Haute and Sassy; The phenomenal fashion coach behind your favorite celebrities



Have you ever wondered how a random model or an actor instantly gets such a swanky fashion uplift? It is all because of their stylists who put their whole heart to make a look razzle-dazzle and exactly on point.
One such name that all of us are very well aware of is Ania Fawad. From her exquisite dress sense to fashion knowledge, everything keeps us in complete awe with each look she creates.
We got a chance to talk to this bundle of style and class, and that’s what we got to know.

How did it all start? How did a blogger become a well known celebrity stylist?
When I had first started blogging, there were only a handful of Pakistani bloggers on the scene. But a couple years into it, everyone had decided to become a blogger. I became bored of it and wanted to grow. That’s when I stepped into celebrity styling… since there were hardly any stylists in Pakistan at the time. I didn’t do it to become well known, I still don’t think I’m that well known to be honest, I just knew I wanted to do more with my talent and not be another sheep in the crowd.

Everybody has low points at the start of their career, tell us yours? How many years did it take you to reach to this level?
I’ve been styling for 3 years now. I can not really say I’ve struggled a lot because I was lucky enough to get project after project. But the way I see it, the lowest point in your career is when you’re at your highest… because where do you go from there? Right now, I feel like I’ve worked with everyone I wanted to work with. I’ve done all I wanted to do with styling. And it’s time to grow again.

Who motivated you to be a stylist?
I’m a huge Bollywood fan, and I would follow the stylists in their film industry and wish we had better ones in ours.

Who was your first client?
Mawra Hocane

What was your biggest break in terms of styling a star celebrity?
Sadaf Kanwal for Hum Style Awards. That choker I created got a lot of attention. And Maya Ali for Teefa, that was a fantastic first project with her.

How is Ania in her real life?
Basic. Likes to stay home. Eats Taco Bell. Watches old Bollywood movies on Netflix.

Which one is your favorite celebrity to style?
I always enjoy styling all of them but right now it’s Maya Ali.

Your fashion inspiration?
I take a lot of my inspo from social media stars I follow. I also like the Hadid sisters and Camila Coelho’s style.

Which celebrity you think doesn’t need a stylist?
Everyone needs a little help from time to time.

How do you manage to do such an amazing job considering that such influential people come to you for styling? Does this intimidate you?
I was only intimidated while I was styling for the first time. But after that, not so much. I treat the stars like friends. It becomes easier.

What do you think is the most important trait needed to be a stylist?
Stay true to your vision, do your homework and have thick skin for criticism. The internet can be savage.

In your opinion, What do these new stylists lack?
Every other person thinks they are a stylist these days. I wish people understood there’s an art to this, you have to put in actual work and research.

We have seen you dressed up all the time, but what is your comfort dress?
I’m in tracks and tees when I’m not dressed up.

If you could choose one celebrity to style for the rest of your life, who would it be?
Maya. We work well together.

Tell us about your next big projects other than styling?
You know what they say… never share your love life, your income or your next move!

Zubab Rana- The fashionista with an unmatchable screen presence!



Enviable fashion sense is something not many actresses in our industry have been blessed with, but one actress who has impressed us with her fashion sense is Zubab Rana. A budding actress and a beautiful model, Zubab Rana manages to light up the frame every time she appears on our screens. From ramps to dramas, there isn’t anything the actress can’t do.

Born on 3 June 1998, the young actress started her career with Naseebo Jali in 2017 and received a nomination for the Best Soap Actress at Hum Awards right with her debut role. This doesn’t only speak of the actress’s mettle as a performer, but it also helped her make her mark on the small screen in a short period of time. She then appeared in Mere Khudaya and Bandish, and again received a nomination for the former as the Best Emerging Talent at the Lux Style Awards.

That isn’t all. We haven’t just seen the actress making her mark on the screens, but she has also stolen the show every time she has appeared on the ramp. She has established herself as a successful model and is renowned for her effervescent charm as an actress and a model, both. Having started her career as a ramp model, there is no denying her talent on the ramp, but what took everyone by surprise was her talent on the screens as well.

After her powerful performance in Rishtay Biktay Hain in 2019, we can currently watch the actress starring in Mehboob Apke Qadmon Mein, a drama that revolves around the power of black magic, Zubab Rana has been weaving magic with her performance in the play. She is featured as Sunaina, a sweet and innocent girl who is in love with someone and wants to stay happily with her love. Zubab Rana’s acting makes you feel for Sunaina and all the problems in her way. In every scene, she stands out with her phenomenal acting, making us root for her.

So far, Zubab Rana has done wonderfully in every drama she appears in. It looks like the actress is on the rise, and we can’t wait to see where she would be heading next!

Only then we can get rid of the thorns”. the Singer Actor quoted whose foundation has so far distributed Rashan amongst almost 3500 families so far.

This Social Networking App is definitely the New Thing in Town



When boredom hits us hard, we all cuddle up to our social media accounts rooting around for something new and exciting. Right now, when the world has come to a standstill and people are ready to do anything to spice up their lives and when cooking, baking, watching, or reading looks so monotonous, we all are on the hunt for activities that put a little jazz to our dull days.

There are no real-life meetings, a cup of coffee, or a smoke break. All we have is our phone with the same contacts, plenty of work emails to respond, and some messages in the “other” section of our messenger. Some of us are so bored that we have gone through all those messages and some are on the verge of responding to those messages.

But, there is one thing that is keeping us occupied all of a sudden? As controversial as Tinder sounds, the long-lived thunder has been stolen by this new app called Bumble. You can either date or find BFF on the app depending on your preference. The dynamics of this app are slightly different from Tinder as it gives women the first right to make a move. Is this actually a conscious effort to change the patriarchy considering the fact women are entirely in control of choosing whoever they want to talk to and on the other hand, men do not have the option to initiate the conversation at all. This is probably one of the reasons for the app to flourish in a country like Pakistan where there is a pipping hot debate on feminism every now and then.

The main difference between Tinder and Bumble is the reliability of having a verified account. You cannot have an account on bumble without your picture and since the whole idea behind this app is about being kind, if there is slight misconduct from any party, the account gets suspended immediately for good and all. Unlike Tinder, Bumble gives you more details about the person in contact so, the swiping is not just about the looks here.

If we peek into the real world, there are very few opportunities to find friends or even a potential match once you are done with your school or college. Which means, a very little chance of getting your dupatta stuck in the button of his waistcoat. Such an app will put you closer to the network of a person who otherwise does not have the slightest chance of meeting you in real life. If not a match, you may end up finding some incredible friends that many people actually claimed to have found so. Hence, the dating pool is marginally better on this app.

The cons of having this app are “anything can happen”. Stay alert and know your moves. Don’t get caught into the traps of instant meetings or any kind of thugs disguised as a chum. Take time to know the person and learn about the similarities you have with them if any. These are the very basic tips that we need for any online encounter.
Although a lot of success stories have been witnessed through the app from outside Pakistan, the app is still less productive and less popular among the masses. It is either the pressure of being on a dating app or stigma attached to being associated with these apps. However, this pandemic does seem to change the whole narrative of online amity.
