There’s been a lot of drama in the past so many months, but with the 18th Lux Style Awards just in a few days, everyone’s focusing on what’s about to come…and if the rumour mills are to be believed, then what’s about to happen will be a sight for sore eyes!
Each year, the Lux Style Awards become the highlight for Pakistan’s entertainment and fashion industries by proving to be one of the biggest awards in the country, and of course, in 2019, it’s going to be no different because there’s so much on offer.
There’s a mix of performances, sizzling on-stage hosts, and a myriad of entertaining things set for the LSAs, and of course, you can bet Diva has all the insider news for you as we have donned on our investigative hats!
Here’s the lowdown…
A Tete-a-Tete with Fareshteh Aslam
Diva Online: What would you say about your experience with the LSAs this year and overall?
Fareshteh Aslam: The LUX Style Awards is the single, most exhausting event of the year. The framework is large. Four industries, performers, presenters, jury, a demanding audience, the highs the lows, the exhilaration of a win and the dejection of those who don’t win that year. I’m grateful there’s a system in place that’s audited and verified and that lets me do my principal job without fear or favour.

“I look forward to the performances, the acceptance speeches, the fabulous fashion on the red carpet,” Fareshteh told Diva. “It’s a magical night, full of surprises and there’s something for everyone. It’s going be modern, contemporary show in sync with the digital age.”
Full of surprises indeed…but what are surprises until we don’t reveal what they are, right?
