12th LUX STYLE AWARDS, 2013 – Drought Continues in Female Modeling World

16 Comments

The nominations have been announced of the most anticipated Showbiz event of Pakistan, Lux Style Awards. 22 categories in all including Music, TV and TV (this is for the endless love for Terrestrial categories for ATV and PTV, shows that nobody watches or talks about) and ofcourse our favorite Fashion.

The nine categories (whopping 41%) dedicated to Fashion alongwith the nominees are:

LUX ALL

The Fashion awards definitely are the most exciting after the Satellite TV awards and competition in both categories is INTENSE.

Now to few of the observations..

Surprised … Ayaz Anis Khan is not nominated for best Fashion photographer category

Sad Category .. Best Menswear Designer category is just like Film categories. Must be difficult for the jury to  fill up the space for 5 nominees. We hardly saw much from some of the designers nominated in the category. Very excited though for 13th Lux, where we  might probably see some serious competition.

Depressing .. Its a drought of new female models in Pakistan and past three years nominations of Lux style awards is “THE” indicator. Include this year Cybil, Mehreen Syed and Rabia butt have been nominated for 4 consecutive years, Ayyan for 3 consecutive and Amna Ilyas enters into her 2nd consecutive nomination. Oh and the models nominated this year are ditto the previous year. Not that the nominated models are just amazing .. its depressing to see that there is no new competition.

  2. Best Model, Abbas Jafri. Good Luck AJ!!! 🙂

  3. Best model (male): i see no other contender for the award other than Abbas Jafri! He deserves it 🙂 THE BEST (y)

  4. Mehreen Syed nd Abbas jafriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

  5. abbas jaafri..this man is a total win, im betting on him 😉

  6. Best Model (Male): Abbas jafri, he deserves it!

  7. best male model d one and only abbas jaffri

  8. My two cents:

    1. Jahan-e-Khalid has done far more diverse work than AJ this year. If the awards are nothing like elections 2013, Jahan should win. Nothing against AJ but his look and work has gotten very very repetitive.

    2. Anyone other than Azeem Sani should win the best fashion photographer category. While his work has been getting a lot of publicity these days, it is HARDLY fashion savy. Plain back drops, same models looking same over and over again. Again, if the awards are judged on creativity, he would not win.

  9. well the film industry in pakistan has gone to the dogs. i dunno where the television is headed. that leaves fashion
