Syra Shehroz (previously Syra Yousuf,) who started her career as a VJ on MTV Pakistan, has her way with whatever she sets her mind to — be it hosting shows, modelling or acting. The 20-something star rose to fame for her chiselled features and girl-next-door looks.
A known face in the Pakistani television industry, Syra has done over 50 television commercials, apart from working in dramas including Mera Naseeb, Mohabbat Rooth Jaye Toh, Bilqees Kaur, Tanhaiyan Naye Silsilay and Coke Kahani.
Over the course of her career, Syra has often changed her hairstyle — from a sharp fringe to side-swept bangs and finally a bob. But we must say that she looked adorable in whatever look she’s pulled off. Talking about her style philosophy, the actor said, “My style philosophy is that one should not just wear their clothes, but should carry themselves with confidence.”
The VJ-turned-actor likes to wear soft, pastel colours and is not a great fan of sparkly clothes. “I love bling, but then it doesn’t complement every occasion. So I like to pair it with something lighter.” Even on her wedding, she opted for a minimalistic look and did not deck herself up with jewellery and make-up. She was recently also spotted at Saba Pervez’s mehendi rocking a beautiful sari in orange and green.
Syra always dresses keeping in line with current trends and also likes accessorising her outfits. “My favourite accessory would be my shades. I also love my Forever21 bubblegum pink skinnies,” she says.
