Best Dressed Celebrities For May

From Karachi to Cannes and beyond

By Mahvish Ahmed

Another month whizzes by and yet again we find our phones over burdened with all the photos we saved. Photos of celebrities nailing their style game. It is true that celebrities entertain us with their dramas, movies or whatever else they wish to do, but we need them in our lives for one more reason – to inspire us through their sartorial choices. Whether they are promoting their latest films or stepping out for a casual dinner, we have our eyes on them. They are the Regina George of our lives. If they say a sari over pants is a thing then we have to agree (only if they look nice in it).

May has been a happening month. Our stars showed us how to do casual chic like pro, while Bollywood divas gave us tips on the fashion dos and don’ts as they walked the prestigious red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival in Italy. Want to know who made it to our best dressed list for the month of May? Scroll down for the scoop.

The Hindi Medium star keeps it casual as she attends the first show of her film in Karachi in a ruffled white top paired with a monochrome skirt. She sure knows how to make an impact in a simple outfit and barely there makeup. Not really sure what Sheheryar Munawar was thinking with that hairstyle of his.

Ali, with her choice of a simple white top with statement sleeves, distressed skinnies, and a voluminous blow dry, shows us how to nail the relaxed summery look.

The rock star, all set to perform on stage, carries the colour blocked Khaadi Khaas handloom sari impeccably. We love the bold, bright hues of her outfit as well as the super voluminous bell sleeves. Some looks are just made for Shafi and this is one of those for sure.


Meesha Shafi, again

This lady wows us again with her laid back yet stylish day look. The combination of a blush pink blouse, high-waist cotton pants, and a fringe-y bag is smart casual done right. We love the white rimmed sunnies too!

Ayesha Omar

Omar, all set to record an Eid show, dazzles in a shimmery gold halter top paired with boot legged pants. It seems like this Tena Durrani outfit was made for Ayesha’s petite frame; Don’t you agree?


Sanam Saeed

Saeed stuns in this Sania Maskatiya gold ensemble and the heavily embellished peplum top, instead of looking OTT, looks super flattering on her. On a side note, she recently bagged the Best Actress trophy for ‘Rahm’ at the London Eastern Eye awards, so congratulations are in order!

Want to know how to dress down in summer yet look stylish and chic? Take cues from Amo B, who pairs a pastel button down shirt with ripped jeans and tan shoes. Adding a cool pair of sunnies and sleek ponytail on a hot day is sure to do the trick for you!

Mahira Khan

We know you love her when she goes all desi and so do we. Khan is sporting a luxurious chikankaari ghagra choli by Umar Sayeed here. The red chooriyaan add just the right amount of colour to her look and the little pair of jhumkis are the perfect accessory.


Kate Middleton


Doesn’t the duchess look absolutely beautiful in the summery pastel hue as she makes a royal visit to Luxembourg? She accessorizes just right with those little blue topaz and diamond drop earrings (which are worth £3,500 btw). She pairs her blue coat with nude heels and of course, her million dollar smile. Full marks for her to Kate Middleton!

Priyanka Chopra

Our favourite Hollywood girl, PC, is a sight to behold in this semi-sheer black floor length dress as she exits the studio of the Jimmy Kimmel Show after an interview earlier this month. Her lovely brown lip colour makes us want to invest in one and her flowing straight hair makes us want to ditch curls and waves for good!

Aishwarya Rai

Do we dig this outfit more than her Cinderella ball gown at the Cannes red carpet? Yes, of course! The 43 year old Bollywood star looks beautiful in this sheer multi layered green dress with big, bold floral motifs. She gets bonus points for those bright pink lips and multi colored accessories on the left arm!

Deepika Padukone

Basking in the Cannes sun, Padukone looks sensational in this between-nude-and-blush pink short satin dress. If you have ever wondered how to look glamorous with your hair swept up in a messy bun and barely there accessories, here’s your answer!

Sonam Kapoor

The Bollywood style diva brings the desi sari to Cannes and stuns in the six yards of silk draped on her rater unconventionally. The gold accessories add just the right amount of bling and the subtle lilac eye makeup is love!
