She is the accomplished, versatile face of Pakistan you want the world to see. For our cover shoot, she wears Debenhams new line of evening wear that is chic and versatile - pull on a legging or a bolero, throw on a scarf or a beret, the choice is yours. It’s no coincidence that she also features in our Style Stopper segment. It’s our yearly round up of the best dressed people who made a mark with their individual styles and quirky accessories. There is more on the accessories front too – who can resist the embellished clutches, glitzy gold hues and stones that dazzle - with pages 32-33 packed to the brim with what’s available to glam up your winters.
That Shehla Chatoor is both eclectic and uber stylish was never in doubt and on page 21 she takes you through 7 ways in which you can wear one stunning double sided tasseled cape. It’s the perfect accessory for winter nights that call for warmth, style and distinction.
And so the year winds down in all its fast paced fury. We live in a part of the world that’s constantly bubbling both above and below the surface. The trick is to strike your own balance between hedonism and drudgery. I’m a believer in letting go; of grievances, of relationships gone sour, of imagined slights and whispered baits. Charged with positivity you can scale greater heights and that has to be the mantra for 2014. Till then, hasta la vista.
