Singer Momina Mustehsan showed up on the red carpet at Pakistan International Screen Awards (PISA) 2020 in Dubai, but it was her mustard-coloured ensemble that got all of Twitter talking over the weekend!
The Baari songstress dyed her signature red hair completely blonde, which she previously revealed at the Hum Style Awards paired with a red dress.
However, this time around at PISA, Mustehsan matched the colour of her yellow-based hair with an off-the shoulder gown, undoubtedly a bold choice.
Many took to Twitter to criticise the star for the interesting shade, comparing her to foods such as haldi, corn, mustard and egg yolks.
Thanks for telling, I thought it was an egg yolk. https://t.co/8oGSDlKz20

However, fans also defended Mustehsan, taking to the social media platform to compare her to Gossip Girl star Blake Lively. “I like it. She looks exceedingly good. Looks like Blake Lively. All of you sit down,” one user commented.

Many were quick to point out that the star also donned the same outfit as Mahira Khan, with her own ‘spin.’

Others just outright told trolls off for ‘bullying’ Mustehsan. “Please stop bullying Momina Mustehsan. Half of Pakistan’s society is peroxide blonde.. She’s just a girl. Not cool,” one user wrote.

Another wrote, “Only on Twitter people can defend others rights to wear whatever they want and at the same time make fun of Momina for her choice.”
