KARACHI: Pakistani designers have, slowly but surely, been making their way into the world of Bollywood lately. Whether it’s Kareena Kapoor in Faraz Manan or Ranveer Singh in Mohsin Naveed Ranjha, India’s creme de la creme seem to love clothes created by designers across the border.
Indian starlet Malaika Arora has also joined the club and donned ensembles designed by Pakistan-based Misha Lakhani and Zainab Chottani. Here’s a lowdown on the outfits she wore.
About two weeks ago, the Munni Badnaam Hui star made her way to the Dwijing Festival clad in a red hot Misha Lakhani number. She was draped in a belted sari which featured a hint of sparkle in the form of diamantés scattered across the fabric, while the pallu entailed mini tassels.
Malaika accessorised the outfit with a long, beaded necklace and a few rings. Her hair was tied up in a messy bun with a couple of hair strands left out to frame her face. Dewy skin, rosy cheeks and smokey eyes completed the look.
The Chaiyaan Chaiyaan beauty strutted out in another ensemble by a Pakistani designer yesterday. She was garbed in an off-white Zainab Chottani apparel comprising of a cropped top and wide-legged bottoms.
The heavily embellished blouse featured intricate silver work and a scalloped hem with beaded trimmings, which brought in quite a bit of movement. The trousers also had similar ornamentation on the bottom, tying together the whole look. Malaika wore her hair in loose waves with nude makeup and nothing but a couple of rings as accessories.
The designer shared a video on her official Instagram page showing Malaika thanking her for the ensemble.
