KARACHI-Hum Style Awards is a night filled with exuberance, euphoria, magic and flamboyance of glitz, glamour and style. It has always been a star-studded affair because of their penchant for bringing some of the biggest Pakistani celebrities together under one roof.
This year’s award ceremony took place at the Expo Centre and the night was marked with some memorable moments. Needless to say our actors left fashion aficionados impressed with their sartorial choices.
From the showbiz industries A-listers to fashion and sports icons, the red carpet was dazzled with some of the biggest names followed by few well-choreographed sizzling performances, one after another.
Once the show began, the audience was ready for great time. Sadly, due to several technical glitches, the show didn’t run as smoothly as expected.
This year HSA tried something unprecedented. HSA gave chance to four young actors – Ahmed Ali Akhbar, Asim Azhar, Syra Shahroz and Ainy Jaffri – to host the film industry’s highest honours. But sadly, all of them badly failed to bring the wow factor in the show.
The script was very poor and nobody could be seen laughing on hosts’ jokes.
Talking to this scribe, Ramsha Azmat, who had came from London to attend the show said, “I came all the way from London considering that it would be that much good as it was in Canada. But I am really disappointed. Look at the hosts they don’t even know how to pull the show. I must say HUM could have told Ahmed Ali Butt to host the show at least he is far better than everyone in Pakistan’s film industry. Only few dance performances throughout the night were well choreographed and entertaining,” she said.
The first round of categories to be presented comprised the Popular (Viewers’ Choice Awards) starting with Fashion: Best Model Female, which was presented by Ayesha Omar and Shoaib Akhtar to Anum Malik whereas the best male model award was given to Aimen Khan.
The second category was of Best Hair & Makeup artiste and the award was given to Qasim Liaquat.
The next segment began with an embracing technical glitch, the music suddenly stopped during the performance of Amna Ilyas, who was about to enter the stage in great style. It is only for the readers as when the people will see the awards after editing it would be the most perfect style.
After this dance took off the next award was presented by Shehzad Noor and Tapu Javeri for the best fashion photographer and the award went to MHM.
