Designer Somaya Adnan of the brand Ayesha-Somaya and fashion blogger Anber Javed were recently spotted at the launch of nail colour brand Essie at Olivetto, Karachi. The two ladies were a perfect picture of pure elegance and sophistication. Here is a breakdown of what they wore and who stole the show:

Anber Javed

Hair and make-up

Anber kept it subtle and stylish in a half-tied hairdo leaving the ends slightly curled. While we love the simple look, a little volume on the crown would have been much appreciated. The blogger looks fresh with that peachy pink blush, well-defined cat eyes and pale pink lips. The coral shade on her nails is uber chic. One of those nails was painted white; should we watch out for a new trend, Anber? 


Her mustard-coloured maxi dress cinched at the waist with a stylish metallic skinny belt is a breath of fresh air. This casual meets semi-formal ensemble was definitely an ideal pick for the funky, colourful evening. 

Accessories & shoes

We love how Anber is trying to add a bit of funk to her overall look with the multi-coloured necklace. However, it seems more like something a four-year-old would wear at her birthday party. A chunky gold necklace would have definitely been a better option. We simply adore the crisp white clutch with gold detailing and the twisted strappy gold sandals.

Hair & make-up

Somaya looks effortlessly chic in this perfectly blow-dried and layered hairdo. The designer looks surreal in her subtle, dusky pink make-up. Those well-defined eyes, slightly plum lips and gorgeous smile make her look simply flawless. 


We are assuming that Somaya is wearing one of her own beautiful creations. The designer looks like a true ethereal beauty in this nude screen-printed asymmetrical dress. The halter neckline and the slightly visible broche add oomph to the graceful ensemble. The silky fabric does complete justice to her petite figure. 

Accessories and shoes

Somaya’s faux snake-skinned copper clutch has literally put our style-o-meter on fire! The designer surely knows how to accessorise her look. Her elegant diamond studs and rings complement her classy look well. However, we are not sure if this was the right event to wear a bright orange toy watch! Those nude coloured platform heels that are sneaking out of her flowy, floor-length gown are just perfect.
