Fashions fade, style is eternal.”- Yves Saint Laurent

Should they choose to don tanng pajama with a choti kameez or embrace khuli shalwars with oversized kurtas, Pakistani divas sure know how to remain in style.

Today, we decided to pick a few divas who’ve fused fashion with individual style statements, time and again.

 

Fatima Jinnah

“Silver hair. Ghararas. Minimalist.”

Baba-e-quom Mohammad Ali Jinnahs’s beloved sister was not only his constant support system and confidante, but a strong, independent woman who chose to marry an ideology instead of a man.

 

Noor Jahan

“Diamonds. Glamorous makeup. Extravagant saris”

This vocal extravaganza was our desi Adele that not only was admired for her whimsical voice and dew-dipped eyes but also her signature messy bun, choker and a sari.

 

Nazia Hassan

“Queen of hearts. Disco diva. Rebel.”

Pakistan’s sweetheart and pop diva was one of the most prominent singer of her time, seen grooving to the retro beats with her brother. Titled “Queen of Pop”, she was the first to fully explore the genre.

 

Benazir Bhutto

“The iconic bun. Power shoulders. Shalwar Kamiz with jackets.”

The first (and only) lady prime minister of Pakistan and the first democratically elected woman head of any Muslim nation in the world, Benazir was dauntless, charismatic and the real-life mother of dragons. Her aura was unparalleled, and so were those power shoulders.

 

Marina Khan

“Androgyny. Cropped hair. 80’s style.”

TanhaiyaanDhoop Kinare and Jackson Heights: Marina Khan broke barriers by not only her acting prowess but by her androgynous style, long before it became fashionable.

 

Mahira Khan

“Beach waves. Beestung lips. Epitome of luxury”

With the whole nation crushing over Mahira Khan ever since Humsafar happened, the immensely talented actress has consistently delivered, bagging a role alongside the King Khan himself. Truly the epitome of luxury, her.

Who is your favorite Pakistani diva with a style sense you’d love to emulate?
