It’s the same feeling every year. Whenever the Lux Style Awards (LSA) conclude following the much hype it had created post announcing the nominees (though the hype does get better of the jurors and the organiser for which the excitement begins quite early), there is a rush and optimism for all those who don’t win that year as well as all those who don’t perform that year. Yes, they all await the next year’s LSAs with eagerness and promises to themselves. These promises are not just made by the ones who didn’t perform or didn’t win, but even the organisers, the choreographers, the sponsors and the journalists to deliver more whole-heartedly the next year. Such is the platform. Some say the LSAs are the Oscars of Pakistan, but let’s not believe it. For it’s like what Unilever External Communications Manager Fareshte Aslam said earlier while talking to Daily Times that “nowhere does it happen in the world that the fashion, music, TV and film fraternities get together to honour the deserving talents”. We can’t quite agree more. For the LSAs indeed, are bigger than the Oscars in Pakistan. They remain the only platform to honour and present all talented icons of TV, fashion, music and film in a way they should be. Not forgetting the convenient diversion all our countrymen need in times of political turmoil and economic crises.

Being a source of pride, entertainment and honour, the 12th LSAs were held in Lahore on Thursday night. The red carpet, which experienced the attendance of the who’s who of entertainment and fashion industry (Saima Azhar absolutely stole our heart with her stunning appearance on the red carpet. We at Daily Times give her the best dressed female celebrity on the LSA red carpet also Waleed Khalid well-suited in HSY was best dressed male celebrity on the red carpet) gave way to an exciting activity session carried out by Unilever where Magnum ice cream was presented to all the guests with a model of a luxury car where they could have their photos taken and enjoy the delicious dessert. Lipton contributed as well by serving tea to the guests. Nice way to cater to the Lahori crowd, that indulges in food and dessert well. We absolutely loved it! Talk about genius enterprising.

The performances featuring Lollywood, TV and music icons were aplenty, however Atif Aslam and Humaima Malik stole the show for us. We absolutely loved Humaima’s dance sequence on the legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s tracks. Gave all the other film divas sleepless nights we’re sure. The awards ended with Atif’s hit Bollywood tracks and we couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful conclusion, however the sound system could have been improved.
