Anmol Baloch - The extraordinaire star

“I am one to opt for roles that encourage women to be brave and to change their situations if they are unhappy, rather than propagating the same image of a damsel in distress. I want the girls watching me to feel they can do anything.”

Actors are people of enormous influence. Celebrities influence everyday decisions of their fans, from what makeup brands to use to what restaurants to frequently visit to more serious decisions like what movement to support.

And Anmol Blaoch here is a socially responsible starlet who feels that her roles should be a reflection of her beliefs and how she would want women in the society to be. The above statement by Anmol dwell on the very thing. She wishes to play strong female leads.

Anmol Baloch, who defines herself as “a simple girl who loves simple pleasures in life”, was noticed for her roles in Saza-e-Ishq, Deewar-e-Shab, Aik Larki Aam Si, and Qurbatein. Since then, she has seen no dearth of offers. The talented, gazelle eyed actress has managed to gain a lot of recognition since her amazing performances. Her most recent venture was the drama serial Khwaab Nagar Ki Shehzadi in which she was seen in the lead role alongside Mikaal Zulfiqar and Mashal Khan. The actress whose path into the world of acting was paved “very much by accident” is now continuously climbing the ladder of success with her remarkable acting skills. Here, the starlet is all decked up in outfits that will help you plan your festive wardrobe. So, get your inspiration from the best in the biz.

While festive season brings a wave of cheer along with it, it also demands a wardrobe full of stop-and-stare ensembles. With the hot, sunny days almost gone, you know your social calendar is going to be brimming with social events in the coming months. Now whether you're planning on playing the host or merely attending a festive occasion at a relative's place, the one thing you will decidedly require is a stellar ethnic wardrobe.

Don't forget to stick to the dress code of the festivities as you plan your looks. While some occasions may call for kurtas and anarkalis, others will give you a chance to try an ethnic Western fusion. An anarkali AKA pishwas, for one, will never disappoint, whether you wear it for a wedding or to a close friend's elaborate party. Same goes for the classic A-line silhouette. Just remember to choose between heavily embellished numbers or simpler printed versions to channel different vibes. Or do a 360 and go with a short embellished kameez paired with a bell bottom trouser like this one in green. If you don't want to deal with hassle of too much fabric for the entire day, you can always count on a lambi kameez and straight pants set.

And while most of the festivities may not permit you to step out in a lehenga, there could not be a better time than an upcoming shaadi of a close friend or relative to experiment with all the kinds you can get your hands on. For inspiration, look towards this golden satin lehenga paired with a black embellished choli. And if you’re looking to add some twist to your age old choli, opt for a choli with a sheer fabric elongated to the length of the lehenga, like this one in ferozi.
