ISLAMABAD: Eid Al-Fitr was a subdued and somber event in Pakistan this year due to the coronavirus pandemic and a PIA plane crash that claimed 97 lives in Karachi on Friday. The country’s celebrities opted to celebrate quietly at home, sharing the cheery outfits they wore on their respective social media. A trend of airy brights and pastels emerged with many stars taking cues from the summery weather on the hues they chose to rock.
Actor Ayesha Omar shared her icy blue look on social media from the set of her long-running sitcom “Bulbulay.” Blue was also the color of choice for fellow actor Sara Khan, who wore a periwinkle shade while performing hosting duties on ARY TV.
Actor Danish Taimoor shared a shot of himself flanked by his young children, all wearing pink. Like many stars, Taimoor acknowledged the darker Eid that had taken place and offered condolences to those affected by Friday’s plane crash.
Areeba Habib, model and actor, shared a shot of her and her mom in matching pink as well, geotagging the image with a popular location release being used by Instagram to spread awareness on COVID-19, “Stay Home, Stay Safe.”
A classic color choice for Eid, across the globe and across cultures, is white, worn by actor and television host Fahad Mustafa (and his mini-me sons), stylist Maryam Raja and fashion designer and television personality Hassan Shehryar Yasin.
Continuing with pastel and merry hues, stylist and fashion editor Mehek Saeed wore a pastel yellow suit punctuated with flowers and eye-catching (also pastel) shoes.
Actor Zhalay Sarhadi shared a photo of her and her daughter both in bright, saturated colors with Sarhadi also going for a yellow in a sunny shade.
