So Humaima Malick has been pretty busy lately promoting her first Bollywood movie “Raja Natwarlal” alongside Emraan Hashmi her co-star. What I’ve been noticing is that how professional India is in promoting their movies, casts and crews. They pay attention to each and every detail so and so that whichever Pakistani artist crosses the border, they suddenly transform into stars and are so well-groomed then ever before. I mean look at Fawad Afzal Khan for example:
And then he crosses the border and POOOOOOOOOOF!!!
I mean WOW!
Anyways, so back to Humaima;
It’s amongst the Bollywood culture to promote their movies at various events, tv shows, cities and through social media. Hence, Humaima is being seen around quite a lot since the last month. She even has her new official Facebook page being managed by Kiara Advani in India. Here’s a roundup of her appearances starting with the best ones:
This was undoubtedly the best look from all of the rest at least! Promoting on the sets of India’s Best Cine Stars Ki Khoj Humaima was wearing a Pankaj and Nidhi sheer top with a white Alexander Wang skirt, spiked cuff and pale grey pointed heels. Styling by Kshitij Kankaria.
At the Raja Natwarlal press meet Humaima wore a Pinko dress with earrings by Manish Arora for Amrapali. Paired with nude heels, she looked fairly good (despite the really bad hemming).
Another ensemble which faired well:
A tropical printed crop top and skirt by Nitya Bajaj, spiked cuff and black pointed heels. Although the print doesn’t bowl me over but the styling saves the whole look.
These stood out for me. The rest was a series of some averages and misses mostly, here are the details:
At the Raja Natwarlal wrap party Humaima wore a Zara lace skirt with a Mango top, DVF yellow clutch and nude Steve Madden heels.
For the theatrical trailer launch, Humaima supported a monochrome outfit by Missa more. Belted at the waist with nude heels and minimalist styling. This would have been a much better look had the hair not been so drab. They still look reasonable in this click but by the time she reached the venue they went haywire – not a nice sighting!
Next up, Humaima was seen wearing a Zara top, Diesel Denims, Aquamarine jewelry and Zara shoes.
Okay this was the worst of them all:
At Radio City, Bandra Mumbai for the promo event Humaima wore a sheer Zara dress over a white camisole and denim shorts. The sheer dress is chic as a separate but with those horrible denims oh no!
Carrying on her promotions at PVR, Mumbai, Humaima wore a McQ by Alexander McQueen mesh top paired with a Zara skirt, Zara ankle boots. I love the skirt as a separate but as for the whole look, is it just me getting the robotic/futuristic vibes?
For her promotional event in Matunga, Humaima wore a white cutout dress with a red pout and sleek hairdo. Mesh dress by Soak clothing paired with gold pointed heels.
Promoting her movie on the sets of “Jhalak Dikhlaja”, Humaima took the eastern route and wore a black and gold Rick Roy saree with jewelry by Curio Cottage.
And now the cherry on the top for all things worse:
At the Enigma Club, Humaima wore a printed pale blue shirt with faded denim, a studded gold belt and the ugliest maroon high top boots. Not working, disastrous!
Before we see more fairly average appearances, Humaima seriously has to do something about that cheek contouring!
Raja Natwarlal comes out on 29th August 2014; happy watching!!!
