This or that? More Power to Power Dressing

Published: September 21, 2015

KARACHI: Their trendy wardrobes are the envy of women everywhere. Nadia Hussain and Mahira Khan pulled off some seriously fashion-forward ensembles as they attended the launch ceremony of Pakistan Super League on Sunday. Putting guys to shame, the supermodel and actor cut stylish figures in tailored two-piece suits.

Mahira Khan

Hair and make-up

The Bin Roye star wore her glossy brunette locks softly tousled around her face, which had been enhanced with a natural make-up palette featuring marsala-hued lips, statement-making brows and a gentle contour. Mahira paired her outlandish style with a modest toned-down look. We were awestruck.

Channelling the feminine-meets-masculine aesthetic, the Raees star donned a relaxed pinstripe trouser suit, teamed with a hassle-free white shirt. We love this look on Mahira, especially the blasé white shirt and baggy slacks. She exhibited how ladies can make a perfect addition to their work-wear wardrobes by adding an edge to tailoring by exuding nonchalant appeal.


Shunning bold prints and contrasting textures, Mahira remained true to her meekly-chic style and adorned mismatched earrings. The inequitable bling amplified the casual flair of her monochromatic ensemble. Sharpening up her off-the-cuff look, she opted for pointy-toe stilettos and a subtle smile.

Nadia Hussain

Hair and make-up

Pulling all the stops in a fiery bold pout and well-defined make-up, Nadia kept her look neat and straightforward. Her heavily-lined eyes and chiseled bone structure gave her that edge of elegance and femininity that welded well with her androgynous look. The diva didn’t let her mane get into the way and styled it back in a tousled hair-do. We wish she went all-out diva on us by letting her locks free.

Dressed to kill, the supermodel-businesswoman sported a flattering black suit, which she matched with a crisp low-cut white blouse. Defying her years, the mother of four certainly looked delish in the form-fitting outfit. Her close-fitting blazer and tapered dress pants that sat low on her waist proved that Nadia has never been one to shy away from a look that pushes boundaries.


The star boasted her unique sense of fashion by going accessory free and slaying the anti-glitz style. Blinging up with just a couple of plush rings, the model capped up her gutsy look with a pair of jet peep-toe pumps and a neat French manicure.
