's toned down hair, make-up and even flat shoes compliment the outfit completely, showing how it's such an effortless outfit.
2. The Bunto/Bina Bride
I love love LOVE this combination of two of my favourite Pakistani (fashion) artists - Bina Khan the make up artist and Bunto Kazmi's the bridal designer - on this very beautiful bride. This bride looks so regal, serene and absolutely stunning in rich colours and subtle, yet striking make-up. I'm sure I'm not alone is being enamoured with Bunto Kazmi's work, and her signature rich work and intricate design can certainly be seen here, while Bina Khan's natural-looking make up emphasises the bride's natural beauty. You know when you see a bride's picture and you think 'that's the look for me', and hope you'll look like that, ? This was the one for me, I love everything about the this bride, right down to the pearl necklace detail :)
3. Bipasha's Smouldering Eyeliner

For Bollywood, this is actually not a very complicated look, and Bipasha certainly pulls it off well. Her eye make-up is immaculately done here, with the emphasis being on smouldering, black eyeliner. Paired with nude lipstick, Bipasha glows in a smokey-eyed look after my own heart.
4. Tammana's Maxi Dress
Maxi dresses have always been a yes for me, partly because they look modest and go well with my hijab, and partly because they feel so nice and swishy when you walk in them :) This dress fits my profile quite suitably, its nice and swishy and it looks so pretty because of all the work on the bodice of the dress. I don't think many people can pull off white dresses, but on Tollywood actress Tammana it looks very elegant, and very feminine. It's certainly something I have my eye on, as I'd love to wear something similar to this.
5. Nilofer Shahid's White Bridal Gown
I've always been a red wedding dress girl, rather than classic white wedding dresses. So this showstopping number is certainly an eye-opener in terms of mixing traditional designs with white, dazzling wedding dresses, and changing the idea of having a white wedding dress. I've seen a few imitations of this dress, but none of them have come close to this beautiful original, and it only goes to show how unique it is. I like how flattering the shape of this dress is, and how classic it looks, which can be tailored to suit almost any occasion, be it wedding, valima, reception, registry and so on!
Thank you Curly Fry! I love that Bina Khan Bride, right down to that gorgeous pearl set, I think I have a new favourite on my own list!
