Style Shorts

Neon is now 

Top models like Gigi Hadid are all shadowing their eyes with neon this autumn, and wherever you look neon is lighting up the international catwalks. 
Never one to be outdone. Kim Kardashian-West has gone totally bright this season with startling limes and sublime candy pinks.
If you want to pick up something in these iridescent hues the always innovative Hussain Rehar gives you a some great options on the Studio website (click below on the pic to buy). Why sit in the shade when you can shine like a star?!

Madonna does Marrakesh

Feels like it was only a short while ago that Madonna and MTV were telling us how it felt to be touched for the very first time. But the Queen of Pop just turned 60 and she celebrated with a huge birthday bash in Marrakesh, posting multiple photos signalling the return of boho-chic. And when Madonna turns gypsy will the world not follow? Even Beyonce went boho on her birthday in September and Sonam Kapoor, the fashion princess that she is was seen favouring ethnic chic on her Insta.
Ok we understand that Ms Madonna can do OTT better than most but you might want to pick a choice item and accessorise it with a lighter hand. So a handful of chunky flamboyant jewellery, perhaps a fringed 70’s ponchos, and flowing lines with vibrant bursts of embroidery and you’re on your way!

Patriotic fashion

August is always time to be patriotic and with a new Prime Minister in Islamabad wearing a stylish sherwani to the oath-taking ceremony Pakistani fashion was Zindabad all the way!
The celebs joined in with their own stylish nationalism; Urwa Hocane wore a chand sitara kurta, Kubra Khan wore a romantic and pretty white, red and green outfit with tousled hair and jhumkas and Mehwish Hyatt wore a plain green kurta and white churidar.
At Studio our white on white chand sitara kurti from EGO was so popular it sold out fully. But do not despair – Mahin Hussain’s Pakistan flag clutch available on your website will let you be patriotic saj dhaj ke! Just click on the pic to go straight to buy it!

The bride-to-be wore yellow!

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are the “it” couple of the moment. From a Met Gala to an engagement, this is modern love all the way. At their Roka or engagement ceremony in Mumbai, the blushing bride-to-be wore a bright, summery yellow with light, romantic make-up. And who can forget Alia Bhatt's statement-making bright yellow Sabyasachi lehnga at Sonam Kapoor Ahuja's reception?
Looking for a little ochre to brighten up your summer wardrobe too? Here are a few selections from the Studio Wardrobe...and may your fairy tale come true too!
1. Dynamic three-piece flash of colour from Al Karam Studio fashioned into a ghagra kurta
2. Chapter 13 transforms canary yellow feathers into super sandals
3. Maheen Ghani Taseer fashions pale daffodil yellow organza into a romantic ensemle.
4. Asim Jofa combines sober gray and vibrant yellow for a sophisticated mix

Thin is in?

Vogue is powerful enough to determine the rise and fall of hemlines. And this August its cover showcased actor and singer Rihanna who shaved off her eyebrows in favour of finely pencilled arches. This, after several years of Cara Delevigne type thick superbrows being de rigeur for all fashionistas.
So are you going to be plucky and shave off the caterpillars too? We wouldn’t reach for the razor just yet…

 Green heads

Music sensation Dua Lipa was seen donning a green wig for her birthday. Kim Kardashian-West dyed her hair a slightly lime blonde/green (not sure how we feel about that it looks a bit weird in bright lights). And even our Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari was seen sporting colourful PTI stripes in her hair for a bit!
It may not suit everyone but green hair is the new colour for your crowning glory. Are you going to dare it?
